My preferred short pip is usually the Waran II, which has a hard sponge and is quite fast but somewhat linear. Soft sponged pips are often way too catapulty for my taste, so with that in mind I went for the Spectol Blue. Upon delivery I glued it to my Yasaka Goiabao and started goofing around with it. I noticed the topsheet was at once able to produce a decent amount of spin while at the same time being largely insensitive to it. Also, the hardness of the rubber and sponge seemed adequate. In matchplay I noticed it is very easy to hit with and very linear, more so than the Waran II with just a touch less speed. This translated to a greater control in the offensive game. Additionally, the topsheet was able to produce way more spin on the serves. Therefore, I feel that the Spectol Blue is an all around better choice, as it increases my efficiency and adds an extra weapon. Beware however, in the max version which I play, I did not notice a lot of deception. It is however, very consistent and predictable, a quality which I value greatly. Along with the Waran II this is now my favorite short pip, and I absolutely recommend it to players who value these qualities as well.
