Hello folks,

to my surprise, I couldn't find any reviews for Jupiter 3 Asia or Euro on the forum, therefore I can contribute with my brief review of Asia-version, 39 deg, on a blade with thick Hinoki top ply (Zetro Quad.)

Out of the package, it was very slightly domed, so it's obviously been factory-boosted a bit. The top sheet is VERY tacky, on a level equal or very close to a regular Battle II I once had.

Before I began trying the rubber out, I expected it to be pretty dead even though the blade adds some significant bounce to rubbers, but it wasn't like that. The tack indeed helps with short game, otherwise there's a surprising catapult effect there, and overall the rubber is really fast! 

The behavior resembles very much these modern hybrid rubbers. I used Golden Tango PS and Rakza Z on this blade, and I can say this one is faster than both, even faster  that the boosted GT PS, although it appears tome that it is easier to handle than both rubbers in comparison. The way it behaves resembles
the Joola rubber more as it has some typical Chinese traits (brushing the ball adds speed although direct hit impact speed is also high; different trajectory when brushing), and the ball trajectory when not brushing is somewhere between the mentioned rubbers, while the brushing trajectory gets closer to Rakza Z (significantly higher and shorter trajectory than of GT PS,  while increase in spin appears to also make the ball dip suddenly in the final part of its flight.) Brushing is easier to do in comparison due to the strong topsheet stickiness. Mechanical spin seems to be decent, but the spin from brushing is heavy! If you manage to get a good brushing contact and solid motion, I dare to say it tops the spin of compared rubbers by a significant amount.

Another comparison to mention is with Jupiter 2 rubbers. I had a moderately boosted 38-deg version on this blade, and it was pretty different from J3. Definitely slower, a very pleasant, linear response, topspin ball trajectory low but very safe thanks to a sudden ball dip at the end of opponent's side of the table. I didn't feel much dwell, which could be caused by a pretty thin layer of a relatively low-viscosity glue, althought the rubber sheet wasn't very tacky compared to J3, too (moreover, stickiness seemed to gradually disappear despite regular cleaning.) For that reason it was very difficult to brush the ball well and add some rotation. Without brushing, there was very little spin; brushing literally solved the rotation issue but, again, it was difficult to achieve it wit the bounce that Zetro Quad produces. The best trait of this rubber was its specific, pleasant feel that somehow enables very, very high amount of control.

Jupiter 3 Asia 39 is definitely much tackier than J2 38, while cleaning preserves it, it doesn't seem to go away. The rubber definitely isn't linear as it's comparison, but it isn't really difficult to control. It is much faster and it is much closer to modern hybrids. In short game, the two rubbers were more or less equal in the control aspect. J3 Asia appears much spinnier and also easier to produce spin on most types of strokes.

I have also some experience with Jupiter 2 in 39 deg, although not on the same kind of blade. It was much tackier than 38 deg but the tackiness was wearing off very quickly and then the topsheet just lacked grip.. the feel was different, the response much less linear, perhaps similar to J3, which, however, appears to be just better.

Yinhe Jupiter 3 Asia seems to be a big improvement over  Jupiter 2, and it can actually compete with and perhaps even outperform some of the latest generation non-Chinese hybrids. A very pleasant surprise to me.




Would someone like to share their experience with Jupiter 3 Euro rubbers?

i've tried a 38 deg version, red color. Come with much less tack than the black in 38 deg. And, to my disappointment, the tack wears off quickly, the some way it always did with Jupiter 2 I had before. Slight tack or no tack left, the top sheet is still grippy but it also appears to be very hard as it takes good effort to dig I to it so you can actually loop consistently - at least in a blade like Zetro Quad. Hence, always in position, solid brushing  stroke or really powerful fast 'Euro'-style looping stroke, or the ball shoots off low and long - in the net or off the table.  It's sad because 39 deg version, which is really sticky, works definitely better. Yes, I know it was not meant to be a bouncy 'Euro'-style alternative but even J 2 worked better. It is possible, though, that this  J 3 will be just fine, even great on blades with a hard upper ply.
