ACS Technology is now available for pips out players! Stiga's new Radical short pips combines the shock absorption of ACS sponge for control play and the extra ACS power for smashes and attacks. Great for passive and active blocking, and power in counter and smashes. Extremely thin sticky surface with very elastic base.

Made used of other SP rubbers like the Dawei 388B & 388C1. Which help me decided to stay in using a SP. But what made me loved Stiga Radical was its smoothness in executing different kinds of strokes particularly chopping serves. Its smoothness right after hitting the ball gives me a very high level of control in placing the ball wherever i wanna place it not to mention that when theres a need to put a spin on a ball in back spin can also be done. For that i was shocked! Not like other SP used, i can play using this away from the table! Best SP ive ever used!

The best short pimple for offensive mid/close offensive players who are looking for aditional disturbing effects.High speed and control, and plenty of possibilities in serving.

This is a classy rubber for both styles (off/def). It has a hard enough sponge that you can even loop and drive with a little training. More of a blockers than a choppers sponge I believe.

I play with max on BH on LKT Will Power. If u play short pips for some time and want more deception, go for it.... only expect that u will need to adjust your racket angle and some time to get used to it. Another thing is that this rubber is tacky so it is hard to play consistent strokes with it and place the ball correctly... sometimes it just did unexpexted thing, esp. when new. After some time it looses tackiness and plays much better. I quickened this process with anti-static spray and now it is ok. Chopping and returning serves is just fine, fast drives produce dead balls or have a bit of backspin, which can be disturbing for the opponent. This SP can be more deceptive than some LP... to master this rubber and use its full potential, you need months of training, but once you stick to it, your play will be very dangerous. Update: after some time of training i must say, its the best SP i ever tried...

-Amazing control and ball placement when chopping topspins and drives. Spin reversal could be better. -Very light -Very fast and destructive on drop shots, can win easy points like that. Can easily return medium underspin serves. -Disadvantageous against choppers who use full reverse, who play on heavy spins. -Not my style of playing but it is fun to use.
