This is a good OX rubber, comparable to Giant Dragon Cropcircles or Tibhar Dtecs, but easier to hit with. The pips are not too stiff. My 1st day of usage went 9-2 games. Very good for chop blocking. No problems using with my carbon blade.
Easy chop blocking off the table without much effort.
One of my opponents, uses inverted on both sides, says this rubber does the knuckle ball right at the end of shot just before it hits the table, nasty.

The bad:Thick base and stiff pips means pips don`t bend enough when chopping and at times the ball slips due to this,returns a bit too high on all strokes nil reversal, The good:Good to hitting,a fast vertical upward stroke gives a knuckle ball and this is the best stroke for me with good placement and control.Can be used for an off the bounce blocking game despite the lack of reversal due to the shortness off the return,a top local league player had good results using this before migrating to spinlord pips,my test was black ox on Defplay,for me not in the same league as p1r ox that I tested next to it,teamate had loads more problems with the p1r

I'm using 1.2mm red with a Japanese sponge on a Yinhe/Galaxy LQ-2 Blade.
I chop, block, and attack with long pips and can also stand well off the table and hit with these.
Chopping offers very good spin for a long pip that has semi hard pimples, not as soft as DHS Cloud and Fog 3, but not as hard as DHS C8.
Blocking produces a flat no spin/ knuckle ball effect. But this rubber comes into its own for hitting both at the table to mid distance. Can win points no problem with this rubber.
You do get a flat flight path when chopping and its faster than most other long pips I've used. Great for mid to long distance chop or attack.
Not for a first time LP user. Certainly one of my favorites. as I use long pips to combat very spinny serves then open up attacks on either wing. One worth trying if your after speed and control.

I will try these long pips AND know i can see the positive side is very slow AND if you have good reflects you can play over the Table very well you will retorn all but take care tha angle is a litle High you will never hit the net

0.6mm Sponge. Shots mostly seem to float. Blocking can be good. Hitting is nice. Topspin is not. Spin is not really there at all.
