Donic Bluestorm Z1: A LIGHTNING STRIKE!

Bluestorm Z1 with its medium pored sponge and a short, wide pimple structure is the hardest and fastest of the three Bluestorm versions. It has immense power. However, in order to engage with so much horse power, a competent driver is required behind the wheel. A well trained player, master of the fastest game, will find Z1 to be a lethal weapon.

A comprehensively thinner top surface rubber, subjected to high tension, allows space for a thicker sponge - generating extra power and speed.

Speed: 97
Spin: 97
Control: 69

Fantastic rubber at backhand. A little slower than Z1 Turbo (still fast) but very controllable. Punches and loops are fast and/or spinny. Blocks are fantastic too.

One of the fastest 47.5 rubbers.
It has softer feel , on press test feels like 42 degrees rubber because top sheet is soft and elastic.
Catapult is just crazy intense. You need a good technic to play with this rubber , this is also stated on donic site.
Very little dwell time. Arc is low and long .
Blocking is not automatic you must to work on blocking - go over the ball.
Lifting backspin is a bit harder because of lower throw.
Repulsive force of sponge is very strong so ball don't have much time on rubber to get maximum spin values , but speed is there and it has maximum values.
If you play with this rubber correctly you will be

I use this rubber since 2017, so I think I lnow it very well. I tried it occasionally with a lot of blades, and permanently with Dhs Hurricane Bo2. It's a really agressive rubber with a lack of dwell time, requires good ballcontroll and precise technique. I play with this rubber on both sides actually on a Hurricame Long3. In short game it can throw the ball high and long, this is why I said it requires good ballcontroll. If you just touch the ball with the topsheet, it could be very consistent and spinny in touch game, serve and receive. The block is fine, but you have to handle the ball. Attack is wonderful, it grips the ball and throws it out very quickly. The speed can be insane without dicreasing the spin. My coach also plays eith this rubber instead of tenergy 05. For me it lasts about 3 months. I have tried a lot of rubbers and this is the average durability for my usage. I recommend it for intermediate and pro players. For beginners i would recommend z2, which is slower and more consistent.

Works very well on my Donic Waldner World Champion 89 Blade. Using the (2.1) thickness on the blade (both sides) and it gives me the speed and power when needed but most of all it is very controllable and ball placement comes easy. The Donic Waldner WC89 blade is known for being a blocking machine and if you put Z1 on the blade it will definitely enhance the blocking (nice combination). 5 Stars and a 10.
