The BF series is the first tensor I've used with a massive range of gears. The topsheet is also the grippiest I've used in this type of rubber.
It's not overly bouncy like old-gen tensors, and behaves very well in the short game. Service spin is excellent. The combination of topsheet and sponge give a real sense of "dwell" when you hit the ball, whereas previous tensors (Acuda, Coppa, etc) just fire the ball out. Accordingly, blocking does feel a little indirect at first, and it's not as fast as previous tensors when hitting flat.
But it's looping where this rubber shines. It's a loop monster. The arc is massive, spin huge, which gives you an enormous window to work with.
This is a special rubber.

I played this only 5 minutes on a tibhar chila. First I took it on fh, and my first impression are : this is less spinny than an evolution fx-p and rasant powersponge, I'm a bit disapointed. As speed as the evolution, a little more than the rasant ps. Because of his less spin, I tried it on my bh, and here is the revelation : I can do everything I want, all my balls are on the table !!! A real good control. Still less effective than other, but so much more controlable, so it became more effective (I'm not afraid to make out of hell topspins). And an other good stuff is blocking with it. My blocks are very consistent and I can place the ball wherever I want. Perfect for activblock/countertop right after the bounce. I didn't test chop, chop block, serve and pushes. But sure I will buy it for my bh !

Fantastic rubber for off+ blades very hard and very stiff...

changes from Tenergy05 I'm able to play M3 without problem, awesome rubber from Donic :) not over price. I will stick with Bluefire series.

Overall a very good rubber. Using it on my FH and BH in max. My blade is andro kinetic explorer OFF+. It works pretty darn well. Serves come a little long but spinny nonetheless. Short game and touch play are pretty good but sometimes the ball goes long. It Looping mid-distance is really easy as the throw angle is high and my blade is quite fast so yeah loops are real good. However, looping underspin requires a relatively high angle and not a very fast stroke as the rubber has a high dwell time. Blocking is really easy as long as you read the spin carefully. Flicks work well but sometimes go long. Works well if you play not too passive or aggressive.
