Sanwei Target National

Save $9.96 (25%)

Select color/thickness:


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.

Reviews of Sanwei Target National (41)

The first impressions of my first day with Target National are that it is a very good rubber, with good speed, awesome spin on topspin and serves. The short game is somewhat worse than Hurricane. And topspin versus backspin isn't as easy as hurricane. i each that target provincial blue is better for topspin vs backspin, i am not sure.
But the truth is that when you hit hard the ball picks up more speed and a beastly rotation. It's more tackyness than hurricane. We will have to wait for the tacky to disappear a bit, possibly it will play better. Nice rubber.
I dont know about the throw angle.
Ohh, drives perfect, control, speed and spin.

It is a very stable rubber! I have used it on Viscaria and Flextra. It fits both carbon and all wood blades well. Shots are easy to land, well-paced amid a bit less spinny than Hurricane 3 Neo (H3N). The only drawback is that it is heavy! It comes in at 53g after cut which limits the choice of my backhand rubber. Otherwise, I prefer this rubber over H3N because of its speed and stability.

Red, Max on a Yinhe Mercury Y-13 blade. This is after one training session and match training for three hours. Very tacky rubber. The sponge feels very hard. STN is clearly heavier than DHS H3N and very much heavier than Big Dipper. Brush looping has not the same effect as with Yinhe Big Dipper or DHS Hurricane/Skyline NEO rubbers. Perhaps a bit nicer in the short play because of the harder sponge. I feel the throw is quite low as well, and the speed is not near the previous mentioned rubbers, so it makes playing away from the table quite difficult. Hopefully it'll break in in a couple of sessions. I'll be back with more info. Weight cut, Max: 56g

I've used the Hurricane 3 Neo, Hurricane 3 Neo Provincial, Hurricane 8, Nittaku Hurricane 3 Pro 3 Orange and a Yasaka Shining Dragon over the past few years. The Sanwei Target National is the rubber I prefer now. It's faster than the other Chinese rubbers without the need to boost. Throw angle is lower than the Hurricanes.
