Chinese Rubbers are well-known for their tacky topsheet. I have a DHS Neo Hurricane 3 (Black) for my Forehand. Any tips on how to maintain its tackiness, cause it seems to wear off easily after being bought.

Hi Stan,

The only thing to do with them is to wipe them gently with some water when you are cleaning it.  That tacky surface is not as important as people think.  The rubber is still grippy even without that extreme tacky surface.

Thanks for the response. In addition, there was this other professional coach from a table tennis store I went to, who said that GEWO is also a pretty good brand of tacky/grippy rubbers, despite not being well-known. Is this true?

Yes Gewo is also a lower end Chinese rubber but the quality is fine to learn with.
