But. The H8 is heavy and total weight is ≈199g. The blade is 91g so each cut sheet of rubber is 54g. It would be nice to have something a little lighter. I realize H3 is slower than H8 unless you boost. But I hate the smell of booster, including factory booster. H3 Neo absolutely stinks. H8 on the other hand doesn’t stink, plays well, but is heavy.

      Here is the question then.

      Is it possible to put together some lighter combo of unboosted H3 (say provincial blue sponge on FH and provincial orange sponge at 37-38 hardness on BH) that would play well? Or are those rubbers designed to be boosted and the whole idea is moot? Or is 199g totally fine and I should just stick with it?

      I’m still a developing player and don’t mind working a bit to build technique, as long as the setup makes sense.
      the booster do not smell ... the sponge it self smells but not the booster.

      TTD has a thread talked about the news of this blade.

      Whatever they do to the Neo (and for example Jupiter 2) smells really bad. H8 doesn’t smell like that, neither do the provincial H3 rubbers that my coach uses. I have a whole thread about this topic so we needn’t debate that here.

      To my understanding is that by leaving the plastic film on, you're not letting the booster do what it's intended which is to stretch the topsheet giving that trampoline effect.

      Furthermore, I'd imagine that'd put a lot of stress on the glue joints from pips to sponge when the sponge is trying to expand but the topsheet can't expand with it all because the film is still attached.
