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.

Using it with Stiga VPS diamond touch,I think its a wrong combo.But the rubber is good.Blade I think is very poor.Or maybe I dont have the technique to use vps.
UPDATE-NOV 2017-BOTH VPS+M3 ARE GOOD.Looping monster,very good control.

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.

I played this only 5 minutes on a tibhar chila. First I took it on fh, and my first impression are : this is less spinny than an evolution fx-p and rasant powersponge, I'm a bit disapointed. As speed as the evolution, a little more than the rasant ps. Because of his less spin, I tried it on my bh, and here is the revelation : I can do everything I want, all my balls are on the table !!! A real good control. Still less effective than other, but so much more controlable, so it became more effective (I'm not afraid to make out of hell topspins). And an other good stuff is blocking with it. My blocks are very consistent and I can place the ball wherever I want. Perfect for activblock/countertop right after the bounce. I didn't test chop, chop block, serve and pushes. But sure I will buy it for my bh !

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