      H3 Neo blue sponge - booster needed to perform better than Neo orange sponge?

      are there any experiences / opinions on the performance of the H3 Neo blue sponge without using extra tuner?

      Currently, I'm using H3 Neo orange Sponge 39° untuned and it fells quite good.

      Will an untuned neo bluesponge be an upgrade in spin and speed?

      Or is it really only better if it was tuned properly?

      Both needs to be tuned whatever the color. I myself likes the orange 39 degree provincial version b3cause it feels softer than blue.

      I tuned my 41 degree National BS almost a year ago with 4 layers of Haifu black oil. The boost effect is gone but I have no problems playing well with it now. All those hours playing have practically softened the sponge

      While many ambitioned upcoming youngsters boost like there is no tomorrow, i meanwhile also got to know quite a few older players that play very well with H3neo and don't even spend a thought about boosting their rubbers. If I recall correctly even Rokphish doesn't boost his H3neos.

      If you play with my backup racket which was boosted last year and then switch to my main racket which was boosted a few weeks ago even beginners can feel a major difference between these two.

      But in the end it boils down to personal preferences.
      Some like it boosted - some don't.

      Then again the ones that don't boost also rather play with provincial orange sponge, the ones who care for blue sponge also care for boosting.
