Reviews of Nittaku Hurricane Pro 3 Turbo - Blue Sponge (9)

I'll compare this rubber in max thickness of 2.0 mm to the DHS Hurricane 3 Neo Provincial 40 degrees. Actually, the difference is valid for non-Neo versions, National versions and 41 degree as well.

The major differences are:
1. Sponge hardness. Nittaku version is waaay softer than the H3. Of course, after a short 5 hour break in;
2. Speed. Nittaku version is significantly faster than the H3 (including the boosted H3 versions).

These two differences make Nittaku unsuitable for powerlooping or for finishing topspins, especially when used on a hard blade. Hard strokes easily squeeze the sponge and the blade wood kcks in, and what is intended to be a loop becomes more of a flat hit. I simply have no control in these elements and my loops go either too long or into the net.

Fortunately, I find it to be an excellent rubber for the backhand side, due to a very good tackiness and spin (allows lifting backspins) and good speed when I need it: it is much slower than, say, Tenergy 5, in the passive game and fast on more active counter-spins. In addition, it has a good block and I am able to counter-spin with a typical tacky rubber spin, and to hard-block with almost no spin, as if I was using a medium or a soft-ish euro/jap rubber, like Tenergy 05 FX.

Overall, I do not recommend it for the forehand, but I do recommend it for the backhand.

BTW, The cut sheet (to a size of a typical Butterfly blade like Viscaria) weighs 53 grams, opposed to 45 - 49 grams for various versions (including boosted and unboosted) of DHS Hurricane 3.

A very hard, tacky rubber that is extremely spinny. Best for players familiar with Chinese rubbers as much of the technique required to loop the ball involves brushing the ball to allow the tacky top-sheet grip the ball. This rubber is HEAVY and is great for those looking to add weight to their racket. I just bought another sheet (have used the first sheet for over a year) to go with my new Nittaku Acoustic Carbon. This rubber is definitely best used for the forehand, as it isn't the fastest of rubbers and requires the power of the forehand to impart the speed and spin for a good power loop.

I wait too long to try this rubber, should have tried it before. What a great rubber it is! But keep in mind it is a 100% chinese-type rubber. There is no tension in sponge, no catapult on impact, no easy power when looping. That said, the NHP3TB is faster then regular Hurricane 3 Neo, both unglued. And way heavier and harder. A friend of mine said it reminds old Tackifire Special, the hardest rubber ever released. So it does not go well with every blade. Stiff carbon blades are not the best match for it, it must be a slightly flexible blade. For example, I glued it on a Zhang Jike ZLC, the setup was like a brick, very hard to control and to input spin to the ball. So, dont even think about Primorac Carbon or Ovtcharov Carbospeed if you want to try this rubber. Ok, later I changed it to a Timo Boll ALC and it became much easier (and fun) to play. With a setup like this the Turbo Blue shines. Opening topspins go with ease and loops are very fast. When loops are properly executed ball bounces very low after touching the table. You dont get this kind of shot with any ESN rubber, only with chinese ones. As said before, this rubber is heavy and requires a full arm swing to generate speed. But if you can deal with it the reward is huge and will put a smile on your face. I give it a 9/10 due to the insane weight, probably the heaviest rubber Ive tried so far, and the price, it is almost twice the price of regular Hurricane 3 Neo.

Nittaku Hurricane Pro 3 Blue sponge is a very high quality rubber that features spin and many gears typical of a Chinese rubber. This rubber is very hard and needs to be boosted with 3-4 thin layers before the elasticity of the sponge comes out - otherwise it feels like hitting with glass. This rubber is also extremely heavy. There was a 13 gram difference between H3 2.15mm Neo Provincial 39 degrees and NH3TB 2.0mm cut to a DHS HL3. This rubber is great for serve receive and looping and generates a tremendous amount of spin - more than Tenergy. This rubber has a very pronounced kick off the table when looping and generates a trajectory this is difficult to play against. This rubber requires full commitment to the shot. Due to it's hardness it is very unforgiving and it will immediately let you know you did something wrong. Given the hardness this rubber it provides a lot of power but will only give you that power if you generate it. This rubber will do what you tell it to do as long as you do it right and it will reward you with shots that are very difficult for opponents to deal with.
