My two forehand rubbers for upcoming season arrived:

Topsheets both feel grippy but non-tacky. Z2 looks a little 'rougher' than EL-S, EL-S looks a little darker

Set-ups will be:

1) JSH + Donic Bluestorm Z2 1.9 + Donic Spike P1 1.0
2) JSH + Tibhar Evolution EL-S 1.7 + Butterfly Feint Long II 1.0

Sponge looks quite similar. Hardness Bluestorm = 47,5°, while EL-S = 45°
Weight is also very similar (so EL-S would be heavier if it had the same thickness as Z2)

Really looking forward trying them next week. Will also compare both with my previous FH-rubber (Donic Bluefire JP02 2.0). I expect these rubbers to be a little faster and spinnier, but I chose for slightly thinner rubbers.

More to come.

Other experiences and comments are welcome!

I've tried them both, and like both of them. The Z2 feels quite a lot more lively with stronger glue feel. Both are very spinny rubbers and good speed, I think you'll like them too.

Good to read you, Haggisv!

Suppose you also tried JP2? Is Z2 a lot bouncier than JP2?

I didn't find JP2 too bouncy, maybe it is more similar to EL-S than to Z2?
