It's a normal short pimple rubber, so I don't understand why people rate the spin and deception so high, which it's not realistic. After 3 months playing as the BH rubber , I am OK with the speed, spin and blocking, but can't loop consistently. Might use it on the FH.

Very best Rubber;I have ever played with ; normally spin will be very less in pimple but in this Spin & power are too good & it disturbs the rally's & You can use in both the sides,very easy to receive service & playing counters & deceptive.I have tried in kreanga ply,Malong, & joola kool it works good in all power ply's. Control & placement are 100% accurate. If You really want to try a best rubber you can blindly try this.

These are really good pips. But there's a caveat. I use a very (very) fast balsa and carbon penhold with rubber on the back for RPB. This particular combination works exceptionally. Compared to the 802 35 degree sponge this is clearly superior. The backhand jab block is slightly slower then 802 but faster and much more consistent than any typical hard sponge Chinese pips. Basically I just have to get the paddle on the ball and it blocks by itself. The forehand is powerful and easy to execute. Because of the soft sponge I can kill low ball mid distance and spin from longer distance. You can counter-kill loops in your forehand off the bounce or mid-distance. It's not a deceptive pips; but I played my friend who is mid 2200 and he said that it's disturbing because it throws his timing off. He said that the blocks have speed coming in but dies very quickly. All in all is has a "strange" set of properties. It has high speed but high control. It can be dead or it can be spinny. I can play distance but also over the table. I rate this (in this combination) as the best pips I've ever played with.
