      I'm trying to boost for the first time and I've opened the vacuum and removed the white protective film from the sponge. On the sponge is another clear layer, is this the factory tuning and do I boost on top of it or remove this clear layer? I tried to remove it from one of the blue sponges but I gave up since only a corner was easy to remove so I gave up.

      DHS calls that layer the primer. No one really knows for sure what they have done to it at the factory. Some speculate it is just glue. Some say it is boosted glue. Some say it is there to protect the sponge, and/or the bond b/w sponge and topsheet. Whatever the case, leave it on. Put a layer or two of booster over it.

      I recommend the Sandwich boosting method.
      It is explained by prott.vip
      you can find it, if you go to the side and scroll down. On the left there should be an icon called experience sharing.
      the method is Sth called like "how the CNT retune factory tuned rubbers" or similar but there is also more interesting information.

      try it out

      That's just normal glue to as the foundation.

      You can just directly apply oil on that, or you can put 1-2 layer of glue first then 2 layers of oil .

      Normally, when I open a new neo, I will just put 1 layer of glue (plus the factory one it will be 2 layers) and 2 layers of oil.


      You can put oil directly to the factory glue. It increases the boosting effect. but in turn, it kills the sponge quicker.
      Feel free to ask me anything about Chinese equipment... Hurricane, w968, 506, n301....

      Thanks! But the "fishy" smell is terrible though I'm boosting 4 rubbers at the same time, maybe that enhances the smell somewhat

      Yea that smell is typical hurricane. Even you buy the non-neo version (like the white paper national), it still has the smell. The smell is not from neo-boosting.

      Is there still some sort of break-in period when you boost Hurricane?

      Recently boosted a new sheet and clearing the net isn't as easy as before. Or maybe it's because the previous one was 39 and new one is 40..

      Boosted with 2 layers of Falco Temp Long.

      Thanks

      Yes there is a little break in period. But when you boost, you simply shorten it to several hours of playing (4-6 hours).

      I think it is more because of 40 degree.

      Wa! Ai=ya! Jen bu shi dongxi a! Sonuvaseacook! Hot mercy Martha! 151 posts on boosting your Hurricane! Even a video in English on how to do it!

      Fascin-a-freakin'-ating!

      So what happens if you don't boost your Hurricane? Zombie apocalypse?

      Correct me if I'm mistaken, but isn't boosting any rubber with a boosting oil kinda well sorta maybe um er ahem just a little bit illegal according to ITTF rules, even though boosting with a boosting oil can't presently be detected?

      New and improved giant economy sized ponging through chemistry? Damn straight.

      My commercial h3 neo with 3 layers of falco is very curved. 12 hours still do not pass but my question is ... if the rubber is still very curved after 12-24 hours should I stick it to the blade? Let 12-15 hours pass before putting on each layer of falco. sorry my bad english thanks
