      The possibility to remove old glue definely depends on type of glue. It was also way easier in my opinion with spedglue.

      [QUOTE=lodro;325037][QUOTE=burhanayan

      Steps;
      1) Put paper onto glue layer
      2) Hold iron few seconds on paper
      3) Remove paper
      4) Rub heated glue layer with back of spoon
      5) Repeat this until all glue is removed

      This is the best solution that I used so far. Maybe few sponge particles come off. If you are careful and glue is heated enough, you can remove glue perfectly"

      YEP !!!
      Thanking you kindly heating it with the old iron did the job.
      I managed to lift an edge of glue up and then could pull the whole glue
      off just like they show in the Evo 3 videos.

      1000 thanks[/QUOTE]I am glad that it worked for you too.

      By the way, I tested this with Revolution 3, Freechack pro, a WBG from Donic. All worked fine.

      So I just tried the hot iron, paper and spoon method. Not too happy about the results...

      Maybe the iron was too cold? Guys who tried this method, for how long do you keep the iron on the paper? Should the paper stick to the glue?

      One can also use a hair dryer to heat up the WBG layer and then gently scrape it off. The key is to be patient.

      Seriously, start using Nittaku Finezip instead. It's sooo elastic. Much easier to get of. Most of the times there's almost no glue left on the blade, when the rubber is removed. Especially if it's presealed. That Also means that it's easier to remove from the sponge, because the layer is thicker. I actually removed glue from a rubber in one go once by keeping my fingers under the glue and pulling in different directions without breaking the glue. Quite satisfying.

      Wouldn't ironing affect the topsheet despite having sponge and also paper during ironing?

      Yes, that's what I was also worried about. Well, so I damaged the sponge with the spoon instead of the heat

      Just bought some revolution no. 3 glue after watching their video on removing it from the sponge - looks amazing. I think Nittaku Finezip was mentioned in this thread as one of the glue types which are hard to remove? Quote: "Most of the ESN glues are really easy to deal with when it comes to rubber removal. Donic, Xiom, Andro etc.
      Butterfly and Nittaku glues will most of the time create a too strong bond".

      P.S. My Tear Mender order from amazon is still on its way, I'm curious if that method would work. Still have one sheet of Rakza (this time 7, not Z) with remains of Free Chack glue deadly stuck on it.

      I tried even on H3N Blue Sponge. Nothing has happened yet. Just put iron enough to soften the glue, not to melt the glue completely

      I remember the time I removed glue perfectly from T05 without any sponge rip by heating the glue often.

      Unless there's a problem with the initial gluing, there's little benefit removing the old layer. The glue layer will harden after a few months, but usually it's also time for a new sheet anyway.

      Nevertheless, there's evidence that a fresh layer of Finezip increases bounce and that a thick Butterfly Free Chack glue layer decreases bounce.

      Still, repeatedly removing the rubber, especially with porous sponge, could cause the gas to permeate through the cell walls or even burst the cells, leading to further shrinkage in addition to wear and tear.

      For sure cutting a new piece takes much less effort than removing glue from an old one.

      Ok makes sense. At least it will soften the glue.

      The voc-free Butterfly glue I recently got on a pre-assembled racket was very difficult to remove. Not very elastic. So hard to pull off. Nittaku Finezip is much easier. But still difficult. Takes some time. There might be glues out there that are much easier of course
