563-1 MEDIUM PIPS-OUT RUBBER with 1.8mm HRS sponge
ONE SHEET of RITC Friendship 563-1 Medium Pips-Out Rubber. Available in Black or Red. Medium Pips out Strange Effect on ball Will produce deceptive shots Can produce Speed and Spin necessary for attack Suitable for fast attack guard against loop lowering ball ITTF/USATT/CTTA approved Staff Notes: The 563-1 medium-pip is the best off speed blocking rubber, but it can also hit very well. Balls hit with 563-1 have some sink and some deception. Rubber is best for Chop, hit, block, excellent for service returns. Note that –1 rubbers have more spacing between pips giving increased control over incoming spin and service returns, the –1 rubbers will have a slight decrease in ability to generate spin, but the speed is similar to standard version.
This rubber used on the forehand will cause opponent to dump ball if they don't lift the ball on return. Use a FLAT shot when countering to create balls the dump. It takes time to master this rubber but will pay big dividends. I have actually learned to loop with it for opening shots. To serve with it, use fast long skid serves into opponents backhand corner and to their hip. They will dump a lot of balls in the net.
