T8 much faster. Control and "better" is subjective. Pro01 is slower and more flexible, less of a metallic feeling and it was easier for me to land my shots with, but it doesn't have the penetrating power or crispiness of T8.

Yinhe Pro 01: 88.8g. 1485Hz. 5.8mm. Crisp feeling due to the external ALC layer compared to Pro 05 which is inner KLC. Koto top layer (hard wood).

Yinhe T-8S: 90.77g, 1550Hz. 6.1mm. 5 wood + 2 arylate carbon. Cypress top layer. 23.8mm thick handle, 26.9mm wide handle (center).

The Pro 01 is faster than the usual 7-ply Limba/5x Ayous/Limba, and has good control. The Yinhe T-8S is faster and I think the control is not as good. Maybe the H3 Neo with no boosting tones down the speed a little.

Play like Ma Long ==> Pro 05
Play like Fan Zhendong ==> Pro 01
Play like me ==> 980XX with H3 Neo 93deg f/h and long pips b/h

T8S doesn't have arylate carbon, it has kevlar carbon under the top plies. Top plies are rather thick (0.8mm-ish) and seem like Hinoki wood. My T8S samples are even stiffer (I have one with almost exactly 1600 Hz). I can confirm, that the control with it is not as good, it feels like a rocket (with slight exaggeration), because the top Hinoki plies add some springiness to the characteristics - I am still in the process of finding a suitable rubber for it.
However, picking a good rubber for Pro 01 seems much easier.

I am using t8s with hurricane 8 on forehand. I think it fits the blade well because the speed is still fast, but not outlandishly fast, also imo hurricane allows decent enough dwell time for spinning.
when I first switched to t8s (previously using fextra one), I had some issues adapting to it as well. took me about a month to get used to it properly, now I think it's a solid blade. my t8s sample is 1500 Hz iirc

From your experience, will T8s too fast pairing it with both fh/bh chinese rubbers - say 40deg??

I don't think so, but it also depends on your definition of 'too fast'. If you do go forward with that setup just remember to stick with it for a while before judging it completely
