Falco Tempo Long Booster provides a safe, VOC free, speed glue effect to your rubbers.
Effective 8 to 12 weeks. Unlike regular boosters it gives very consistent long-term performance.
Falco Tempo Booster is an alternative to speed glue. It is VOC-free and compliant with ITTF regulations.
Boosters are not glues so water-based glue is still required to attach the rubber to the blade after boosting. Boosters improve the speed and spin of the rubber sheet while giving you a better feel of the ball.
How to apply Falco Long Booster:
1. Remove any plastic cover or protection sheet from the rubber's topsheet. This will reduce strain on the topsheet as the rubber sheet expands with the booster.
Megaspin.net consulted ITTF about whether using this product complies with ITTF regulations. We were told you cannot boost a sponge without an influence on the top sheet and we were referred to the law below:
2.04.07 The racket covering shall be used without any physical, chemical or other treatment.
As stated by the ITTF, a racket covering should be used as it has been approved. The ITTF does not approve a racket covering, but rather the ￼ Top-sheet ￼ (the black or red rubber). Then manufacturers may choose a type of sponge that could hard or soft, thin or thick, boosted or not! Moreover, any player may change the sponge and use the sponge of his choice (this is very common in Asia). So Falco boosting is 100% legitimate: this technique does not touch the approved rubber since it only ￼ boosts ￼ the sponge previously unglued.

Its a great booster, i use it for all chinese rubber I've had or still own. Really give you ball feel and can put more spin and speed while not sacrificing control.
Wow! Stuff is good! Just takes a long time for the rubber to curl up and flatten out but it's amazing afterwards.
a booster which has a very profound and direct effect on the sponge, sponge hardness and speed of the rubber. several tests done on different types of rubbers were done and these are the results:
1 layer = for chinese rubbers, it has some speed increase but no noticeable softening of the sponge hardness. Slight or almost no doming of the rubber observed. About a notch or 2 increase in speed. Euro or Jpn rubbers that are soft or medium soft have visible doming observed;
2 layers = visible doming effect on both chinese , euro and jpn rubbers. Speed increase is obvious bet. 1 and 2 layers. I don't recommend more than 2 layers for non chinese rubbers. Only 1 layer is enough for the soft rubbers.;
3 layers = maximum effect with almost a letter "U" doming shape. Doming will flatten in a span of 4-5 days. The booster is best use for chinese rubbers like Hurricane 3 or Skyline 2 and 3.
- Compared to X-treme Power Booster, the Falco Long booster has a thicker liquid property. It also has a greater speed glue effect on the sponge. In a sense, the Falco Long has an aggressive effect on the sponge while the X-treme Power Booster, has a milder effect. The Falco seems to have a longer effect than the X-treme Power Booster, in terms of longevity of the speed glue effect by 1-2 weeks. The X-treme Power Booster on the other hand can keep the rubbers life longer because it has a milder effect.
Adds speed. Lasts at least a month. A great product for some sponges. You can (legally) tune a sponge, then attach a sheet of topsheet and make a rubber that matches a 50 high tensor. Works great for both SP and some styles of LP. Alternately, some preassembled Chinese rubbers will take a good tune. Watch out for multiple layers though, it's easy to overtune a sheet (and make it too fast, with not enough spin to control it). At that point, the rubber is dumpstered.
