      the maximum someone could boost is a rubber with a thickness of 4.04 mm so it barely passes the thickness control test. i guess you have to test with your personal methods till you find the maximum you can go.

      If you use 2.0 sponge, you can boost as much as you want.

      Without knowing for sure I believe at least Ma Long gets his rubbers already boosted from DHS. The tv show host who visited him at his home went through his suitcase and his rubbers came neatly packaged in a plastic container. He could surely have put them there himself but also look how surgically cut the rubbers of all CNT players are done, I honestly find it hard to believe they cut all those rubbers by themselves that nicely. It's done at DHS, that's my belief.

      There are pictures online of them cutting themselves... Don't forget that they probably cut two rubbers a week and have done so for 10+ years. You'd get pretty good at cutting rubbers after a thousand times!

      Maybe so, I've never seen Ma Long do it himself though, only Xu Xin.

      I think how many layers they use depends a bit on how hard/soft rubber they want.

      I don’t think you can put more than 4 layers.The rubber will be too curled I guess.

      WELCOME TO A GLUING ROOM.
      Some interesting idea has now cropped up within ITTF EQ, that players should do all the gluing works in one assigned place only. All the rubbers should be inside standard, sealed envelope, as it comes from manufactory.

      Considering some players may play with the same bat as the day before, and so will take it to their hotel, I can't see how that would change anything.
      Glue some rubbers in front of everyone at the end of practice. Go home and put the rubbers you want for the next day. Rince and repeat.
      To try or not to try?

      This wouldn't stop Chinese players from boosting, considering DHS makes personalized rubbers for them and could boost them before packaging. ITTF rules prohibits boosting done by players, however it does not say anything about factory tuning. I always thought this is kinda ridiculous. If a national association has the resources to get a factory to do boosting for its players, then you can effectively circumvent this rule.
