Good control.

I have rated this 837 times:) I've used both 1.0 and ox, over 5 years and I find it to be a little too fast for close to table play. I also do not agree that it is a good pip to start with as it is sensitive to spin eg serve returns even with ox. I found the sponge version to be difficult to control chops because of the springy feel. But on the FH side, it allows me to smash balls and even roll over some. Its even more effective than using SP as I try not to use normal FH strokes to cause major disruption as it still generates some spin yet is still at the very least a basic LP with its advantages. Ox is much better at producing backspin on the chop, contrary to other reviews.

I've tried lots of pimple, it was the worst. Fast, no control, only good thing is reversal on passive strokes. On active ones, it doesent generate much beackspin.

This was my first long-pips rubber, probably my last as well. The sheet I received may have been defective, but I had trouble getting a good attachment to the blade, and the rubber began to tear after one session of play. It has great deception and pushing short is almost flawless. It's high control helps in the chopping game but it doesn't provide much spin reversal The rubber really shines in blocking, it can return any shot effortlessly, normally with ankle-breaking knuckle. It could work in conjunction with a short game, but I couldn't make use of it in my long chopping play.

Review it!
