Great for pushing and finishing a point with a fast hit. Not good for chopping or giving top spin (though possible). It's really fast and can be difficult to control but it is very strong in blocking and hitting.

at first when you buy this, you'll ask yourself "why does most my attacks do not land on the opposite table?"(I use this in my backhand Chinese penhold). as time passed by, i learned how to use short pips in my backhand and anyone who tries to answer my backhand attacks always says "it's very fast". I recommend this for short plays and for the "kill". you will not be disappointed.

When I tried the Stiga Royal, I had a problem with it's control at first but when I got used to its power I had a great time with it, which meant problems for my opponents . Returning serves comes easily and attacking is easy with this

Wow 20 dollars- I paid either 30 or 25 euro which is significantly more.
This rubber is a great pips out choice. I have it with a Friendship 729 on the black side and must say it is excellent
It is fast and capable of generating enough spin- its speed is very well matched with excellent control that allows perfect placement with practice.
Its main advantage is it is always identical and when twiddling can be used to hit the ball if stuck in a tight spot from either side. There are people using it on both side and for blocking and varying distance-near and far from the table is very good. It is one of Stiga's new nano technology pips out rubbers and has grippy pips on a hard sponge.
