So it's my understanding there's several versions of Hurricane currently on the market. Different sponges,etc. I'm wanting the stickiest,tackiest topsheet version available. Any recommendations would be welcomed and helpful.

The original Hurricane was the stickiest in my experience.

Red hurricane 8 40 deg , with booster.

(black is sometimes too hard, sometimes too soft. in general has a  less consistent quality)

it's not the tackiest hurricane, but it's the only one that's fast and spinny at the same time (boosted).

fwiw - battle 2 is much much stickier out of the package than H8.  I just opened a sheet of each, 30 degree red.  New the H8 would hold a ball for 6 or 8 seconds.  Battle 2 I could bounce a ball on the table, put the bat above and it would stick to the bat.  Then it would stay stuck for 10 - 15 seconds.  

Not saying battle 2 plays better than H8, it's actually hard to use until that extreme stickiness wears off after a few sessions.  But since the OP asked for stickiest, tackiest topsheet ...

How about after a couple of months playing with it,do you think the Battle would still be tackier than the H8?

After a few months neither one would be very tacky at all when compared to new.  They still play very well, but the holding a ball in the air effect wears off quickly.
