When you glue your rubbers, do you just glue it once and use it until it is warn out, or do you often re glue your rubber and if you do re glue your rubber, how often do you do it?

I glue my rubbers once and wear them until they're warn out. I'm not a fan of glueing them so often ;)

Back in the day of speed glue, people used to take their rubbers off and re-glue pretty much every time they played. These days, people who boost, when the boost wears out, in about 3-5 weeks, will often take the rubbers off, re-boost and then re-glue. Every so often I will slam the edge of my racket, take the rubbers off, fix the edge of the racket, boost the rubber, and re-glue. But, if there is no real reason to take the rubbers off, and you are just gluing with the standard Water Based glue that the ITTF wants people to use on their rackets, then there is no real reason to re-glue.

Right now, my rubbers have been on without me messing with them for a few months.

When I could play daily, I had no real need to re-glue... I was wearing out the rubber too fast!

Sometimes, I would try such and such new rubber on my main bat, so in that case I would test, then re-glue old rubber on the bat again.
