Good rubber for looping from mid distance. I have it on my fh with max size and on a xiom offensive s blade. The problem I have with this rubber is that it's hard to loop close to the table. Slow looping close to the table is even harder. I think it has to do with the tensor on this rubber. The ball usually goes far and fast even if you try to slow loop. But the good thing about the rubber is how awesome it is when you are at mid distance. I can make some crazy shots from mid distance.
Update: After some practise the slow loops works fine though. It's deffinetly a good rubber. Best rubber I have used! Love it!

So far this is my favorite do-it-all rubber for the offensive minded player. S3 is the only rubber I have found with the spin qualities of Tenergy05, the control of Sriver, the throw angle of Bryce FX and the loud noise of Sinus Sound. It allows me to flip almost any underspin serve or play close to the net without the occasional pop up problem of Tenergy. Hitting is much more consistent in now I can hit with a human for 2-3 minutes without stopping, where as before I'd last about 20 seconds before hitting a stray ball. Looping is a dream with this rubber. Not only do I get strong Ten05-ish spin, but it does so with a much lower throw angle, which puts more pressure on my opponent. I can't tell a difference in my service spin or control coming from Baracuda or ProBeta. But the weight is similar to Baracuda and a little heavier than ProBeta and much lighter than Tenergy. I've been using S3 on both sides of my TBSpirit for the past 2 months and have no downfalls to report on this rubber.

Acuda S3 has soft sponge, best for lift under spin ball, not to fast but fast enough to finish a point. Also not durable, edge easy to chip. Price just fine. Overall it was a good rubber for control and it has nice click sound.

Great rubber. I have bought one fresh in 2015 and found it a tad harder with a little more kick. Still a great rubber with a lot of control. Makes a great bh and it pairs great with any blade, great last generation rubber : springy rubber, grippy topsheet, lightweight with good control.
