Even more sound and control due to the softer sponge.The new FORMULA DONIC BARACUDA BIG SLAM rubber with inbuilt speed glue effect produces fantastic spin.

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 BIG SLAM 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 BIG SLAM?s top rubber surface has been newly constructed to minimise abrasion. The happy result: more playing hours with a surface that remains intact without noticeable abrasion.

Reviews of Donic Baracuda Big Slam (15)
The rubber is very linear, my opponents say, that it is a bit easier to play against, than MX-P, because MX-P is more faster and rougher. But because of the control I can do counterspins to every loop, with decent speed. Spin sensitivity is very forgiving. My Blade is 92,4 gr, with rubbers it is under 180, which is considered a medium/light blade. It does not feel squishy on this stiff blade, ideal backhand rubber for spin oriented attacker or dropper style of play. Gives freedom of ball handling sacreficing a little speed, but gives huge spin in return.
Tried it but the balls only remain two dimensional spun balls.
For the Shakehand Grip player hitting the ball by scraping along the edge of the rubber sheet, the ball would be propelled like a Side Spin or with elbow inverted (backhand) become a shaking Top Spin ball.
As the player become older in age, his injury recovery is slow. And when the player still enjoys a Table Tennis game at age 90 years-- you shall know he is "playing" you for keeps.
Like all sports and physical activities-- its the "Innovator" that "stays in the game" even after the tournament is over. And he never takes his emotions to the tournament or to the the players. It is never about winning the point, nor winning the game, but about surviving your experiences as a player and returning stronger. The high technology equipment helps, but the techniques should be internalized and practiced. Recommend Donic Barracuda Big Slam for its careful and considerate engineering in creating a rubber sheet that is technically superior both for the Penholder Grip and Shakehand Grip players.
Although expensive its a consistent and durable product to develop ball manipulation techniques which gives no quarters.
This product deserves nine stars for Donic's engineering efforts.
Slightly softer than the original Bara, but not as soft as the other Big Slam versions (Vario and F3 Big Slam are much softer). Throw is lower, speed slightly less, spin remains very high. This suits my BH, and I find it a bit easier to use than Acuda S3 on the BH side due to the easy access to spin and slightly deader feel in the short game.
Excellent BH choice, and agree with everything NS said in his/her review above.
The first time I used it, it felt so easy to put all the shots on the table, no matter the amount of backspin my oponent was applying to the ball. Also I noticed that my oponents started having more problems trying to control my topspin shots, they said it themselves.
Totally recommended, I use it on my forehand along with a Schlager Carbon and a Desto F3 Big Slam on the backhand.
