    Well. The original 729 V-6 blade is a smaller one, but I'm always careful so I don't stretch new rubbers when putting them on. What I have experienced is that softer sponged rubbers tend to shrink more. I mean the first 3-5 times I move the rubbers, there's no problem. Usually when I put it in a plastic bag for storage some time, and then want to use it again, there has been some shrinkage going on. So I wonder if there's not any drying out process that make rubbers shrink a bit over time?

    My experience is that after expanding the rubber sooner or later it shrinks back. Someone in the previous posts mentioned already that the first time we cut the rubber have to wait till the glue is completely dry and try not to stretch. This may prevent extreme rubber shrinkage

    That's for sure, but I always wait for the glue to completely dry. Else it doesn't hold. And I haven't used booster before, so there's nothing that should expand the rubber then I think?
