Hurricane 3-50 is a tacky rubber which produces a characteristic low arcing ball flight from middle distance. The underlying 50# sponge is produced with great sponge elasticity which enables and maximises a strong spin effect with use of the wrist. Hurricane 3-50 is the first choice for players who prefer to drive-loop and topspin. It integrates tacky rubber with elastic sponge. The sponge is receptive to ball contact while the rubber friction grips and holds the ball. Such a combination provides the player with great ball feeling with every shot and suits players who want to exert a fast, stable loop attack.

This is the H3 topsheet on a Tinarc sponge, which makes it an interesting combination. Comparing directly to a commercial H3N, H3-50: Feels very similar in service and short game (so, excellent then). Is slower on flat hits, loop drives. Is a touch slower when brush looping. Has more of a flexible, elastic feel when looping. The last point is important - when looping, and the sponge is engaged, H3-50 gives good speed and higher arc. This gives you a better window to use when looping than traditional H3-type rubbers, and the elastic nature of the setup means it can work well away from the table (if you put the effort in). If you have a game developed around the strengths of H3N (or similar), H3-50 might feel like a step back. It isn't as good for powerful play over the table - hard loop drive kill shots for example. But it does well in an allround playstyle, and feels a lot safer to me when in a loop-loop exchange. H3-50 might make more sense when coming from a eurojap perspective. It's like a medium speed eurojap rubber with a tacky topsheet. If you switched from eurojap to H3-50, you lose speed (and maybe blocking ease-of-use), but you gain service and short game control and spin. And rather than going for the full-on H3N experience, you get an easier time when looping. It won't feel like such a big change.

Yes Andy Smith did an excellent review. I wanted to change from Tenergy's ( several) on my BTY Viscaria to something more directionally stable for my BH. This rubber has good speed close/ mid from table and and provides excellent spin on serves. Pushes are loaded, loops severe, and short game good. This rubber performs best on fast blades as it may feel mushy on softer blades. Though it costs a bit more than some other DHS rubbers the price to performance ratio is excellent. Update. Outstanding on T.B Spirit blade for FH or BH. If you dislike the hard sponge on many Chinese rubbers you will love this version. More control, slightly less speed, and wicked topspin. Feels like it absorbs your opponents shots to allow you to generate your shot with precision. My absolute favorite Chinese rubber. Upgrade to 10

Use this rubber on FH if you can hit hard...loops will be amazing,balls kick up from the opponents side of the table.If you hit slow,rubber seems lifeless,as soon as effort is put,it is a looping monster.I have it o stiga infinity(VPS).

This rubber is definitely different from regular H3 or H3 Neo. The topsheet is the same as regular H3, but the sponge is much softer, which further enhances control and spin. I recently made the transition from 5-ply pure wood blade (Stiga Maple Wood V) to carbon blade (Nittaku Violin Carbon, this just came out, a very nice carbon blade). I've always used regular H3 as my forehand rubber. But I'm worried that I wouldn't be able to control a carbon blade as well, so I used this softer H3-50 for forehand instead. The combination is amazing. Short game is very spinny like regular H3 and the feeling is very clear and sharp. On topspin to topspin rallies, the speed and control is amazing. I cannot believe I'm using a stiffer carbon blade at all. I feel like my consistency on short game has improved with this rubber, while maintaining the same speed and spin as before. I definitely recommend this rubber for carbon blades, if regular Chinese rubbers are too hard.
