Recently I got a Hurricane 3 rubber which my dad says is very high quality. The rubber seems to stick to the ball a lot and the spin and speed seem to be inferior to my old donic baracuda rubber. Will the hurricane rubber eventually stop getting sticky or is it supposed to be sticky

Hi David,

The stickiness will decrease slightly with use.  The spin is a little different feel than a less sticky rubber.

Hi David. Barracuda is a pretty spinney rubber by all accounts but H3 definitely should at least match or exceed it. However, Barracuda is a relatively non-tacky rubber while H3 is pretty tacky.  Generally the tacky rubbers like H3 need greater use of the wrist to extract their spin potential.  Playing with the same stroke you used for the Barracuda rubber may limit how much spin you can generate with the H3.  Try adding some fast wrist action through the contact zone and see if that improves the spin.

Good luck

thanks but whenever I snap my wrist I actually feel a snap

Then I suspect the H3 isn't the rubber for you.  Look for a high spin rubber with a low tackiness rating instead. Cheers.
