Reviews of the DHS NEO Hurricane 3
Ashmoor said this on September 15, 2009:
This is a great rubber and for a very small price compared to others. Some people say it's slow, because when you play close to the table the tackynes plays an important role, however, if you hit the ball hard.. it bounces quite fast, therefore slow hits are slow and fast hits are fast. Overall great rubber.

Great rubber for the price. Very much like the original H3 but with a bit more zip. Nowhere near as fast or spinny as a glued H3, but that's not an option these days.

Not as fast as the old prov h3 glued up but not too bad.. Unfortunately I ripped my topsheet on my first session, but that was my bad...
pretty good spin.. better than tenergy or whale II
though slightly slower...more controllable and easier to loop bottom spin... but far table lacks some power...
serves are spinny as hell..and short table recieves are pretty controlled as well..
all in all a pretty good rubber..
btw..the neo is softer than the original
good for loopers...recommend harder faster blades =)

A very good rubber. My third ball attaks of my forehand has never been better.

Glued hurricane 3 used to be my favorite backhand rubber for the power and consitency but then came the speed glue ban era. I definately believe this is the answer to that era. Plays better than I ever remember a glued hurricane 3 playing. Very consitnent backhand looping and driving rubber. Not to mention excellent spin for serving and pushing.

were on earth do u buy this rubber????
BeaverMD said this on February 27, 2010:
I liked it! Not sure if I'll stick with it but it's definitely fun to play with coming from speed glued Tackifire Special Soft. Nice midcourt power on Neo H3, which is pretty much what speed glued regular H3 provided. Great serves and pushes. My only problems were putting away high balls. It's very difficult with Neo H3's harder sponge but I hope to adapt soon or just twirl like what you see the Chinese players do.

compared to h3 commercial, this rubber has better bounce and zip, lesser tacky though

great ruuber for bh and fh.has a great spin,good speed and very good control.it is incredible for serves and is very cheap.
slashattack said this on June 30, 2010:
It took me about a week to break this in.
Loops with side spin have a large hook. Speed is good. Control could be a little better. Feels lighter than Hurricane 2 (commercial). It is a tacky rubber, but not as sticky as my old Hurricane 2.
1st month: Peek performance. Excellent spin and speed.
2-3 months: Good performance. Noticeable drop in spin. Speed is a little slower.
3+ months: Average spin and speed. Good control, especially for backhand.

Cons - Commerical DHS rubbers are always different, from each batch to the next, but nothing to do about that.
Pros - Very good alternative to higher priced rubbers like Tenergys. Less tacky than the original Hurricane 3, which makes this rubber a lot like European/Japanese topsheet with chinese sponge. It will not lift up the ball with picking up a ball with the rubber, but you can hear a slow motion to it. Many gears. The sponge is somewhat softer than the original H3. Serves are very well done. Looping is really easy. Very good alternative to a Tenergy, because my two Tenergy ( 05 and 25 ) died of spin. Great alternative to a high priced rubber, I strongly recommend just buying one sheet of this rubber and try it for yourself.
Oh, and in the beginning at the start of opening this rubber, if you would like to have the sponge even softer ( Like I did ), reglue the rubber several times. It's almost a euro/jap rubber.

Great spin on serves and looping. But had some problem pushing/looping when tsp spectol pushed a ball to me
Saif said this on November 6, 2010:
Ultimate forehand rubber. If you play close to the table loop or over the table loop, 3rd ball attack and love to swing hard then this rubber is for you.
Anonymous said this on November 10, 2010:
when i first use it, i'm impressed with it.(my playing style is aggressive topspin strategy). I can make a good topspin with a great speed with my FH better than T64 n T05. I can also make a good service whether the backspin serves or chop serves,it goes perfectly well n very spinny. Looping?? I can say its extremly well than T05 (729 ATT CA Carbon Blade Palio Macro Pro on my BH side H3 NEO are on my FH side.)

