Donic Baracuda

Select color/thickness:


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.

Speed: 91
Spin: 98
Control: 71

Reviews of Donic Baracuda (118)

Has a high throw angle so that makes it good for loops but bad for smashes. Improved my loop really good with this rubber

Excellent on my backhand. Improved my opening against underspin immediately. Inspiring the confidence that I have been lacking when using my backhand before.

The best backhand rubber I have ever played. Very precise and repeatable. It has a high throw, and on a fast board it is not slow at all, it is fast enough. Topspin is amazing, but the serve could be more rotating. Great rubber. You can get it for around $30-35 in some stores. I use a thickness of 1.8 mm. I recommend. This rubber is very durable, actually bulletproof...

My first Donic Baracuda is a 2.0 mm thick blue Baracuda. I absolutely love it on my Innerforce Layer ALC.

Speed; It has a good speed, enough for my hybrid attack-defend style of play. Really, its speed is more than enough. Slow and fast shots can be played, according to will.

Spin; The strongest trait of this rubber, it really has an extreme spin. Despite being developed for the celluloid ball, the plastic ball can also be rotated in an extreme way. I love how spinny and grippy this rubber. It has such a strong spin it even spun off the antispin rubbers.

Control; Well yes, it has a good amount of control. It is somewhat easy to place the ball where you want to. It is not that spin sensitive as other have written. It is sensitive to spin, but not extremely.

Else; Its arc is actually not that high. It is a convenient medium-high arc, just enough to go over the net. Pushes are good with this rubber and block are okay too. Feels very nice, I can feel my blade when hitting with the rubber, it is so soft and I like it pretty much.

I will update my review as time goes on. Thus, I'm yet unable to say anything about its durability. Also, this is the 100th review about this magnificent rubber! :D

Update; I've been using it for almost 3 weeks now and so far so good! The durability is good, at least for now! I've changed my blade to Stiga Cybershape Wood and it is absolutely a great match! I love it!

Used on both sides on a yasaka ma lin carbon as my first custom racket. Plays like a slightly faster and more controllable hurricane. The spin on service is outstanding for its price, long range shots require arm and leg strength but are still manageable. The control is obviously great as it is a beginner to intermediate rubber. The feeling on the blade is great and of course if you are becoming advanced but your blade is still in good condition, dont change the whole thing, change the rubbers, unless you are unhappy with the blade of course. This rubber works well on carbon blade because of the slow speed. Dont need a 7 ply wood for the additional spin and control because barracuda already has it.
