This Stiga Rosewood XO blade with a flared Legend handle is assembled with Donic Baracuda 2.0 red and Donic Vario Big Slam 2.0 black rubbers.
The blade: Stiga Rosewood XO: For the attack player with finesse! Built with exclusive Rosewood outer veneers that have been aged and seasoned since the first introduction of Rosewood NCT blades in 2008. The extraordinary high quality wood with its beautiful pattern and excellent construction provides outstanding feeling and touch with a smooth sound, for a performance that is equal to its great beauty.
Red rubber: Formula Donic Baracuda rubber with built-in speed glue effect produces fantastic spin. The ball leaves the blade in a noticeably higher arc, giving considerably more spin. The increased rotation of the ball stabilizes the shot and increases speed. Shot accuracy is visibly improved even for top players. Baracuda offers that extra margin of safety and touch even in the tightest situation. In addition, Baracuda's top rubber surface has been newly constructed to be more durable than similar rubbers, resulting in more playing hours with a surface that is less prone to damage.
Black rubber: The first Vario rubber to be made in Germany, Donic Vario Big Slam includes the world famous Formula Donic technology with built in speed glue effect. Donic's rubber experts developed this soft Vario rubber sheet and adjusted its properties to match the present high demands of the sport. The results take you to a whole new playing level! Due to its extremely soft 35 degree sponge, you get perfect feeling on the blade. Vario Big Slam is especially suitable for control and all round players with a tendency to an offensive game. It is also the ideal rubber for spin and rotation players who prefer soft rubbers and like to hear a fantastic sound when hitting the ball.