really good rubber. It is heavy though so think about which blade you put it on. any way, it's not that hard at all. its only 40 degrees.
Anonymous said this on December 9, 2010:
I won't put ratings, just a comment. I've played 3-4 sessions with it so far. 39 degrees. interesting rubber with largest gear range I've seen - so slow on slow shots, surprisingly fast on fast ones. easier for 3rd ball than for longer rallies as it requires more grazing style of looping to be consistent. large throw angle variation, high throw for slow shots, significantly lower with speed shots. makes me harder to determine bat angle because it needs to be more closed for slow loops as they tend to go over the table, while fast counters need not too closed bat to go over the net. because it is this specific it needs some time to get used to. spin is strong (but there are stronger), topsheet is semi-tacky - my red didn't hold the ball even new except for a very brief moment. better for flat-hitting than most chinese rubbers. rewards adding some wrist in FH stroke. less consistent for slow looping. has some sensitivity to incoming spin. good for serving. mine 39 deg does not feel hard without tuning (I never tune)

i have tried this rubber and this rubber is amazing.This rubber is for topspin players slightly tacky topsheet
Paul Bondarenko said this on January 4, 2011:
Very good rubber. Allows all kinds of looping, and is good at short game.
Darren Rapacchi said this on January 21, 2011:
I use this on my FH (RED 2.1mm) on a Butterfly Kong Linghui blade.
I loop on my FH from mid distance topspin at close table.
If I load the ball up with side spin and loop the ball is almost undefendable as the ball just spins of the opponents bat and off the table in all sorts of angles.
A very spinny rubber, loads the ball well, opponents and training partners comments have all been positive regarding spin.
Mixed with Skyline 2 Neo on my BH the best combo I have used.
Anonymous said this on January 22, 2011:
Okay I have tried this rubber on a few different blades now. This rubber is a little hard to get used to. Has a large gear range. Needs to be used by an offensive/aggressive player. The ball curve/arch on this rubber is crazy! I've never used a rubber with as close to as much hook while looping. Once I got my looping consistent with it, they were rarely returned. I like this rubber, just be warned it takes some practice to get a feel for it.
kaluz said this on February 21, 2011:
Gave the legendary H3, 2.2 NEO sponge, a try after a few months with a Tensor (Vega Pro B 2.0). This will certainly remain as my FH rubber for quite some time. After some stroke adjustments, control is excellent and there are many gears, slow when slow stroke, tackiness helps, and when driving, you see the ball where you want to put it, with power and spin. Excellent ratio in value per price. Any offensive player needs to try this at least once.
sushiiiiiikinggggg said this on March 7, 2011:
This rubber is one of the best chinese rubbers i have ever tried. DHS has been able to put the extra speed into the NEO sponge. Im using it on a control blade now, so im mostly using it for topspin rather than hit it deeply into the blade. If you are able to only use the topsheet and the sponge to create offensive strokes on your control blade, it becomes very fast. But too much friction between the rubber and the sponge has caused it to become softer, thus powerful for topspinning attack game.
Patrick said this on April 1, 2011:
Good rubber for forehand but only after one month and needs good blade with some flex to bring it to it optimal performance.
Serve: good, but lacks a bit of speed for fast serve
Return of serve: good for short balls but for medium length serves, it reacts to spin a bit.
Opening/3rd ball attack: very nice on the forehand. High throw and really good spin. But need to change technique on looping lower flatter backspin balls, i.e. brush more required.
Block: fine and consistent
Counter: very nice, need to close bat more due to very reactive sponge at mid distance:
Conclusion: Like a euro-jap rubber at mid distance for counter looping, superior than euro-jap for opening loop on forehand, good spin on serve but lacks a bit of speed for long ones, return slightly poorer as it reacts a bit to more to spin. Other con: requires 2 weeks to 1 month to soften and play optimally.

this rubber has a ridiculously high throw, but once you break it in you will learn to love it, great speed and great sound found the sound abit weird at first but now i love it
hiap_shun19 said this on August 12, 2011:
i use this for fh. so much spin with good speed
kazeem said this on August 26, 2011:
I used this rubber on fh side of yasaka ma lin soft ( off -) ,still I couldn't control it
feodoz said this on August 26, 2011:
good for looping against backspin, smashing good too) I find it very powerfull, so choppers cannot find clues agains it) feels a bit heavy. Pushes often not controllable. It shines in powerattack spinbased game.

