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.

This is going to sound strange but it feels like when they made this rubber, their main goal was to recreate the t05FX, not anything better. Has very good soft feel and spin. Super bouncy but not that fast, indicative of limited gears
I switched to this after trying Tibhar Evolution MX-P. I have also tried Donic Baracuda and have hit with Tenergy 05, 64, and 05fx.
Andy Smith pretty much sums it all up. I love the spin on the serves and loops. I land shots with this rubber that blow my mind. Although, I find it easier to land a lot of those shots using Tenergy 05. I feel with Tenergy 05 I can get the ball to break out away from the table easier. Other than that, Bluefire does everything else just as well for me. I'm sticking with Bluefire for awhile. I may even move from Baracuda to Bluefire on my BH. Keep up the good work DONIC.
I needed a rubber with enough pace, spin and control for my FH. I'm setting up the points with my Dtecs OX on BH so when the opportunuty occurs I kill the rally with a smash. The M3 that I have is in black and 1,8mm and has enough speed to put the smash away. When in defense it has enough spin and control to loop or chop from a distance. Great rubber to me but very expensive (around 46 euro/60 dollars) over here in the Netherlands.
Played with Desto F3 back in the day and loved it. Then F3 Big Slam came out and switched to it and loved it. Noticed I didn't have quite as much spin though as other rubbers. Then Acuda S3 comes out and first rubber I found in years that I could replace F3 and F3 Bigslam with. Better speed/spin and still pretty good control. Now comes along Bluefire series and decided to give M3 a try. It's heavier but got used to it. First thing I noticed right from the very first loop was that it had much more spin. This rubber produces some serious spin! It's quite firmer than S3 IMO and didn't think I could play with a firmer rubber like this but decided to play with it for another week. Finally went back to Acuda S3 and first thing I realized was that it didn't have nearly the amount of spin that Bluefire did. It's also is more springy like Andy Smith said. Made up my mind right there that I was putting the Bluefire back on and that was that. Played a tournament with it after about using it for 2 weeks and lost 3 close matches to 2250 - 2300+ players. Just played 2nd tournament with it and won the event. Beat a 2250 - 2300 player in finals and one of the best matches I've ever played. The spin I was able to generate with it really caused problems for my opponents, and the blocking was superb. I blocked many outright winners with it. This rubber is really great!
I'm currently using this on BH, 2.0 mm thickness.
AndySmith sums it up well in his review. The grip is fantastic, the throw angle is very high but the ball just snaps back down. Linear, easy to control. I have no issues with the blocking, feels good. There is indeed more dwell-time than I've experienced with other tensors, but the rubber is still not mushy at all, there's still a crisp feeling. Not super fast, but you could use max thickness to get the speed up a little if you're a speed freak. Or maybe try the M2 or M1.
The only minor downside I can find is that it's a little heavier than most other soft(ish) tensors.
I've tried quite a few rubbers over the last year or so, but have always gone back to Rakza 7 Soft as my BH rubber. Not anymore though, the Bluefire is on my blade to stay.
