Has anyone tried the Nittaku Hurricane 3 neo? I'm trying to find an alternative to 37 degree h3 provincial for backhand and came across the Nittaku Hurricane 3 neo rubber. I've heard it's similar to provincial H3 neo but can someone compare the two? Also, what is the hardness of this rubber and can it act as a 37 deg h3 prov? Thanks

Isn't the turbo version softer than regular nittaku h3 version?

This one? https://www.nittaku.com/products/rubbers/post-20
Sponge hardness 42.5°. If Nittaku always uses the same conversion that they use for the their FastArc G-1 37.5° = 47.5° ESN than this rubber has around 52.5° ESN or 40° DHS (conversion/FastArc G-1: https://www.nittaku.com/products/rubbers/post-3)

Finding an alternative for a H3(N) regardless of sponge hardness seems like finding an unicorn and a pot full of gold at the end of a rainbow ;)

Edit: H3 Pro Orange has a 45° = 55° ESN hard sponge and the Pro Blue 50° = 60° ESN according to https://www.nittaku.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/09/aace22023762f51399f1a5fb723ac6de.pdf

Battle 2 i guess with 38 degrees hardness or Kokutaku 007 Pro 38 degrees.

Possibly the new Battle Max Pro 38° if one can trust Google Translate "Specially developed for the era of the big ball, the rubber surface is sticky and durable" http://www.729sports.com/cn/h-pd-772.html#_jcp=3_1
The commercial Battle 2 could also be an option (45°, 47° and 49° ESN)

I thought turbo was harder at 45 degrees which is why I didn't consider it. Nittaku has so many different versions, I don't even know what the differences are.

Yes its that version. thanks for the website, I can't believe I didn't think to go check the offical site for the hardness.

What's interesting is on other forums, some people say that Nittaku H3 neo feels like 37.5 degree dhs scale and some say it feels only a little softer than 39 deg h3 neo provincial which is why I wanted to get more opinions from people who have used it/heard of it.