I love this rubber, its great for looping. Too bad its so inconsistent... but if you do get a good sheet of it, its amazing.
I use it on my forehand on Galaxy V-14 blade
spinfreak said this on September 18, 2011:
unlimited gears, more than sufficient tackiness, a rubber for spinfreaks.
caddillacmatt said this on September 29, 2011:
Ive bought this rubber three or four times, but have only gotten one good sheet. And that one only played peak for a month. And none of them matched the speed or spin of tenergy I usually like using on my forehand, so I guess you get what you pay for. You can buy several sheets of this to find a good one, or get one sheet of tenergy and know its good... seemingly spending the same money. Butterfly prices suck, but at least you get what you pay for. Very unhappy with this product
powerlefty said this on October 10, 2011:
The best forehand rubber I have ever used. Definitly have to adjust your stroke (racket angle and foreward momentum) to get the best out of it though. Can't wait to get my hands on a provincial.
Anonymous said this on November 14, 2011:
This rubber is great for forehand. Not very fast but absolutely great control and spin. Probably one of the most spinny rubber.
This rubber can do everything from smashing, looping to chopping. Only rubber that I can safely say that it can really do everything.
Anonymous said this on December 2, 2011:
I love this rubber! If you have fast legs and great technique, this is the best rubber. I dominate the game with it when have enough physics! It not good in playing slow motion game, it requires acceleration and you always have to spin the ball, no flat. Flat strokes have no control. Just spin, and remember that control is in spin. In short game (and returning serves) also spin, but more delicate and fast. So if you want to go one step further in tt then learn to play with it!

A very very good rubber with speed glue and booster!

surprisingly good FH rubber. liked it a lot since the first time i played with it. i'll give it few months credit
Anonymous said this on January 10, 2012:
good rubber overall. but, because this rubber is a bit slow, try not to go far from the table. you need to do chinese style strokes for better performance.
ilmi said this on January 21, 2012:
I just hit with this rubber with a little effort but the effect of spin is marvelous
seguso said this on January 28, 2012:
This is a medium-high throw, tacky, very hard rubber, only usable on very flexible blades, rather slow, very unforgiving, with few gears.
speed: this rubber is slow unless used on very flexible blades like stiga offensive classic or stiga offensive cr. stiga offensive nct is already too stiff and the rubber performs suboptimally. on very flexy blades, the rubber is not slow anymore in loops, but is still too slow on smashes, where you might lack the power to finish the point-
the main feature of this rubber is that its throw is higher than classic Chinese rubbers. this allows you to be more aggressive on forehand, and makes your fh swing quicker because you charge the shot more from behind and less from below the table. This makes H3 NEO a deadly weapon on forehand, especially close to the table, with a very flexy blade such as stiga offensive classic.
The specialty of this rubber is off-the-bounce counterdrive against loop. Deadly.
Feels as hard as H3 regular (strangely) despite the booster. Also has better touch than regular H3. And is faster.
unlike regular H3, this rubber does not get much softer if tuned with paraffin oil. The sponge stays firm.
The topsheet is very durable: it will last one year.
this rubber has few gears, compared for example to Vega Pro: NEO h3 is fast enough close to the table but lacks a bit of power when smashing, or looping far from table.
control: very unforgiving, due to the hardness. Why? Because on opening loops you have to brush very thinly and with a lot of strength. If you hesitate and brush a bit less thinly, or a bit more slowly, this rubber punishes you. This is one of the reasons I use vega pro.

