4 out of 5 rating for Hurricane 3 NEO

The DHS Hurricane 3 NEO is very spinny and lasts also very long. But it is not very fast and it's quite difficult to block because of the tackiness. With the DHS Hurricane 3 NEO you can make serves with a lot of spin, it's good for the short short and the flip becomes easier. During the topspin topspin play you have a lot control. Overall I would say that at the beginning it is a bit difficult to play the DHS Hurricane 3 NEO, but if you are habituated to it you can improve table tennis.

This Chinese rubber has good control and a lot of spin. The throwangle is medium/high. Its not that fast and pretty heavy as most Chinese rubbers. Really tacky! In comparison to the DHS Skyline 2 neo i found this rubber to be slower and the throw higher. Not as direct. Still, a great rubber.
I used it on a Stiga Hybrid wood blade.

I used the Hurricane 3 rubber a few years back and I feel it really helped developing my forehand technique. It does lack speed in comparison to some Tensor rubbers but it really does make you use all your body and arm/wrist to hit a good ball. The rubber has excellent control and you can grip the ball very well due to the tacky surface.

This rubber is great. It is alot different than Euro tensors. It has a very hard sponge, and topsheet. The topsheet is very tacky which gives you great spin and control of the ball. But it also makes your hits flat, and a bit slower. If you don't have good technique this rubber will show it. If you have great technique this rubber shows it and improves upon it. Not meant for people who are used to t-rexing for their loops and smashes. You need full arm and body motion to get the most out of this rubber. Also good for blocking and chopping. Such great ball control, you can place the ball anywhere with ease.

I would rate this rubber very highly because of the good amount of spin that it produces, It
is also generally good for service variation. The rubber is also very handy in control and you don't have to worry
about its durability. It is also very affordable. Its only minimal deficiency is blocking. Thank you DHS

i play with a hurr 3 neo national from tan ruiwu on my fh.
its so grippy that i can rotate the racket at least 5 times before it falls off.
easy to lift backspin,lots of rotation.
speed loops on backspin are insane when in position.
spinny serve as hell.
counterloops are deadly.
if you are lucky and get a good one like me,use it with care because with great power comes great responsibility!!
:D :D

btw i am not tuning it because it wouldnt last nearly as long

`This rubber is well worth the price, but isn't as durable as most rubbers especially non-tacky ones (although that's to be expected)
`The performance of this rubber is fairly dependent on your technique. To get the best out of it you need nearly flawless technique
`Famous (used by many players of the Chinese National Team)
`Great for control in serves and the short game, pushing with spin, serving with a lot of spin, etc.
`If you don't hit it just right, it may result in a "dead feel", generating very low speed. But if you do, you can get immense power

This rubber is so far the best suited rubber for my FH.
If you want to use it properly you have to use it on off+ or off++ blade . Do not even try it on def or all blade .(you will end with lots of balls in the net).
I really like the linear curve of speed with this rubber. If you hit softly it has a low bounce . But if you use your whole body ,then it just go fast (but not as fast as andro rasant series of rubbers ).....
This sponge of the rubber needs to get in playing condition ,so you have to play about 2-4 Hours to it get softer and more response .
The control is a little bit difficult without good technique.
The weight is medium ass all top rubbers from different brands .
Spin is just great .. especially for serves. you can hit it soft or hard there is always a great amount of spin .
I like the feel it gives me, when i`m using powerstrokes.... just perfect.
Overall i can only recommend this rubber .

A rubber with great control is the major positive of this rubber, which is also why the rubber is ideal for anyone wanting to improve on their strokes. This rubber is a bit slower than most though however, so if you are playing with a fast rubber such as Tenergy then switching to this may not feel very good.

After using this rubber model for 2 years for my forehand, I still greatly enjoy using it. It is very good for looping, as it can generate lots of spin. It also gives a very good control on the ball, however, the downside of that is a little lacking on the speed. The rubber also smells not very nice at the beginning, however, the smell goes away gradually. The rubber is also relatively cheap, which makes it a good choice.

Very good looping rubber and I'm really happy using it. I can loop all backspin easily. DHS H3 Neo is a very good rubber to produce a very consistent forehand topspin. It's tacky surface helps me in getting a better control. Recommended for advanced players who really seeking balance in speed and spin. But one of the downside of this rubber is it cannot generate the speed by itself. I need to produce the speed with of own body and it takes a lot of physical efforts to do that. I think this rubber is good for a topspin offensive player with strong physical capability. I don't recommend this rubber if you like to smash the ball flat because of its tacky surface, flat hitters will struggle to adjust their stroke.

