you have to know what you want in a long pip in order to play them.....the majority of long pip players look for spin reversal and the ability to baffle to opponent with little effort on the part of the long pip player. However, skilled modern defenders do not require the ability to passively block and get a point...they require consistency, and the ability to manipulate spin from a dead floater to extremely heavy backspin....this is where the rank of deception comes in and feint long 3 succeeds VERY well at this game....fire power due to the grippyness at the table and unparalleled control at the chopping game away from the table, i belive (no offence ment) that the other people who rated this pip were looking for something with much less friction and easier to play with....this is a high friction high level modern defensive long pip and a GREAT one....

Im a chopper and I use it in OX black and fell in love with this rubber. I felt I cant miss a chop even against the hardest loops... no disturbing effect at all, so don't waste your money If you like to play at table or like to confuse other players with weird, wobblig balls... But I recommend it for choppers who are searching for control, and heavy spin reversal in active strokes.

High priced (at least in Europe) but also high quality rubber.
You could say there is nothing very special about it. I just like it because I can't notice any disadvantage. Reliable LP with good control. Yet, some (esp. close to the table) players may feel to be more "vulnerable" to opponent's spin - related to other Long Pips.
If you want to play aggressively you might give Feint long 2 a try - I think it is more dangerous than this one.
However, I stick to Feint long 3 because of it's good control.

I have no issues at all with this rubber. I play classic defense and use Feint Long 3 in a 1.3 mm sponge on my backhand. My opponents are often baffled with the various levels of spin I place on the ball. You have to know what you're doing to manipulate the ball's spin with this sheet. Once you do, it is very effective.

I have been using this rubber now for a couple years. I replaced my Rapid DTechs Long Pips which gave me great reversal but I was a sitting duck when it was time to attach on my backhand. I then tried FL III - I can still chop but not as strong as the Rapid, but I can now attack with my backhand just as good as I can chop with it. Keep in mind that I played with inverted rubbern on both sides for over 20 years. Only been using pips for maybe 4 years. Rating has ramain about the same 2061. FL III is not for everyone, if you were a good chopper and looper to begining with you will continue to do so with this rubber.
