The TECHNIC-defense rubber

The DONIC PIRANJA FORMULA TEC enables the player to impart far more backspin against topspin than has been possible with other current rubber technology. The pimples are faster because of their inbuild "speed glue" effect, ensuring more accurate blocking, counter attacking and variations of spin with considerable contol.

We recommend DONIC PIRANJA FD-TEC especially for this type of players:

DONIC PIRANJA FORMULA TEC is the best weapon for the technically gifted classic defender. Particularly effective in combination with DONIC'S modern sponge rubbers.

Available without sponge and with 0.5mm, 0.7mm and max 1.0mm. OX sheets have a built in glue sheet. Sponge hardness is 32 degrees.

I have been using Piranja Pips for over 10yrs now, Long before frictionless Pips got banned. Very good allround Sponge Pips: all shots are available, but I like Piranja most of all for its flat-hitting potential. No other Long pips I have played can be played so aggressively. I can attack most serves directly & go for a winnig shot, while its also possible to defend away from the table. Doesnt produce as much backspin as Grass Dtecs, but is much better for switching to attack, while Grass is far more difficult to use in attack. Piranja for me is more versatile, even if it isnt as good in the defense. Ist easier to get used to than many other Long pips, since the pips are not quite as far apart as in Grass Dtecs. A good rubber for allround defending+allround attacking.

Excellent long pips rubber. I used the OX version. This rubber can do everything well. Chopping, pushing, blocking as well as kill shots, flicks and even an occasional loop! Quite manageable compared with other long pips rubbers.

This is a very good LP for chopping. I use in OX on a flexible blade and can hit with it as good as any other LP-but my real game is chopping and defense on my bh and this rubber has been very good at this on the right blade. Only down side is the price.

I've tried several long pimple rubbers in the past, mainly Feint Soft and Bamboo Curl, both with 1.0mm sponge. Since Bamboo Curl was banned, I've been looking for a replacement rubber that was more disruptive than Feint Soft but with no discernible loss of control. 1.2mm Piranjatec is the best one I have tried and it is excellent for returning serves, pushing, blocking, and flat hitting. It's not too fast and is quite manageable. An ideal long pimple rubber for the aggressive allround combi bat player. I agree with vanjr insofar as the only real downside is the price.

Review it!
