This is the 47.5 degree sponge version of the DHS GoldArc 8.
The GoldArc 8 has legendary elasticity and a high amount of grip. This rubber employs its sturdy pimple geometry to maximize its elasticity. The pimples used are very large to increase the power produced from the mid-distance. The rubber gets excellent feedback and a clear sound upon contact with the ball, providing the player with much confidence in his shots. The Goldarc 8 is suitable for both the forehand and backhand of a blade. The Goldarc 8 was worked on by the DHS development center, German rubber experts, and multiple-time world champions, Wang Liqin, and Ma Long, to create the perfect highly elastic, non-tacky rubber.
The rubber surface of GOLDARC 8 is highly elastic just like a fully bent bow, which can easily create strong friction. This smooth surface rubber with underlying intensive big-pimple structure gives the rubber great elasticity and off-court power. The player can enjoy the instant feeling of striking with minimal effort and will appreciate the crisp hitting sound.
GOLDARC 8 has outstanding performance in strength and speed, bringing an overwhelming pressure to the opponent in full court. This rubber is suitable for both forehand and backhand.
GOLDARC 8, the highly elastic non-sticky rubber, was developed by the DHS R&D center and German rubber-making expers with the consultation of World Champion Wang Liqin.
