I play Degu on a 1.2 mm Meteor sponge, on the BH.
It has a wonderful control for a short pip and it's fast at the same time. Due to the sponge, it offers a good deception also if it's not so spinful, but, in any case, little topspins are possible.
It's quite cheap and it worth all the money.

This is the best pip 2014-2015. Good spin, good control, good speed. The best on FH but very nice on BH. Moristo is the second pip because have much speed and less rotation.
Mizuno Sa is the equal to Moristo with much speed. Degu is easy and have little deception because causes wrong shots.

Black degu 2.0 mm.
Chopping with this rubber is a dream, tons of control and spin.

Very good short pips, I use it on my Tibhar Stratus Power Wood blade on FH and sometimes on BH, and i really like it, this rubber is fast enough with good control, and quite spinny. Sponge is quite soft. Rubber looks very good quaility. The best side of this pips is attack on the table and near the table, you can ignor allmost all incoming spin. Strongly recommend to try this rubber for players who likes fast attack on the table without looping

Currently playing with Spinlord Degu topsheet mounted on a soft red dampening sponge 1.5mm thick. I cannot comment on other reviews as my set up is unique where I have purchased the "Ox" topsheet and tuck my own dampening sponge. Reason is I wanted more control. I currently play with this Joola Kool and have DHS Hurricane 3 Provincial on my forehand (red 2.2mm). Therefore I can only comment on the characteristics of the top sheet and geometry. The pimples are quite large in diameter and the topsheet is soft. I have tried the "Waran" which is a little firmer and the pimples are not as longer in my opinion. Even though "Degu" is described as a short pips its actually longer than other ones that I have tried like "802-40". Degu has excellent control and is perfect for blocking and punching which is essentially what I do. You can generate spin and it is great for spinning and hitting back spin.
These are my comments and this may differ from others due to technique and equipment setup. It definitely suits e better than "802-40 as there is more ball feeling and it has enough speed and spin to trouble your opponents. I cannot comment on deception and I dont chop.
