There are 7 users using the DHS Hurricane 8 Hard.
Hurricane 8 is specially designed to compensate the spin and speed loss of the 40+ plastic ball. The sponge of the Hurricane 8 is a hard high-density Chinese style sponge, but it is a new type with 15% more elasticity. The top sheet of the Hurricane 8 has more stickiness than Hurricane 2 Neo and Hurricane 3 Neo rubbers.

When I removed the protective sheet from its packaging its bounce 2 - 3 times on the rubber but after 15 its tackiness fade away and its speed increase and unleash its true nature, excelent for loop, drive, serve, push, counter, and block, chops not good. In short game is excelent because of its tackiness plays a big role, it keeps the ball low over the net. and excelent for looping from close to away from the table. I would rate this 9/10. very good choice for looper who prefer a chinese rubber.

Blade: Yasaka Dynamix 17 FH: Hurricane 8 Hard 2.2mm BH: Tibhar Evolution MX-P 2.1-2.2mm Before you buy this, be warned. Unless you are used to playing with Chinese rubbers, this rubber will feel dead or too hard for you. However if you are used to playing with harder chinese rubbers(ie. straight arm, brushing the ball), then this rubber should suit you alot more. Having been playing with the H3 Neo and the H3 Provincial, I can say that it is spinnier than the NEO and Provincial but only for a while. Speed is around the same as the commercial H3 Neo, couldn't feel a noticeable speed increase. It is the only rubber I've used in testing, that was able to hold the ball upside down for more than a few seconds, a testament to its extreme tackiness. H8 is definitely the TACKIEST, HEAVIEST, as well as the HARDEST rubber I've used thus far. Full body engagement needed to access the spin and speed of this rubber. However, a big problem, and I mean a BIG ONE, is the durability. The first few sessions, the spin on this rubber was incredible, probably the best I've used, but this drastically declined within a month. Unlike the H3 NEO which I've been using for almost a year now, it still has the punch/catapult effect after months of use. A big deal breaker, if you are like me and don't want to spend money to buy new rubbers after little over a month. IMO stick with the H3 NEO, unless you are willing to change rubbers frequently.

La mejor goma china que probe hasta el momento, si tienes una buena tecnica de drive, sos dios con esta goma. Muy recomendable y facil de adaptar. Algo negativo un poco pesada pero con una cuchilla liviana funciona, y tambien no dura mucho su pegajosidad

YouTubing around, I came across the idea of combining soft/flexy blade (for control, feel, dwell time, and spin) with hard rubbers (for more control) on both sides and applying pressure on opponents shot after shot after shot. I took this idea to the extreme: This is the flexiest/softest-rated frame that I could find on tabletennisdb.com, and I paired it with DHS Hurricane 8 Hard (~40 degrees) on both sides. I love the blade. The rubber is quite good too, and using it, I have been able to make leaps-and-bounds progress with my technique. Months later, when it is time to replace it, I would like to try a harder rubber.

I found the h8 medium was a bit slow so I get the hard and it seems a little faster but who knows. Had it for about 2 months and it still picks a ball up and holds it for an indefinite amount of time. So I rate it very tacky. I put it on a viscaria. Very nice blade imo and with a tacky rubber very controlled shots. I used mxp on FH before on a all+ and it is very nice but not enough power. Still use mxp on viscaria as bh and the racket speed seems to just reduce dwell. Comparing these rubbers on FH I would say they play very similar. So how fast is h8 hard? A little slower than mxp. How spinny? A little more on the short, a little less on the long. How sensitive? H8 Less sensitive by a lot. Throw on mxp much higher so obv a good flick rubber if spin is your backhand. Anyways, probably a good buy. I'm sticking with this setup as it feels balanced and I enjoy it more than my 13 other racket rubber combos
