      Does repeated glueing ruin the sponge?

      I have recently bought a sheet of Nittaku Hurricane 3 Blue Pro Turbo, it is only 5 weeks ols, but it seems to have lost its speed already, I have glued it about ten times as I have been trying it on different blades.

      Would this ruin the sponge, I have only being putting glue on the blade not the sponge apart from the first glueing?

      It's a good question. I am also curious to know the answer.

      Are you keeping the old glue layer on the sponge since you say you only put glue on the blade? If so you have about 10 layers of glue on the sponge, I would imagine that can have a negative effect. But in any case I don't like to reglue too often, mainly due to shrinkage of the rubber. It wouldn't surprise me if some rubbers lose their properties if they are glued too often.

      My bet would be that it's just the factory boosting fading off. Don't hit so hard, play less often and it'll last longer

      Yes it could be that, it has had a lot of use too.

      5 weeks sounds about right for "factory tuning". Boost some more. Or better yet, try speed glue.

      i am not messing about with boosting, i think i might just use tenergy, i cant be messing about with a new sheet every 5 weeks not at 45 euros a sheet.

      maybe having two blades would help, then see if i can get 2 months out of a sheet.

      Considering gas, parking, club fees, energy bars, after match drinks, your EJ spending habits, and wife appeasement dinners, 45 Euros a month should be the least of your worries .

      Chinese rubbers that are boosted need a monthly reboosting.

      Yogi, Patrick says this nittaku hurricane does not re boost well at all, and i respect patrick's opinions, he is well informed and sensible in his opinions about equipment

      I only glue rubber two times... Newer more. I do not like it after third glue.... The sponge is definitely different... The same for boosted or unbosted versions

      I think gluing multiple times will definitely impact the characteristics of the sponge. I used to try to peel off the glue layer before regluing but I found it next to impossible to do so on euro/jap sponges without tearing up the sponge. I started just applying glue on the previous layer and after 3-4 times the glue layer becomes noticeably thick. I'd imagine a thick layer of glue could reduce the impact of your blade on the ball.
