Really liked this rubber on my Yasaka Goiabao. Excellent short game and opens up on backspin with little effort. Additionally it has more than enough speed to finish the point and a dangerously low arc. Reminds me of a TG3N but much easier to play. With it being a lot slower than modern tensor rubbers, you can easily unleash your power without missing the table. The downside is that you have to learn that the rubber does nothing for you by itself. You have to put a bit more effort in your shots.

This rubber has a medium-hard orange sponge and a slightly tacky topsheet. The topsheet is very durable, mine has one small rip after over a year of use. It has lost its tackiness but still performs excellently on most shots. I reglued it a few months ago and it shrunk by a millimetre or so overall, but hardly enough to notice. I used this on a 5-ply all wood blade (DHS A6002 pre-made bat). This rubber feels dead in the short game, but once you start hitting the ball it springs the ball out at a decent-ish pace. However, it is not too fast to chop with it; it has the low gears but is missing some of the higher ones. This rubber develops a higher throw angle if you hit hard, which took me by surprise in bh flicks when I really went for them. This helped to give me the impression that this is not a very precise rubber (for a non tensor). Spin is there as always if you work for it, but it does not have lots of easily accessible spin like most tensor type rubbers do. Enjoy your TT!

Hi All! Since there were no full reviews here I post one. DHS TinArc is a mix or Euro and Chinese feel, closer to the latter. I recommend boosting it a little. So in terms of speed the boosted version is bit faster and springier, than the unboosted and both has a wide dynamic range. It can feel dead when hitting with little force, but it comes live when you hit with medium to full power. Throw angle is the same, quite low on slow loop storkes, which opens up to a medium high/high throw when using the correct technique. I had no problem with it after MX-P. I would say this sheet is a tempo slower then MX-P on full power, but three tempo slowen when playing passively. It feels more chinese then MX-P, in terms of topsheet contact. I tried it on a Butter ZJK ALC (2012, blue dragon) and a Yinhe Venus 14, both OFF- looping blades. I would say speed is near the Bluefire M2, but way more stable when counterlooping, and it does not bottom out. To be honest the rubber can be fast because of the sponge, but it only represents your technique and power without tensor or catapult effect. Some say to this, that this rubber is dead... no it is only different. I would recommend this rubber to an ALL/OFF- player as a DO IT ALL rubber. Easy to drop, to smash, to counterspin, to first spin. Can be used to chop, over the table underspin game. The spin is totally OK, when brush looping or when doing the european loop (just need to open the angle and squeeze the ball a bit more) and the result will be a killer finising loop. To place this rubber in the whole picture, it is a CHINESE LIGHT rubber, if an euro player want's to try some cheaper chinese stuff go for this. If I compare it to chinese rubbers this one is a quality product, a bit more lively then the others. Weight is 62g in max square, around 50g on a 159*150 butterfly head shape. Stickyness: I can throw the ball up to 50 cm with it, ( BF M2 lifts 20 cm) so it is similar to MX-S or BF JP series.

This rubber came with my first shakehand paddle DHS A6002 along with Hurrican 3. Compare to the H3 it is slower, not spinny, hard & ungainly; feels kind of dead. I took off the rubber today and it weighs 58.6g (cut) which is quite heavy! Update: I switched the rubber to the blade Galaxy T-11+ and the feel improves significantly and more lively. I guess it plays better on OFF/OFF+ carbon blade than all wood blade. Also more suitable for a light weight blade like T-11+, otherwise your racket may be to heavy. Changed the overall rating from 7 to 7.8.

i think the stats are too low this is a great forehand rubber i can play short and long games FH Flicks are easier serves are spinny hmmm blocks are a little bit disappointing, you still need to push your blocks even if the ball is loaded wid topspin

Review it!
