Firestorm combines a spinny short pips topsheet with a fast, glue effect sponge. This tensioned short pips rubber generates high spin and speed with a strong catapult effect for short pips. You can execute most inverted rubber style strokes while still allowing you to hit through the ball as one would expect from short pips.

i played with this in 1.8 soft sponge type, this is the best short pips i have ever played, so easy to loop, very fast, the best control i have used in a short pips rubber, it makes my other short pips i have tried amateurish in playability, downside on this is a little bit plastic in feeling and loud crackling sound everytime you hit hard the ball, but you will get use to it, i will stick to this rubber for a loooong time, this is an excellent rubber.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>update, this is one of the best if not the best short pips in the market today, mine is the firestorm 1.8 soft with blue packaging

Grippiest SP as i tried. Huge change against Killer Pro/ Dawei 388C-1. Blade True carbon from Donic. Thickness 1,8mm. Very good for topspin , rotation and underspin variationen.Short pips for variable attack and rotation changes. Despite big gripp not the same as backside - inverted rubber. Combination between possibites inverted and short pimpless rubber. Disturbance efect not from same rubber , but by active work with rotation very efficient and destroyable for opponent.

Lightning fast short pip rubber. (Plays 1.8 mm om BH on a Temper Tech ALL+ blade). Very easy to block and make hard pushes. Possible to do backhand topspins but of course not as good as w backside rubber. Perfect rubber for players who stays close to the table controlling the pace. Rather low trajectory. This rubber really helped me to play "my game" even better since it pays off go stay close to the table and is hard to play away from the table. Except from the low trajectory i don't find it very deceptive but thats not what i look for anyway. Makes the backhand strokes super fun!
