After comparing commercial DHS H3 neo's to Nat & Prov H3 rubbers on many different bats I've concluded that I prefer the softer sponge feel of the Nat and Prov H3 rubbers. A big question mark on whether those were real but after when DHS released the commercial H8 with medium sponge, I have been using this ever since. More tacky than H3 thus more spin, more gears, most gears on H8 have more speed than H3, and the feel of the H8 has much more control and predictability than H3. Highly recommended except for those who are used to using japanese/german/korean rubbers on FH.

I've been using a single black sheet of 2.15 Hurricane 8 on my forehand on and off for the past year, using it intensely and exclusively the last 4 months. I can say it's durability is amazing for a chinese rubber. Keep in mind that I play 3-4 times a week, 3 to 4 hours every session. It offers a medium-high throw, a medium-hard sponge that requires no boosting if you take the time to break it in, and just the right amount of tack. It should be noted that while I haven't tried any other sheet of H8, I've seen videos and reviews about it, and the tackiness seems to be pretty inconsistent throughout different sheets. Great on serves, and on short game, pushes and forehand flicks are easy with the help of the relative insesiveness to incoming spin when on low-gear, together with tackiness. With a bit of practice I found myself executing really deadly short forehand pushes with sharp placement. Opening loops are good but not great. Its tackiness helps picking up the ball for brush-loops on heavy backspin, but while I was able to loop, they weren't as loaded or dangerous as compared to euro/jap type tensor rubbers. Where this rubber truly shines is when loopdriving: Now, if you are used to chinese rubbers, and have a properly developed technique, you'll find how, once broken in, the H8 can produce incredibly fast shots, with decent/good spin (8-9/10), and a dangerously low arc. But be warned, such shots are not easy to achieve: while you can potentially loopdrive pretty much anything that goes just a tad long over the table, executing these shots needs proper footwork positioning, weight transfering, whip-like arm movement and speed, and also torsional speed from the chest. If you've got the physique, go ahead and get a sheet of H8. The one downfall is, besides not being good on passive play, that it feels like it can be a tad inconsistent at times with ball placement on power shots.

Very good rubber, use it with hayabusa zxi. Very fast with 2 layers of falcon tempo long booster. Very satisfied.

Super tacky. This is H3 but faster and more spin. Hard sponge

Tried it only 10 minutes. It was black, unboosted, on a hard carbon off blade. For sure h8 is more elastic than h3 and h3 neo, so the ball penetrates more easily the sponge and the shots are more linear than with the h3 neo. Throw angle is quite similar than the h3's one. The flat game is not his speciality, but better than h3. It works very well on loop with lot of spin. It's his best quality, loop and loopkill is wonderful. My friend was like " wah they are unblockable !". But don't forgive little errors of moves and placement. Serves and serve receives are of course unbelievable. I think I have found m'y rasant grip's substitute, over all a very good rubber ! EDIT : now i have my own, glued on a tg825-l blade (fast and flex), black and unboosted. Very good combination, flexibility cancel a bit the extrem hardness of the rubber. Great on loop, and loopkill, very fast and spinny. Excellent for short pushes xith a lot of underspin, and flick, because it's not very sensitive to the opponent spin. Excellent also on the counterloops, easy to do and fast. But bad on approximately all the flat game. And what about the serves ! So spinny ! Overall an amazing rubber, but beware, to use it well, you always have to be totally engaged in your strokes, you must be well placed, and have good a great feeling, to spin the ball correctly