After the Poly ball was introduced i felt my Adidas P7 forehand rubber was not adequate in creating spin. So i decided to try to find a spinnier rubber. Since many of my clubmates and my coach use DHS H3 neo, i thought why not give it a try. I have not used Chinese hard rubbers since i was a kid. On my first try without boosting, i felt the rubber was very unplayable. It had good spin and control but did not have the catapult effect of tensors. The rubber felt very slow. Then with further research and great information gathered from TTD posts/threads. I've decided to boost the H3 neo with Seamoon booster. Now this is when the rubber comes alive! Great spin, good catapult, good control and good arc. My serves were much spinnier when compared to the tensor i was previously using. My loops were diving and arcing more into the table due to the increased spin. I was very happy after boosting, the issue i have is that this rubber is not very durable. At most i can get 2 to 3 months of good playability before i need a new sheet because once you boost and tense the topsheet, the topsheet starts to degrade very fast. If you dont boost, i say you can get 3 to 6 months dependant on how you play. But i definitely prefer the boosted H3 neo. But when you compare H3 Neo price ($20 U.S. dollars per sheet) to say Butterfly Tenergy ($65 to $70 U.S. dollars per sheet) I can definitely can live with buying the cheaper H3 Neo and boosting it. My bottle of Seamoon booster definitely can last a couple of years of use from each bottle. Overall i am happy with H3 neo...Now if somebody can come out with a Hybrid rubber that is equally spinny, tacky and has a good catapult effect without boosting...But sadly the world does not work that way...lol

This rubber is great. It's a chinese rubber, which means that is suited players that use the full arm swing doing forehand topspin. Awesome spin.
The control is good but can be better. The speed of the rubber isn't very high, but boosting it is always an option.
The topsheet is very tacky and the sponge is super hard, which makes this rubber hard to play with for begginers.

Overall I would recommend this rubber.

Okay.. If you want to know how this rubber affects me, then read the post I made :p

But yeah, the hardest thing rating this rubber is the speed.. It's really fast if you hit hard and good, but if you don't put the effort in it's kinda slow. So it got many gears to play. It suits me well because of the "accuracy" in the rubber.. Or I guess it's me that's accurate but the rubber helps me in this regard. So, first impression: Good forehand rubber for me.

Let's say I'll get back to this if I remember or want to add something hehe :)

Just boost it.

This rubber is made to be boosted.
I applied 2 layers of booster and this rubber became a monster in terms of balance of spins and speed.
Highly recommended to boost this rubber!

The other good thing about this rubber is that it forces you to place your feet in a proper position otherwise your balls would be slow and not spinny.
Good for training, I would recommend this for beginners in stead of Tenergy series, which is undoubtedly the most popular rubber for pros.

However, I think this rubber is also tricky rubber to use because of its tackiness.
When I loop or drive, I have to move my forearm very fast.
However, when you can hit balls with your maximum power, your loop and drive will be super spinny and super fast.
Because of its tackiness, it's also good for short games like stops, push and flick.

Overall, I really enjoy playing with this rubber and I think I won't change my FH rubber for a while.

I'm referring to a DHS Hurricane 3 NEO rubber glued on the blade with VOC free glue (butterfly chack).
To my amateur hand I didn't feel this rubber lacking in any area of the game comparing to my previous rubber XIOM Sigma I Europe.
I have to admit I quite enjoyed the change. Of course blocking isn't exceptional with this rubber and it requires some precision.
The durability of the rubber is really low. When it contacts the table there will probably be a piece of it cut. The thing that saves it though is that it is on my forehand and I usually get the table with the backhand rubber. Next rubber I am going to get for my forehand will be h3 boosted because I'm curious, how a boosted rubber feels like. I have read people saying that this rubber was significantly different from a typical tensor, I didn't notice this to be honest. For me the rubber felt similar, as for it collecting dust, it does, like every rubber, not more. Also some people think this rubber is slow, I don't agree, I did try a TIBHAR EL-P and it felt slow comparing to H3 when looping.

Overall I think Hurricane 3 NEO is a fair rubber for the forehand and I suggest it to people looking for a cheap blade to begin with.

I have used this rubber when I started playing table tennis, My DHS Hurricane 3 Neo (FH) was partnered with a Tenergy 05 (BH) and DHS PG-7 as the blade.
In terms of speed, This rubber is fast because of it's hardness. Mostly my flat drives go zoom when I hit the ball very hard. My only problem with this rubber is when I'm playing defense, It's kinda hard to block using Chinese Rubbers IMO. But overall it's a very good rubber, very suitable for players who have an all-out offensive style. I used mine for about 1 year and a half, and IMO it's durable.
