Z3 (2.1mm) thickness on the forehand and backhand side. Matches up and plays very well on my Donic Waldner World Champion 89' blade. Compares to T05-FX with just a little more speed and spin and creates an awesome blocking machine with the Waldner WC89 blade. Z3 (2.1mm) seems to perform a little better than the Z2 (2.1mm) on this blade (personal preference). All in all the Z3 (2.1mm) is an outstanding rubber. Donic has done their homework in creating the BLUESTORM SERIES rubber (well done). Try it you won't be disappointed.

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.
