- The Japanese have influenced an outstanding rubber development "Bluefire" which DONIC have successfully incorporated in the production of Formula DONIC (FD3 3rd Generation) Technology. The result: Bluefire JP01 and Bluefire JP03.
- This is a new type of pimpled rubber in combination with the proven, dynamic blue sponge but with a somewhat finer pored structure. This lends the rubber sensational feel, with maximum catapult and a very high arc of the ball. The very grippy, taut but elastic top surface rubber produces maximum spin when top-spinning and fantastic control due to increased contact on the bat. BLUEFIRE JP is a very consistent rubber and suitable for most players. The quickest and hardest sponge version, BLUEFIRE JP 01 is especially recommended for close to the table attacking players as well as those who prefer to play away from the table.
- BLUEFIRE JP 03 with a softer sponge has excellent playing qualities with optimum control. The perfect alternative for attackers as well as -power-allround- players, who value maximum control to return the ball under pressure in any situation.

Bluefire JP 03 is a really different rubber to Bluefire M3. 03 has a softer, grippier topsheet than M3, but a slightly firmer sponge (the sponge pores are smaller and tighter than M3). 03 is less bouncy, more linear, lower throw, less reactive to spin. 03 is really easy to use and fits lots of different play styles. It isn't lightning fast, but has quite an elastic effect in higher gears so the speed and spin are there if you put effort in. For me, M3 is an all-out offensive soft rubber, and you get best results if you avoid passive play. I still love it on my FH side. JP 03 is less focussed and can satisfy all sorts of needs, and is my go-to BH rubber these days. It might lack a bit of pace overall for some, but that is the only downside I can think of.

Very versatile rubber for your BH. In my opinion, is better with a fiber/carbon or a hard blade, just good for wood blades. Tested with Stratus Carbon and Clipper CR WRB (EXCELLENT!)

i have tested jp03 2.0 red ( new) . vs my usual 1.9 tenergy 05 black ( 2 weeks old ) on the same OFF blade jp03 - lower throw , -less sensitive to incoming spin , so better serve return and smash -a bit softer -easyer to make short service -topsheet after 4 hours of play, already have oxidated finger mark . - is slower, and less catapult compared to tenergy ( 8.8 speed here is overrated. is more like 8.5 speed ) -spin is also overrated . is less then t05. .less in slow strokes .. and much less on powerfull strokes -topsheet not so gripy -weight for 2.0 red - before cut 65g. after cut on off blade - 46 g . pretty heavy. its a good BH rubber.

Another great rubber from Donic to address the Tenergy series. This rubber is a nice T05 FX substitute. Sponge hardness looks the same, but the springiness is a bit less, which makes this rubber a more controlled type of 05FX. Works well on flexible and hard blades. The rubber is very linear and the overall feedback and feeling is very good. Blocks are very low and short, but they go over the net. Service and chopping is very spinny, but not bouncy, so you can keep the ball low. Smashes and counterhits are precise and linear. Loops are satisfying, no matter what is your looping style. The spin of the loop can be easily controlled, this rubber has significant dwell time, but not very sensitive to incoming spin. So looping and counter looping is a very consistent. Opening loops are very spinny, no matter what ball you try to attack. Durability is an another question. The overall manufacturing and quality is high, but since the rubber is tacky, the question is, how long does the tacky surface last. I used 5 JP series rubbers and came to the same result. Nearly 30 hours of gameplay and the surface becomes worn and the tackiness is gone from your sweet-spot. After this the rubber is still functional, but your sweet-spot becomes less lethal weapon. But you may use the sheets for training, because they last a long time. But this why I went back to the M series, because their topsheet can handle 60 hours before the first sign of wearing.

Bluefire JP 03 is a big upgrade from bluefire M3. Both have similar sponge softness but the JP 03 topsheet grips better. The JP 03 also has a much better feel (not so squishy and feels harder when looping due to the rubber biting the ball). The JP 03 mates better with more blades than any other rubber I have tested (about 15 fast/spinny inverted rubber types with 11 mostly medium to hard blades).
