    Are there different versions of Hurricane 3 Neo?

    I have a Hurricane 3 Neo with orange sponge, it is very dead feeling, rather slow, kind of mushy. But today I borrowed somebodys Hurricane 3 Neo, which had a distinct pink sponge. It really played nothing like my H3, it didnt feel anywhere as dead or slow. He said he bought it on Amazon for $23. I almost think its a fake H3 but happens to have a bouncier sponge. Anybody have any idea what this could be?

    I talked with the Captain of Team Tsos, the Champion, today, he is more hyped up to talk about H3 than I ever saw him.

    Now if he would only sign up for TTD and buy some body armour...

    The H3 with a pink sponge is likely H3-50. The #50 sponge is softer and more lively.

    Most H3 needs a “break in” period. You just need to keep hitting it until the sponge is woken up. Or people like me put 3 layers of booster oil to the sponge and it played like a charm.

    H3 is a complex topic. I wrote a reply before comparing the major varieties.

    Does H3 50 has the same top sheet marking?

    Mine does have pink/red sponge.

    The top sheet is less tacky, at least that’s what I got.

    This is hurricane h8-80. I don't you think you will find any pinker sponge than this one.

    Stop horsing around and just use the blue sponge already. ( Just kidding 😁 )

    Just a story to share, I have a Nittaku H3 Turbo Blue Sponge and I let my club mate test it out. He is an above beginner level player, perhaps intermediate level, and he comes from Euro Tensor. The first thing he said was, WTF! This rubber feels like hitting a brick. It is so dead, he said. I can't spin with this dead rubber. I smiled.

    By the way how fast is the h3-50? The revspin speed rating is quite low, so does it have that typical dead feeling?

    It comes in 35 and 37 degree. Not that fast but enough for BH.
