"The surface of Goldarc 8 has the elasticity of a fully drawn bow, and has high grip. The elasticity comes from the robust pimple geometry. It has big pimples that provide large amounts of power from the mid-distance. The player profits from good feedback; and the clear sound produced upon contact with the ball provides more trust and confidence in one's shots.
Goldarc 8 possesses extreme amounts of speed and spin, and can be used to pressure one's opponent in any situation. The rubber is suitable for both forehand and backhand.
This highly elastic, non-tacky rubber was developed in collaboration with the DHS development centre, German rubber experts, and the multiple-time world champions Wang Liqin and Ma Long."

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!

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.

La uso en el derecho de mi Yasaka Extra Special. Es muy rápida, se siente demasiado el efecto catapulta. Y engancha demasiado la pelota, un poco más que la Raksza 7. Muy recomendable.
