      Hurricane 3 neo provincial 39 Orange Sponge

      Hi,

      I have played with 40 degree hardness boosted blue sponge H3 provincial. Is 39 degree hardness boosted orange sponge going to be easier to play with it and will it require less power. Please let me know.

      Thanks.

      Yes probably easier to generate speed in the hands of a happy amateur. I the hands of FZD for instance he generates more speed with 40 degree than 39 since he can compress the sponge more and with a harder sponge his shorts will be harder. FZD would probably bottom out a 39 degree

      So the speed the difference between the two is only when we hit very hard right? So basically 39 is a more controlled, easy to use less powerful at high speed version right?

      I haven't used the orange sponge but a 39 degree national blue sponge, and the 41 degree I use now require a quicker swing to get the same speed. But I will never bottom out a 41 degree most probably

      On softer swings the softer 39 degree will offer a little more speed from the catapult effect.

      What I'm still considered about (even dedicated a thread to this subject) is, they say that the harder sponge, the less speed it has. I tried H3 Neo commercial 39° and I tried Yinhe Big Dipper of unknown hardness (was quite hard, probably 40 (max hardness of it). Now, I didn't like the H3 — for me, it was too bouncy. I'm not a lazy player and I'm used to hit hard. And the ball frequently was flying either away from the table or into the net. Was too sensitive to incoming speed.
      When I played with the Big Dipper, I liked it way more and felt more control. So for me, it wasn't easier to play with a softer rubber.
      Have a nice day bruh. =)

      So whilst neither rubber are designed for this, if we got a high ball and want to drive a winner, presumably 40 degrees is better for this?
      I mean once we get the pop up ball we should not be re looping it?

      On the same shot fh controlled loop, would the 39 or 40 give more clearance over the net? More arc if you like?
