Donic Bluefire M1 Rubber Review

TableTennisDaily had the fantastic opportunity to review Donic's latest Bluefire M1 Rubber.

@Dan used the Waldner Senso Carbon blade and @Tom used the Ovtcharov blade in the review which looked at the Donic Bluefire M1 rubbers on both sides of their blades. The review looks at various techniques and a range of shots used in today's modern game of table tennis. Thanks to TopSpinSports, Daniel Ives, Tom Maynard, and Kingfisher Table Tennis Club in the making of this review. For more on the Donic Blurefire M1 Rubber visit the TopSpinSports website here.

I use bluefire jp jp 01 and 03 and love it. I think the 03 is better than 01. now I leave a question: the bluefire can be considered an alternative to Tenergy T05 or 05 is unique? Thanks

Nice review lads. I think you're right it can jump off the bat sometimes, although I think most modern rubbers can, but I'm really happy with it in general. I'll also add that the M2 is probably a better option for most.

Very interesting to see this video testing the M1 then watching the Tenergy 80 test by the same pair. It really showed how fast the M1 was and how much more spinny is the T80. Okay, it was different halls and different blades but still a useful comparison.

IMO, I enjoyed the footwork and technique of you both more than your equipment. I believe any decent rubber and blade combination, coupled with some practice, will do IF and only if, your techniques and mechanics are correct.

Tom your technique really reminds me of Yan An.

Great review, like the comparing to other rubbers :)

I personally like the JP01 version better than the M1, it is softer and more spinny with almost the same amount of speed.

Great review, please keep them coming. I am learning a lot about how rubbers and blades work.

I also play with bluefire m1 and I am more than happy with it. In your review you mentioned 1 characteristic which is spot on. How easy it is to produce a spin ball. I can not relate with your comment that it is inconsistent. I have a question, how did you experience the arc when the ball is leaving the rubber? How do you compare it with others? I ask this because sometimes my spin arcs a lot and can drop in the net. Thanks

Thanks for the review guys.

I find it interesting that you said Tom's blade was better and had more arc (and control?), as it's the fastest of the 2. The Waldner Senso Carbon is basically an old Waldner allround with a carbon layer added, and is not know for its speed or stiffness.

It would be useful for us if you could include a comment on the "bounciness" of the rubber on touch play. In my mind, that's what separates Tenergies from the rest.

Now looking forward to the T80FX review... Keep up the good work
