This is the first DHS Rubber that is not a Chinese rubber. It's made in Germany and I can confirm it's an effective ESN rubber no tacky. For me is the best rubber I ever tried: 1) worderful serves with a huge amount of backspin 2) very easy open loops against backspin with a lot of rotation 3) strong countertopspin 4) strong pushes 5) fantastic blocks. What do you want more? The best rubber!!!

Gold Arc 8 is very fast rubber, this is a non-tacky chinese rubber with german porous sponge, topsheet is hard but elastic crispy catapult effect bite the ball, TOK TOK TOK sound so nice. like others top line tensor rubber are high speed, high spin. if Tenergy series are expensive ... you should not miss Gold Arc 8 it easy to play, it won't let you down.

47.5° is really good!! 50° is just amazing. Spin, speed, control, counter, block, loopvsloop, it has it all. Goodbye everything else. Pair it on a Viscaria!

47.5 degree sponge, med thickness, tested on Treiber K.
I see this rubber's ratings have dropped slightly from the heady days when it first appeared on the database.
Funny how new equipment seems to garner extraordinary hype and ratings in the initial reviews.However this rubber
deserves it's very high ranking as it's one of the best I have tried. Opted for the softer, thinner version as I felt 50 degree max would be too hard/fast and that I would probably not utilize It's potential anyway. 47.5 seems perfect, the supple top sheet makes the rubber feel softer than it is, and with a high level of grip, spin based strokes have great rotation.Control is excellent , with a very linear power curve that is easy to unleash.In combination with the Treiber K, I had speed, control and consistency that fit well with my abilities.
I am an older player (60), but if you are an advanced,fast,powerful player (read younger perhaps)
then the harder/thicker version of this rubber might suit your game even better.
I thoroughly recommend this rubber as it has that great synthesis between sponge and topsheet and is Only $30US per sheet.

Great rubber for BH or FH, it suits stiff and medium stiff blade. All the characteristics of BTY T05 with lower throw angle and a bit slower than T05 using 47.5° max thickness. I will try 50° for extra speed soon. This rubber is also very durable. 50° is faster but the throw angle is too low for me, I will stick with 47.5° for now. The weight of Dhs GA8 is heavy, definitely heavier than Bty T05.
