TinArc 3's pimple structure is specially designed for buffering and absorbing energy. This makes the rubber perform excellent in ball control and creates varying spin close to the table and generates power from mid to far distance. TinArc 3 incorporates 'Dual-Extreme' technology in rubber and sponge and is preferred by top players who play with loop and control drives.

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 TinArc 3 - Mid-Hard (9)

Best Rpb rubber for my level this far. Next upgrade will be back to Goldarc 8 (or maybe even a yasaka rubber?). This rubber isnt tacky. Has a less dense sponge in colour to the GA8. Spin and speed quality is dependant on stroke quality/technique/personal strength (I hit hard naturally). Low trajectory, great spin and controllable speed. Isnt Wildly bouncy.. great blocking control. Even better Rpb loop for under spin. Personally and not generally,
Natural play qualities I look for in rubber. Can maintain pace from medium to far from table. Recommend for RPB.

Im still on the search for a rubber as light as a yasaka rubber like razka 7 or markvhps that has qualities of a TA3 or GA8

Forgot to mention:
Better to topspin when playing rpb close up to the table..if you flat hit it will overshoot table. Much Heavier rubber in comparison to yasaka. In comparison to Razka 7 (for most reviewer comparisons).. Razka 7 is better for blocking, is less sensitive to spin and touch, much more of a flat hitter rubber than TA3 (backhand flat/slap if your shake hander). I found Rpb under spin lift is easier with TA3. In saying that I could still perform almost same quality lifts and flicks with razka 7 with the difference being very minor.

This is an update to my previous review of this
rubber. The first 2 days of play the rubber was hard, but on the 3rd of play the rubber and sponge became medium. I have never experienced that with any other rubber. I preferred it medium because the rubber had more dwell time and more control.

Speed 8, spin 9, hardness - medium. Good control.
On the first day the rubber is hard. On the third day it softens down to medium.

The first day I played with this rubber it had good spin. The second day I played with it, all the grip was gone. It was as non grippy as smooth glass. It's a disappointment. I do not recommend it.

Right now I use this TA3 on my backhand. H 35, 2.0mm and black. I'm coming from using DHS Hurricane 8, H 39, 2.15mm, black. These rubbers are very different. The TA3 is much less spin sensitive, so it's a lot easier to return high spin serves and brush loops. It's very soft, so it's quite slow compared to the H8 (even if the H8 is a bit slow as well). TA3 doesn't "go" by itself. You'll have to work it good and make the full strokes to get the most out of it, otherwise the ball often goes in the net. Perhaps this is mainly the H 35 sponge being to slow and not so forgiving. On the other side, it's easy to block loops and place them well, and the pushing and short game is much easier to handle.

Now I've only played about 10 hours with my new setup, and if I have another feel in the future, I will change my review.

Blade: Friendship 729 L3 FL
FH: DHS Skyline TG2 NEO, H 39, 2.15mm
BH: DHS TinArc 3, H 35, 2.0mm

Update: Now I have tried the TA3 2.1mm H37 Red on my 729 V-6 blade. I't gives me a better feeling in my backhand. You don't have to put so much effort in your strikes to get the ball over the net. When I put it on forehand and test some brush loops, the feeling is good, but the ball always comes back. The spin and catapult effect isn't anything like Skyline/Hurricane NEO rubbers, so I will keep it on my backhand. Weight cut 2.1mm H37: 48-51g. 2.0mm H35: 46g
