    Hurricane 3 vs D05

    Hi All,
    Coming from Tenergy 05 and Dignics 09c, I've started enjoying playing with rubbers with lower throw - this gives me more security during counter loops and a bit more venom in my shots (given I put in adequate effort).
    I'm currently using Hurricane 3-50 (unboosted) both sides on Primorac Carbon, and whilst I like the control, it is a tad too slow. I don't want to get into boosting so looking for other options - what should I expect from Dignics 05? Would there be any particular drawbacks compared to the Hurricane?

    H3-50 is a backhand rubber. That's why you feel it's slow. It comes in 35 and 37 hardness. You need at least 39 hardness for a Hurricane rubber.

    D05 and H3 are two distinct beasts. The former givers a much longer but lower trajectory. D05 is infamous for its speed and decent spin.

    The H3 gives a much shorter but higher trajectory. Its fame comes from its extremely easy handle short game and monstrous spin in a rally.

    Why not get a commercial cheap H3 to try and see if you like it? Neo H3 needs no boosting. A $30 H3 can last you at least 6 months (if you play 6 hours a week)

    The slowness (from the tacky topsheet) (especially on balls struck with loose wrist) is especially pronounced... so WHY would any want it for this reason??? Well, there are players who use side/corkscrew spin control vs loaded topspin balls to give a return that is uber controlled and very slow and breaking away... I know of an elite amateur player who uses H3 for that very reason and utterly frustrates good amateur players that way.

    By any chance do you (or anyone) have a video of an example of this type of side/corkscrew shot against topspin you mention? I think I know what you mean but would like to see it to make sure I actually know what you're talking about 😅

    Hmm I disagree. It depends a lot on the sponge/booster etc.

    Blue sponge has a lower throw for sure than D05

    Go for Yinhe Big Dipper 38deg. That's a do-it-all Chinese rubber with a better bounce than H3-50.

    I agree strongly with this. Big Dipper is always advertised as a FH rubber so I always used it as a FH rubber. But recently I tested it as a BH rubber, and its also very powerful and penetrating.
