Our notes:
• Uncut weight is approximately 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 sheet is tackier and the red sheet is harder. 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 it is very spinny. The black version can be a modern attacking forehand rubber because it is faster and less tacky. It feels like a euro-chinese hybrid rubber. Both are factory-tuned, but the tackiness of the red version makes it slower and it grips the ball more, so it is ideal for chopping. The red version has a high arc while the black version has a medium arc.

As an upgraded version of the Target rubber, the Sanwei Target National is a better choice for the new 40+ plastic ball. Thanks to the advanced production technique of covering the textured topsheet with an ultra-thin sticky rubber film, this rubber demonstrates both highly elastic performance and good spin effect. Combining these attributes with the cake sponge, the Target National offers strong and sustained power. The Target National has already been selected by many professional players all over the world.

 External Review for Sanwei Target National on August 1, 2019
Are you searching for a boosted and a bit softer H3? Well look no more, because here is your lucky saviour the Sanwei Target National. Just to be clear I play with Euro/Jap attacking rubbers, so when judging speed I will compare it to euro rubbers. This is a slowish rubber, I could hit a loop with my full power and I was not able to do a longshot. It has a speed similar to a Bluefire M3. Which is not enough if you pair it with an OFF-/OFF blade. I noticed that my balls are not that spinny like with an M1 or a Palio AK47 RED or even an M3. Only fine brush loops gave huge spins, but there were not enough power in those shots. While playing with this rubber was very fun, it is very consistent, I was able to perform all my techniques I find it a bit lacking in aggressiveness. So if you are an all out cannon do not buy this. If you like to play with your spins and placements or if you are a hobby player I would recommend this. Very easy to use and also fun.

I have used both Sanwei Target National and Moon Pro for a few years. Both black forehand (medium sponge MP) and both max sponge. In my opinion MP has a slightly harder & better quality sponge and topsheet with slightly more speed and spin... STN has a little more control. MP comes factory boosted, STN is not. One nice feature of MP is the factory glue sheet that is already attached to the sponge, so you only need to apply glue the the blade not the sponge. MP boosts better than STN but the life of both can be extended by boosting. These rubbers give what you put in, so both speed and spin potential is brought out by the player. I have used both on double inverted attacking setup and long pips backhand defensive twiddling style setup. All stokes work well, forehand chop takes some work but can be highly effective. Both are excellent Chinese rubbers rubbers available for under $25usd.

Hey everybody. I have read all the comments about Sanwai Target National, before buying this product and I have to admit that I was very glad when I heard that that rubber is very sticky. I waited impatiently but after 30 minutes I was completely disappointed. Sticky effect disappeared TOTALY. Pay attention to those who buy and hope they will have a sticky rubber.

Solid modern Chinese off rubber for 40+ ball. Medium high throw angle, tacky and a bit on the heavy side. Soft rubber and medium hard sponge. Glued on a Sanwei A9 it's a looping machine. Easy to control. Normal sensitive for incoming spin. And at last you can produce heavy spin over and behind the table.

Review by brandonburtner (Verified Customer) for Sanwei Target National on July 30, 2018
This is the ultimate Chinese rubber. Hard, super fast, super spinny, and bizarrely affordable. If you are an aggressive player looking for a fast spinny rubber, look no further. Very low throw angle.

Very good well balanced modern Chinese rubber. Soft topsheet and medium hard rubber. In short to short and over the table easy to play. Good for first offensive strike. You can feel how the ball dips in the soft tacky rubbber and the speed of medium hard sponge. Good job Sanwei.

The rubber is similar to H8 away from the table. In short to short, chops, flicks and service the National Target works better. Good rubber. Keeps what advertising promises. Well done Sanwei.

I used this for about 6 months and love it. I can smash very good with control and the spin and the consistent feel it has when returning my opponent shots make me laugh when there expression changes on there face. For me this rubber is great. I've read all the reviews of the users on here and I think they maybe selling this rubber a little short. I love this rubber!

Review by zanelightning (Verified Customer) for Sanwei Target National on February 9, 2018
Very spinny. Serves can make people push balls of the long side of the table. Pushes can be extremely short at command, good touch. Very good at picking up backspin/chops. Can do extremely short backspin serves, forcing opponent to push. Great pick up for 3rd ball attacks. Extremely tacky, can lose tackiness during play but after cleaned, topsheet becomes tacky again. Topsheet is extremely durable, caught the rubber on a forehand loop on edge of table, did not tear or lose tackiness after cleaning. Mid to close reccomened, extra effort to punch ball,but it works, can do long distance looping as need.

 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.

 External Review for Sanwei Target National on December 23, 2017
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.

Review by icontek (Verified Customer) for Sanwei Target National on September 18, 2017
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.
