I've changed rubbers today and weighted the Tibhar Duo glue sheets that I had used.
The weight as you can see in photo 1 is 5.42grams.
I had also kept an older pair of same brand glue sheets and their weight is 5.30grams (photo 2).
So I guess an average weight for this brand is about 5.3 -5.5 grams per pair.

For my new rubbers (which are exactly the same as the old ones) I've used Victas glue sheets to try them and the whole racket came about 2.5 grams lighter but this may mean that the rubbers are lighter, not the glue sheets.

My questions:

1. Has any of you used any other brand of glue sheets, just to compare weights?
2. Has any of you weighted the glue residues on the blade and on the rubbers, just to make a comparison?

I have never played with Chinese rubbers and never heard about pre-applied glue.
So H3Neo doesn't need additional glue on the sponge? You only put glue on the blade?
Yes, I did it but with Yinhe rubbers. Some recommend to apply a layer of own glue anyway in case the factory one is a bit too old and less sticky.

To me it worked well with just a glue on the blade.

Interesting.
In 2021 Xiom introduced something similar, the iSwitch Vega Pro rubber, but I haven't seen it in any store.


it's a pity that this technology hasn't been implemented in all their rubbers.
