      Nittaku Hurricane Pro 3 Turbo Blue

      Has anyone tried this rubber? Whats the difference from a DHS Hurricane 3?

      How did it perform on different types of blade? All-wood, Inner carbon and Outer carbon?

      As compared to other rubbers like Tenergy, MXP, Omega, how did it perform?

      Thanks for all inputs.

      At 43 degrees hardness (DHS scale) this has to be one of the hardest rubbers on the market. No pro player I know of use a rubber this hard.

      I used to play DHS H3 for a numbers of years on all-wood blade. But switch to carbon blade due to the lack of power of the plastic balls.

      However, DHS H3 on a IF Layer ALC lacks power and my ball tends to hit the net when i block passively.
      I tried T05 but the throw angle and touch game is higher than a H3, which i didnt like. Although blocking with T05 is great.
      So i was wondering if Nittaku version of H3 would help with a Chinese top sheet and a Jap sponge.

      No it won't help in passive blocking, you still need to be more active in the block to get the ball to travel to the far lengths of the table. To be able to put your own energy on the ball/block is always a good idea to control the pace.

      43 hardness is not for amateurs. I wonder if it is made hard for boosting??

      Definitely boosting. Sure, one can break it in manually but that'll take weeks and the effect will still not be optimal. Ma Long and YA use 42 degrees, LGY 41.5 and FZD 41. Who needs 43?

      Lol spin rated at 9.8. Take revspin's rating with a giant grain of salt. Usually don't bother until there are maybe at least 30 ratings.

      This rubber is simply too hard for anyone on the forum to use. Also, it's a very heavy rubber as well. For most of us who are not pros, I recommend getting a 39 degree hardness H3 or H3N and apply 2-3 layers of boosters. This should perform much better than Nittaku's turbo offerings and should still come lighter.

      it has to be a different scale than DHS since its made by nittaku. i guess its the same as butterfly so it would be same hardness as tenergy 05 hard. whats that in ESN hardness? 50-52?

      The rubber is amazing. You don't need booster. It's like a h3 41 degree blue sponge boosted. But it's ridiculous heavy. 2,0 mm is 63 grams cut on a butterfly blade. You need a light blade with ca. 80 grams to use this rubber.

      Are you sure about that? Then it will be super head-heavy. I think a heavier blade would actually feel more balanced.

      You have to test it out for yourself. I for myself can not handle a setup over 190 grams.

      The grams are relative. I have 2 setups that both weight 182g. One of them feels noticeably heavier that the other one. I have another setup that is 179g. It feels way heavier than the previous 2.

      Of course the balance of the blade is a factor.

      Sounds interesting and you don't have to use it on both sides

      I received a response from TT11, they sent me a pic when measuring the sponge with a durometer, and it says 60. What does that correspond to? I can't upload the pic until I get home tonight.
