This is a very decent long pip rubber with somewhat similar characteristics to the Friendship 755. However, the C8 pips are larger and more rigid. This makes the rubber a bit faster and less controllable. With large, less flexible pips, you may expect more spin reversal from these, but they actually do a decent job of reflecting incoming spin (although not as much as Friendship 755 pips do). I had to be more cautious when returning serves with the C8s. I would recommend these to someone with an ALL to DEF blade, or someone who is an aggressive chopper. A good option for someone who thinks the 755 pips are too slow, and I would say that they're not the best option for someone just learning to play with long pips.
