TinArc 5 combines both great feeling with powerful elastic shots. TinArc 5 rubber allows the ball to absorb and penetrate easily, ideal for feel with quick loops, ball handling near the net, or off-court play. The outstanding elastic rubber and thick pimple design, which have a quick rebound on ball striking, enables strong power with minimal effort. The new sponge also uses MACRO-CELL & High-Elasticity Particle Osmosis technology, providing powerful attack. TinArc 5, specially designed to enhance the speed of 40+ celluloid-free T.T. balls, is suitable for continuous quick loop with quick attack drive Sponge Hardness: 33

I'm currently using this rubber on my backhand (blade: hurricane king 3, fh: h3neo) and so far, it exceeded my expectations on dhs rubbers. Compared to my previous bh rubber (tenergy80fx), it has less speed and power but gives you better ball control with lots of spin. Good for loop, drive and block. Performs well on 40+ ball and gives you an awesome feel on each stroke. Chinese style top sheet with a european spring sponge feel, definitely my new favorite bh rubber.

Tin Arc 5 is the good rubber for my forehand. The speed of this rubber is good,and the spin is also well.The throw angle of it is medium, and I feel the weight of it is heavy. It is suitable for playing 40+mm balls.

Blade: DHS PG-7 FH: Genesis M BH: Tin Arc 5 Do not be misled by the ratings on other reviews, this is by no means a speed or spin monster. It has average speed and above average spin. The control on this rubber is incredible however, perhaps due to the soft sponge. Another misleading rating is the sponge hardness, Tin Arc 5 is NOT a hard rubber. This is a very soft porous sponge, not characteristic of Chinese rubbers, it has a pale white sponge, compared to traditional orange DHS rubbers; I'd say sponge hardness is about 35-36 degrees. This rubber I felt was very suited for backhand, the soft sponge, paired with the softer top layer of the PG-7 meant returns were sufficiently absorbed, keeping control at a high. However, this rubber is a little too slow for my liking on the backhand, especially for opening up against backspin. Because it is quite soft, and not a tensor rubber like Tenergy, the service return is quite spinny, but lacks the speed factor to take the initiative in the rally. Overall, a decent beginner rubber for the backhand(best suited), average spin and speed, but excellent control.

Overall good. A little slow but not very, I played it on a slow blade too. Be careful to hit the table etc, it breaks easy

I play this rubber on a def+ blade, the Yasaka Sweden Defensive. Yet it's still capable of producing amazing speed and spin with no effort at all. Very different than NEO rubbers I have played with. To me it's very much a tensor rubber. Reminds me of a soft version of the Adidas P7. However, due to the rubber's softness it sometimes performs a little inconsistent and loses power away from the table. Could be because of the blade too, it's quite flexy and soft. Great rubber for me though. Update: I fell in love with this rubber more and more and ordered a second sheet in the 35 degree hardness for on my Yasaka Goiabao. On this blade it performs even better, as the harder blade dramatically improves its consistency and my ability to place the ball wherever I want it to go.
