Staff Notes: (Note that –1 rubbers have more spacing between pips giving increased control over incoming spin and service returns, the –1 rubbers will have a slight decrease in ability to generate spin, but the speed is similar to standard version)

563-1 medium-pip is the best off speed blocking rubber, but it can also hit very well. Balls hit with 563-1 have some sink and some deception. This rubber performs best with 1.5, but 2.0 and thicker can be used for increased spin generation, thinner, or NO sponge can be used to promote the rubbers chopping, deception and spin variation abilities.

For its medium pips the 563-1 provides quite a significant deception especially in case of attack and pip blocks. It is not that easy to play if you are in the half distance and do not just want to play a slize.

This is the choice for ocasionaly agressive alround player with mixed rubbers. Perfect control and balance for all kind of shoots (passive and active).Troublesome for oponents due to high deception and reversal effects. Also easy to play against grass (long pimple) players according to huge attacking possibilities. Best with 2,0 mm thickness sponge.

Review it!
