Hello, I'm a normal table tennis player and I wanna speed glue my bat because the speed glue is very cheap and has a lot inside one.
Even though it is illegal now, what will happen when i do it and play in a tournament (under 15)
And is it true that you must replace the glue every week?
When you're glueing again, do you have to peel the old glue off?
There are a couple of things with speed glue. FIrstly it is illegal because it does enhance your performance. If you leave it for a week or so the effect will wear off.
One of the main reasons speed glue was banned was because the fumes of many of them are harmful. I wouldn't recommend anyone especially a junior using it for this reason alone.
If there is a build up of glue on the back of your rubber it is best to remove it because it will effect the performance of the rubber. However that is not easy sometimes.
