We recommend DONIC DESTO F3 BigSlam to the following players.

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. Available: in Red and Black
- 1.8mm / 2.0mm / MAX

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 amazing 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.

I fell that not sound like f3 big slam made years ago.

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.

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

Review it!
