if you are using H3, you must need to boost. If not the sponge is too hard to do anything.
provincial version is 省套，national version is 国套。
you can get non counterfeit from reputable merchant like tenryu.com. i am quite confident the owner of tenryu knows their stuff.
national H3 is priced over 300+. and heavy maintenance and compare to tenergy they dont last under 1 year. The VOC booster will accumulate until the sponge is either expand too thick too heavy or top layer start to peel.
At forum19 there are a few players using chinese rubber boosting.
anyway bty Sriver voc glue is the most economic way if you want to try. Japan top layer rubber is more reliable and long lasting.
My personal advice dont even try chinese rubber, unless you die die must use tacky rubber.
BTY Sriver+ Speedglue is a legendary setup you can try, japanese topsheet is more reliable and long lasting.
Yeah ,BTY Sriver which is a good rubber before 40mm era and most common combination is any hinoki jpen + sriver. However ,sriver still perform well but can't compare to before 40mm era because BTY keep changing formula.Maybe bryce is a better substitution of sriver with hinoki jpen ,just maybe only,I can't say it confidently because never tried it before.
Actually there's impossible the national H3 matches what the market say that it's use by chinese national player. Truth is it's most likely a leftover from province level supplies. So dun get fool by sellers or even Dhs company. And I'm lazy to boost rubber every week so I don't use rubber that required boosting to get best performance.For chinese tacky rubber , u dun hv to try some expensive stuff when there are so many classic cheap chinese rubber like DHS pf4, globe 999, 729 FX. These are better than H3 when comes to price to value comparison and they are extremely durable .But one thing need to mention is these rubber os designed to match old chinese blade from 70s to 80s like dhs 032 so just be careful when u choose blade as their sponge not flexible and tgey are strictly designed to match chinese quick attack styles so they are less sensitive to spin and can easily loop any spin.But I barely touch smooth rubber so I don't really know any new rubber so for H3 I've been used for only 2 to3 times only
