Best selling Medium Pips rubber in the World
The best selling medium-pip in the world. 563 has a strange random effect on incoming spin. (Note: advanced players will know what the reaction of the rubber will be to different types of incoming spin). 563 has an odd off-speed hitting quality, and has the ability to deliver some topspin. Balls that are stroked will have the players intended spin, balls that are hit flat will sink with lazy or no spin, balls that are blocked will randomize spin to some degree for a moderate level of deception. If you are currently using short-pips to cover a weak backhand, or want to throw some deception without committing to a long-pip, give 563 a try.

Nice surprise for me, good spin, good speed, well suited for blocking, fast driving and smashing.. it has typical short pips characteristics (probably due to fast sponge) with more deception than regular short pips..blocks and short flips are deadly... I use it with fast blades and it is a great combo. The best thing about it is fantastic control. It is cheap and good quality product, it is worth trying for someone who uses short pips on BH and wants more control and deception or someone who uses LP and wants more attacking possibilities.

Very disappointed by the deception which is none. The rubber reacts exactly as a short pips rubber. Very good control and stability of the strokes.

Glued on Chinese UlC,quite hard carbon blade.I find Mystery III vs Tac-Speed563 almost same sponge hardness.But Mystery III is better in speed and control.I prefer Mystery III.
