The sound of speed gluing has been captured in F3 BigSlam rubbers:

F3 BigSlam generates a loud crack when you hit the ball!
This is the loudest DESTO FORMULA rubber that DONIC has ever produced. DONIC DESTO F3 BigSlam reproduces the loud sound that you got during the classic times of speed gluing. However, this rubber does not require speed glue and must not be speed glued! The distinctive sound has been firmly and permanently incorporated into the rubber. BigSlam is somewhat softer, but not significantly slower than its successful sibling DESTO F3. It has the same amazingly simple ball control, but gives the same effect as optimum speed glue. Whether you prefer DESTO F3 or DESTO F3 BigSlam is a matter of taste-or, should we say, of sound preference.

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.

Speed: 85
Spin: 94
Control: 72

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 had this on my BH for a short time. I thought it was kind of fast but I had just gone back to a carbon blade. It was bouncy and very light, weight in black max was about 37 g, so feather-light on my personal scale.

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.
