Donic Bluestorm Z3
Donic Bluestorm Z3: A THUNDERBOLT!
Bluestorm Z3 with its large pored 42.5 degree sponge is considerably softer.
This makes a difference. One not only feels it but also hears it. Lovers of freshly glued rubbers will delight in the sound.
An attacking stroke with Bluestorm Z3 sounds like the crash of thunder, yet the topspin player remains in full control.

Reviews of Donic Bluestorm Z3 (9)
Can't find a better medium to medium soft rubber. Good speed and spin and great for blocking. Very good on an OFF+ stiff blade. Ball placement comes very easy. Gives you the opportunity to accelerate speed when the need arises. Very good at looping, open-ups, and all in between. Really enjoy playing this rubber on my Persson World Champion 89 outer-fiber blade. Counter-attacking is great. Blade and rubber gives you the speed you need to win the point. Very nice rubber.
This was my first forehand rubber and this made my game so much better as a beginner. Although it will not suit for intermediate/pro player because this lacks speed but as a beginner this was a good thing. I used this for 9 months and it was still like the first day so a very good lifespan.(i played 6 hours a week back then) and i can recommend this to any beginner.
Staw away! I found this rubber so inconsistent on my Lin Gaoyuan ALC blade. Started off using on the backhand and it was very slow and inconsistent. When I changed to FH I still hated it. Staw away!
Z3 (2.1mm) thickness on the forehand and backhand side. Matches up and plays very well on OFF & OFF+ blades. Rubber has a great balance between speed, spin, and control. Blocking is outstanding. Ball placement comes easy. Donic has done their homework in creating the BLUESTORM SERIES rubbers (well done). For me Z3 (2.1) is a nice match for the Donic Waldner OFF & Persson OFF+ World Champion 89' blades (IMO). Nice touch and feel, good control, outstanding blocking, great speed when power hitting, and the sound is like a crack of thunder when hitting hard. Definitely NOT a slow rubber and super fun to play with. Rating it a 10 because it is a well balanced rubber and does what it is supposed to do. FYI: The rubber is medium to medium soft.
The rubber does not rely on tackiness for spin, so you need a blade that gives it good dwell time, I use TSP balsa 5.5. On this blade the rubber gives good speed and spin (I have 2.1 and max) with plenty of gears and good control. I am playing better table tennis than I have for many years. Using the bat 3-4 times a week the rubber has lasted me about 9 months, so much less time than rubbers I have used before.