i bought it because i tried my friend use it. it was spiny and great for serves and good for continues and long rally. how ever when i put it in my sardius blade. it didnt go well,its hard to break in. it reacts so much and lacks power
Mr. Leitz said this on February 7, 2012:
I played the DHS TG Skyline 2 before. Now I choose the DHS Neo Hurricane 3, because I need more speed and you really get it from this rubber. It's still slow if you play normal strokes or slow hits, but if you gonna attack, it provides a lot of speed.
The sponge is for european and american standards still hard, but a little bit smoother than other chinese rubbers. Block is not so good, because the angle which the ball leave from your racket ist high and the ball doesn't reach the table anymore.
But very positiv is the loop and topspin. The tacky surface gives you so much spin, that your opponent nearly never had chance to block the ball.
The 3rd ball attack is great!
Serving with this rubber is also good, the ball get so much spin that your serves getting more dangerous.
So overall: that's a great rubber to attack, not to play passiv, just activ playing recommended.
Maybe I will try the Neo Hurricane 3 Provincial oder National version, because they say it's a little bit smoother and better to control and attack.
The price for that rubber is all right.
ilmiamin said this on February 26, 2012:
this is the best chinese rubber that I've ever used. you can generate lot of speed and spin with nice control. that's why malong used it as his forehand. smash, block, chop, topspin really easy used this rubber. I use 2.2 mm as my forehand

definitely slower rubber. Dont know why people rate 8.6 speed for this one

technology is awesome.i used this rubber and am still using it..it offers great spin in looping.my game is now become flawless.but there is always something to learn.hurricane 3 neo i am your fan nd a big one toO
Naufal said this on May 30, 2012:
Amazingly tacky and spinny rubber..good speed too..i'm using it in my FH..my sidespin and topspin loop has never been better..get dirty really quick and lost it tackiness..after clean it, the rubber shine again..
John0127 said this on June 27, 2012:
lately i use it on my forehand due to its tremendous spin and speed. but i really bought this for my BH. it sorta lacks consistency but maybe i just lack practice :P its awesome on both forehand and backhand. it can make a very spinny serve. i forgot to mention this is my first rubber. its a very tacky rubber and that is why i love it!!! its my favorite rubber for now.
michiy said this on June 27, 2012:
I use one on my FH on a Hinoki Shake Swift blade (medium). I found that it was very easy to do 3rd ball loops, but because of of the hardness of the sponge the 6th ball drive are always trickier (for me!). This rubber is awesome but it is hard to get the right angle.
zek said this on August 23, 2012:
I use it on my backhand. It produces a lot of winners for me. It is one of the best rubbers I have tried. It can serve very well and can produce a lot of spin on any type of stroke. Definitely a winner. You need good timing to unleash the full potential of this rubber.
amekun said this on August 28, 2012:
good for backhand
especially for those who lacks power in the BH area
the extra bounce really helps alot in BH loops or Flicks
not really that tacky and spinny
barmaley said this on September 7, 2012:
Very good rubber for FH, but not really fast. Spinny, makes a lot of troubles for counterlooping (even for Tenergy 25). Good for serves and blocks. Not good for far from the table. Looses in quality a bit after about half a year.
reef said this on October 20, 2012:
VERY impressive speed'n'spin capabilities, but only when you play like monster. pretty good short game and serves. blocks bad coz dead sponge, but H3N allows you to counter loop-drive very easy. nice and interesting rubber
kevin21 said this on December 30, 2012:
I recently use this rubber for my bh. Nice control but the power is quite lower than i expected. But i can say that this rubber is really suitable for someone that looking for a great control and medium low trajectory.

