Donic BlueStar A1 has great potential to become the new star among the Donic table tennis rubber sheets because of its new technology.

The secret of BlueStar lies in its rubber sponge, it is completely different from all other sponges in the Donic rubber line. This new rubber technology is called "Optimized Energy Sponge", or OPTE for short. A small-pored sponge that sets new standards in terms of elasticity and dampening level due to its special composition, and you can feel this technology instantly when playing.

The fantastic catapult and speed characteristics make Donic BlueStar A1 an exceptional product. The top sheet - unlike the successful rubbers of Donic’s Bluegrip C-Touch series - is only slightly sticky, but it is extremely grippy.

With a 52.5 degree sponge, the BlueStar A1 appears relatively hard but only at first glance. In the hands of professional players it quickly becomes a strong trump card. Nevertheless, ambitious table tennis players who are not active in the top classes can also enjoy BlueStar, although it is particularly recommended for players who practice intensively.

Technology: Former world champion Jörgen Persson is enthusiastic about this new development. "I have never before played such an excellent table tennis rubber," explained the Swedish legend.

Recommended for: Ambitious, uncompromising offensive table tennis players.

Reviews of Donic BlueStar A1 (7)

Very fast rubber, but the spin is not better than T05 (9.9 is not realistic !). Max red, weight is 50g. Spin and speed are excellent, it behaves as EU rubber. The control is quite special, because flat touch leads to slow block, but block with a slight angle leads to bouncy reaction. So it might take some time to adjust and benefit of such capability observed on Presson WC89 (SZLC) with spruce as top wood. It was too fast on this SZLC blade, too fast on TB ALC or Viscaria, so ... I am trying to find a OFF- blade to handle this super fast rubber. Maybe a blade having speed of 8.5~8.7 might be better than speed >9.0.

Good rubber.
Like hurricane 3, cannot be lazy. It's very easy to shoot the ball out since it's quite fast and has a high throw angle, so you have to be careful when you block and counter. Very grippy, touch in short game is not as good as h3(national blue sponge, boosted) but still very good compared to extremely bouncy rubbers like tenergy 05. I would say this rubber is between t05 and h3, like a eurojap tensor thats made to be similar to chinese style of play but faster.
I think the tackiness rating of some of the reviews is a little overexaggerated, it's not medium tacky. it's tacky, but not enough to consistently lift the ball but you can feel it stick.

So good for all out forehands like ryu seung min style.

Great rubber. Very fast with great speed and spin. Not for beginners and those with lazy strokes though! Since it's fast and Throw angle is pretty high so you have to close the bat more when driving, blocking and counterlooping topspin to avoid setting up an easy smash or missing the table, but it's easier to get it over the net when looping and flicking backspin and deadballs. I have it on the backhand and forehand and it's super deadly when proper technique is used.. it has all the speed and spin anybody could need. You need pretty solid technique to use this rubber otherwise it is gonna be tough to control.

Paired them with a donic persson power carbon senso ST (90g), 6.00 mm, 7+2 carbon (limba outer ply). It actually feels like a BTY SZLC blade, and I can say that because I used to play with Mizutani Jun szlc… regarding the rubbers I just can say that they feel softer than 52.5 esn tensor degrees, more like 45 degrees or something like that, but maybe that’s the effect of the OPTE donic new sponge; feels superior than ie. a tenergy 05, it allows you to loop easy, counter top, and flat hitting still have a lot of feeling. On passive shots it doesn’t feel too much responsive and short game is spectacular. It’s really an hybrid, doesn’t feel grippy but doesn’t feel tacky at touch, it’s something between. Cleaning the rubber surface it’s very easy with rev. 3 rubber rejuvenator. Throw angle is very high and the ball lands at the end of the table as advertised. Must give them a try, best ESN tensor rubber out there at the moment.
