Good for topspin, counter attacking, serving and smashing. However the top sheet is too hard. Overall good for the price but I would recommend the neo version for more control.

** Update **
After having used this rubber fairly constantly for about a year, I noticed the tackiness faded pretty quickly. Along with that the spin has noticeably dropped as well. It is still a great beginner rubber, but I am looking to purchase either a Donic Baracuda or Yasaka Mark V for my next forehand sheet. I would recommend the H3 for anyone who has a bit of experience and looking to up their game. If played with more than a few times a week, it will need to be replaced within a few months, which is more than enough time to develop skills and get used to a step up from basic rubber sheets.
I just received this item over the weekend and have used it a few times since then. Initially the rubber was very tacky, but not nearly as tacky as I had originally anticipated, based upon reviews I had read online. The rubber is very heavy and seems to require a good amount of effort in order to unleash the spin and quickness.
I like to play a heavy topspin and looping game, and this rubber is accommodating that style well. In time there should be a noticeable increase in the amount of speed and spin, as I acclimate to the new rubber.
Overall I would recommend it for anyone with strong, quick topspin/looping shots and game. I will note that it does perform well with pushes and short game shots as well.

This was a generally good rubber for me (I am a all around offensive player), tacky chinese rubber made it good for spins, yet it still was a decent topspin looper. It could still be better at flat kill shots though. Overall it is a good offensive rubber but there are better ones out there for similar prices.

Traditional Chinese rubber. Tacky, hard, slow, heavy weight and strong spin. Low arc, very good serve and short game.

This was my starting rubber on my first bat (a pre made dhs a5002). At first I thought that it was quite spinny and fast. However, after a few weeks/months of playing, I broke into the rubber and found that the spin was above average but not amazing and the speed was mainly due to my efforts. It has lasted me a year-I'm moving onto a custom made soon-and it has remained its 'new' feel but has lost lots of tackiness. Because of the sponge hardness, the dwell time is decreased. I would recommend this to beginners that have a good understanding of basic offensive, and defensive, play as there is a lot of technique required for good shots that win points. You need the right key to unlock the beasts cage ha ha! Do not buy the pre made with this rubber as blade is heavy and won't give the rubber its full ability.
