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.

Used as a backhand rubber on c-pen Hurricane Hao II blade (can't imagine anyone using this on the forehand). The TinArc series appears to be DHS' early attempt at making a non-tacky, elastic euro-rubber that has since been replaced by the GoldArc line. It has decent speed, but not many gears--it's difficult to generate high amounts of speed while retaining accuracy. The spin is also decent, but generating heavy spin can be difficult. Other than that, the TinArc 5 is very stable and consistent, but the lack of gears makes it difficult to dictate the pace of a point. Also, this rubber tends to break easily. Not such a big deal when little pieces break off near the very edge, but could easily tear after just one or two run-ins with the edge of the table. A decent rubber, but I'd rather invest in a sheet of Tibhar MX-P.

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
