DONIC DESTO F3 BigSlam
The sound of speed gluing has been captured in F3 BigSlam rubbers:
F3 BigSlam generates a loud crack when you hit the ball!
DONIC DESTO F3 BigSlam is recommended for players who have previously used speed glue and for those who value sound and outstanding ball control qualities rather than maximum speed. BigSlam will be a popular choice once speed glue is banned.

Reviews of Donic Desto F3 Big Slam (31)
First choice for many years, 2 mm red. Offers great spin, and nice sound, speed glue effect. It is a soft spinny rubber that also offers great control. Not fast, but fast enough in rallies if you loop with spin and focus on placement. It is also possible to test 1.8 mm or max, if you want to adjust. The quality is great. Last for a long time. Prefered on backhand, but works great on forehand aswell. Mine is some years now, but still has a lot of spin, but the sponge lost its power, and its slow. But still winning matches with it :)
Rubber offers exciting playing characteristics, speed, spin, control, blocking, ball placement, and most of all awesome sound. Great for semi-hard blades. Offers good feel and touch when ball meets rubber and sponge and sinks in so you can feel the characteristics & features of the blade (Waldner World Champion `89 OFF). One of the best spin elastic rubbers on the market that can accelerate speed you need to score a point. One of the best blocking rubbers on the market. All positive features when the proper technique is used to deliver or receive the ball. 5 stars * * * * *.
I've been playing with regular Desto F3 for many years, and tried this one last year as I was looking for something softer to associate with my new blade.
F3 BS is close to regular F3, but softer and a bit slower (you can especially feel it on attacking strokes that come back more often), but it's still fast enough to deliver winning strokes. It's really soft and thus, dedicated to topspin attackers, even more than the regular F3.
Therefore, smashing and hitting the ball flat won't be the strong point of this rubber, due to the really soft rubber.
Went to this rubber on friends advice. This rubber has back hand writen all over it. Control and block are fantastic and when you hit with it the sound and feel is very addictive LOL.
Very poor for generating backspin pushes / chops and can be attacked quite easily from this position.
Great for attacking and hitting. If you want to generate realy strong spin then this is NOT your rubber.
Most easiest rubber I've ever played with.
I've played with this rubber for 6 months (4 tournaments 3 leagues) and realise I need more spin for my game. I will miss the ease of blocking attacking shots on my backhand and the best tensor sound on the market.
my desto last longer than acuda s2 :)
for strong spin u must have good contact with ball.. very nice for bloking, looping
needs more power for strong smashing
I love it
excellent balance in speed,control and spin. I love this soft sponge, makes strokes to feel much more better. Very very good rubber
use it on kreanga powerspin and it is nice for everything, i prefer loop , but is not problem when u want or need to chop.. dont like for bloking because is too soffffttt, but with practise that is not problem :S... have it 8m and 5x 3h training and it needs to be replaced..
great rubber, perfect for loopy play on half distance. This rubber gets better the longer you have it :)
A very loud-sound rubber. It gives me a very good feel and cricking sound!
But it wears out so easily
update on my previous review of Big Slam. I've played with this rubber for years and it's good for looping off my BH, and blocking. Have noticed one weakness with it recently though...I practice regularly with another 2200 player that has short pips on his BH and when I push the ball to his BH he can attack it easily. When he plays against other players that have Chinese rubber or rubber that has more spin than Big Slam he can't attack when they push to his BH. As a result I may switch to Baracuda as this definitely has more spin. If you play with Baracuda make sure you play with 2.0 rather than max as the 2.0 seems to play better.
this rubber was invented by god. it is absolutely perfect in every way imaginable. although, the black doesnt last very long. get red. ive had it since march/april and its still working great
This rubber produces great quantities of sppeed and spin. This is the ideal rubber for offensive play and i guarantee that you will improve..
~ 2200 player that has been using Desto F3 for more than 10 yrs on my BH. Tried many others including some of the Joola soft rubbers, but they didn't last nearly as well. This rubber is one of the best for your BH. Big Slam is more like the original F3, while increased the tension in the regular F3 a couple of years ago. Can't go wrong with this, but must play with it in Max thickness...as 2.0 is too slow.
big slam is a fantastic rubber! it creates a really relaly nice sound when you hit or loop the ball, one of the loudest rubbers i have ever heard! to me, it felt like a very soft rubber that had really really good control. When you block with it, you can really feel the ball dig into the paddle. for looping, its good for getting the job done, but the speed and spin is a bit lacking in my opinion. This rubber is definitely for the players who play a game moer with control rather tahn power. the prevailing characteristic is the control that you can hear and feel when you contact the ball, which i think makes it good rubber!
put on a fast blade to make up some speed great spin very soft the only problem is looping from a distance other than that great control and spin
best bh rubber ive ever tried. consistent. great for both counterlooping and opening against backspin. very light too. only problem is that it doesnt last long
Great control, very enjoyable to play with. Not too fast, but when you bust it...fantastic!!!
Great backhand rubber, good for blocking and looping. You can really load up on spinny shots with this rubber and it's not bad for flat hits either.
