Our notes:
• Uncut weight is approx. 63 grams
• Very tacky topsheet similar to both Hurricane 3 and Haifu Whale 2 rubbers. Topsheet is softer than Hurricane 3 on top of a hard and lively sponge.
• Faster than the commercial DHS Hurricane 3 with the same level of spin.
• For most Chinese rubbers, the black one is the tackier one and the red is the harder one. In the case of the National Target rubber, the red one is tackier and slower. The red version can be a good chopping rubber and is a very spinny rubber. The black version can be a modern attacking forehand rubber because it is less tackier and faster. It feels like a euro-chinese rubber hybrid rubber. Both are factory-tuned but the tackiness of the red version makes it slower and grips the ball more so it is ideal for chopping. The red version has high arc while the black version has medium arc. Uncut weight is 63 grams.

As the upgraded version of model Target, the Target National is a better choice for 40+ new plastic ball. Thanks to the advanced production technique, covering the unsmooth topsheet with ultrathin sticky rubber film, which helps to keep both high elastic performance and good spin effect; combining with cake sponge, offering sustained and strong power. The Target National has already been selected by many professional players all over the world.

 External Review for Sanwei Target National on January 2, 2018
*Disclaimer* not a pro and do not possess overwhelming experience. I have been using the Target National for about six months on a Andro CSV+ (this is the blade I started out with and after almost two years I am upgrading to an Offensive blade). I feel like I can do anything I want with these rubbers. loop, flick, push, block, drive, and smash and well done too. Only problem I have is sometimes going over the table sightly (that is the frustrating part) however, that may be operator error. Although the surface marrs easily it does not seem to affect the performance. These rubbers are very durable and lasts forever it seems. I think I am going to buy a new pair to go with my new offensive blade.

As a low level club player who prefers traditional chinese forehand rubber, i have been challenged by the classics like H3, always finding some variant like the Skyline series, or, when I am am playing smart, the Tinarcs. But that was before the plastic ball. STN is the best allround modern chinese classic. it has a tacky topsheet and a hard sponge, but is fast enough and dynamic with the plastic balls. it still does all of the things that a classic chinese sheet will do (block, chop, push, attack over the table) but adds a bit more punch on direct hitting and looping. occaisonal ball slips with a funny sound, but rare enough to be not a problem. topsheet will scuff easily and appear worn, but it plays well. this is the first non-boosted chinese forehand rubber i can use on my Yasaka Gatien Extra, and still feel like I have enough speed to end points.

After it breaks in, it is pretty remarkable. Feels like a chinese rubber for short game, and then has a fast low arc when attacking. Probably lacks some of the devastating spin of a boosted H3; but it is VERY good. Even turns a 5 ply limba ALL+ blade into something that you can end points with speed over the table.

I wanted to find a rubber that does not wear out in few months. I was playing with desto F3. And this rubber is by far more durable.

I have a quite strong forehand already and I was interested in trying a chinese style rubber to force my technique to evolve. It has the attribute of a chinese rubber in that the sheet is tacky and hard. At first, you really need to adapt a bit as top spins will only be consistent if your hip moves forward while your arm/leg/wrist gives spin. But then, the top spins get an incredible power, super low bounce and spin. I noticed also that the very first time of use the rubber is extremely hard and that tends to soften after 2-3 weeks playing it while your technique adapts in the meantime, which makes a bit more comfortable to play overall.

Blocking is generally easier as the rubber hardness and tackiness will absorb much of the speed. Actually, it gives the impression the rubber is quite slow. In the short game, the ball will not bounce off your paddle and you need to push a bit to be sure the ball does not land in the net. This rubber has actually lot of gears. If you attack or slap the ball, it'll go fast. After been used to my new set, I played with other players paddle using Tenergy 05 and I frankly do not see a difference in speed, but comparing with tensor(-like) rubbers: block is easier, attacks are somewhat spinnier, in fact, less efficient if you play with light top spin

I also tried a Hurricane 3 Neo in comparison. To me, it feels like you would get the same amount of spin as a H3Neo, but with more gears. So, it probably is closer to the H3 Provincial (which I briefly tried once), but that rubber has a much softer feeling.

Typical Chinese sticky/tacky rubber with lots of spin and speed. But rubber is very very heavy. More heavier than H3Neo or H3-50. Almost similar weight as G888! For Chinese rubber it is pretty fast. Topsheet is very fragile. Gets marking even from shirt or towel. Medium throw angle maybe a little bit high. So speed and throw-angle makes very difficult to block effectively, block return too easy to punish. High quality spin on serve, push, chop, flick, loop, drive and even smashing is easy.

Blade: Donic Ovcharov Carbospeed
This rubber is very fast, no questioning that here. Although I noticed that the throw angle of the ball when I hit the ball. It is hard to hit a looping shot without forcing the contact and motion. Plus touch play is a bit more difficult as compared to playing with the Rasant Turbo and Powergrip rubbers on my old Andro build. Definitely this is for the more offense, "I'm going to win the point as fast as I can" players.

I put this on a Stiga Offensive Classic WRB, the result is just what I wanted. A spin monster with amazing level of control. I had played for 9 months with Tenergy 25 bh, tenergy 64 fh, on an Adidas Hypertouch after returning to the game after 45 yrs, and although a good combination did not fit with my older body (70 yrs). Your Spin can get better with age, so I decided try this. I really recommend this if you want spin with control on a good offensive wooden racket.
Peace and Be Well

Played rubber 5 months. Blade: rosewood 5 nct.
Very sticky, slow and hard. This was the first 3 training. Then tack decreased, but increased speed and control. Now the tackiness was the same as DHS N3 NEO. National version is not a typical Chinese rubber like target provincial. It fast and sponge springy. Top sheet thick and hard. Softer and more elastic than DHS H3. This is not a tensor. Without booster rubber hard. A lot of speed and at the same time difficult to brush the ball. I use booster after month. It became easier to play.
I think that this rubber mostly for power loops then brushing vs block, vs loops. Not so good against underspin. This is closer to the traditional Chinese rubber then tensors and have a good speed. Also it is better to play with plastic ball.
