My first long pips rubber. Very good at chopping away from the table. The spin is massive. Control is pretty good. With this rubber you can play slow and fast, with or without spin. With pushes you have to make sure the ball stays low.

Almost the same character with Yinhe Neptune, but with extra backspin on chopping and blocking. I saw many World Class player use it but for me personally, there are several characteristics of this pips which make this pips is not for everyone:
1. High throw angle, especially for long distance chopping (I use with 0,5 mm sponge)
2. Slow speed in compare with other pips
3. Takes more time to adjust it with your games. So, I do not recommend this pips for beginner pips player. You can try the cheaper pips on the market to learn the basic strokes of long pips.

Not sure why people kept praising it. I chop with feint long II for 7 years and recently changed to this pip. I admit this one is deceptive if "you succeed to chop ball back". However, the main problem is you don't always succeed. It is pretty hard to control and not forgiving when u chop with it. Balls are easy to get too high or net if you can't precisely read incoming ball span and put the blade in a right angle. Strengthening every chop against heavy loop is possible for long II, but for this pip? It would be in vain and enlarge the possibility to net. It might be very frustrating for choppers who aim to longer a game.

This review is for ox red on defplay senso:
Appearance:opaque deep red not see through,base sheet is very elastic thicker than a 388d thinner than a 911,medium soft flexible pips ribbed very high quality
A few reviewers finding this pip not so easy to master this was not my experience with the ox version,easily the best ox sheet for chopping and will make more backspin than some sponged lps,and allows you to vary the chopping angle from upright to more horizontal.very effective sideswipe and the blade can be practically at right angles to the table unlike some lps which needs a slight tilt towards yourself ,the blocking ability is good too for such a great chopping lp and if you get the ball off the bounce there is enough reversal to keep the pressure on your opponent,also surprisingly good attacking properties the grip comes into play here and allows you to place your attacks with a decent pace and again you keep the pressure on,I found that the Tenergy on the other side of the blade also helps the pip here and when hitting hard gives a little more catapult to the shot,don`t be afraid give it a go you won`t regret

Just started playing with p1r. Ahhh what a great classic style pip. It is very consistent. What I really like is you can alternate easily between hits, rolls and of course chop, chopping being it's key strength. What a great rubber to twiddle as well. Play clever, use your reverse rubber to switch sides and play the modern defensive game. The set up I've currently got is a very light set up. Hurricane 2 (hard sponge) p1r .5. the point .5 is quite clonkey, almost hardbat like. Good spin manipulation. Like most pips requires concentration and tactics, so a learner would find hard or impossible I'd say. Once mastered it's a joy to play with. Still learning after playing anti which although steady can be bit one paced.
