Review of Donic Acuda S3
The Acuda S3 is an all-round table tennis rubber from Donic. It is one of the Acuda Series which are well known for the excellency of spin features. The Acuda offers you the least speed and power in the series in exchange to the best controllability. Due to the softer sponge, it is significantly slower than Acuda S1 while its controllability is immensely better.
Regarding its spin power, it offers you incredibly great amount of topspin for both drive and loop, especially from mid to far distance. Even though it seems to have relatively less spin power and lower throw angle than its fellow, Donic Barracuda, it offers you even better control and paces. It is the best if you love slow-powerful spins play.
Similar to Barracuda, it is very forgiving rubber that gives you an extra errors margin which means you can potentially return a fine shot even with imperfect strokes.
Due to its monstrous controllability, it is fantastic for both passive and active counter block. It allows you to return the ball from near to far distance precisely. In addition, it is also great for a smash with excellent feel and sound. However, it is relatively slow table tennis rubber for offensive play style, you may need to put a little extra effort to perform a killer shot.
Since it has relatively less power but shines on control and spin, it is commonly used for the backhand side.
Overall this rubber is perfect for all-round players who focus on spin area. It is not the best for a very aggressive attacking players (OFF+) nor a hardcore aggressive spin play.
