    The web store where I’m buying my racket has two options: 2 layers on the rubbers 1 layer on the blade and 3 layers on the rubbers and 2 on the blade.

    I do two layers on the rubber one on the blade with rev 3. This is because I lose patience for so many layers. Either will be fine!

    Btw does it stick good? Like no peeling or something like that.

    It sticks very well, I usually use 2 on blade, 3 on rubber, if you’re getting bored waiting for layers to dry, use a hairdryer to speed things up a little.
    Revo 3 comes in 3 viscosities, (thickness) I normally use the ‘normal’ viscosity version.
    if done correctly, when replacing rubbers, it should peel of the blade pretty easily, (don’t let this fool you, it’s still well glued.) leaving none or hardly any glue on the blade. Then once you get an ‘edge’ of peeled glue on the sponge it can sometimes peel away in one piece, but usually is fairly easy to remove from the sponge as well.😀

    Remember to clamp or put it under books, especially new rubbers that are freshly cut!

    Bigger pores and boosted, domed rubber could need more layers, but normally 1 on blade and 2 on rubber...

    Well my racket is going to be assembled in the store. But I think they do that because my rackets that i have ordered there we’re glued perfectly. But if not I’ll put some books on it.

    Using hairdryer to speed things up destroys the properties of the rubber. Here is Dima explaining it.

    I chose 3 on rubbers and 2 on blade. Evolution el-s is my pick of rubber.

    Dina said it softens up the rubber and changes the bounce (later on) not ‘destroys’ the rubbers properties!!
    Generally I don’t use a hairdryer, but if pressed for time then I would. But I agree that that it’s best to let dry naturally.
