Comments: i have
gotten a national team version of this rubber and its great! All of you who say
this rubber is slow and has bad spin must be retarted....you must realise that
you have to change your looping technique to accomodate this rubber...and take a
bigger backswing and follow through much more forwards and not upwards like with
jap rubbers, more physical strength is also needed, but once you adjust its
amazing...i first bought a commercial version to test and it was very hard
sponge, so i had to glue it 3 or 4 times to soften it up...and then it plays
marvelously...control is unrivalled and likewise with spin... its really the
best weapon because you can really spin the ball up near the table...the
national version has a great sponge and it is actually consistent and the
hardness is what they say it is...unlike the commercial version
control and the speed not bad as well... I did use it on my BH and FH as well.
Comments: I use
this right now with 2.0mm sponge black on Bty Chinese Real Forehand. It's
extremely sticky (a bit too much at first), and thus spinny, but retains a very
precise feeling of control. I don't speed-glue and also the Chinese Real is a
harder racket, so the 2.0mm rubber has a bit of trouble looping compared to when
I used Sriver or even Tackifire Special. However, it's still very possible, it
just take a more horizontal stroke. All and all, a very good combination and
certainly good enough for training or competition purposes.
started using this on forehand, but it'd also do on the backhand... great
control, great spin, and sufficient speed to kill as long as you yourself can
generate the power. this was UNGLUED, so i can only imagine gluing it would be
even better. make sure its nice and sticky when you play with it (avoid getting
it dusty) because without its tackiness, its no good for looping.
rubber for looping with a soft wood blade. Do not try to play with this and a
carbon blade because its just too hard unless you glue 5 or so times. produces
awesome pure spin loops. Inconsistent sponge unless you buy the national team
Amazing spin for serves and topspins, good for straight blocks. But little
control for pushing. Its sponge is not springy as softer japanese sponges. You
have to generate most of speed with your arm/wrist.
rubber is really hard to loop with it is very slow comparing to japanese
rubbers....it is ok for BH...but the rubber is still alittle too hard..
is a very nice rubber, the sponge is hard to offset the tackiness of the
topsheet. It's better for hitting rather than looping in my opinion. You can
soften up the sponge by speed glueing it a few times to suit your style. The
lifespan of this rubber is approximately 4-6 months.
all the players in the chinese national team use this rubber. How do yuo get a
national team version. Also if anyone knows anywhere you can go to find what
pros use could you tell me in the next review of this. This rubber is great.
you know there are 3 versions of HIII by Dhs: 1. Chinese National Team ( V.
rare) 2. Chinese Provincal Team ( pretty common) 3. Commercial ( most common)
Comments: I got
this sheet in 2 mm and it is almost imposible to loop with it is also very heavy
good slow with litte spin
Marginally softer than Hurricane 2, therefore slightly slower. Otherwise it is
essentially juz as gd as H2. very spinny and fast plus control. but lose out to
jap rubbers because its not as springy as jap rubbers. hence u'll need to apply
more hand power to make ur shots kill.
Excellent rubber. Very stick and great for looping. Highly recommended for

think this rubber is an excellent choice for penhold forehand and shakehand
backhand. I feel it is a bit too neutral in spin and speed to be a primary
looping rubber. However, it has excellent control and consistency for the
quick-attack and counter loops.
Comments: I have
try this rubber, but not good result, bad for top spin and hard sponge to slow
than yasaka or butterfly
is a good rubber from DHS with great spin and speed. The rubber is very tacky
which can help generate good spin. The control is definitely better than
Hurricane2. I have a Hurricane2 1.8 mm. and I am using the 2.2 mm version of
Hurricane 3 and it can loop very well. If you like doing loop style attack, you
should consider this rubber. I haven't tried this with speed glue. So no comment
is a good all around offensive. the speed is alrite and the spin is monsterous.
i got the dhs hurricane paddle with the hurricane 3 and g777 though not the best
combo its good for those who like doing wacky or major curves.
everyone probably knows this has an incredibly sticky topsheet and is good for
looping and blocking. I'll add that since using the Hurricane III my chop has
inproved quite dramatically. I definately would not change the Hurricane III
from my backhand no matter how inexpensive or lauded the rubber. At $13-$21 a
sheet, this rubber is a real steal. I've also heard that the Nittaku version of
this rubber is a little bit better quality. If you want to pay a couple of extra
bucks, it might be worth it. Who knows?
really like this rubber! it is my offensive rubber and i love the spin it
imparts and the way it allows me to control the ball. it is a very tacky rubber
which i enjoy.
Comments: It is
a very good rubber for short, spinny serves as well as powerful loop drives. It
has a very good feel for blocking, too--nice and hard.

rubber is extremely sticky so it is good for service and third ball attacks.