not as good as h3
arlas said this on February 14, 2013:
tested out a bit, I felt it great from te beginning. Easy switch from european non-tacky to chinese tacky; no major movement change. I feel it really good on all kind of topspin, less good on no-spin drives. No catapult effect at all, maybe boosting a little bit would help.
summer said this on March 12, 2013:
coming from a jap, soft rubber, it was very awkward the first time I used this rubber. give it a few weeks and you'll be playing along great with it. very spinny, very durable if taken a good care of. mine lasted for 2 yrs, a big drop in spin though, but still, it will make your opponents cry.
topAttack said this on May 7, 2013:
This rubber is pretty cheap and it's tempting to buy it and try it out when you're at the beginning. if you're in this position, you're about to make the biggest mistake a beginner can make.
These chinese (most of the DHS) rubbers are fast , heavy, hard, tacky and very difficult to control for a beginner. For over the table game this one is ok, but as soon as you want to loop it will punish you if you don't have the strength and the perfect stroke. It will make things very difficult because t is heavy , almost no touch because of the hardness. Blocks go downwards and end up into the net and the tackiness will make it very spin-sensitive.
All of these make everything very confusing for a beginner, even for an intermediate. I dare say , if you haven't been playing for more than 5 years, these rubbers are not for you. I have lost almost 4 months trying to get along with these rubbers when i should have been perfecting my strokes with nice, easy, medium-soft Japanese rubbers. Don't make the same mistake.
pengrip said this on May 9, 2013:
This rubber is pretty good but it lacks bounciness. Sticky topsheet makes it good for service. A little too hard but overall an amazing rubber. You need strenght to spin it though.
pen_grip said this on May 26, 2013:
Hurricane 3 Neo is a unique rubber. It can generate tons of spin, but sometimes, by a slight change of angle, generates no spin at all. I believe it is because I'm just starting to use it. I think that it has the potential for creating great serves. Speed is above average but to make full use of its ability, it takes time to master. Worth its price of S$35. I am playing penhold but I think this rubber is better for a shakehand style. I looped with it with penhold but no spin was generated. Really hard to block an attack from a shakehand user though. Slow and spinny confuses many. A great rubber.
laki said this on August 15, 2013:
Currently using H3 NEO Red 2.2 40deg. on a FH of Joola Flame Fast blade, and I am more than pleased with it. It took a couple of hours of braking in, but now it works like a dream. This is the first time I am using a chinese rubber, and loving it. You can do just about everything with it, if your style is attack play close to mid far away from table. If you go further from the table, you will need to add more power to your shots. This is the only time I have missed tenergy or bluefire on my FH. For everything else (blocks, flicks, top spins, smashes, side spins...) I prefer H3 NEO.
For it's durability, I can't comment yet, for I've been using it for just 2 months. But after 2 months, it still hasn't lost any of it's performance.
It works better with flexible and faster blades. Durability is unbelievable.

good rubber at a small price kudos
killerbee said this on September 22, 2013:
Nothing for me. I am used to "bouncy" rubbers.
The hurricane 3 is absolutely non-bouncy, so if you drop the ball onto the racket, it will bounce 3 times and thats it.
On other rubbers, the ball will bounce 8-9 times.
Of course, this is my personal opinion, other people may like it.
Just saying that it will make a huge difference, if you come from bouncy japanese rubbers.
I sold the rubber after an hour...

Amigo said this on October 28, 2013:
Loop monster by DHS.
Super fast and spinney. Top gear amazing but can lack a bit in medium gear where tensors are better due to technology.
All the rest is said about this rubber no need for looooong review. One of my favorite rubbers on FH next to TG3 on any type of sponge (Neo, Blue, Old glue sponge and so on....)
Enjoy TT :)
vanjr said this on December 9, 2013:
I have tried a couple of sheets of commercial H3 over the years but never really liked them. I decided to give this neo H3 a try. To be honest with you I cannot seem to put the ball on the table. It seems to be the highest throw rubber I have ever seen. I did like the sponge and attaching it to the blade was neat. But despite using a lot of other chinese rubber in the past I can/\'t seem to use this. I also got a sheet of skyline 3 neo at the same time and that is much, much easier to use.

a very nice rubber, u can play close and far from the table.
Singapow said this on January 13, 2014:
great forehand rubber for loopers,high throw on soft loops and low throw on killer loops,great control,not the best for flat hitting,especially far from the table,but who cares,this stuff easily eat the opponent backspin!
PetitTianTian said this on January 13, 2014:
It is a very good rubber!
The first impressions you'll think it is a very fast rubber, but then when you play with it you'll see it's not to fast and hard.
Spin is awesome, it's tackiness makes the due time longer, generating more spin and control.
At all it is a great rubber, but for people who likes non tacky rubbers I don't recommend.
