Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

Donic Desto F3 Big Slam

"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 amazingly 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.

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."

DISCLAIMER - i have never really done a rubber review, so let me know if you have any questions of things i left out.

I just got my new f3 bigslam 2.3mm and cut and put it on. I was hesitant to try and put any EEII on it as i didn't want to damage it at all......but i put them both on my korbel, the f3, and the refoma with 3 nice layers of glue, and i did a comparison.

Speed- Of course, f3 is a little slower, but surprisingly not much. I did a test where i held the paddle in one place and let the robot fire a ball at it. This gave me 2 things, speed, and throw angle. The f3 has a WAY higher throw angle than the refoma.

Spin - At first, none of my loops were landing with the f3, i thought " oh great this thing isn't as spinny as i thought it was gonna be". It took me a few minutes to realize how much different of a throw angle these had. When i adjusted the blade to be more horizontal to the ground, they all started landing with plenty of spin. I think it had about as much spin as the refoma did, it was just hard to brush loop with because of the really high throw angle. You had to really go through the ball to get the same result. When i tried a few shots on the backhand, the desto was SOOO much easier than the refoma. It's high throw let me snap that wrist really powerfully and every shot would rocket, dropping with lot's of spin.

Control - Both were satisfactory, i think when i get used to the throw angle of the desto, it will be easier to control on opening loops, especially backspin.

Serves - The high throw of the desto, and the slightly slower speed really allowed me to go at it when trying to get underspin. I could achieve just as much underspin as i could with refoma, so i see no problems with service.

Sound - When they say this thing sounds glued, THEY WERE NOT LIEING. It was 10X as loud as my glued refoma. The loudest rubber ive ever played with. Every shot just went POP!!!! It's pretty incredible, if sound is something you get excited about like me.

Feel - i enjoyed the feel of the desto more, i could really feel every shot better. This could be because the desto is brand new, but still, i actually really like the softness of it.

overall, I'm really really surprised by this rubber. I think it is a great replacement to glueing and I'm happy so far. I haven't played a match yet, but from hitting on the robot i can tell it should be good. Now the only question is how long with the effect last and how long will the rubber itself last....



It is seriously incredible. It has all the effect that glued sriver el, or refoma had, and it is more consistent. It is literally the loudest rubber ive ever used and is louder than most rubbers that are all glued up. And this is without glue or EEII, just plain normal.

I'm not joking, anyone who is looking to stop glueing, or wants to try an awesome tensor. Id highly recommend this rubber. Now i just have to see how long it lasts....
