I think this is a great alternative to Tenergy, in fact it is grippier and with the softer sponge produces a great pop sound. Very fun to loop with as well as push and chop. Great for serves and the short game too. I really like the BlueFire series and think everyone could find one with the right sponge density for their game. If you prefer a Hurricane 3 alternative then go with JP01 Turbo on your forehand and smash away!
