Learnt BH topspin, loop and block using DHS H2..then Used Xiom VEGA Euro DF. Now M3. I would say learning BH with H2 is difficult. Technique has to be perfect and absolutely consistent. When I changed to xiom Vega Euro DF. It was so easy to do all the shots. Now with M3 it's even easier and more consistent as compared with the Xiom (I just do the shot with just reflex action and the ball goes in as compared to the other two rubber I need more concentration aspecially with the H2) . Since I learnt my BH with DHS H2 this is not a hard nor it's a heavy sponge for me. All I can say about M3 is to confirm what others have said about it... Great for looping underspin balls, topspin drive, blocks, short and long underspin push. Loads of topspin on loops and drive with high arc. I didn't mention serve because this is my BH rubber and I use my FH rubber to serve which is DHS H3 Neo. Overall an excellent BH rubber and it pays real dividends if u already have good technique. Then all BH shots suddenly become much easier to do and land. I would say if you are a flat hitter and smasher, this rubber is not for you. U must u spin to make full use of this rubber.

The BF series is the first tensor I've used with a massive range of gears. The topsheet is also the grippiest I've used in this type of rubber.
It's not overly bouncy like old-gen tensors, and behaves very well in the short game. Service spin is excellent. The combination of topsheet and sponge give a real sense of "dwell" when you hit the ball, whereas previous tensors (Acuda, Coppa, etc) just fire the ball out. Accordingly, blocking does feel a little indirect at first, and it's not as fast as previous tensors when hitting flat.
But it's looping where this rubber shines. It's a loop monster. The arc is massive, spin huge, which gives you an enormous window to work with.
This is a special rubber.

I switched to Donic Bluefire M3 max (black) on my backhand about 7 months ago from Andro Rasant Grip. I noticed the effect immediately - the dwell time increase and my backhand loops were devastating. My shots had better shape with more spin, similar throw angle but slightly less distance. After an adjustment, I found myself looping harder and faster to bring the distance back, but with more spin and speed. Chopping and serving is fine with this rubber, and blocking is a dream. Banana flicks and strawberries are pretty good and counter-hitting is easy. As a backhand dominant ALL+ player, I think I've found my perfect rubber. Setup: Bluefire M3 max black (BH), Powergrip 2.2/V-15 Extra max red (fh), TSP Swat Power.

Fantastic rubber for off+ blades very hard and very stiff...

Tried the Bluefire M3 on a friends blade. Felt like I was playing with a soft Sriver from yesteryears. ALL+ rubber. Rubber is more for all round players. Decent speed and spin, nothing extraordinary (a new Mark V would out spin it). I didn't care for it too much. You defn need to try it before putting money down to buy it. There are better rubbers (with more spin/speed) out there. Not impressed.
