Description of Donic Bluefire M3

The blue miracle

Donic's new Bluefire is a completely new rubber development offering top speed. A new high-tech generation of rubbers in the proven Formula FD3-technology has been developed as a result of the perfect combination of the large pored blue sponge with an extremely spinny top surface rubber. The top rubber with its small, long pimpled-in structure lends the rubber the best possible flexibility and sensational feeling. Above all, the Bluefire is unbelievably fast with a characteristic high arc when top-spinning that enables maximum spin and increased speed.

M3's sponge is harder than the acudas blue p1, which was funny to me because p1 is supposed to be the hardest sponge on the blue series. Both topsheets seems very grippy (semi-tacky). Havent played with it yet, but those are my first impressions.

The Bluefire series from Donic tries to be an alternative to the famous (and expensive) BF Tenergy. Well more or less Donic did the job. I agree and can only repeat what others say that every person feels the pros/cons a bit different because they play different. My experience was the following. M3 has a really good looping arc, huge. Smashing is quite nice. It is easy to control the spin amount of the ball and hit "empty" balls with loop like hits. Chopping and passive chopping, lifting is easy. Had to adjust dropping but it is easy now. Passive play is really good and the rubber is quite forgiving for little mistakes. So to summerise pros: you can loop every ball and attack till midrange. There is difference between the black and the red rubber surface after a year: black topsheet remains softer red is a bit harder. The rubber surface looks grainy when it is new, after some play when this surface comes off some of the soft grip is lost, so you have to hit the ball a bit harder to loop efficiently. So to summerise hit it hard and everything will be just fine. Or get an OFF- blade and hit just a bit less hard. Finally I have finished the testing of the rubber. After 300 hours of effective table tennis, including 3 training camps, 30+ competitions and 4 regluing all I can say that this rubber is good. The loss of the grip is quite little, you can easily adjust without noticing. The rubber plays good on OFF- stiff to spin-elastic blades. I Used int on my BH, dropping and opening loops were still awsome. Chiqita and smash hits were a bit harder with the rubber getting older. The rubber should be still good to play or practice but my hand is really swetty and the topsheet of the rubber finally gave in, it melted at the top of my index finger. The Rubber is very durable, the edges are intact, no tears on it. The surface is worn by many hits and loops, but the sponge is in quite good shape.

good control,a lot of spin,enough speed for all-rounders.due to its high throw it's suitable for looping,specially for lifting short balls.Drive looping is not very good,specially in mid and long distance,because of the moderate speed.I recommend to use this rubber on hard carbon blade because it is medium-soft rubber and gives u enough dwell time and feel. due to high throw angle and its softness it is not very good in hard hitting,so I prefer it on backhand. I have trouble with short pushes ,maybe because I'm not trained enough,but I think it's somehow related to the softness,tackiness and throw of the rubber. Update:odd thing (after 4 mount using) about this rubber is that it shrinks and also make the ball dirty (black lines on the ball,cos my rubber is black)

this is a great rubber, when I started to play with it I used it on my fh, and a tin arc on my bh. I thought it was too slow for a fh, so I switched to the bh. in my bh, all the 3rd balls were full of spin, and so are the normal bhs. You won't have problems with control, but I rated 9/10 because in some counter attacks it can "explode". Good for people who are starting!
