Donic Baracuda Big Slam

Speed: 87
Spin: 95
Control: 71



...now even more vicious !
DONIC BARACUDA BIG SLAM rubber has even more sound and control due to the softer sponge. Built in speed glue effect produces fantastic spin.

With DONIC BARACUDA BIG SLAM the ball leaves the blade in a conspicuously higher arc, giving considerably more spin. The increased rotation of the ball stabilizes the flight and increases speed. The results are convincing after a few hours of training to become used to this modern rubber. Accuracy of placement is visibly improved even for top players.

DONIC BARACUDA BIG SLAM offers that extra margin of safety even in the tightest situation, and not only when engaged in a high risk top spin game.

DONIC BARACUDA BIG SLAM's top rubber surface has been newly constructed to minimize abrasion. The happy result: more playing hours with a surface that remains intact without noticeable abrasion.

I have the 2.0 version. It is very spinny, has a catapult effect as it holds the ball very well. It is medium hard. My loop was effective with this, not good if you try to hit flat. This rubber is good for players 1500 and above as the catapult effect would be hard to control for beginners. Howard E. Lee BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY

Good intermediate rubber

Purchased this rubber on my first combo paddle. it was my first custom built paddle. Im new to the modern paddles and all of the rubber choices. After playing with this rubber for a few months I have no complaints regarding its performance. Ive greatly improved all shots from loops to chops to pushes. The rubber provides considerable spin and isnt so fast that you loose control of your game. I do recommend it to the intermediate level player. I am disappointed with the fact that after only a few months of playing twice per week the red sheet has many chips and peels around the edge. I still recommend as it has helped me improve my game by a considerable amount. Id rate 5 stars if not for the peeling around the edge.


all round champ

Really can find no shortage on this rubber, good spin, good control, enough power… however nothing can surprise me, except its control. I feel so much more confident to attack short return than using other rubbers. If you has no problem to use soft sponge, it is worth to give it a try.

Excellent spin, good speed and control, but lacks durability

Got the max sponge in black. My last rubber was max Tibhar Genius Sound. From the first day I loved this rubber! It really grabs the ball and has tons of spin. Just the right amount of speed to be aggressive but still maintaining control. I play 1-2 hours a day 5 days a week and after six weeks this rubber is already starting to show noticeable signs of wear, especially around the edges. Would rate 5 stars if it was more durable.
