ok so I never used speed glue or booster glue before. Its all new to me. I ordered stuff without really knowing what is what.

First I ordered this:


Now, it says its speed glue. Not booster. Whats the difference? And how do I use this? Same way as booster glue?

Then I ordered the Haifu Seamoon yellow booster glue. I think I know how to use this. First thin layer of regular glue on sponge. dry. then apply 1 thin layer booster. wait 24 hours. repeat up to 3 times. then wait 24 hours more. glue to blade. correct?

The other speedglue I got from Loki I use same way? Does it even work?

Basically you use speed-glues the same way as water-based ones. They have temporary effect on boosting your rubbers, but the boosting effect wears out really fast, so back then the pros used to glue their rubbers on right before each matches, usually with multiple layers. They're banned due to potential health risk, so boosters would be a bit safer.

1- put speed glue to your gym bag
2- go to table tennis club
3- take out rubbers, apply generous amount speed glue
4- thin layer on blade
5- wait a little not much
6- stick rubbers to blade
7- wait a couple minutes
8- enjoy amazing sound, spin, speed, feeling (and smell)

If you want more effect, you can additionally add a little some gasoline (yes for cars)

Good, old, unhealthy days 🥲

100% clear answer : MAYBE !! 😂

I got this very Loki green bottle and it is not boosting the rubber at all. The sign that a liquid is boosting the sponge is normally that the rubber is starting to bow. This loki glue is not. It is however a fast way of gluing the rubber to the blade as it only takes a couple of minutes to dry .
HOWEVER : I have been told that there is a loki speed booster that is sold in the same green bottle. 😮😮😮😮

Keep the stuff just in case you once need to change a rubber real quick. 1 layer on the blade and 2 on the rubber and within 3 minutes you got the new rubber on the blade ready to go and play.

This LOKI speed glue looks a bit like the Haifu Whale or Dolphin glues in view and in description. If it's similar, it's not a really good glue, so I would recommend using a waterbased glue to attach the rubber. It might be more of a fast booster with much shorter time of effect, so you use this the day that you will play and the effect will wear off more and more the coming week. The effect might come very quickly when applying it and might disappear fast as well.

The Haifu Seamoon boosters are a bit different. They take longer for the rubber to suck in, and they'll keep the effect for 1-2 months, gradually getting weaker.

But if you're in a hurry getting your rubber to expand, the speed glue/booster is really nice.

in your experience does it make the rubber stick ok well?
Also how is it taking it off the sponge at a later time? possible? or destroys the sponge?

As you are asking me, the glue sticks well and the rubbers came off without damage.
I found it not as easy to apply as the waterbased glue because it virtually dries under the brush and is quite difficult therefore to spread evenly.
