Donic Bluefire M1
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.
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.

Reviews of Donic Bluefire M1 (49)
It was my son racket and I was tried on 2 trainings ,for me is magic rubber
I started to play 3 months ago after 25 years of break
Now Im sure I want to buy red donic blue fire m1 ,not sure what to put on backhand and also which blade to buy ?
Any ideas guys?
Thanks in advance
Style : PH (modern reverse backhand) , Offensive
i used to have M1 on FH and M2 on BH, but quickly changed to M1 on both sides. i use my RBH aggressivly and the M1 rubber has a powerful response. low tackiness, takes time to adapt, but i prefer the M1 over Tenergy05.
pros : extremely fast, can produce heavy spin in full strokes, great touch on flicks,
cons : dificult to adapt, if hit on half strokes rubber can let you down.
recommended for experienced players with good consistency and technique only, not for first timers.
Spin (European Style): 8.9
Weight: 49g in 2.2 (0.241g/cm^2)
Hardness (DHS): 37.3
Fast Loop: 9.3
Slow Loop: 9
Counter Loop: 8.9
Available Sponge Thickness: 1.8/2.0/2.2
BH:Donic sonex JP gold.I will compare it with my previous rubber (Donic coppa gold).Bluefire is much much better than coppa gold in all aspects especially in spin.High trajectory,high arc when looped.If you want huge spin and great speed go for bluefire m1 without any hesitation.
Now i will compare it with sonex jp gold:
And again spin demon is dominating!!Much better spin as compared to sonex.Specially when you put all your efforts for hitting the ball maximum part of your effort is converted into spin and rest to speed.I found speed of bluefire little bit greater or equal to sonex.
Now about rubber's other characteristics
Service:Incredible amount of spin on your serve
Banana flick:Your opponent will be stuned for sure because of the sidespin in your flick
Speed:Great enough to loop kill.For better results combine it with carbon blades.
Block:Sometimes goes out of table but when you will learn to control it you will be amazed!!
Note:It's a tacky rubber.So for 100% performance of the rubber you must have good technique (you must generate spin from your waist instead of just generating it with brushing contact)
Spin: average (9).
Control: average (9.1).
Tackiness: slightly tacky (2).
Weight: medium heavy (49g, 0.241g/cm^2).
Sponge hardness: medium hard (54/41).
Top sheet hardness: medium hard (54/41).
Gears: average (5).
Throw: medium high (5.5).
Consistency: always identical (9).
Durability: lasts longer than average (6).
Top sheet thickness: thick (1.8mm).
Surface thickness: average (0.8mm).
Pip length: long (1mm).
Pip width: average (1.6mm).
Pip spacing: average (0.7mm).
Overall: good (9.3).
Value: expensive (4).
M1 Turbo is faster and spinner than M1.
M1 is slightly faster than Tenergy 05, but it has less spin.
Donic's reference guides lists Bluefire M1 as being 47.5 deg. sponge, same as Acuda S1 Turbo and JP 01 Turbo. All I can say is that M1 felt *much harder* to me than these other offerings, to the point I couldn't get it to work for me in real world match play.
When I was in good position and made perfect contact with lots of body rotation, the loops were like lightning and just plain silly. Loops almost had the speed of a smash. Counter-looping was very fun (if I executed perfectly). However if my contact wasnt perfect, I'd usually miss.
The other aspect that stood out was that I've never tried anything in my life that was as reactive to the incoming spin as this stuff. I played practice matches with 2 different opponents whom i know well, and I kept dumping their light backspin serves into the net. I couldn't believe it, despite how much I was opening my racket angle.
So if you're a wreckless power-looping freak with complete confidence in footwork and elite strokes etc, this might be worth a try. Anybody else I'd tell them to stay away.
