I know Nittaku sponge is made in Japan but in terms of playing characteristic and topsheet, what is the difference? The packaging design is the same except for the logo and the price of course :?:

I used H3, H2 regularly. I tried Nitt H3 once. I did not like it. Softer sponge and topsheet was less sticky. But if you play Japanese or Euro rubbers and want to try it, it might be easier to adapt than real H3.

Noodle bowl in China is $1 as Japanese bowl is $10.
Nitt quality might be better too. But both rubber have some difference.

Haha wow....or that's what they WANT you to think. But perhaps the nittaku line has more consistency than the infamous Hurricane series'?

So with a softer sponge, Nittaku Hurricane 3 should've played like Hurricane 3 Neo :D

I played the Nittaku H3 NEO now for a while and I like it a lot. But: sometimes it could be more cripsy, espallially on flat hits and blocks.
The topsheet seems to be the same as the provicials, thats what I learned from this thread.
But what about the sponges?
Is a 39 provincial harder/crispier than the Nittaku (on these ones you cannot choose)? Or should I maybe try a 40 provincial?
