The SpinLord Gipfelsturm is a totally new kind of pimple-out rubber. Although the ribbed pimples are longer then those of most long pimple-out rubbers, this rubber plays like a short pimple-out rubber with the advantage of being more dangerous. In addition Gipfelsturm can create more spin then previous pimple-out rubbers. Gipfelsturm has a very soft touch, although rubber and sponge actually are medium-hard. Therefore all strokes can be played with techniques usually used for pimple-inn rubbers, but the player still can take advantage of all benefits of pimple-out rubbers. Gipfelsturm makes all this possible with its unique shape of the pimples. The pimples are not only very long, but they are also very wide and have a conical shape. Like Keiler and other rubbers from SpinLord, SpinLord Gipfelsturm offers a strong built-in speed-gluing effect without any ''factory-tuning''. Gipfelsturm is much faster then ''Degu'', but a little bit slower then ''Waran'' and ''Keiler''..

Phenomenal short pips. Excellent control and block. Good speed and average spin. One of the best short pips rubber. You can check my rubber test (BH attack technique) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVpblHUzdLE

I've tried Gipfelsturm with 1.5 mm and 1.8 mm (max) sponge. For an attacking style I would definitely recommend 1.8 mm version. Because it is much faster and I would say that it has more control in attacking strokes. But 1.5 mm version has more deception and it is easier to perform defensive strokes. It has good speed and performs very well in passive and active blocks. Also, you can put a little bit of topspin on the ball, not so much like with the Degu. If you counter opponent spin with your own topspin you can get a little wobbling effect. In case you are defender I would recommend traditional long pimps rubber which has more deception and reversal. The only disadvantage is that pips on the edge have fallen off pretty fast.

Great short pips. More deceptive than more short pips. Good spin, control and litlle more speed.

The Gipfelsturm plays very well on active strokes. Pay attention to taking the ball of the bounce and being on time in general and this rubber will give you a good time. It's fun to play but on the other hand it's not going to win me more matches than playing with an inverted rubber. On the plus side it does not require a drastic change in technique to use and it can fire some killer blocks and drives. Also has very little problems lifting backspin. But again, it requires active and purposeful strokes.
