I have recently replaced one of my rubbers with a Tibhar Evolution MX-P. However after playing with it for a few hours I have realized that it was coming off a bit on the edges, so I had to take it off and glue it again.

I have read somewhere that tensor rubbers might shrink after taking them off the bat. That did not happen, my rubber's size remained the same. However, it seems that it became a bit slower and not as bouncy compared to the first time it was on the bat.

What are your experiences related to this topic? Has anyone observed a similar behaviour?

depends how much you stretch it when rolling it on the first time.

Boosting has started to wear off, probably. Or maybe the second glue job wasn't optimal?

This is common and noticeable problem associated with most of these tensor or pre-stretched rubbers. At my club, a number of players have talked about this and they seemed quite disappointed. From my experience, I would say that many of these tensor-like rubbers will shrink if you remove such a rubber from a blade and reglue it to a another blade. Furthermore, you will find that the tensor effects of that particular rubber have diminished to a great extent.

According to my experience,some of the worst rubbers in this regard are Xiom Vega Europe, Donic Blue Fire M3, Blue Fire JP03 and Stiga Airoc S. Strangely enough, Stiga Calibra LT Sound rubber will not shrink although it will lose its tensor effects very soon. Another noticeable exception is Stiga Boost TX and it will not shrink while retaining the tensor effects for a longer time.

Najay, this makes me want to glue another brand new MX-P on my backhand and compare the two, to see how much difference there is going to be.

Rakza 7 soft shrunk a lot when I peeled it off and reglued it. Surprisingly though, it still performed well.

I figure in a week or so I'll dismount the sheet of MX-P for Seamooning or Falco-ing and can tell you how much it's shrunk.

I've been swapping and changing rubbers a bit lately and today went to put my Vega Europe DF on a different blade. It's shrunk so much that I really don't think I can get it back on. It's now in the garage with some baby oil sinking in but it's not ideal for what was a very good rubber. Unfortunately it looks like I need a new one.

Not worth it, $30 a bottle.

Baby oil aka Paraffin oil works very very well with Classic Euro and most Chinese rubbers. Anything from MarkV, 729 superFX , Palio CJ8000, DHS H3/H3N/TG2/TG2N/H3-50/TG3-60 :lol:

But I DON'T RECOMMEND Baby oil on Tensors ! Probably Falco Tempo ( or the Long) would work much better with all types of rubbers far more effectively and quicker.

And no more than 1 or 2 layers on the first attempt.

Too late. Mines currently drowning in baby oil. Little choice, need to stretch it a bit.
