DHS Hurricane Long 5 Review


The blade from the greatest of all time.

DHS Hurricane Long 5,  Ma Long’s weapon, is one of the best blades made by DHS(Double Happiness).

The current choice of World and Olympic champion – Ma Long from China.

DHS Hurricane Long 5 is a 7-ply attacking blade, with the ALC carbon layer closer to the core.

The blade is composed of the following layers, Limba – Limba – ALC – Ayous – ALC – Limba – Limba.

The blade thickness is ~ 5.9 mm,  similar to many popular blades.

The throw is medium, so the blade will match most rubbers depending on your style.

The limba outer layer gives it a perfect dwell time and spin. It is very easy to control and is very stable as you play with more power.

There are some positive vibrations, enough to get good feedback from your shot.

DHS Hurricane Long 5 have absolute control in small touches and wood feel.

Forehand:

  •  Huge sweet spot
  •  Very easy to impart spin
  • Produce extremely low arc, which gives you incredible shot
  • Can easily loop kill a no spin incoming ball

Backhand:

  • Excellent for blocking
  • The backhand loop gives you a lot of spin and low arc
  • Punch block gives you a perfect feeling.

The blade quality is very high, the finish is excellent and it comes in a very nice box, with an individual blade ID card with dimensions, weight, thickness, and serial number.

This is one of the “secrets” of Ma Long blade.
He didn’t go for power, he wants a blade with more control, slower speed, better short game, and more safety.

It feels like a 5ply blade, imagine this blade + Chinese tacky rubbers on a forehand side. The control of his paddle must be extraordinary.

This is what exactly DHS Hurricane Long 5 is.

If you’re a looper like Ma Long then this is the best blade for you.
