Donic Acuda S2 is a very fast rubber with outstanding spin qualities. Close to or away from the table it is possible to play "loop-loop" as in the days of speed glued rubbers. Despite its medium-hard sponge, ACUDA S1 is easily controllable and has a great feel. You can count on ACUDA S1 even in an awkward situation. This rubber may be fast but ball control is excellent. Basic character: spin-focused, high precision fast rubber. Player's style: aggressive, first ball attack, close to the table.

i changed my almana stiga and tackness C butterfly with these two rubbers . I was unable to replay on the top spin like a always do . Nearly always the trajectory is not like before : a power shot with a lot of energy to spinning down . i 've often shot out of the table easy reply in top spin . i not recommend .
Kesan pertama dari karet ini adalah mahal. Efek catapult terasa sekalli. Jika dipajai di blade off++, kita akan kesulitan menngendalikan bola. Sering out. Tidak terlalu tacky, tetapi gripnya cukup saja. Dengan teknik pukul bola yang benar, spin sangat mematikan. Memakai spon soft, controlnya menjadi agak sulit. Karet ini adalah karet profesional, bagi pemula, akan sulit memakainya. Tetapi bagi pro, karet ini senjata yang hebat
It has the tenergy 5 feeling but not the speed and power. Good grip on the ball when looping. It's like a controlled version of Tenergy5. Highly recommended.
I know that my very short experience in table tennis gives me a narrow view on the available equipments on the market but the Acuda S2 was a very good choice for me. I started ca. 3 month-ago and wanted a rubber that gives me good control and spin rather speed. That is what the rubber does so well along with above average speed too. High quality, very recommended rubber.

This is a very reliable rubber. Not a speed demon, but paired with a somehow harder blade like Yasaka's Ma Lin Extra Special, has the power to finish the point. Ma Lin Extra Special paired with this rubber offered a nice dwell time, giving more control and spin. Loops very well. Great choice for those looking for something more aggressive than classic rubbers such as Sriver but with good control.
What I love about this rubber:
Speed, Spin, Control and Durability.
What I don't like about my Acuda S2:
Throw is not high enough for my punch block probably because of the Size of my sponge.
This is my 2nd Acuda S2, it is working for me so I'm sticking to this one.
When this rubber just came out, it was very good. The ball use to sink into the rubber and I can have good control over my shots and the rubber kept it's spin for about 9 months, when i played 6 hours per week. Now acuda s2 loses about 30% of it's spin after 2 months and the top sheet and sponge feels harder, the ball does not sink into the top sheet like before. Donic changed the formula. I will now have to look for another rubber to buy.
Fast and nice rubber to spin mid-table but you must hit the ball for maximum top spin because it's sponge medium . Use it with Tibhar COS3 defensive
not a bad choice if you prefer an all-rounded game, just it is not a sharp weapon for far-distance shots.
Good Rubber. Played it 1 season. U can do every shot with this rubber but the durability isn't the best. 1st pair had a good durability and the 2nd pair i had to change after 2 months.
My 3rd was better then the 2nd pair but not good enough.
In my opinion it is better than Acuda S1 overall.
U can get this rubber for 30 and i think it is a really nice prize for such a good rubber.
First time using such a PRO rubber...
Amazing spin and speed. Perfect for my Forehand.
Very good for drives and serves. You will get lots of spin doing the right movements with the ball.
Havent tried blocking a lot with it, but you might have just to adjust your angle acording to the spin and strength.
Glued in a Tibhar Red Cypress. Very nice (y)
This is good rubber, needed a week of hiting to break through the spange and then it start playing relly well... it has pretty consistent strong spin, and moderate speed. It has high arch on slow loops and medium to low on fast loops. I am Using it on forehand and t64 on backhand of my t-8 blade. Pretty happy with it, A2 doesn't excel in any particular aspect, but does everything well, and overall very solid Rubber.
