Donic Vario Big Slam
For more than two very successful decades the DONIC Vario rubber series has had a lasting impact on the sport of table tennis. Now, for the first time DONIC presents a rubber sheet in this series labelled "Made in Germany". The DONIC Vario Big Slam is the result of the world famous Formula DONIC technology with inbuilt speed glue effect.
Due to its extremely soft 35 degree sponge, you get perfect feeling on the blade. This is the ideal rubber for spin and rotation players who prefer soft rubbers and like to hear a fantastic sound when hitting the ball.
Donic is a table tennis equipment manufacturer that produces high-quality products in Volklingen, Germany. In business for over 25 years, they have been on the forefront of research and development, led by top Swedish pro players Jan-Ove Waldner and Jorgen Persson. They also sponsor top German player Dimitri Ovtcharov among others.
Ask around your local table tennis club and you'll be sure to find some players using Donic equipment. They have a great reputation and it's no surprise when you look at their rubbers. Three of their most well-known product lines are undoubtedly the Acuda, Bluefire and Bluestorm series. Additionally, a spin-heavy favorite for the backhand is the Donic Baracuda. If you like to spin, smash, or a little bit of both, you won't go wrong with Donic.

Reviews of Donic Vario Big Slam (8)
My instinct was definitely right!! I'm now landing far more of my shots on the table, blocking is far more accurate and controlled, and because the rubber is non-tacky, my short game is much better and less sensitive to incoming spin, although I can still generate a good amount of spin on serves.
I only wish I'd been less conservative with the sponge thickness I chose (1.8mm), as it feels a little underpowered - but that's probably the Palio blade which is slow. Once I've chosen a faster blade I think this will be a good rubber to develop my game before I move on to something faster.
It gives a very good feeling of the blade. it is also very reliable, lending to very consistent loops, pushes, chops, lobs, blocks, and everything else. The only downside is the sponge is too soft for the forehand, and it bottoms out, especially when smashing.
