"Hurricane III" was designed for the players who mainly adopt control method or have relatively weak attack power when playing 40mm ball. The rubber can reduce a feeling of ponderousness when you strengthen power and create a long arc, which benefits the ball control and exerts fast attack and loop drive at near table.

I love this rubber. After playing with Hurricane 3 for almost a year, I'm very used to forehand looping with it. But this rubber is by no means perfect; it has its limitations and drawbacks. With that said, I'm seeing some misconceptions about this rubber based on the reviews many people leave. I just want to clarify them for people who might consider trying out H3. Many first time users tend to complain about this rubber being slow, but that is not true. This rubber has many gears. Don't let the tackiness deceive you. If you use full-body swings, you will discover this rubber's high gear. Your loops will be fast and loaded with topspin. I promise your loops will be on par with tensor rubbers, if you use correct technique. Second misconception is the durability of this rubber. It's true that H3 is not a durable rubber by any standards. At most, I would rate it as having medium durability. However, the tackiness does not fade away as quickly as many people suggest. You have to take proper care of the rubber for the tackiness to stay. Clean with a bit of water (occasionally use rubber cleaning fluid, any brand will do. I use Tibhar VOC free rubber cleaning fluid) and sponge after each play session will allow you to keep the tackiness for the entire lifespan of the rubber topsheet. If you are a recreational player like me (3 to 4 play sessions per week, about 3 hours per session), a typical sheet of H3 should last you 4 to 5 months on forehand. If you use H3 on your backhand, it should last even longer. Finally, this rubber is not forgiving on mistakes, because it has hard topsheet and a low throw angle. So don't expect to be able to pick it up and be used to it right away, if you are not familiar with tacky Chinese rubbers. It will take a month or two for first-time users to get used to. I hope this review will be of some help to anyone using H3 or considering trying H3. Happy playing!

There are many reviews about hurricane 3 series - it is tacky and has a hard sponge/topsheet. Because of these properties, the general consensus is that it is too slow at higher levels of play unless boosted. My review will mostly be comparing boosted H3 provincial (3 layers falco tempo long) with Tenergy 05 on forehand. Both my boosted H3 and T05 are glued on 5 ply wood blades for forehand. For loop, T05 is still faster and much bouncier with higher throw angle. However, I think H3 has more spin + speed when played with faster stroke (T05 may go off the table with same stroke). Both are played with different strokes, T05 is more direct and will do a lot of the work for you, but H3 needs more brush because the ball does not bounce as much off the harder, tacky top sheet. H3 needs faster arm speed otherwise you sacrifice too much speed for spin. The topsheet is also very susceptible to oil and humidity, so be careful, or the ball will just slide off your paddle. T05 and H3 both have good touch, but it is much easier to do short and low serve/receive on H3. H3 can maybe get a little bit more spin on serve, but it is also much more sensitive to spin on receive. I think H3 has more potential in serve and receive if used well. Overall, I think this rubber is still more spin oriented than speed even after boosting. Both T05 and H3 are monstrous forehand looping rubbers. If you are strong and like to swing big on the forehand with good technique, you should consider this rubber. Modern tensor rubbers are also very nice to play on - different stroke but equally effective - I recommend players try both types for understanding. I think H3 is also a lot more dependent on the blade than tenergy. H3 needs something just not so stiff otherwise everything is too hard and you lose feeling.

I love this FH rubber as this allows me to loop and loop kill.Its tacky( sticky) so its great for learning to loop. Its linear and low throw angle and good for looping. After starting initially using Medium hardness for 9 months or so, I decided to upgrade to Hard hardness . Testing for 1 session proves its more power to my loops. BH and FH :all use hurrican3 rubber Blade : butterfly hinoki Jonyer 5ply Whatever blade I try I put on DHS3 on FH and BH. I had tried : Stiga CLipper, Yinhe V14 pro, Andro Timber 7 OFF/S This is the way to trial and error the best blade given the same rubber

I have used this rubber for forehand for about a year, and yes-it's tackiness has been worn out a little but not extremely significant. I am a looper and this rubber is perfect. it gives amazing speed in mid distance and is great for all levels of players. It is also pretty hard so you shouldn't really use it forr backhand. It doesn't have as long dwell time than european rubbers but it is good on a flexy/allround blade

I was blown away how light the rubber is, weighing only 43 gram when cut to my 157x150 mm test blade. I have heard and read everywhere that the Hurricane 3 rubbers are supposed to be so heavy. Not the case! In fact, I have only tested two inverted rubbers that weigh less than the regular Hurricane 3, namely the drastically softer Gewo Proton Neo 325 and 375! The response on FH drives is surprisingly non-metallic for an unboosted Chinese rubber. FH loops felt far less “Chinese” than I expected. Sure, the throw angle is medium at best and loops are best played with considerable wrist action and a big swing. However, engagement of the wrist also results in a unique arc, in which the ball dips shortly behind the net, resulting in a distracting kick off the bounce.
