This is the first DHS Rubber that is not a Chinese rubber. It's made in Germany and I can confirm it's an effective ESN rubber no tacky. For me is the best rubber I ever tried: 1) worderful serves with a huge amount of backspin 2) very easy open loops against backspin with a lot of rotation 3) strong countertopspin 4) strong pushes 5) fantastic blocks. What do you want more? The best rubber!!!

Comparing to t05. Test with robot with consistance ball speed and test with multiball training with human. Have use it for 1 month. I like this rubber on the lower gear, easy to use, better click sound. I like t05 on the high gear, better speed and spin. For certain level player its not easy to maximize t05 potential because u need to make hard stroke to get the high spin. Ga8 is more forgiving and easy to make the spin on slow stroke. So sometime u will feel t05 is better and sometime u will feel ga8 is better. Its depend on your level and play style. That all and i wish good luck to everyone.

This is a seriously great FH rubber: its in the same league as Tenergy and MX-P. In the recent past I've used primarily Tenergy 05 or Tibhar Evo MX-P and Yasaka Rakza 7 for a good time prior so I will use them as my primary comparisons. I think my best comparison would be to describe Gold Arc 8 as a slightly faster and spinnier version of Razka 7 with a slightly higher throw angle. Basically an upgraded Razka 7 for the 40+ ball. For T05/MX-P users it has more in common with MX-P being slightly slower with similar spin and a tad higher throw angle. It does everything well with no glaring weaknesses: Opening loops, counter loops, blocking, pushes, flat hits, serves, serve returns are all excellent.
Tenergy 05 is still a little stronger as an all out pure looping rubber and MX-P is faster but GA8 provides excellent spin and speed in an overall excellent and balanced rubber that is great for mid distanced looping attackers. If you are a pro or an aspiring pro T05 is still probably the best choice but for amateurs I think this is the better overall rubber. Recommended.

Gold Arc 8 is very fast rubber, this is a non-tacky chinese rubber with german porous sponge, topsheet is hard but elastic crispy catapult effect bite the ball, TOK TOK TOK sound so nice. like others top line tensor rubber are high speed, high spin. if Tenergy series are expensive ... you should not miss Gold Arc 8 it easy to play, it won't let you down.

47.5° is really good!! 50° is just amazing. Spin, speed, control, counter, block, loopvsloop, it has it all. Goodbye everything else. Pair it on a Viscaria!
