Hey guys, Anyone have this problem ? No spin reversal at all despite the fact I have a quite new sheet of a Super Glanti on a good blade. Is it because of the humidity and the heat ? After a few blocks I noticed there is some wet marks on the topsheet. Can't wipe it each point, and it's quite hard to wipe when even my towel is wet :rofl:

Quite strange because usually humidity is a nightmare for loopers so theoretically it would make us glanti player happy.

Get some device to evaluate air relative humidity. Rh 70% and over will affect rubber frictionality pretty much.

Be happy.

I think it's the humidity! I live in the desert where it's hot and dry (humidity except for summer <10%) but just the temperature doesn't cause this here. I used to travel to Portland, OR, on business a lot for a while and it has been a big problem for me there in particular in fall and winter when the humidity was very high but temps were not. Like you my reversal suffered a lot and my GlAnti also became a lot more spin sensitive on serve return.
