Description from the website:
The BARNA ORIGINAL Super Glanti is a new Anti-topspin rubber with a frictionless very slick surface.

With Super Glanti the opponents rotation is switched to the opposite due to the ball slipping through and being returned to the opponent.

This creates spectacular spin variants and unusual ball trajectories.

The speed absorbing sponge optimizes the control properties of this unique anti-spin rubber and even allows for interesting offensive shots.

The highest disruptive effect and the best spin reversal you get with SUPER GLANTI in 0,8 mm.
The 1,6 mm version is the slowest. The 1,2 mm version is a perfect compromise
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was released today I believe. As you may know, Barna Original is owned by DMS. So perhaps it's an upgrade of the Scandal. Looks like it has the same sponge as the new Glanti (but not released yet) played by Amir Ahmed, the DMS Störkraft.

The Störkraft has the same sponge as the red that comes with Vortex. No idea if aldo Super Glanti has that sponge.

I PMed a few questions to Amir. I will let you know what he answers unless he post his knowledge directly here.

Interesting.
How did you know about the sponge of the Störkraft ? I tried to gather some information, but I failed :(

Just ordered one sheet in 0.8mm in red.
Now, I'll wait for the Störkraft release and I will be good for a few years I believe.

Well, I believe since the Scandal they will last a long time. I have the Scandal since September, and it's still going strong. Perhaps a little bit less spin reversal but nothing too much.
It's not like the Diabolic, Transformer... who last 2 weeks and they begin to gain some grip

Super Glanti has a yellow sponge. "On attack (1.2mm version) it looks like more direct and faster than the Vortex in 1.2m". This is the report of a guy in the german forum.
It sounds interesting

I wonder if the yellow sponge is the same new one as DMS will use with the new Spinparasite Special? We'll see. I am more curious about the Störkraft, I think that will be very good. This Barna sound more like an update of Mega Block, safe but a little boring :).

Is the yellow sponge the same as the vortex yellow sponge ? If yes it's very similar to the red sponge of Vortex, a very slow sponge.

How did you establish the connection between the Mega block and the Barna Original ? Thanks to the online description?

Well, Barna and Der Materialspezialist has the same owner I believe, the same layout of their webpage etc, so I guess they use the same scales for describing spin, speed and deception. And by those numbers it seems as if Barna Glanti would be like an improved Mega Block. Just my own thoughts, nothing else.

I wonder why Guido has released this anti before Storkraft.I wonder why Amir keeps it in secret too .I wonder why Amir won't play with this anti as he usually plays with the newest anti for being an sponsored athlete.So much secrecy???

Well, Amir already playing with the Störkraft. I hope they didn't released this anti before the Störkraft just because it's less efficient than the Störkraft.

I am not sure this Super Glanti is optimized for Amir's style. Störkraft is probably more efficient for his game or he would use Super Glanti. But not many plays like Amir, so Super Glanti may be the better choice for many others. We'll see.

But I was hoping for a video with Amir using Super Glanti...

Does anybody have any idea of how Storkraft is supposed to be different from Scandal?
