Im gonna boost the heck out of it. someone needs to invent a rubber peening mallet for table tennis rubber break-in

most recently Ive been playing with Sanwei t88-ii on my forehand which is basically a $10 tenergy and coming back to the dead sponge is like a rude awakening. It takes some getting used to.

anyhow, the h3 is stewing in boost right now. Im going to do about 10 layers, wrap it in a trash bag for two days, and then try it out.

I'll report back if it plays better boosted

ok , so I boosted the heck out of hurricane 3 and can report some differences.

Im going to use hurricane 3 and super 999t on the same blade to do a better comparison. super 999t is $5 and hurricane 3 was $11, so not a big difference in price.

unboosted I have to say super 999t is better. they are both dead slow but the sponge on the super 999t has a better feel.

boosted they are very different. super 999t barely picks up speed, where hurricane 3 picks up a noticeable amount of speed and spin (but is still slow and non spinny compared to any European style rubber.

both place a great emphasis on correct stroke particulary on the forehad and are great for training, and both have a great short game and dead block

Even with a worn Evolution MXP, my backhand opening loops against underspin is a weapon, with the 999 it's an absolute dud.




if you are looking for a cheap spinny loopy back hand rubber,
try Sanwei t88-ii.

I bought it from my coach who is a 1900 player and won and under 1900 tournament and $150 with it. so he upgraded his racket and blade and I bought his old stuff. it plays like a 3 month old tenergy 05. and it costs $10 bucks

I will answer that on Tuesday. Ill put a red sheet on the backhand.

I played with the black sheet last night. I overboosted it a few days ago and then glued it on so it would say in a stretched condition for a day or two. Then I peeled it off, added one layer of boost only and glued it back on.

(Party!!!). I have used a lot of tacky Chinese rubbers. Boosted H3 may be the best. It has amazing feel. I was blocking for a 1900 player like it was nothing,and it lifts under spin almost effortlessly

Think of a very springy rubber... and then think of a complete opposite - that is it!

zero catapult would be like playing with a wood blade.

maximum catapult is a rubber where it feels like the tt ball is bouncing on a trampoline.

from what i see on my blade i conclude the following facts:

1- 999t has more obvious control than h8 and h3n
2-999t is a bit faster than h8 due to its softer sponge
3-999t is bouncy on my blade and this is due to the blade not the rubber itself my blade is very very bouncy and if u misread the incoming spin or misjudge your angle stroke u will be punished but still 999t less bouncy than h8 on my blade

4-its tack is a bit higher than h8 and its spin is a bit higher

5- the red rubber is softer than the black rubber

6- the weight of my blade while having 2 h8 was 215 gram now it is 195 gram so 999t is lighter than h8

that's my observation till now it is the 2nd day of practicing with it

very acute and accurate observations. I dont know what I was thinking when i thought h3 was better.
I played h3 back and fore on monday night, peeled both off and played super 999t backhand and forehand tuesday night( last night) so i could have a true back to back comparison.

I was lost but now Im found. boosted, super 999t is softer and has better feel, way more spin than h3, especially the red sheet, a little bit more lively than h3.
the only place where h3 wins is it blocks better. 

I found two important things that made me appreciate this rubber better(super 999t)

1. the red side is simply phenomenal. I had been using the black side for my forehand and that was a mistake. the red side is tackier, and the rubber swells more when boosted, and it is livelier. its almost sad that the black side doesnt play as well. on the forehand the red side is a beast.

2. this is a very low throw rubber. you have to think "aim high"  when lifting under spin or attacking.

3. this is a very low throw rubber. that bears repeating


4. finally, I found that this rubber plays best closer to the table.


so, for close to the table play, super 999t, especially the red side, is a beast. and it only cost $5.

my buddy and i switched rackets, and he has andro rasant on his forehand. way more expensive than super 999t. it was unboosted. boosted 999t has more spin than unboosted andro rasant

on my blade which i think is medium to med-high throw angle the 999t is not a low throw rubber at all except when lifting underspin and to overcome that u must brush looping the ball with the blade angle upwards otherwise into the net
other than lifting underspin it isnot  low throw rubber at all (on my blade)

away from the table it perform absolutely wonderful (and this is due to my blade also which have a huge power away from the table )

hi, it plays like most other tacky chinese rubbers unboosted.

ie, dead and very very low spin but a very high amount of control

I just got mine and put it on an old pre-assembled double fish blade I got a while back. Other than this paddle I have a Ma Lin Extra Offensive with Mark V on both sides. It was really fun to experiment with something different. I might start to experiment with some more Chinese rubbers. I like the lack of trampoline effect. It just seems to have a much more rational direct cause and effect when hitting the ball. This is coming from a relative noob, so take it for what it is worth. Still a long way to go on my TT journey. :)
Thanks!

The best value you can get in table tennis rubber. Tons of Spin, many gears, easy blocks and all that for 5-6$. on a faster all wood or carbon blade it has absolutely sufficient speed for mercyless attack. If you like Spin and Control without any trampoline effect in the sponge, try that Rubber! But Careful,I don´t talk about GLOBE 999T.

good catch. I wonder why they would do that.


funny enough is at a tournament this weekend I got to play a guy who had globe 999t on his blade. the tackiness was the same and the sponge had the same color. so I wouldn't be surprised if globe 999t and super 999t are the same thing. I'll have to order some globe 999t to compare.

it plays great on an all- blade. the first blade I put mine on was my grubba pro all-

man it had a ton of control especially because it was still super tacky.

only thing is when it comes time to attack, just know that you have to swing hard. REALLY HARD

Finally, I glued the rubber (put one very thin layer of booster on sponge, just in case) to my all+ blade, and had a hitting session with my hitting partner.

The rubber has enough speed and spin, not as much as H3 or TG3 though. However, men, I believe all of us shall have this rubber on one of our used blades, and we use it to have a 5 mins fh / bh warm up before training, tournament ... etc. Unlike tensor rubbers, this rubber will force you to have correct strokes and techniques. If your stroke is no good, the ball will hit under the net. No kidding LOL

lol. my thoughts exactly. even if not using this for tournament play its is definitely a great training rubber because correct form must be used.
