    Dhs hurricane 3 Orange vs blue sponge

    Hi,

    What are the differences between hurricane 3 orange vs blue sponge? I heard that blue sponge is harder and requires more power and orange sponge is easier to play with.Would love to hear your views.

    Thanks.

    you heard wrong , you have hardness gradation for hurricane rubbers so hardness depends on what you buy

    both rubbers need to be tuned and for getting the best from chinese type rubbers you need to change your technique
    many people when they try chinese style rubbers say they are slow, but point is that they are not slow when your technique is suited for those rubbers

    go to youtube and try to watch some videos

    you get different types of orange sponges too
    together with blue sponge, you have the hardness level and quality level (commercial/prov/national etc)

    different sponge version and hardness version is dependent on style and requirement.
    there is no easier or difficult, only correctly suited or not.

    From what I have read on Chinese forum and on Prott, blue sponge is slightly denser than orange sponge at the same hardness. I.e. a 39degree blue sponge is slightly harder and has more power reservoir than a 39degree orange sponge.

    Why do most top Chinese players in the USA play with Provincial orange sponge instead of blue?Does that mean Provincial orange sponge is good enough?

    Finding the original one is preety tough and even if you find an original one, it's freakin' expensive.

    That is correct.

    So that is why I said, its all depending on the players requirement.
    some would want more dense, some would want more soft, some would want more hard.

    Its easy to find, if you are from a former provincial team, it is super easy to get.
    Maybe supply at times might be difficult, but I recall someone I know got in 20 pieces at the time and sells them in the US

    so yeah, you need to be connected to be certain of supply.
    some European pros even contact me to sell them my personal stock I got for myself

    To answer "is it good enough", yes it is.
    Rubbers are only so much in your game.

    but then again, the orange sponge has different version. It may look orange, but it won't be the same type of sponge in a traditional commercial

    For example will a 40 degree hardness orange sponge going to be softer and easier to loop for an intermediate player than a 40 degree hardness blue sponge?

    Overall easier for sure. But "intermediate" has lots of room for interpretation. For myself an orange sponge is sufficient for me. I am an intermediate player.

    Go to Prott.vip. i have been buying from him for years. All authentic products.

    A piece of Neo H3 provincial orange sponge costs $30USD. Shipping usually$5.

    If you live in Europe and wants faster delivery go to TT11, an official distributor of DHS products. But it costs $46USD instead.

    A piece of provincial H3 can last a long time. Good value for money.
