If you are selling a used rubber that you have boosted at any point in time, it is unethical to not disclose this fact in advance to potential buyers.

It would also be helpful if you indicate the size or type of blade rubbers were cut to fit.

some booster can be proved if you are an advance...
mostly it can't be....
but, time will reveal the truth...
the boosted rubbers's durability is lower than not boosted....

actually.... selling used rubbers is about trust
not only about boosting, but also about how long it has been used or opened

You can see it by the sponge being a little thicker then usual. Also the smell gives it away I think.

Of course some rubbers are factory boosted so smell that way naturally.

True. But that smell is not like the Dianchii oil or similair chineese boosters. They smell completely different then factory boost.

boosted rubber will always curve upwards when lay flat on the sponge side due to a sponge been expanded during boosting process. Speed glue also do the same to the rubber.
