      DHS Neo rubbers vs normal boosted

      Hello guys what are your opinions on neo rubbers and how long does the factory boost on them last and is it better to play normal version and just boost or buy neo and boost after one or two months and do the neo version even have to be re-boosted?

      I had them both. Neo it's a bit bouncy but not too much. I use a special booster, which is to be applied for both sponge & topsheet, I boosted it in February, it became faster and softer, but still very linear, the speed effect didn't last but still the rubber is still soft and bouncy now.

      the jury is still out but"" NEO is not actually boosted""" seems to be the majority decision expected.
      I got H3 on the forehand and Neo on the back and both are not boosted and they do not ware off

      If I would desire softer bouncier rubbers , I would simply buy softer bouncier rubbers

      Yeah true I guess I was mistaken because many people say neo is factor boosted and the boosted feeling wears out after some time and rubber becomes dead

      It's not bout bounciness or softness only. The feeling changes. Maybe I am oversensitive though. Boosted tacky rubbers feels different than most hybrids or "softer tacky rubbers" I've used in the past. If you want it, you can try Haifu Seamoon, its for 18$ on Aliexpress. Shipping takes a while because it can't be sent by air, but it's the cheapest way to try boosting. BTW I've found that Battle 2 prov is a good substitute for Hurricane 3 prov grade. It plays very well.

      All I know is that Neo smells really bad at first and then smell wears off after about three weeks. No idea if the rotten smell is from booster or something else.

      Also:
      Yinhe Jupiter II smells even worse than Neo. Probably wins the award for “worst smelling rubber”. The smell also wears off, but after a longer period.

      I always boost either neo or non-neo h3. A Chinese cosch friend of mine told me to use non neo h3 if i boost a lot and do not join ittdlf sanctioned tournaments as non-neo h3 absorb boosters better.

      All the chinese rubbers, even those non-tacky, have a strong smell. I have a friend who says that if they don't stink they might be fake or they are not good

      Corbor is the biggest culprit here. It smells worst, forever. Right now I have like 2-4 sheets of Battle 2, they also all smell bad. The Gold Version smells worse tho.

      The non-neo H3, especially pro one, smells a lot less. (“Less”, I have to emphasize )

      Guys there is a video of a pro guy his youtube channel is tomorrow table tennis and he has guide to boosting rubbers and says neo rubbers are factory boosted and have around one month play time until booster wears off and you shouldn’t boost neo rubbers right off the package so that means neo rubbers are actually boosted and not factory tensor or softer if what he is saying is true I am wondering if that is right

      Tbh I don’t even know why this sort of conversation keeps going on everywhere online Get a piece and have a try. You’ll know it instantly since a boosted H3 is completely different from an unboosted one, unlike tension rubbers (which boosting only enhances).

      Yes neo h3 is factory boosted but it is not enough.
