The rubber with vicious spin.
The new FORMULA DONIC BARACUDA rubber with inbuilt speed glue effect produces fantastic spin. With DONIC BARACUDA the ball leaves the blade in a conspicuously higher arc, giving considerably more spin. The increased rotation of the ball stabilises 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 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's top rubber surface has been newly constructed to minimise abrasion and damage to the edges. The happy result: more playing hours with a surface that remains intact without noticeable damage.

very good for topspin game. loads of spin. easy to loop backspin balls. Helped my bh loop a lot.
Mine is a black 2.0mm weighs 49.6 cut to standard size shakehand blade(157x150mm). Not very fast but great on off&off+ blades to tame it. Baracuda is very grippy, easy to lift underspin balls and generates super spin. the most spinniest rubber I tried so far. It's drawbacks are: heavy, smashing just OK & is sensitive to spin. I tried it on several of my blades and now I have it on Yasaka Extra Offensive 7 Power forehand. This combo generates ridiculous spin that will surprise your opponents. Baracuda is great for loopers but not so great for heavy hitters & smashers. Great match on low throw Off/Off+ blades. My ratings: speed=8.5, spin=9.6, control=8.5, grip=10, throw=high, hardness=5, feel=very good/solid, overall=9.3 (too heavy, otherwise 9.5)
Very high spin can be generated in slow or fast loops,flicks good,blocks and drives are average because of very high throw and sensivity to incoming spin. Less bouncy compare to tenergy 05 fx due to thicker topsheet. Quite heavy rubber maybe same like tenergy series.durability ok
Currently using it with treiber z with max thickness on my forehand. This thing produces monster spin. Creates slow and spiny loops and I can loop a low ball due to high dwell. Control is good. blocks are okay. It's probably best on a carbon blade. Something a bit stiff to allow the ball to sink into the medium soft sponge. I prefer this over the mx-p and the andro rasant grip. There is a bit more control and more spin with less speed. Although I would not recommend it to someone over 2000 USATT since it might be too slow.
I am using it for FH and I am very happy with it. I using it on YinHe T-3 blade and it shines when I spin or smash.
I start using this rubber in my FH with Timo Boll ALC, easy looping lots of control the ball kicks a lot. The rubber has a little less speed than some tensors, but the tackiness of this rubber works for a very spinny game.
As I said looping is one of the best qualities of this rubber, also serving gets very spinny. This rubber is a must for all intermediate players.
In the short game you can flick and push with ease due to this rubber great control, active and passive blocking also easier than what I have with Bluefire JP Series.
I like this rubber, spin is amazing, tough I prefer Acuda Blue Series because I'm an speed oriented player.
Love this rubber! I'm not an expert, but I have tried a half dozen rubbers in my short time playing. This rubber is not super tacky, creates good spin and has great control. Using the max thickness and it's definitely my favorite right now.

Pip Length: Short (0.81mm).
Pip Width: Average (1.73mm).
Pip Spacing: Very Dense (0.56mm).
Sponge Hardness: Medium.
Top Sheet Hardness: Hard.
Weight (Max): Medium-Heavy (48g, 0.235g/cm^2).
Very good rubber. Excellent spin generation. Slightly better control on active shots than Tenergy 05. Softer than Tenergy 05. Kind of like a Tenergy 64 but with 05 like spin generation capabilities and throw but slower. Not quite as good as Tenergy and doesn't last as long but much cheaper.
