Hey,
I love my Hurricane 3 but it was a lot better when I first used it. My serves were super spinny, now it is way less although it's only 2 weeks old. I just put it in my bat case but now I read that for Chinese rubbers that's not enough.
What do you do to preserve its tackiness?

non-sticky plastic sheets applied after cleaning the rubber with a bit of sweat once you have finished playing works for me. if you want to store for a while apply a thin coat of olive oil after cleaning and then put on the plastic cover sheets. this also restores the rubber's tack & grip.

Okay thanks. Got any tip where to buy these? I only find sticky ones for Euro/Japanese rubbers. In Germany everyone plays Donic/Andro/Butterfly etc...

I used to use the adhesive Butterfly rubber protection sheets. I found they restored the tackiness of my old H3 which gave it much more life than it had any right to have, haha. Don't know if those impact the characteristics of the rubber in the long run though since many people do not use them or are against the idea.

I am using these adhesive ones: http://www.tabletennis11.com/other_eng/donic-protection-foil-formula-pair

I clean my rubber with tab water out of a tiny spray bottle between matches and after training sessions. Occasionally even the REvolution No3 cleaner to get the tiny particles off that won't come off with just water (you feel them while wiping with your palm). My H3N is currently 3 months old with absolutely zero loss in tackiness. It's as good as new. No need to not use sticky foils :)

But I read that for tacky rubbers you should use the ones that are not adhesive and vice versa?

Exactly. I was told the same. Adhesive sheets take away the tack bit by bit.

My take is that you need an adhesive one for a none sticky rubber (but not really, strictly speaking), while for a sticky rubber you don't need an adhesive one but can use both. But what do I know, I can only tell you that what I do works just fine :)

Clean after every use.
Just before you apply a non-adhesive sheet to your hurricane, put a drop of water on it. Put on the protective sheet so that the water gets evenly spread on the rubber.

The water will keep oxygen out therefore keeps the rubber tacky.

I was wondering, for non sticky rubbers, why would adhesive sheets be 'better'? Is it because they might stick better to the rubber? I am using some transparent, non sticky sheets, which I cut to the right size and they already do their job for over 6 months.

I've used this before. It has a very strong chemical smell.
It does a nice job cleaning up and renewing tackiness to Chinese rubbers but
I'm not so sure that it doesn't degrade the top sheet.

Perhaps I should have been more clear. I used adhesive sheets when my rubber was nearing the end of its life I.e. a bit of grip but no tackiness at all and the film would restore it. I haven't tried to treat an 'alive' sheet though. I just put my bat in it's case and clean it with natural moisture every so often.

I use DHS Hurricane 3 neo provincial (black) and after one day it has zero tackiness :verwirrt: . I claen my rubber with water and use a protection foil (no tacky) too the humidity is 40°. What is wrong???

I made Olivenöil on the rubber now it is tacky:)

What do you do to preserve its tackiness?
First day when I use hurricane 38 -40 degree provincial orange sponge . At first he lifted the ball after I clean with revolution nr3 cleaner and after I put a protective film with adhesive . After 2 hours I go training and I I'll try it , ZERO same like tenergy 😭 . Now I try to put some olive oil I hope it helps 😊
