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.

Reviews of DHS Hurricane 3 Provincial - Blue Sponge (14)
Boosted with two layers falco, weight is 45 grams which is surprising. As others have said, the rubber is quite non linear on your strokes and can cause one to overshoot or clip the net. Once boosted, a bit easier to open up and serves are even spinnier and have more dwell time for pushing and looping. Countering has been shining through now that I have more dwell time.
Gears seem to be lacking a little bit for a Chinese rubbber in my opinion due to the hardness and tackiness more than one may expect.
Overall, its a completely different animal to the original one because it can do it all but you have to do all the things and there is no in between on strokes or this rubber will fail you.
The sponge is very hard, as you know from the original hurricane 3 orange sponge.
Blue sponge is more of a spring sponge it is softer but it can eat more glue and booster.
If you boost the rubber to its potential, it is VERY GOOD. (200% Better than the commercial one I would say)
However, for a beginner, the commercial one should be Enough for you!
It's also faster and has lower throw, resulting in less control.
That's about it. Performance is very similar. IMO, orange sponge is better at low power close to table while blue sponge excels more at counterloops from mid distance.
Tuning is recommended, to draw out the better potential of bs, else low gear is severely lacking.
OS commercial is 85% as good (for advanced players!), whether that justifies 3x price, you be the judge.
If your control and technique isn't advanced, stick with OS.
