The true meaning of can do every thing like Bruce Lee's philosophy.
If you put it on off or off+ blade , it becomes a fast attack rubber.
If you put it on all to off- blade , it becomes a looping monster.
Even this is a fast rubber , but the sponge is not so hard , very easy to hit though and very easy to control. It doesn't like sticky rubber that use the sticky top sheet to grip the ball , but it grip so well when you hit into the sponge.

Easy to control , very spinny fast. Mid Range price . I recommend for all levels players .

I bought a blue max version for my Yasaka Hasha V (jpen - 10 mm 1 ply of Hinoki) because I wanted something bouncier and faster than my previous green Rasanter R 48. I was hesitant to choose a Donic rubber due to durability concerns (Donic rubbers are known to not last long). However, after seeing some reviews that mentioned the better durability of the Bluestorm series, I decided to give it a try. It has proven to be totally worth it in terms of durability, lasting 8 months with intense training and approximately 6 hours of play per week. As for the bounciness, I couldn't be happier. Due to the thin topsheet, any incoming ball, when blocked properly, returns like a shotgun shot. However, it requires the correct angle to avoid it flying off the table. The driving is great, accompanied by an amazing sound when hitting the hard rubber instead of a baffling noise. Regarding the short game, I encountered no problems at all. It is excellent for a soft touch and flicking, even though it is not a tacky rubber. It offers a variety of gears. When it comes to looping, I faced some challenges, which could be attributed to my technique or the flexibility of my blade compared to carbon blades. My professor, using a cpen blade, executed perfect loops with a combination of speed and spin, making the ball nearly unreturnable. However, I would not recommend it for beginners, especially those who focus on looping, and suggest opting for stiffer blades if you prefer more spin. On a side note, the throw angle is super low, and many users complain that it is easy to return the ball into the net. Therefore, it is more suitable for players who prefer playing closer to the table rather than at mid to long distances. Although I took time to get used to, after months of training, I can confidently say that it is an incredible rubber for smashers and hitters playing close to the table. Additionally, it serves as a great option for jpen players who are not looping-oriented.

So i bought this rubber because i wanted blue colour and according to all the reviews should be amazing rubber but in reality the rubber is okay for backhand good speed good control but the spin is nowhere near tenergy, dignics, rakza or Chinese rubbers it's still okay rubber but nothing special

I use this on my FH on Butterfly Balsa Carbon x5 blade.
Rubber is by far the fastest i have played with. It is super hard, so the ball have quick contact with blade (it doesn't stick to the rubber). I would say the spin is not that good, because of the hard rubber.
It is super fun to play with! I would recommend to everyone!

Awesome rubber. I have it on both my forehand and backhand of one of the Yinhe pro blades. Even with a Yinhe blade that costs less than $50, this rubber crushes. Checks all the boxes simultaneously somehow (speed, spin and control). When compared to evolution mx-p on a JUIC cabriolet-f, the Yinhe with the donic bluestorm has significant more control, equal amount of spin but not quite as fast. Still, with a quality stroke you can generate PLENTY of speed to finish your opponents, even on the modest blade its on. The amount of spin you can generate is lovely on serves, giving your opponents some fits. Blocks really nice with solid control and short touch play should be a piece of cake if you have an intermediate amount of skill to control momentum of your arm/wrist/hand with strokes. The great number of gears this rubber has makes it an absolute gem.

The best rubber for pro players. The best i ever had on my forehand is donic bluestar Z1 turbo.Blue in color, with max thickness, it's better then tenergy 05 in spin, speed and durability. Max thickness makes this rubber a monster comparing to any Butterfly rubbers. I do not recommend it for beginners or slightly advanced players. On backhand i use nitakku fastarc g1, which didn't satisfied my needs in speed and durability, except the good control. So i decided to have a new replacement with donic bluestar A1 for my backhand.

Wow, here is a rubber i have missed. Quite expensive, but worth every dime. The spin 9.9 and the speed 9.8 together creates magic, fast and spinny. This is my second, have the first on a Nittaku Accoustic and the second on a Timo Boll ALC. Here, on this rubber Nittaku Accoustic shine brightest, Far away from the table it is marvelous

KUNINGAS. Excellent rubber for the modern game. Using the Donic Bluestorm Z1 Turbo MAX on my forehand side and it is a monster for spin and speed with excellent control. Has a real nice soft-like touch and feel for a harder sponge. Can be very powerful and violent when needed. Matches up very well with Tibhar Evolution MXP-50 MAX on my backhand side which also has a very nice soft-like touch and feel for a harder sponge that also offers accelerated speed as needed and can also be very powerful on my inner-fiber blade. I am very surprised with the control I have with this setup. Really liking the harder sponges now. Donic and Tibhar have created two very unique harder sponge sheets with exceptional rubber top-sheets that is meant for the modern game. No complaints as long as proper technique is practiced and then used in game play. German Craftsmanship at it's best. 5 STAR RUBBERS.

So far the most spinny rubber in this price range. After adjusted for poly-ball, no rubber satisfies for serving but this one does. This rubber is recommended for skilled player only.

Quality plus rubber that does everything well from power speed to control blocking and all in between. If your technique and skills are good this will do for you. Nice rubber. All 10's for this rubber.

Price is very user-friendly. Only US$ 31 in Taiwan. Weight: 71.15g (17cmx17cm, 2.3mm ) .
Compare z1 turbo 2.3mm with Tibhar Quantum X max on the same blade :
Speed: z1 turbo similar to Quantum X.
(Quantum X speed is faster than T80.)
Hardness feeling: of course ,z1 turbo is
harder than Quantum X.
Spin : z1 turbo is similar to Quantum X .
