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 (5)
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.
The rubber has a mid long dwell time, that makes a lot of spin and control, even using a stiff blade, therefore, this rubber fits more a looping playing style.
This rubber is a reasonably fast rubber, (for me as an offensive double player), i.e., to an extend a bit similar to Yasaka Pryde. It does enhance my long and fast no spin service and forehand top spin as well as your forehand back spin. Really good for push and not so well for hard push (returning left and right spins). I am happy with the overall performance of this rubber given the fact that the price is pretty reasonable (in comparison to Yasaka Pryde). The only problem that I have experience with this racket thus far is the fact it can't flick that well. Obviously, the rubber is not for the defender!
