The Explosive NEO series is here!
The new NEO Hurricane Rubbers have been produced for, and tested by, the Chinese National team to counteract the Speed Glue ban. The new NEO sponge has been developed to give the traditional sticky DHS rubbers the extra rebound but without losing the much loved spin and control. The advantage to new NEO Hurricane 3 is matched with the powerful NEO Sponge and now features stronger spin and added speed for fast topspin players. Comes in an air tight pack for ultimate freshness!

Reviews of DHS Hurricane 3 Neo (191)
Ratings for 2.15mm. Incredible value, very popular for a reason. Very good for powerful loops. Short game is excellent.
A really great rubber for intermediate and league players. It is VERY tacky so you can produce a lot of spin, especially on forehand loops and spinny serves. On backhand shots i find it is a little slower but you get great control.
HN3 is fast however there are definitely faster (more expensive) rubbers out there
I agree with the Gears rating as you can play very short, slow serves and chops easily. but you can open up with rapid loops as well. Overall i believe speed and control are brilliant but spin outperforms both.
This is the first DHS rubber I have ever tried and it blew me away. At first getting shots on the table felt strange and the rubber felt much too slow. I hated the rubber until i started playing more loops and spinny shots, once i started looping with the rubber it felt like a completly different rubber. every shot I made even if i made a mistake would drop on to the table. I would highly recommend this rubber.
Dead cheap when compared to BTY rubbers.demands very high physical strength.
The shots dont get out of the table hence very high safety margin but if u dont put effort ball will be only in ur court.
Mark V + Higher spin+ Greater effort - light less control = DHS NEO Hurricane
To the people writing it is slow, they must have wrong technique. If you swing fast, you hit fast. If you swing slow, you hit slow.
For spinning it's a fantastic rubber, but I can also easily push, block or smash. I always played with tensors but this is much better for me. Absolutely love it. Raw input is raw output. You can pretty much do everything with this rubber.
Good attacking rubber on medium hard blade. Need more brush and movement to create great arc. Quite bouncy on blocking, so we need to play with descent angle. Overall, it's a consistent attacking rubber with good speed, descent spin, and adequate control.
Tremendous amount of spin..forgiving for a chinese rubber..sponge is dead hard as rock if (unboosted)..topsheet is so so..control is good..just tacky..the provincial is way more better than commercial

In the short time I've been playing tennis I've tried a lot of different rubbers but this just feels right. The tackiness really helps on the service and developing feeling when looping or brushing. The hardness really forces you use proper technique. This is not a forgiving rubber in serve receives but because of that, I feel like I've grown a lot as a player and I have this rubber to thank.
Other forehand rubbers I've used: Tibhar MX-P (way to fast and soft), DHS Gold Arc 5 ( really good but lacks feeling), DHS Skyline 3 (close but too soft. Drives were lacking speed).
This is such a great FH rubber, it is fast, spiny and good control. But, if you want to maximize this rubber, you will need time to copy the Chinese player stroke.
Update: after played several months, I have corrected the throw angle, tackiness, speed, spin, and control. Overall this rubber is absolutely for topspin players, brush the ball all the way :D but don't forget to clean it up, otherwise, this rubber will underperform. Some players love to boost this rubbers, I will try to boost this rubbers and will update soon.
So I don't have much funds to test multiple samples so I'm gonna write my very first and last impression since at this moment I've played only one single time.
In my case when you put the film off before playing it's some strange spots after it. OK, they get away after few hours of playing and constant breathing on the rubber.
As I could expect, tackiness was not as good as I'd like. However general impression on this rubber in pair with nice light Palio CAT blade is just great! It's pretty linear, not that speedy => amazing control! And pretty light of course. The red one is not much different from the black one in terms of tackiness. I don't know why everyone usually complain about speed of this rubber. Speed is usually a lot easier to generate than spin. This rubber is good for me! I don't know about national and provincial versions but I don't even want to since I'm OK with this one. A nice linear set with the emphasis on spin. Just amazing!
