How the title is saying "How often do you reglue and change your rubbers?"

and.. Somewhere I read that regluing your rubbers make them better or maybe it gives some more grip. I have bought t80 and played with it i dunno maybe 2 weeks and it lost its grip. Is it true that when I reglue the rubbers it gives some grip ? I'm new with gluing and a TT too i have just played for almost year. And how often do you change the rubbers and the blade? As I wrote I am playing almost year (3/4 maybe) and for a year I had still same rubbers (G3-FX and Sriver FX) and after they lost the grip i changed them (before the 2 weeks and bought t80 with acuda s2). And the problem is if I should reglue the rubbers or try something else? I am cleaning them with most with a water and when I have tournament or some match I clean them with some donic with mentol smell. Is it problem too that I clean it with still another types of cleaners? (water and two donics)

Thanks :)

You should reglue your rubbers maybe once a month, if they stick of they are starting to vibrate and that is not good

I reglue if it is coming off somewhere and I replace the rubbers every 2 months playing daily so I don't re glue a lot.

Yea but never heard of regluing because of lost grip ?

Regluing with water based glue will have zero effect on rubber surface grip.

in my opinion regluing doesn't effected the rubber grip. for the time to replace the rubber it's depend on your feeling that the rubber has no more grip that the time you can thinking of finding a new one(but not just 2 week for sure you can use water or cleaner to extend the rubber grip)

You also asked how often do you change the blade?

In my opinion, find a blade you love and use it until it breaks... then get the same one again haha. As far as changing the rubbers I only change them when they lose grip and I really don't think regluing would have any effect...
