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.

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
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.