UPD: seems like it's oversensitive to temperature. Behaves strange if not brushing constantly with your palm when cold, always condensates.
UPD2: OK, it doesn't condensate as much as I thought, but that's my sweat. Too much breathing on it inhibits it's tackiness and you have no other way but go and clean it up. It never happened to grippy rubbers. After playing it almost a year the tackiness still there but not every ball tacks to it. That's kind of weird. Although I noticed that glossy balls tack better, and most of the balls become glossy after playing with them for some time. At least here some win.
Beautiful rubber, easy to lift backspin, high spin, very aggressive short services, quite control, heavy, hard even with black and tuned 39 degrees, slow, works better in soft but fast blades, demands too much energy and physical preparation, if you want to generate power you must be very strong otherwise it is not recommended for you.very difficult to use, there are better Chinese rubbers for FH, big dipper, 729 battle 2, gold arc5
Most efficient forehand rubber, cheap and effective. Grip is excellent, speed is ok. Its tackiness can be used in light loop and initial opening, while in fast counter loop, the speed produced is still excellent.
Modern Chinese rubber for variable attackers. It excels in continuous loop from mid distance with varying arc due to high throw topsheet and low throw sponge. Can do everything, spins well on most shots, but best on power loops. However, I find control to be lacking. It is not easy to properly judge swinging speed and topsheet to sponge engagement ratio when making the desired stroke. Neither intuitive nor easily adaptable for me, so I don't use it.
Pair it with at least medium stiff and medium hard blades or you control will suffer even more.
EDIT: So much better on medium hard stiff blade, high throw balances low throw of blade and control becomes intuitive. Great rubber, boosted 39 deg is very suitable for me.
I usually play with regular Hurricane 3, but decided to try the neo version because many people say it's better then regular H3. IMHO, there is no significant differences between H3 neo and regular H3. There are a few differences, but they are not instantly noticeable.
As the manufacturer claims, H3 neo has softer sponge with more catapult effect, which should increase speed and control. However, the tacky topsheet kind of nullify the catapult effect, so the improvement on speed is only marginal. The softer/elastic sponge and tacky topsheet allow for longer dwell time and better control, than regular H3. Finally, H3 neo also has slightly higher throw angle than H3. Again, this is due to the more elastic and more dynamic nature of the neo sponge. Better control and slightly higher throw angle are the reasons why most people agree that H3 neo is easier to play with than regular H3.
Overall, this is a very good rubber if you like tacky Chinese rubber. I would rate this rubber 9 out of 10. If you tried H3 and think it's too hard to control, H3 neo might be better for you. But since I'm already used to H3, I have no reason to switch to H3 neo, given that both rubbers have almost identical speed and spin. I kind of prefer the lower throw angle of H3 anyway.
The best value out of any rubber you could buy. I've used several rubbers for FH (H3 Provincial, H8 Hard, Genesis M...) This one has by far the longest durability out of all of them. After a year of play, it still has the catapult effect you can achieve by brushing the ball with proper technique. Definitely will buy this again. Spin wise it is what you expect from a chinese rubber. Speed is good, but not MX-P or Tenergy 05 fast.
If I had to rank,
Speed .... MX-P> Tenergy 05> H3 Provincial> H8=H3 NEO
Spin ..... H3 Provincial = H8 > H3 NEO > Tenergy 05 > MX-P
Here are my first impressions:
First thing I noticed was the packaging was made of very cheap-looking paper, the first time I've seen a rubber not encased in hard paper. Also the serial number couldn't be found anywhere on the internet (fake alert?)
Out of the packaging the rubber had VERY little tackiness. Something that schoked me. H3 NEO is known for tackiness!
I glued onto a Donic Persson Exclusive OFF, and to be honest wasn't impressed with what the rubber had to offer.
H3 NEO is a spin rubber, yet it produced VERY little spin, but was surprisingly fast! On the looping and blocking side the ball seemed to rocket off my racket, but with very little spin to my surprise.
They say this rubber needs a 'breaking in', and I've only used it in one session. I will wait to see how it performs after boosting too.
