Description of DHS Hurricane 2 (H2)
"Hurricane II", the new rubber especially designed for Wang Liqin, Yan Sen in 2000 Olympic Games, can create much higher speed and spin than any other products while keeping stable control. In addition, it has a strong near-table offensive power for making ball fly in low arc so that frustrating opponent's defence.
Reviews of the DHS Hurricane 2 (H2)

This is a really fantastic rubber. It has so much versatility, especially on offensive shots. The speed is very good, spin is fantastic, and there is fantastic control on offense. It is easier to control on offense than defense. Loops and smashes and flips all have great control and versatility. Serve is spinny with ease of placement and control. Smash is a wonderful shot with this rubbe, with lots of power and control. Loops have very good(but not incredible) speed, which is not a bad thing. Advanced players will tell you that slow loops are more important than power loops to set up the points. This rubber has lots of control and versatility on control. You can loop fast or loop high, slow, and spinny. Short game is effective as well. On blocking, it's good enough but not really a strength, however, that doesn't become a problem if you use exclusively on forehand, which is what I recommend. Instead of blocking, the counter-attacking is really fantastic. For advanced players, taking big swings on opponents' loops is extremely effective with this rubber.
The only downsides to this rubber is the weight. Indeed, it is quite a heavy rubber, which can make your racquet hard to maneuver. There is almost no speed glue effect, and the speed is not as fast as rubbers like Bryce. Again, this extra speed isn't really a benefit unless you are power looping from far off the table. H2 is designed for power and control and quick offense close to the table.
Black tends to be tackier.

Its a prety good rubber, it is king at services and loops prety well too. Its great for driving but sucks at choping but who cares, its for offensive players. Its definetely slower than packaged, unglued at least, but its still acceptable.

This is a really nice rubber. Its one of the few Chinese rubbers that I've tried, and it's tackiness is really useful on the BH. A lot of my friends use it to pull off slow, spinny loops that confuse their opponents. Overall, a hard but very good rubber for a lot of players.

This rubber is super spinny. It's one of the best rubbers available for driving.

There are different variations of this rubber. I used the 2.20mm thickness / 41 density version. My H2 had an amazing close-to-the-table game. The speed of this rubber was great, and the spin is even better. There are only very few rubbers I know that can surpass H2 in spin. Quick attack/drive close to table are very effective as are loops at short and mid range. The only thing I did not like about this rubber is that its far-from-table capability is pretty low. A LOT of effort must be exerted to make loops work effectively at a distance. I have a friend who uses H2 with a lower density. His version offers much more control and better far from the table game, BUT its close to the table power is at a deficit with a speed much lower than the one I have. In order for this rubber to work maximally, you should know what density and thickness fits best with your game beforehand. This is otherwise an awesome rubber.

H2 is heavy and very spinny, great for looping. It's tackiness has faded a little since I got it, which is expected, but it still plays very well.

Sticky Icky! I use it on my backhand, but have also previously used it on both sides on a 7-ply Carbon. Great for spinny serves and heavy looping offense. Not a good rubber for beginners who are trying to develop counter-strokes or service returns/reads; it has no forgiveness if you guess the wrong 'counter-angle' basics. Controlability is easier with an advanced player and can be better managed with a soft, 5-ply blade. If H2 is speed-glued on a with a stiff carbo/arilyte, you've got a monster in your hands- provided you can handle that beast!

Perhaps the most powerful rubber that exsists today. Bit tricky to use but you can't have everything

Great rubber needs to be used by experienced players though, this is fast if you can put lots of topspin
livabetes said this on December 9, 2009:
great rubber...use it for my forehand..offensive
tkm said this on December 14, 2009:
The rubber is made for offensive players with a hard sponse for having a quick attack. It's hardly control if it is used for defensive.
Halfmoon said this on December 20, 2009:
After started out with Hammond on my Septear, I found that the Hammond lack the bite to spin balls compared to my friend's Hurricane 3. So I got a Hurricane 2 2.1 Black to test it out on my FH, and it has changed my game dramatically.
Initially, being used to the Japanese sponge, I found the H2 really dead, and hard. I do not get the explosive shot.
But I persevere to adapt to this rubber, and the process is worth the effort.
I service with FH, and now, my service has become one of my strong point with my deceptive moves and help me to keep my opponents guessing. Plus, the spin generated by the tacky top sheet is so wild, it is definitely not easy to return even if they guessed the spin correctly.
My looping has improved tremendously too, and my initial adjustment to the hard sponge took a while, as I needed to generate more of the force from my strokes to get the speed that I easily gotten from the bouncy Japanese sponge.
This rubber is definitely not the fastest, and Nittaku version of Hurricane uses Japanese sponge and it much more bouncy and faster.
I am still evaluating the Nittaku Hurricane 2. It is not as tacky, but it is much faster, and looping is excellent too.. the spin is still there, slightly lesser than the DHS version, and I do like the feel of Nittaku H2 sponge...
I think it is a good to pair this DHS H2 rubber with a fast blade, like my friend set up of Galaxy T-8 with DHS Hurricane 3. T-8 compensate the speed of the rubber and it compliment each other well.
The Hurricane Series is now my preferred FH rubber, and the DHS Hurricane are much more affordable to change regularly...... The Nitt are more expensive, and still have the Hurricane NEO to evaluate.

