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.

I tried during last 20 years few Donic rubbers , Tenergy 05 , Tibhar FX-P. Donic Baracuda is imho the best of all of them. Donic Baracuda has big spin potential and good speed. Baracuda is very good in combination with stiff blades , as my Avalox P700. Highly recomended for new "plastic time".
Played about 7 hours with this rubber so far on FH. Used with Xiom Stradivarius and found it was too stiff to get dwell with this rubber. Then used Xiom Offensive S and feels fantastic, amazing and powerful spin. When playing vs tenergy users they struggle to block the incoming ball because of the unexpected spin. Power is lacking slightly but adequate to finish the point, enables tidy and slow spin loops which you could argue is more useful for consistency. Overall loving this rubber and continue with it on the FH. Tenergy 05 has recently gone up to 54 from 50 in the UK :(.
Yasaka Extra Offensive 7 Power (Carbon blade. OFF+) Rubbers: Yasaka Rakza 7 1.8 black. Donic Barracuda 1.8 black. I prefer Rakza 7 with this blade both on forehand and backhand. Reason: Although both play quite simalar, Rakza 7 is slightly livlier, harder, giving you therefore a better feedback. Barracuda (tiny softer) requires more of your own add up/power/work. The spin generation is almost the same.
Barracuda have massive spin potential, very high throw, medium speed. Grip the ball very well, so easy to lift heavy under spin. Sponge feel no special, just a little speed glue " CLUCK " feel. Best for near table and good for far table. For me, playing barracuda is much more easy then play with Tenergy 05, barracuda is much more safe and a little bit more forgiveable. For some stroke, tenergy 05 require heavy brush to loop the ball. And the last thing, durability is very good, topsheet come from natural rubber, unlike Acuda Blue series and rasant grip that feel much more sinthetic.
Very good backhand rubber. Excellent dwell time, extremely grippy and spiny, decent catapult effect. Speed is weak but well-compensated by control.
very spinny rubber!(used it on my backhand) hard to block against strong loops, but highly rewarding when looping! serves where great. I would recomend it if you are a offensive player looking for more spin on your strokes.
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
