    + Description
    New technology keeps the consistency of performance longer, which makes blades less susceptible to temperature, air humidity and more effective in reducing performance degradation, thus to keep its elasticity and internal power. 301 BBT ( Blade Balancing Technology) technology is widely welcomed among Chinese T.T. professional players.

      5.00 most controlled attacking blade i have ever played with
      • lots of gears
      • good blocking
      • superb touch

      • handle design
      Been playing this blade with goldarc-8 (50 deg Max sponge FH, 50 deg med sponge BH) and it has turned out to be a lovely combination.
      As others have also reported, the blade has lots of gears which enables one to play a large variety of strokes comfortably, be it close to table or mid distance.
      the control is superb !! I am able to play backhand over the table flicks/topspins very comfortably without overshooting. The blocking is one of the best i have experienced, due to the outer koto layer. I can even punch block slightly high balls perfectly. The slower gears also help in drop shots (2 bounce) , which are very helpful against defenders. Forehand/backhand topspins/counter-topspins from close/med distance are very controlled.
      Throw angle is slightly medium, and dwell is also medium. So make sure your rubbers are grippy enough to lift the ball.
      The small issue i think with the handle design is that the flare is not so much, when compared to butterfly viscaria or stiga blades, but that could be a personal issue, based on my hand anatomy etc.

      You may try the goldarc-8 (47.5 deg max sponge) for BH. Should also be a good combination.
      Cheers !!

      5.00 Dhs Hurricane 301
      • arylatecarbon
      • big swetspot
      • mega control

      • unusual handle
      • medium fast
      • without a player
      An incredibly good board. Very low price. High quality. Speed in the OFF-/OFF range. Arylatecarbon for more players.
      If it was promoted by a player, it would be many times more expensive. We have developed a review with a friend from the first division:

      5.00 Blade with most Gears
      • Linearity
      • Gears

      • Can be too fast
      It is a blade made with the same philosophy as the Hurricane rubber after which it is named.

      The outer layer is hard (koto wood) which insulates the inner layers from impact so long as the impact is weak, meaning that touch play with this blade is exquisite, possibly the best of all my blades.
      The ALC weave comes only after the second wood ply, next to the wood core, so the high speed it can generate requires you to use power to activate it. It does not come immediately, thus giving a very linear grading of speeds which are very easy to access and control.
      So all in all it's like a hurricane rubber. Great for very soft touches and very speedy when YOU give it power, thus it is a blade for more advanced players in good health.

      I think it is a brilliant cross of a viscaria and an innerforce, given the koto outer layer and the placement of the carbon layer, which gives it the best linearity and gears of any blade I've tried.

      The only problem I find is that after the carbon is truly activated, it can be... well, it can get too fast. For me at least. It is also a bit harder to attack backspin balls reliably with this blade compared to others, since you have to generate all of the power there and therefore can be too prone to mistake.
      The throw of this blade is low (again in keeping with the hurricane rubber theme), which makes topspins very sharp, direct and deadly fast, but not so safe. This is especially noticeable with backhand, which requires very good technique for safety. So in effect the great strengths of this blade also make for weaknesses, which is why it is not a blade for a beginner.

      5.00 My thoughts on the H301
      Hurricane_boss's Avatar Hurricane_boss Reviews(1)
      • all wood feel
      • great speed
      • price

      • durability
      Before I start, this is my first time doing a review so I'm not very good. When I tested this blade I was using H3P blue sponge in 39 degrees and 2.2 mm thick on forehand and Rozena in 1.9mm thickness on backhand. Also I am a Cpen player. And finally, I do not have the weight of my blade sorry.

      So, after 1-2 hours of testing, I found this as an truly amazing blade. First of all, this is a very affordable blade and great for its price. Secondly,there was no difficulties at all switching from an all wood blade to this. That is because of its structure, It has the same construction as a Long5 blade except for the fact that the ALC layer is thinner and the top ply is koto instead of limba. So on soft shots it has the great feeling of a wood blade with a little less dwell time and on medium/hard shots, has the crisp feeling of Carbon. None of my shots went out of the table because of this switch. The sweetspot by the way, is pretty big kind of like the carbonado 190 but overall a little smaller.

      This blade is stiff but not so much as to other ALC blades. On topspins I barely found any difference between this and my old blade( however, part of that is maybe due to the fact that I haven't had that much experience with equipment). On topspin against backspin, it was really smooth and I had no difficulties doing it. When flicking, because you do not use as much power as your other shots, you are basically only flicking with the two outer wood layers and that actually helps a lot, because it gives more dwell time. Block was great and counter hitting is the best part. Because of the sheer speed of your blade combined with the power from your opponent, the return is very fast and still has quite some spin in it. On hard shots, you can feel the vibrations pass through just like a wood blade. It offers a lot of control along with spin and speed. This blade also has many gears unlike some other composite blades when the ball just shoots out immediately.

      SO, on with the negative part of this blade. When I opened the package, a part of the side of the blade has a crack in it. It doesn't affect the game much but just looks bad. And later when I was walking to get some water I accidentally banged it on a chair and a bit of the blade chipped off. This blade definitely is not that durable but we kind of have to forgive DHS for that because of the price. If you do not want this to happen you can actually purchase a national version of this blade and from what I've heard the quality just skyrockets and the performance improves too. I personally suggest this blade to someone who is still improving their techniques and was using an all wood blade.
