I'm a pips all around player. I use long pips for defense on backhand and smooth rubber for faster offensive play on forehand. The owner recommended this rubber for me, and WOW was I amazed. I was returning slams and they were hitting the table at high speeds. This rubber is tacky slow, but paddle speed fast. So you can easily control a difficult shot (heavy under spin to forehand topspin), block heavy topspin and slams, and it can loop and slam with ease. This is a very forgiving rubber. It's worth a try. I am playing with people ranked about 1700 and having great success.
