Hello everyone!

I'm very intrigued by the Stiga Vertical and Horizontal long pips.

There are hardly any reviews on how these 4 rubbers play. I also don't understand the difference between the 4 rubbers if I'm honest. Can anyone shed any light on this for me please?

Thank you!

I'm also wondering about this myself, both about the reviews and the difference between them.

There's always stuff to improve!

I have tested both Horizontal & Vertical 55 in 0.5mm thickness

Horizontal is an extremely spinny rubber but therefore also extremely difficult to handle. I've played ~10 years with P1-R but struggled to handle Horizontal due to it's grip. I really wouldn't recommend it to anyone who isn't willing to spend at least 4 hours of doing actual chopping training per week.

Vertical felt like a totally different rubber. Decent spin on chops and pushes but far easier to handle than P1-R or Horizontal. You can do pretty much anything a defensive player would want and it's easy to control. If someone wants a basic long pimple with decent grip & spin and doesn't mind spending 40€ on a LP I would definitely recommend Vertical.
