This is a very deceptive rubber, very good control in blocking with a little reversal. It has one only problem, is impossible return backspin on undecut service of your opponent: you can return a no spin ball with very low and flat trajectory. If you want to open every type of services with flicks or little loops this is the rubber for you!!

This is very popular in Korea, where I saw many players with it. In most respects, it is a fairly straight-forward short pip, like Spectol. Where it differs is in two respects. First, it is quite tacky when you first use it. Second, it is a lot more funky than Spectol. It can generate reversal. This is almost a medium pip. I'd say this is a good pip if you're looking for something just a little more disturbing than average, yet you still want to have good control and the ability to impart spin (unlike most medium pips, which don't allow you to give much spin). I also like that you can buy this in all thicknesses. I used it in 1.3mm and chopped with it. However, even in 2.0mm it is still quite funky, especially if you have a hard, stiff blade.

Review it!
