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.

This rubber was amazing on my BH for the first month then three months later is basically dead! This is despite cleaning it with rubber cleaner every time after use and using plastic sheet protectors. I play on average 2/3 times a week so expect a rubber to last longer than 2+ months especially at the premium price point it's sold at. The top sheet still feels grippy but I feel perhaps the open pore sponge has lost it's elasticity so there's almost no grip on the ball. This makes sense as the ball reacts like it's sliding in the rubber during chops.

If you don't mind changing and paying for new rubbers frequently then you'll love this rubber. However, if like me you expect more durability (at least 6 months of 2/3 times a week workouts) then find something more durable like the Tibhar Evolution M series. I'm going back to MX-S which may not have the spin and grip of this rubber when it's new but lasts at least 6 months and wears out slowly. From what I understand from a friend the Z2 wears out just as quickly. I used Acuda P2 on my FH at the same time as this rubber and it's lasted longer be has also lost much of its initial playability. Sorry Donic.... Great rubber when new by they just don't last the distance!

This rubber has little spin. I bought this rubber new. The first day I played with it, the spin was less than average. Then I cleaned the rubber. On the second day, the spin was even less. The speed is good. It is difficult to play a spin game with this rubber. The rubber does not feel soft, as advertised, it feels medium hard. I will not recommend this rubber to anyone. Sorry Donic, but you messed up big time. And I lost my money.

I bought a maximum thickness Z3, comparing to Tenergy 05, this seems a tiny bit slower and noticeably heavier, it's easier to loop spin than Tenergy05. Love the sound this rubber produces. I also played with Donic JP01 and Tibhar MX-P (maximum thickness) previously and Bluestorm Z3 is a better rubber in my opinion.