I have this rubber on my forehand. The shots are probably not as fast as hell, but with the correct technique, you can get speed and spin at a spot on the table with high consistency.
slashattack said this on April 3, 2010:
Very tacky and lots of spin. Good speed and control. Amazing close to the table game. However, this rubber is heavy.
Dom Bragge said this on May 6, 2010:
I like it & use it well for BH offensive. Took a while to read for defense & I found it took me 20hours to learn how to use it close to the net. It goes very smooth from oil on my finger & needs cleaning every hour or two.
Quite grippy. Med fast.

Wow is all i can say. I just bought this rubber for my nittaku kasumi basic blade. This combo is a perfect fit not only does the rubber have amazing spin for low power loops it has the speed to really step up your loops. The only complaint i have is the rubber is really heavy. The rubber would be best on a 70 gram blade.
jmluat said this on September 6, 2010:
The good: it is very tacky and does well for adding spin during service. looping is very, very spinny. It is very inexpensive, and it does last for a long time if kept clean.
The bad: Like the H3, it requires maximal effort from the user to get fast power loops and loop drives. This can be an issue because with the quickness that is evolving in the game, sometimes you just don't have enough time to recover from such a large stroke.
Jason said this on October 31, 2010:
Best close to the table power looping rubber full stop. Nothing else makes as much devastating low throw spin or is as easy to loop at full effort right at the table. If we had a separate rating for control at the table H2 would rate 10 but because it takes such a maximal effort to hit the ball in the H2 way, it's next to impossible to stay consistant with it from medium distance looping against faster balls.
The provincial versions are softer and easier to use but the commercial is almost as good, just harder in the topsheet and a little more tacky
Wilbeerthoven said this on December 29, 2010:
I play this game for almost 13 years now and i've never played with such hard sponge like this before. I switched from a very used T05 and besides the low price, i choose it because i thought this would improve my killer forehand attack on the opponent's service that i had so much success using the T... Guess what? NO really improvement here, even with speed glue in my Super Core Cell Off+ blade!! Ok, i kinda like my control blocking but that's all, everything else sucks and requires 24/7 of training to assimilate the change and in the end of the day you'll never enjoy play with this...
That's not a sponge, but a carpet and unless Wang Liqin is hard to imagine another human being feeling fine in the eye of this Hurricane.
jeff_attc said this on January 7, 2011:
Hurricanes and several of DHS's prodicts have quality control issues. However when you do get a good sheet of commercial H2 or a provincial version it plays very well. Has an extremely tacky topsheet that aids in a good service and short game. Is actually quite fast if you have a drive style stroke.
ilikepie said this on January 14, 2011:
OMFG this rubber is awesome. i use it on a custom Jpen for hitting and loopdriving. the throw angle is nice for smashing but the rubber is really tacky for high spin sevices and loops. also good for counterlooping. requires chinese loop to reach maximum speed.
Anonymous said this on April 18, 2011:
There are faster and spinnier rubbers now available, but H2 to me hasn't got any significant weaknesses at a good price. It allows for very nice and sharp loops. The question is what fits your game best and this stuff does it for me. My playing style is close-to-the-table offensive/allround. I have got sponge 2.2 on FH, and 2.0 and BH, i wouldn't go for more because of the weight.
seguso said this on August 10, 2011:
Being used to Hurricane 3 max, I slapped a Hurricane2 black max on a blade and played with it 10 minutes against a robot. I was expecting something different, I am disappointed. It is very difficult to use. The problem is that the rubber seems inconsistent: some balls seem to go to net or out for no apparent reason. Even when looping against a robot, when presumably I always do the same shot, sometimes I net the ball for mysterious reasons.
I have experienced this problem (inconsistency) with 729 40-H also.
Maybe it's a problem with how I hit the ball.
I have to try it again tuned, or the NEO version. I am still not sure if it's a sponge problem or a topsheet problem.
The sponge is harder than H3, and the topsheet is much more tacky. Spin on serves is incredible.
throw: throw when driving is lower than H3, and like a traditional Chinese rubber such as 729 classic. However, throw when brushing is higher than H3. Brush loops are really high over the net.
UPDATE: after testing it again, I think I understand the problem: it is a topsheet problem, not a sponge problem. Due to the tackyness, throw when brushing is much higher than throw when driving. So the rubber has two "modes": a brush mode and a drive mode. Unfortunately my drive shot is sometimes lightly brushed, so that I fall in between the two modes, and the rubber behaves unpredictably for me. Or maybe, at some ball height I brush a bit less or a bit more, without noticing, and this rubber does not forgive and I go to net or out. With some practice this should go away, but so far I don't see the advantage over H3.

