I use this rubber on a stiff 3-ply hinoki J-pen. It is definitely on the "spinny" side of the SP spectrum. As advertised, it has good offensive capabilities. Attacking weak returns is very easy and counter-hitting against loops and drives is also a strong suit of this rubber. As with any high-tension pips, the danger is in making controlled shots over the table. This problem is compounded by the very grippy topsheet, which responds almost like an inverted rubber to incoming spin from serves and hard pushes. If you can learn to flick and push consistently, this rubber is a great weapon! Otherwise, you will make a lot of unforced errors, especially on passive shots. IMO, this is a good rubber to use if you're switching to pips from inverted and want to adapt your strokes gradually. If you're looking for that classic, disruptive, sinking effect on blocks and flat hits though, there are better rubbers for that.

This is the first short pip I use (1.8mm sponge) and not hard to get used to it when switching from using pips in rubber. Quite spinny, able to serve mid spinned ball. Strong catapult effect due to the high built in tension, but does not feel lose of control. Ball sinks quickly and bounce low and skid fast on opponent's side table when flat hit on forehand or block incoming loop on back hand at close range. The built in tension also makes chopping at mid-long distance easy. Highly recommended.

This is my forehand rubber. i try 804-20, a bit slow and less grippy compare to vo102. Ziom Zava too soft pimple top sheet. The performance similar to normal pip in rubber term on what u can do. And u can also play your SP shot as well. The serve very good. the blocking great. This is a great grippy (Cooked) SP for your forehand. Good Speed. Good Spin. Good Control even on max sponge. Top sheet feel like TSP Spinpips. For backhand i ill go for more raw SP.
i did try DHS. Moristo SP, Thibar Speedy, Yasaka Original, TSP Spectol, TSP Super Spinpips and lot more.

Soft and quite spinny. Quite easy to control. Very fast. Spinny for a short pip. Good feeling with soft sponge and soft Japanese rubber which can he generate good spin on services.
