Donic Acuda S2 is a very fast rubber with outstanding spin qualities. Close to or away from the table it is possible to play "loop-loop" as in the days of speed glued rubbers. Despite its medium-hard sponge, ACUDA S1 is easily controllable and has a great feel. You can count on ACUDA S1 even in an awkward situation. This rubber may be fast but ball control is excellent. Basic character: spin-focused, high precision fast rubber. Player's style: aggressive, first ball attack, close to the table.

It's a fantastic rubber. Incredibly controllable i don't know how at this moment it has only 8.2 at control, it's around a 9.0. You can do any shot with it. Because of its great spin and control i am able to do a smash hit with deadly accuracy. This will be my forehand rubber for a long time. It's only minus might be in the serving area, it's not very grippy so serves are not very spiny. But when the sponge comes into play on loops, the spin is incredible. And the lack of tackiness makes the top sheet less spin sensitive giving you better serve returns. I don't know how to explain this, it has a "meaty" feeling, if you hit hard you don't get to feel your blade, but still the tensor sponge which feels soft-ish at high speeds, which is great for me. Great rubber. Update 1: I have the Acuda S2 on the backhand too and guess what, it's just as great! I have a killer set-up, light but with a lot of power and spin with Acuda S2 on both fh and bh. Update 2: Bought a fresh one in 2015 and is a bit faster with a little more kick. Probably they are adapting to the polyball. Still same good feeling though.

This is a great rubber for forehand on stiff blades. (max thickness) The throw stays high enough for forehand, even on very hard carbon blades like Galaxy T4 (OFF+). Throw is lower than vega pro, but higher than vega europe, and much higher than calibra. Gears: even on fast carbon, the low gear is still there. Spin: excellent. Speed: excellent. More than Vega pro, less then Acuda S1 of course. Arc: like other rubbers in the acuda series (s1, s2 and s3), the arc is rather straight, i.e. it does not have as much arc as vega pro or T05 or bluefire M1 or Sanwei T88-i. However, the trajectory of Acuda S1 is low and long, whereas S2 is rather low and shorter. Strong point: very easy opening loops, which can be executed with a suprisingly slow motion, yet are spinny and long and penetrating. The arc is not high, but the spin is there and they are very easy to execute. This way, this rubber allow you to slow down the game a bit when you have a difficult ball. short game: good. (on stiff 7 ply all-wood blade, xiom extreme s).

i changed my almana stiga and tackness C butterfly with these two rubbers . I was unable to replay on the top spin like a always do . Nearly always the trajectory is not like before : a power shot with a lot of energy to spinning down . i 've often shot out of the table easy reply in top spin . i not recommend .

Warning donic has changed the formula. This rubber was once very good but now it loses its grip after 2 weeks at 6 hours of playing per week. Very poor spin durability. What a shame. And I do clean the rubber after use. I use a good rubber cleaner.