Excellent rubbers for mid and short range, very good control, it works good against any type of spin, and again is very effective against fragas
julian said this on October 3, 2011:
what an amazing rubber, gives the ball so much sping and speed despite its really heavy, if you manage to use it the right way, its a letal weapong, as other people say above, its really useful in a close to table game, when it comes to long distance game, its not that effective,
how ever, i use one of this rubbers on my forehand with a dhs h wh, this combination allows me to have a good game in different distances to the table..
all i have to say, a very nice rubber, not useful for noobies.
powerlefty said this on October 10, 2011:
Its a rock. Need a thin allwood blade and a loop driving game to get the best out of it. Would not recommend with the speedglue ban in effect.
Alex said this on December 17, 2011:
This rubber is spiny...not than the T05, but close...the arc, depends of your technique...block is tricky, because when you hit the ball flat (i think because the hard sponge) the bounce is so slow, but if you block with closed angle, the ball get the grip of the rubber and the blocking is fast with spin...i played for 3 hours and i did not change the technique to play with it...just to make clear, i am a T05 user...FH/BH, but i'm thinking to change to DHS rubbers...if anybody can recommend me a fast/spiny rubber similar or close to T05, it would be appreciated.

I think I have finally found my forehand rubber, and it is defenetly this beast! i have it on a carbon OFF+ blade and its a monster. its fast with smashes, the spin is incredible with the very low throw and it really kicks off the table fast with the spin. it gives defenders a real hard time dealing with the low throw because it drops short off of the table because of the spin making it dive short, so they have to stay close to the table, which is very deadly when vsing this rubber because it is very good close-mid to the table and decent far back game. If you smash in the right spot with this rubber, it is not coming back!!! the only bad part about this rubber is that it is pretty heavy, but i use a carbon blade so that gets rid of some weight, but dont let that stop you from buying this. if your a novice you shouldnt get it because of the hard sponge, get a defense rubber is what i recomend for begginers. but if your not and you are a attacker wanting alot of spin but still has good speed then get it. but if you play far from the table alot and arent a close-mid to table player. then you should probably get a euro/jap rubber because you not going to find a chiniese rubber that is better than a euro/jap rubber at far from table play. this thing is at its best close to mid table game, and is incredible if you can tame it, which didnt take long for me. so BUY THIS RUBBER!!

merde savage! hard,heavy,sticky,muddy, but wild merda! it has something like sponge under the dead rotten rubber! just not for me.

I use the DHS hurricane II on a persson powercarbon (OFF blade) on my FH.
I'm now able to counterloop my opponents spin close to the table. I can't work out how to do it away from the table. very good to control blocks and choprally's (get alot of backspin).
RZ said this on May 26, 2012:
v.hard rubber when first out from the packet, tune it 5 to 6 times before using will soften the rubber a bit, as result a very versatile rubber. deadly serve, great spin and good speed.
al1 said this on August 25, 2012:
This is the most suitable chinese rubber for me. Next good DHS would be DHS 666. E.g. DHS NEO TG2 did not give me such a good touch to the game than H2 and 666.
machmach_3 said this on December 30, 2012:
This rubber excels for loops & brush loops also looping strong backspin balls.I am gonna say this but its kinda weired in blocking is blocks very well without any effort as if it sucks the spin outta the ball but in service receiving its sensitive to incoming spin.Its speed is amazing good average to high speed with great and easy control.Its an amazing rubber with good price would recommend it to anyone getting rubber within similar price range
summer said this on March 12, 2013:
superb!!! got this currently on my amultart ZLC at 2.2 ultra low throw. attack with drive style chinese swings and truly, its not coming back. in fact, you can make points through your serves, as this rubber is super spinny. dont block, though, it will net because of the tackyness. easy to attack than block. flicks, drives, even chops are well did with this rubber, excellent!
