Reviews of Donic Bluestorm Z2 (8)
Due to the 2.3mm sponge, this rubber delivers very spongy feeling upon ball contact. Sponge 47.5 degree combined with slight soft top-sheet and thin, sparse pimples prolongs the dwell time. This also helps to increase the feeling, thus topspin very easy to be executed.
I fell in love right after playing couple shots on Boll ALC. Very easy feeling to serve and top spin.
For pushing and short games, its performance is so-so, nothing special.
Weight: ~48 gram cut. Quite light for modern rubber. Durability: shall be updated (just playing it for 10 days); expected: 2-3 months on daily use basis.
Low sensitivity to rotation, high control, medium angle, pleasant sensation, high rotation, satisfactory blocking, easy to attack, medium weight, medium hard rubber, for advanced and professional use in BH, for medium level and beginners good for FH, it is the best rubber for BH, better than T05fx, I have tried many, high marks for this rubber.
This rubber now is my 4th FH rubber on Donic Otvcharov v1 blade. I would say this is my favourite once. FYI, before this i used from DHS H3(normal ver) to Andro Hexer Powergrip(my 2nd ch)oice) then bluefire m1.
This rubber spin well.
loop excellent with a ton off spin.
not a very fast rubber. controlable.
i satisfied with it.
too powerful but very spinny can't control very well
Muy buen hule! Estaba usando Bluefire M2 para derecha y M1 para mi revs, pero al M2 senta que le faltaba potencia, adems de que me generaba curva ms alta que la que buscaba hacer en mis golpes de topspin. Pens en utilizar otro M1 para derecha, pero un amigo me recomend probar el BlueStorm Z2 con esponja Max+. El cambio se sinti de inmediato, en el golpe se senta la misma suavidad que la esponja del M2, pero con mayor velocidad, incluso algo ms que el M1 y con casi el mismo nivel de efecto, la curva del tiro dira que qued intermedia entre la que genera el M2 y el M1, y con una gran sensacin que permite cambiar fcilmente un golpe fuerte de lleno y uno fino en los topspin. Lo recomiendo para jugadores que no le gustan los hules de esponja medio duros, pero quieren mantener una buena velocidad en sus tiros, con buena rotacin y curvas no tan elevadas en sus topspins.
Love this one.Using it on my BH....helps to receive serves...so I feel its insensitive to incoming spin,great control and spin is pretty good too(less than Goldarc 8)..Speed is fast(less than Goldarc 8).So I love it on my BH.UPDATE(9 March,2018)--->super quality+long lasting rubber.Great for all shots,including loops+chops/pushes.
I had been playing with the Bluefire JP1 turbo on my backhand for a while now and felt it a great attacking rubber but something was missing. My UK Donic supplier Jarvis sports put me onto the new Bluestorm rubber. After a little research I went for the Z3 rubber, soft and full of control. To be honest I thought this rubber was consistent in loop attacks but lacked the final "punch" or killer shot that could be easily initiated.
When I swopped onto the Bluestorm Z2 there was an immediate improvement in accuracy, power and control,
I couldn't miss, my punch backhand shot winners were.... winners. I could chop well with this rubber and looping was a dream, the nearest rubber I could compare this Z2 rubber to, would be the Tenergy 05 although Bluestorm handles the new balls very well if not better than the Tenergy 05. Donic you have created a winner.
UPDATE! Hi All! I have been testing this rubber on both sides for a time now I loved it on FH and BH too, before that I was using M1. This rubber is faster, than M1, has a bit lower throw in some cases and feels more spongy due to the 2.33 mm thick sponge. Now I use it on both sides. Compared to the M1 in different strokes: Looping is more dynamic, easily varied and more aggressive, due to the spongy feel, riskier highly rewarding shots can be played close and far from the table. Really like FH and BH flicks. Counterlooping is the most notable feature of this rubber as it is very solid and fast. Dropshots are bit tricky, don't do passive blocks always direct the ball with small movements. Counterhits are good as any, the rubber feels a bit spongy, the throw is lower, but stable. The main DIFFERENCE is this spongy characteristic! Fine touch and passive strokes are harder to get used to, because the balls will fly further than intended. With this rubber you have to be more dedicated to the shot/touch to engage the sponge of the rubber to get the control over your shots. If you just hold your racket passively when handling the ball, you won't get any good results. But when you hit the ball correctly you can feel it sinking in the sponge and can immediately feel the control of your ball. Due to the spongy feeling you may feel like you are playing with the old 40 mm celluloid ball, but with a new 40+ poly. So to describe this rubber I may say that this is an M1 mixed with an Acuda Blue, a Rosena in beast mode, a T05 with more dwelltime and speed. Can recommend it to an allroud looping attacker, not for chopping but pushes are loaded with backspin. Excellent for different looping styles. Speedwise I was playing with a Waldner WC '89 OFF blade with M1, had to put that blade down bacause was not able to hit the ball on the table. Had to go to an OFF- blade to get the same speed. So take note, that this rubber is really one tempo faster!
