    Has anybody ever boosted AK47 red?

    Has anybody ever tried boosting AK47 red sponge? It's a fairly hard sponge, so it may be able to take on a light layer of boosting.

    If you have tried, how did the performance change?

    I've tried it with AK-47 Blue, and the feedback I've received from several opponents, is that my top-spins have a good amount of kick to them...

    BTW, I boosted a rubber that was already more than a year old, and glued it to an ALL+ blade.

    Did the boosted ak47 feel too mushy?

    I think some rubber dont really benefit from booster. I put a little booster on Presto Speed Max, and i dont think it was better.

    Nope... didn't feel mushy to me.. The All+ blade I glued it onto, has above average stiffness..

    Did you feel any extra boost in speed or spin?

    sure did .. found a difference, not just in speed and spin, but also an increase in rebound and arc..

    The amazing part is that I boosted the rubber after almost a year of using it (without any boosting), and still got good increase in performance.. The down-side was that the top-sheet started to delaminate from the sponge, within 2 weeks of boosting... But, I have faced the same issue even with unboosted AK47s - The top-sheet begins to separate from the sponge within 3-4 months of regular play.
