DHS Hurricane 8 Mid
Hurricane 8 is a new generation of sticky-speed rubber. The rubber keeps a good balance between flexibility and elasticity. A new high-density sponge with 'Macro-Cell' and 'High-Elasticity Particle Osmosis' technology helps Hurricane 8 raise the elasticity by 15%. The player can also acquire a high shot speed with weak attack.
Hurricane 8 provides unique spin and unpredictable arc and enhances shot speed significantly, which brings a refreshing feeling for offensive players.
Hurricane 8 is specially designed to enhance the spin and speed of 40+ celluloid-free balls.
Hurricane 8 Mid has slightly softer sponge than Hurricane 8 Hard.
Hardness: 39 degrees

If you've watched competitive table tennis at the highest levels, then you've surely seen DHS products in action. Perhaps the most notable athlete using DHS equipment is Ma Long. A legend of the sport, Ma Long uses a Hurricane 3 rubber on his forehand. Hurricane 3 rubbers are undoubtedly the most popular rubber series from DHS and are a prime example of hard and tacky Chinese rubbers. Many players try out the Hurricane 3 and H3 Neo rubbers on their forehand as an introduction to this style of rubber. These rubbers require considerable power to fully unleash their potential, as well as proper brushing technique. You can find the H3 rubbers in Commercial (NEO), Provincial (H3, NEO) and National (H3) versions.
DHS offers rubbers with different characteristics well-suited to other uses as well. The Gold Arc 8 series is a high-powered rubber that performs more closely to other brand's flagship offerings. It has a grippy surface and fast sponge, which comes in both 47.5 and 50 degree hardness. You can find Skyline and TinArc rubbers rated as Soft, Mid-Soft and Mid-Hard.

I switched over to H8 on my forehand when it first came out after using h3 neo for quite a while and have not looked back. Like most Chinese rubbers, you need to use a full swing to get the most out of this rubber. It is very easy to vary the spin and speed of your shots and I am often amazed at some of the shots that hit the table with this stuff.

I'm reviewing Hurricane 8 hardness 40 (not 39). This is the perfect rubber for loopers. Compared to Hurricane 3 NEO 40deg, Hurricane 8 is 20% faster, more elastic, both in topsheet and sponge. Also has a lot more dwell time: the ball stays in the sponge twice as long, and then shoots off much more forward, not upwards like H3. All this while keeping all the important characteristics of Hurricane 3 (tacky, so it makes very spinny openings which will be blocked off the table). But the additional dwell time makes it usable on carbon blades. It works great with Viscaria, unlike H3 NEO 40. The arc is much lower than H3: to be precise, higher than H2 but a bit lower than Tg2. This makes your opening loops spinny but also very low, making them very hard to block. The strong points of the rubber are: low spinny openings; easy counterloops (keeps the ball low in counterloops, unlike H3N); decent speed (unlike H3N). Be warned: though more elastic and faster than the NEO rubbers, H8 will still need booster to play at advanced level. Interestingly, Johnson's Baby Oil works even better than Haifu Seamoon: it makes the rubber faster (but also a bit softer) than seamoon. So I suggest using seamoon on fh and baby oil on bh. On backhand, paired with Viscaria, this rubber allows you to counterloop instead of blocking. This is an amazing combination. It works great with both Viscaria and Pg5-x. The perfect rubber guys.
Bought about 5 months ago, black, hardness 39deg(chinese ver) & 2.15 thick. For me, H8 slightly better than neo H3 that im using before. More speed & control, spin is almost equal with less tacky. Easy to play with but need more energy to make powerful shot. Recommend for FH rubber.
"Hurricane III" was designed for the players who mainly adopt control method or have relatively weak attack power when playing 40mm ball. https://pingpongbuzz.com/best-ping-pong-paddle-under-100/The rubber can reduce a feeling of ponderousness when you strengthen power and create a long arc, which benefits the ball control and exerts fast attack and loop drive at near table.
