Right now I use this TA3 on my backhand. H 35, 2.0mm and black. I'm coming from using DHS Hurricane 8, H 39, 2.15mm, black. These rubbers are very different. The TA3 is much less spin sensitive, so it's a lot easier to return high spin serves and brush loops. It's very soft, so it's quite slow compared to the H8 (even if the H8 is a bit slow as well). TA3 doesn't "go" by itself. You'll have to work it good and make the full strokes to get the most out of it, otherwise the ball often goes in the net. Perhaps this is mainly the H 35 sponge being to slow and not so forgiving. On the other side, it's easy to block loops and place them well, and the pushing and short game is much easier to handle. Now I've only played about 10 hours with my new setup, and if I have another feel in the future, I will change my review. Blade: Friendship 729 L3 FL FH: DHS Skyline TG2 NEO, H 39, 2.15mm BH: DHS TinArc 3, H 35, 2.0mm Update: Now I have tried the TA3 2.1mm H37 Red on my 729 V-6 blade. I't gives me a better feeling in my backhand. You don't have to put so much effort in your strikes to get the ball over the net. When I put it on forehand and test some brush loops, the feeling is good, but the ball always comes back. The spin and catapult effect isn't anything like Skyline/Hurricane NEO rubbers, so I will keep it on my backhand. Weight cut 2.1mm H37: 48-51g. 2.0mm H35: 46g

The rubber has a mid long dwell time, that makes a lot of spin and control, even using a stiff blade, therefore, this rubber fits more a looping playing style.

This rubber is a reasonably fast rubber, (for me as an offensive double player), i.e., to an extend a bit similar to Yasaka Pryde. It does enhance my long and fast no spin service and forehand top spin as well as your forehand back spin. Really good for push and not so well for hard push (returning left and right spins). I am happy with the overall performance of this rubber given the fact that the price is pretty reasonable (in comparison to Yasaka Pryde). The only problem that I have experience with this racket thus far is the fact it can't flick that well. Obviously, the rubber is not for the defender!

One of the best rubber I've used so far. "Digs" are good. Throw angle is quite low, I was impressed on how this rubber turned out on my Donic Impulse Blade. This rubber is good for my forehand (aggressive 3rd ball attack). Service is OK also, gives a lot of spin specially on reverse tomahawks, pendulum serves, etc. The price is also a good deal. all in all 8.5/10
