      Need some advice

      Hi,

      I play with hurricane 3 on both sides. Use 37 hardness on backhand and 40 on forehand. I have a tournament coming up in 10 days.I want to reboost my rubbers. Is it a better idea to reboost now or about 2 days before the tournament.What do you guys think from your experience? Please let me know.

      Thanks.

      I personally wouldn't do over 1 layer just to be safe, but you need other opinions.

      Me personally, 2 days before, is too risky if you don't get the feel you want, again get other opinions.

      You need at least 5 days to boost and let the rubber flatten.

      Boosters gonna boost, of course. Power to you.

      I'd rather not, and have shunned rubbers that are unplayable unless treated with virgin oils while dancing at midnight in the light of the full moon. I've had this adversity ever since, as a young player, people started to speedglue. To me, a hassle and a put-off; for others a ritual that probably served as a confidence booster as much as it affected actual playing characteristics. Diff'rent strokes, of course.

      It did and does make me wonder. If you treat your equipment with substances that modify/enhance performance, which gradually wear off, how do you achieve sufficient reliability? I've seen Zagreb's Lion speedglue his Srivers before every match, but that's not a feasible approach with today's booster oils, is it?
