It's called short pips but it look like more a medium-long.
The pips are hard and not very flexible.
It's really slow, more than a LP, also with sponge, it's the right pips for a fast blade.
I think it's the best rubber to start with LP, high control and it's possible to do everything, very easy attack The deception is very little.

This is not short or medium pips, this rubber is a long pip. The rubber provides excelent control. I play close to the table mainly chop blocking and pushing and this rubber excels in that regard. Pushing and hitting feels very due to excelent control. Not the best in reversal or deceptive effect but good enough to to put pressure and. It is possible to chop at mid distance as well, overall a great cheap rubber, recomended 100%
