Very hard to control. You definitly have to have experience using short-pips before using this one. If you know how to use it however, these pips will be a nightmare for you opponents. If not, then they will be a nightmare for you.

I use this rubber on a 7-ply J-pen blade. It is incredibly fast! Perfect for attacking weak pushes and finishing the point early. Counter-hitting your opponent's loops is also pretty reliable. Blocking is just okay. The hardest shot to execute is the short push and for this reason, service return might be difficult. If you are used to spinny pips like Raystorm, Spinpips, or 802-40, you will need a few weeks to adjust to this rubber. If you are more used to "classic" pips like Spectol and Hammond FA, it won't be such a big adjustment. Although I would definitely categorize this rubber as a "classic" short pip (what Japanese manufacturers call "speed type"), it can still produce decent spin at mid distance, so you can loop a little bit if you have to... and if you work really hard!
