The rubber surface of GOLDARC 8 is highly elastic just like a fully bent bow, which can easily create strong friction. This smooth surface rubber with underlying intensive big-pimple structure gives the rubber great elasticity and off-court power. The player can enjoy the instant feeling of striking with minimal effort and will appreciate the crisp hitting sound.

GOLDARC 8 has outstanding performance in strength and speed, bringing an overwhelming pressure to the opponent in full court. This rubber is suitable for both forehand and backhand.

GOLDARC 8, the highly elastic non-sticky rubber, was developed by the DHS R&D center and German rubber-making expers with the consultation of World Champion Wang Liqin.

Plaque mettre entre tibhar mx-s et nittaku fastarc g1 :
La diffrence essentielle est la duret de la plaque et le angle de rejet, le reste est assez similaire.
Je ne parle que de la plaque 47.5 degrs en paisseur mdium.
Bon spin et duret plus tendre que 47.5, je l evaluerai entre 42 et 45 8 ressemble aux mousses cornilleau pro GT 39, en moins alvoles.
Duret : mx-s > g8 g1
Angle de rejet :g1> g8 > mx-s
Spin : g1 g8 = mx-s, difference trs lgre .
Bloc : mx-s > g8 > g1
Je continue essayer cette plaque qui semble trs quilibre dans ses forces.

Perfect rubber. I like it better than the 05. Better spin, speed and MUUUCHHHH more control.
Use it on BH, on Ma Long 5 and neo 3 on FH.
Second setup is:
DHS 301, GA8 on BH, T05 FH.
If T05 had better control-I could switch between them.
LOVE IT.

First off, I'm a 5th Division level (of 7~8 divisions depending on region) player so take my review with a grain of salt. So far, I've played with many different rubbers but go-to rubber so far has been MX-P, Rasanter R47, and T05.

I'm on second sheet of "Gold Arc 8 max/50 degree" on my FH. The blade is Fangbo B2 (carbon). First sheet was un-boosted and it was a hard to get used to. quite bouncy. It's also heavy. Even my coach said it's heavy compared to R47 I had on before. It seems to be on par or slightly heavier than MX-P. My coach (former pro player) also tested the rubber and said it's a bit bouncy (he uses T05).

Unless you are a skilled player, 47.5 degree sponge version may be better all around when using it without booster oil.

Second sheet was boosted and made a world of difference. The difference was most noticeable among all the rubbers I've used. Looping was easy with a ton of top spin, smashes were clean and powerful, counters were a blast, and power drives were super fast and spinny with satisfyingly loud clicking sounds. Downside is that the booster only lasts about 3 weeks.

Un-boosted
- Fast but bouncy
- hard to control
Speed: GA8>MX-P>R47=T05
Spin: T05>=R47>MX-P>=GA8
Control: T05>R47>MX-P>>>>>>GA8

Boosted
- Fast, much better control, spinny
Speed: GA8>MX-P>R47=T05
Spin: T05>=R47>GA8>MX-P
Control: T05>GA8>R47>MX-P

or something along these lines.

GA8 being $33 from HK, compared to ~$36 for R47 and MX-P and ~$55 for T05 in my country, it is a winner. Also, considering T05's notoriously short life expectancy, R47's grippy but fast wearing top sheet, and MX-P's great but fast dwindling sponge, GA8 is a bargain and a hidden gem.

Conclusion: GA8 isn't exceptional in one aspect but great in all. For me, when boosted, it's a super offensive rubber that can do everything better than most.

Black Gold Arc 8 2.0mm on FH with hurricane Long 5 and yasaka Sweden extra. To fast for me on hurricane Long 5, however perfect on yasaka Sweden extra, some might want some more Speed. It reminds me of rakza 7 which Also is a great rubber. Everything is Good, try Gold arc

 External Review for DHS Gold Arc 8 - 47.5 Hardness on March 6, 2018
I'm coming from Xiom Omega V with Timo Boll ZLC and I really love this rubber. It's got tons of power and good grip. I can control the blocks very well. Placing the ball back at the exact same spot consistently. It's a slightly higher throw angle which I enjoy. Serving is about normal but still good. Where this rubber excels is away from table and looping hard. I have complete control and power when I want it. The ball feels like it explodes off the face but with spin. I can't say I've tried chopping with it because this is an offensive rubber. I really love this thing. I won't be switching any time soon.

The search for the perfect rubber has ended! It is DHS Goldarc 8 at 50 degrees Max thickness. What a rubber, unbelievably good at everything, speed, control, spin, ball placement, serves, blocks... Name it and GA8 is there to fulfill your expectations. Not to mention it is very forgiving, very easy to use. The rubber has a medium soft touch (pressing it with fingers) but gives a medium hard feel during play. It is excellent when counter looping and extraordinary when opening topspins in underspin balls. By far the best FH rubber I have ever tried, and I have tried a lot: T05, H3 Neo, Rakza 7, Fastarc G1, Vega Asia, Vega Pro, Baracuda, Hexer HD... If there any negative point about this rubber I would say the price. It is expensive, but not really a surprise for such good rubber.

This is an excellent control rubber. It is not nearly as fast as what it is rated at. Mind you it is not a slow rubber but not particularly fast. You can do everything well: pushes, spinny serves, flat hits, loops, both passive and active blocks. It lasts about 3 months. Just be sure to clean the top sheet at the end of the session.

 External Review for DHS Gold Arc 8 - 47.5 Hardness on January 19, 2018
Comparing to t05. Test with robot with consistance ball speed and test with multiball training with human. Have use it for 1 month. I like this rubber on the lower gear, easy to use, better click sound. I like t05 on the high gear, better speed and spin. For certain level player its not easy to maximize t05 potential because u need to make hard stroke to get the high spin. Ga8 is more forgiving and easy to make the spin on slow stroke. So sometime u will feel t05 is better and sometime u will feel ga8 is better. Its depend on your level and play style. That all and i wish good luck to everyone.

Fast rubber. Not for the faint of heart. For attacking players. Doesnt loop well. Counter attacks awesome and counter smashes even better. Doesnt play well with chinese style. More European style rubber. Acts a bit like a speedier Tenergy 05. Really bounces off the rubber fast and deep. Easy to hit long with slight shift in angles. Sensitive to incoming spin. Tested on a DHS power PG 12 Off++ paddle.
