Reviews of Donic Acuda S1 Turbo (28)
Just started using this after Tibhar evolution mxp firstly I found it a bit more tacky than I expected almost like Chinese rubber, my sheet is red with max sponge rubber seemed to look quite shiny but maybe this goes after a while Im using it on a fast stiff blade (yinhe T11+ after a couple of hours use I really like it have to use more effort than mxp but was finding it easier to hit harder without over hitting and ball going long occasionally with this donic rubber seemed almost hard to miss table ,would say from first impressions I prefer this to MXP

Speed is nothing without spin. Remember that
Very good! Has it all. Got a couple of these from Jrgen Persson, that plays in my club, and i got very impressed, so bought it myself. That was like 5 years ago.
Para mi esta goma es exelente con buena velocidad y efecto ideal para lanzar unos topspin super veloces!!
Been using this on FH of 5-ply OFF- all wood blade for about 1 year. Sponge is hard enough that I cannot bottom it out no matter how much I turn my body. It always has additional power/spin available. At the same time though, I can still compress the sponge even when my contact or position isn't ideal. Control is excellent for something this fast. It felt very comfortable immediately.
The biggest aspect I noticed is that it's easy to get my loops deep onto the table and low over the net with lots of speed. I flipped my racket around and tried it on my BH and was surprised that it worked so well for me. I normally use slower/softer stuff on my BH as it's not a strength in my game. Top-spinning sound is very loud and satisfying.
Highly recommended to all attackers for FH or BH. Only drawback is that the durability isn't the best. It's not bad, but after 40-80 hours of use I started to notice a significant decrease in performance. Considering you can get this for about $40 a sheet, it's easy to recommend.
I bought this rubber as my FH for Stiga Classic Carbon (Chinese Penholder) and have to agree with some of the claims made by the manufacture, in the sense that the rubber will turbo your smash. I have used many kinds of rubber like Yasaka Pryde, Tibhar 1Q, DHS Tin Arc, Butterfly Sriver EL, Butterfly Bryce in my search to really boost my attacking play. I found this one is the coolest for smashing.
I agree that at least an intermediate level is required for handling of this rubber as it's quite fast but still I don't understand all the fuss about the poor "control" on this rubber. I paired it with nittaku septear and the control is amazing, compared to my previous rubber, nimbus soft, which had very poor control and consistency on the same blade. Speed and spin are good. The weight is a problem though. Nimbus soft was very light but this one is too heavy in comparison. I'm not sure about the durability yet as it's only been two weeks with this rubber on my blade. Overall, an excellent rubber. I think this rubber will work well with other medium to medium hard and flex blades like acoustic, violin, virtuoso
Great rubber, not for beginners!
Great speed, medium spin, and low control
Just changed to it from a simple S1 MAX on FH. I use it on a Timo Boll Forte in MAX thickness. I'm playing it for only 2 days. It feels a little bit heavier than S1. It's faster, spinnier and a little bit more controlable. The arcs are just crazy, almost every loop i make passes over the net and hits the table. I hope it will have the same good durability as the original S1.
donic s1 turbo is very hard to handle but once u get it down, it is really good. really fun to use. i prefer this over the tenergy rubber. i use this for forehand
so far this is my favorite rubber to use as my forehand. i just recently got the tenergy 05. i feel like the acuda s1 turbo has a lot more snap feeling to it. not as much effort has to be used to get a lot of speed and spin from it. very hard to control at first, but once u get a handle of it. it is simply the best rubber to use as a offensive/high spin/high speed rubber.
Excellent rubber for away from the table, much Faster than F3 bigslam, Vario bigslam and Coppa Tagora, Slightly faster than Bluefire M1.
Spin is excellent (from someone with limited experience with hard rubber) can do short spinny loops, hard loop drives and counter loops. The down side is the short spinny loops take a lot of effort and precision and are much harder to excecute when tired.
Short game was surprisingly good, with decent spin on pushes and flicks and good control.
In summary, very good rubber for attackers and loopers as long as they watch the throw angle on loops of of heavy backspin. My personal belief is that this thing is a monster of a forehand rubber.
Amazing attacking rubber, but needs strong physics and technique to be used.
As an intermediate player, ive spent much time dealing with it, but now i am pretty happy.
My opinion is that it is underrated hi-end stuff.
In terms of speed and spin as good as any Tenergy out there. A monster rubber with tremendous potential. I don't believe any human can reach the level of speed or spin this rubber can offer. If you have ,it keep it , excellent in every aspect.
Super Speed and spin on of the best rubbers u could ever think of :)
Excellent rubber, but my skills do not fit to this type of rubber. Even this rubber is difficult to me I like it.
Good control and speed in this fast offensive forehand rubber build for loop drive and over the table attack. Good blocking and smash. Short ball and service not as easy compared to Acuda S2 due to its speed is very much step up and dwell time reduce. Feel not as hard or tacky compare with Chinese rubber.
