I'm penholder. Use H3 Neo, Skyline TG3 Neo, T05FX, T05, ELS, Fastarc G1. A few month ago I try antispin scandal & long pips dawei 388D1 but not suite my style. I try my friend rubber 802-40 and feel good. With add a few dollar, I try 802-40 Mystery III (not normal 802-40) and I can feel this rubber have a lot of potential. No issue if user with normal pip in want to try this rubber, easy to use. This rubber cost USD 10 only at my country and worth to try. It still grip and still have a spin for loop. for me, this rubber very good for push, chop, hit, drive, place, counter attack soft active block. Have a spiny serve. I feel it more consistent than I use a tensor rubber. More consistent, less error, more control. I use 2.2mm thickness. You can play like the normal pip in rubber with advantage of short pip rubber. The rule to use this rubber, you cannot fight opponent with your strong loop because the topspin is not quite strong. You need to control the placement and height of your ball. Big problem for your your opponent if your keep your ball low, ether short, medium or long at the opponent table, because of sink effect and less spin. But, if your ball heigh, you opponent will love to attack your ball because of lack of spin. Remember, to use this rubber, always keep your ball low and your opponent will hate you more.
