Wondering what Chinese rubbers might be available in 36 degrees or under on the Chinese scale.

Palio CJ8000 and Galaxy Mars II are a couple I know of.

Are you saying they are soft or that they are 36 degrees and under. Agree they are softer than many but not so sure that 2008XP or XP Pro would be that soft.

I think Globe 999 and 999t fit that range too, maybe harder by 2 degrees.

A softer one I can confirm is "Globe Taiphoon Gold" but it's a piece of sht.
The one I had bubbled after a few hits.

Okay, I'll take those back since none of them have real indication of their degrees...

CJ8000, Yasaka ZAP. You do know what I think of these rubbers, though... :lol: I did try the ultra soft ZAP, didn't like it that much.

This one:

33-35 degree sponge. I don't think LKT Pro XP/XT or Mercury II Soft are anywhere near that - probably 38 or 39 degrees at the softest. 37 at a pinch. Pro XP/XT ARE slow, though.

I agree Iskandar, I don't think they are that soft.

Compared to H3 39 degrees the three I mentioned are definitely way softer. Since I've been using H3 for quite some time, I automatically comparing them with H3. And for me the three I mentioned earlier are not just a degree or two softer than H3 39 in DHS scale.

So, I take them back.

If only going by the written degree indication, dhs h3-50, tg3-60, tin arc 5 are available in 35 degree.

I do remember, on the DHS web site a couple years ago, that Tin Arc and one or two of the other rubbers (Dipper, I think, was one) had way softer sponges than H3. In the 34-36 range. But then Tin Arc isn't a "Chinese rubber" in that sense. These pages seem to be gone, DHS has apparently (for retail rubbers at least) abandoned degrees and are now using descriptors (medium-soft, medium, medium-hard, etc.).

DHS has been doing the degree in numbers for local market since a long time ago. I've been buying since 2003/2004 with degree in numbers (39-41). And in recent years they comes with softer 35 and 37 for some versions.
