    4.00 A Tacky and Higher Throwing Rubber With Considerable Backhand Potential
    FH drives are controlled but they are slower than with the TG3 Neo. FH loops against backspin are easier to execute and have more clearance over the net than with the TG3 rubbers because the softer sponge results in a slightly increased throw angle. However, this, along with the 3-60’s low inherent speed, means that the trajectory is less dangerous. As expected, hard FH brush loops, loop-drives, and counter-topspins result in a flatter trajectory but seem to be less spinny than with the TG3 rubbers. Consequently, they have less kick and penetrating power. I found the Skyline 3-60 to be better suited for BH loops and banana flicks, where the tacky topsheet and softer sponge work well together to lift and spin the ball with a medium-high arc and plenty of safety over the net despite.

    4.00 Great BH Rubber
    • Soft
    • Fast(ish)
    • Comfortable
    • A bit too heavy
    • A bit too hard
    • A bit too slow
    An excellent backhand rubber, just not up to par with other backhand rubbers. I suppose it would be great for someone who has a personal preference for it.
    It's soft, but just a bit too hard. It's light, but not quite as light as, say, AK47 Blue. It's tacky, but not tacky enough to affect the 40+ Polyball significantly.
    If these things were changed just slightly it'd be an excellent rubber for BH as far as I'm concerned.

    Should be noted that this is probably DHS' fastest line of rubbers and the speed is definitely easy to feel over more effort-intensive forehand rubbers like the H3.
    It is instantly noticeable that it is a much faster and more direct rubber.

    A solid 8 I guess, but why buy a solid 8 when you can get a 9.5 I remain unsure.
    I guess it is a matter of personal taste at that point.

    4.00 Super control and spin, but requires effort.

    This rubber was an experiment due to my love of DHS tackies on my fh, and because XX uses a similar rubber for rpb. I'd learned rpb with focus 3 snipe, a completely non tacky rubber. Even boosted, this rubber is no where near as fast, but has a higher throw and much much greater spin. Just like tackies on my fh, you have many many gears and can easily create varying arcs and spins. The control and feeling is incredible and even at 37 degrees, boosted this rubber feels perfect for bh. The slower speed will allow me to develop strokes and blocking, moving me away from the TPB. Highly recommended. Cheap price too!

    5.00 37° recommended BH rubber
    • very controlable
    • spinny
    • feeling
    • effort
    • no harder
    • version
    I have only played it as a backhand rubber due to the fact that it is only available in 35 and 37 degree but on BH i can recommend it in combination with a composite blade. i have only played it on a carbonado 190 and like it very much.
    Very good for loopkilling serves that drifted too long and for mid distance play with playing style that puts effort in the shots but up to a certain point you only get what you put into it in terms of force. it is bouncier then a classic chinese rubber but not as near as bouncy as a tensor e.g. so you still need a good amount of effort but you can play that with safety because the rubber gives you a good control in every aspect and you don´t need much adjustments in terms of technique. you will quickly learn what is possible and how to execute the shots you wanna play.
    on a carbonado 190 i found the throw angle low on very fast shots, when you hit more with forward motion and high at lower speed e.g. at flicking over the table or at open ups on backspin near the table edge. i rate the possibility to create different throw angles at will as a high +.
    with 3 thin layers of falco long it is a deadly weapon in every aspects and still very controlable.
    Satisfying for the BH! Thumps up

    If this rubber would be available in 40° (DHS scale) - it isn`t, what is sad - i can imagine it as wonderful jap/china hybrid on the FH side.

    4.00 Decent fast rubber - Soft Version
    • Fast
    • Grip
    • tack
    • Noise
    • TopSheet Damages
    • low throw angle
    My review is for the Soft version of the rubber, 2.1mm in Black (without any booster oil). The package of the Mid Soft and Soft version are the same, you need to check the back of the package above the barcode to read the version.

    Blade Used: Tibhar Triple Carbon (Stiff, heavy over 90gr, OFF++)


    I use this rubber on FH mostly, I try not to use it on BH away from the table because the throw angle is low and pushes goes to the net, the same goes with passive blocks.

    from my point of view the sponge is softer than Sriver Fx, Airoc S and Tenergy 80FX. In terms of speed, only faster than Sriver FX.

    Out of the box the tackiness is strong, you need to practice a 3-4 days until the tackiness decreases and the rubber gets its normal playing characteristics.

    The serves are spinny but fast and long. The tackiness is great but the speed and low throw makes it unsuitable for chopping. Excels at looping at mid distance, when properly executed the topspins, sidespins in particular create a difficult ball for the opponent

    Flat strokes will create the loudest crack I've heard, but this rubber is meant to brush loop to take advantage of the soft sponge and tacky surface which is fragile. You need to have extra care for the topsheet, since it collects a lot of dust and reacts weird with the environment and touch, so keep it clean.


    8/10



    PD: It seems to me that it becomes tackier at lower room temperatures, but I don't have the time or the will, to test this theory :D

    5.00 Recommended if you are moving from European rubbers
    Used it on the BH side on Tibhar Samsonov Force Pro.
    Makes a loud sound when you hit hard.
    Needs a little effort in blocking.
    Deep pushes are very spinny.
    When you connect the ball well, It goes like a rocket(very spinny and just fast enough to get you points)
    Best suited for tactical players who like to set up points and not for those who like to win points by finishing the ball as early as possible.

    4.00 Chinese rubber for next generation
    • Glue feel
    • BH soft
    • Lighter weight
    • No Harder choice
    Advertised as Mid Hard but indeed Mid Soft on the sticker. Have it on HH3 Cpen FH and works well enough. But I bet any Harder will suit FH more. Mid Soft or Soft is better left for BH unless you are long time soft rubber users which may be the main target group of this rubber.



    I have not weight the rubber alone but the whole sealed package. TG3-60 is 87g which is 10g less than H3-50. I also have H3-50 Soft on another HH3 RPB but TG3-60 is simply better in every way. The lighter weight alone is a big plus. I can't get the same feel, speed or control from H3-50 Soft even on BH. Only spin is comparable. I don't like the same red sponge TA3 either.



    Throw of TG3-60 is medium. Have to lift upward a bit to clear the net in times. TG3 Neo has higher throw in comparison. May help with booster to reach Big Dipper level. Durability is definitely a non-issue and better than BD. Sponge is lively but don't expect the same modern Euro/Jap bounce. Same Chinese rubber techniqe applies. Hope DHS will give us Harder version in the future.
