      Why is my rubber not doming after boosting?

      Hello, I'm trying boosting for the first time on a H3 neo and I'm using the Falco tempo long booster. I applied it after putting a thin layer of glue on the rubber just as the instructions said and waited until it dried to apply the glue. However, after waiting for eight hours, I still don't see the doming effect that I expected. Should I wait longer? Did I do something wrong?

      How many layers of Falco did you put on the sponge?

      Don't people usually put 2 or 3 layers of boost on if it is H3?

      yeah but I think you have to let it dry first. In my case, after a while where it was supposed to dome, it still hasn't it just feels like wet glue. I was going to apply more but there is still no doming yet.

      Wet glue? How much did you put on? Got a pic?
      I have only been playing for about a year, so please take that into consideration when considering any advice I try to give you. Thanks.

      I don't have a picture but the glue was pretty much dried when I put the booster on.

      What do you meant it feels like wet glue?

      I brushed a thin layer on a Stiga Genesis rubber and it domed no problem. It does not feel like wet glue.

      I don't remember how long I had to wait with FTL for the second layer but if you are not sure if the first layer is dry why don't you wait longer . You will need at least two layers for it to curl the rubber if it hadn't been boosted before

      Oh haha sorry I meant that the booster felt like wet glue but as of now it just looks like I never put any booster on in the first place

      H3 neo has a layer of glue on it right out of the packaging. Perhaps 1 layer is not enough to get through this?

      Possible, the sponge moisture level of this sheet out of the packaging was below normal.

      1 - what version of H3 is it? Provincial and national versions dome better than the commercial version.

      2- Neo H3 needs to be left out of the vacuum pack for a day or two before applying booster. This allowed the pre-applied glue to dry up.

      3 - yeah you probably haven't waited enough

      All the best

      Just apply a second layer and see what happens. If when you wrote the OP, it was 8 hours after applying the first layer of boost, then now it is about 18 hours later. I would add a second and then decide if you want to add a 3rd layer a few hours later.
