All water-based glues adhere more strongly to the blade than the earlier generation of rubber cement glues. When you remove any rubber from any blade using any water-based glue, you must take it off very carefully. Take the rubber off at an angle, against the wood grain. If there is any resistance at all, use drops of acetone between the sponge and the blade to dissolve the glue and protect both your blade and rubber from damage. When you glue with water-based glue, it takes longer to dry and at first does not adhere the rubber as well to the blade than non-water-based glues. After a few hours, the bond becomes quite strong. It is a good idea to glue the rubber several hours before you play, and be sure to use great care any time you remove the rubber!
