Where to buy real Double Happiness DHS products

In the previous article, we have talked about the National version of Hurricane 3. I recommend you just buy a normal version, which is much cheaper. Today, I will share with you my experiences of buying real and legit Double Happiness products.



There are many fake DHS products

But a problem with Chinese rubbers is that there are a lot of fakes, not saying that all of them are bad, but sometimes you have to be lucky when you purchase. Personally, you can use Lining’s official store to buy some DHS rubbers but you could try different brands also.

There are many fake DHS products that are fabricated in China. These fake items are then published on Taobao, Aliexpress at a very cheap price. Many online table tennis shops import Chinese products from these platforms.

If you want to buy a real DHS Hurricane rubber, then I recommend you to contact a friend who can travel to China.



Where to buy DHS Hurricane 3?

You have 3 options to buy Chinese table tennis rubbers:

  1. Buy on the local retailer (mostly shop in China, Hong Kong), or international retailer (online shop Worldwide). However, buying in these online shops, the quality of rubbers varies from batch to batch. And sometimes, you can get the fake rubbers. Because some retailer buys cheap DHS rubbers from Taobao. Some local shops in Mainland China do not have an “online shop”. So some DHS versions are only available for Chinese, or for someone who can travel to China.
  2. Buy on the Official shop of Double Happiness. But unfortunately, the Online is shop is under construction, and the Shipping information is not clear. (Read below).
  3. Go to the international marketplace (like Amazon, eBay, or Aliexpress). And choose the DHS shop page. I think this is the safest way to buy DHS rubber. As there is only one DHS shop that is verified on these platforms. Buying on these platforms will reduce the risk of buying fake products. Some platform also offers free shipping to the US, the European countries (France, England, Spain, Germany, etc). The main advantage of buying on these platforms is: You can read the feedback (with photos) from many buyers around the world.

Here are the links to the DHS Shop on these platforms. So you can go to your familiar marketplace:


Official DHS Online shop

Of course, if you want to buy a real, legit product, you should go to the Official Double Happiness shop. However, there is so many version of the DHS Online shop. Which one is real? And do they ship worldwide? I have contacted DHS Sale online about this, but until now, I got no answer.

Official Store for Hurricane 3 National Blue Sponge

So where is a good place to buy good quality Hurricane 3 Blue sponge? I would say, you should say only in the official store in Shanghai and Beijing. Everything below 80 Dollars is fake.

Hurricane 3 Neo blue sponge is a Chinese national team rubber. They don’t sell it outside. So, you get a lot of fake products normally. You can get the provincial blue sponge though. Else, better go for the commercial orange sponge and use a good booster.

Here is the Beijing official DHS store opposite the China National Ping Pang Training Center.

Buy Hurricane 3 on Aliexpress

So it depends on you to choose the shop. Many customers in China have shopped in the local shop, or they go to Aliexpress. In general, the price on Aliexpress is cheaper than on Western retailers’ shops. Western retailers have imported the products from China, and by adding the tax, the price is higher.

The advantage of Aliexpress is, they can ship Worldwide. And sometimes I get free shipping.

Asking a friends

If you want to buy real products, I recommend you ask a friend who buys in a real shop in China. Here is Jonathan. He travels a lot.

He has informed me much information about the DHS products, and also the price of these products. The problem is, these products are not widely seen outside of China.
