Donic Bluefire M1
Characteristics: highly dynamic, extremely spinny top sheet Recommended for: top players or players who practice a lot and prefer to use harder rubbers.
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.

Blue is the color of the sky! Superb!
Very very fast rubber with lots of spin. I recently tried the bluefire M3 on a friends blade and liked it a little more due to the softer sponge. Very good for chops and backhand drives. Bad for blocking unless you really angle the blade towards the table.
This is a good rubber, but it is not the high end that it is usually advertized about. The bounciness is good for attacking, but detrimental for defending, particularly in chopping and underspin defense.
nice catapult effect, i got mine today and when i use topspin, is so nice, when it touch the table, cuz is just go like a lighting away from me. excelent forehand rubber.
update, After two months i think this rubber is still great, hasn´t loss any of its spin and speed, but i think the short game, close to the table blocking is a little dificult
quick comparison of the 3 bluefire rubbers:
M1: fh rubber for very good (semi-pro) powerloopers who consistently hit very hard and never need controlled loops.
m2: for loopers who do not consistently hit hard, and need to generate spin in controlled loops.
m3: bh rubber for loopers who try to loop any service, so they need be able to play controlled loops with little power and thin contact.
Details on M1:
m1 has a _very_ hard sponge. As a result, the ball won't sink in controlled loops, so you don't get spin in rally. you only get spin when you hit very hard (and in this case the ball goes very long, so you'd better have the right blade angle).
Block: with m1 it is very difficult to block. it's because the ball does not sink in the sponge in passive block, so it drops down. Therefore with M1 you have to pay a lot of attention to the speed of the incoming loop, and open the blade accordingly. As a result, blocking is very difficult. THis is like rakza 9 btw. --- M2 is totally different. blocks like a dream.
Loops: difficult, because the throw depends a lot on how much the ball sinks, and therefore on the speed of the incoming loop. So you have to pay a lot of attention on the speed of the incoming loop, not only to its spin.
throw angle: low when the ball does not sink in the sponge, high when it does.
note: m1 is very similar to rakza 9.
all the above is on clipper wood, a stiff and soft blade.
