The best spinreversal rubber after the forbidden TT Master and Neubauers. Very good to push hard over the table with.

In my opinion, the best long pips for a blocking game. Reversal is excellent with a little chop move on blocks. This are very close to TT Master Swing Back.
This pips helps you to play better!

This is almost like my beloved Hallmark Original. Very slow and much reversal in chop blocks. You can hit as well. Highly recommended.

Very good control, just like the other SpinLord pimples. Compared to Zeitgeist it's more deceptive, less sensitive to spin and has more reversal. I would say this is less sensitive to spin even compared to D.Tecs, but not as much pure reversal because of the little longer ball contact. Very good allround pimple and it suits people that both chop and block with active strokes, like Akerstrom. It's pretty much a more dangerous version of Zeitgeist.

These are very deceptive long pimples! Chop-Block is excellent! Better control than Tibhar Grass D.TecS. You can win more points with Dornenglanz due to superior control. Use OX for block/chop-block/push-block at the table. For mid distance, thin sponge (0.6mm) is all you need, and (1.0mm) for far away chop. Dornenglanze are versatile pimples and very durable if used properly. I've read here about durability/quality issue of these pimples but I never had any problems with longevity of this rubber. Every long pimple beginner make the same mistake- hit the ball way too hard , which result in pips break off especially in OX (no sponge) version regardless of the brand. Instead of adjusting to pimples beginners start hitting with max force that reduces life of any pips dramatically. Pimples with sponge last longer than without it. This understanding comes with experience. So, don't let scary review to frighten you. Learn how to use long pips instead. Dornenglanz are amazing pimples that can bring you to the glory!
