i guess there is definitely a difference btwn sticky and tacky...i love hurricane III (provincial) for its "stickiness, however it lacked the speed i wanted; i haven't tried the tuned yet, therefore from reading the reviews provided on this site, and because i have played with the 729 sensor 2, i decided to try the transcend. initially i was dissapointed because i believed i would have the same stickiness i rcvd from hurricane iii. now, one practice session later, i am pleased to inform the tt community and prospective buyers that this rubber is the $#@!. as the topsheet is beginning to wear i am noticing increased stickiness to go alond with the already present tackiness. in short, dare someone to loop against you. you have all the benefits of hurricane iii without the effort

This was my forehand rubber on my first professional-grade racket along with the Friendship/729 Cream Transcend. I found them very similar to be honest. So you can read my review on the Cream (just because I reviewed that one first LOL). I did fin just a little difference: the Friendship/729-3 Transcend was ever so slightly faster and lesser in control than the Friendship/729 Cream Transcend. Otherwise I found them more or less the same. This was one amazingly impressive rubber.

Review it!
