Which inverted rubber most closely mimics short pip? Low throw, ability to punch thru spin, good for smashing and cheap?

Real thin inverted...(Bottoms out causes ball to be dead)

Real old inverted....(Richard Dewitt uses old Mark V, dead balls all around).

Perhaps some grippy antis? Like sandwind? (Never tried any, just guessing.)

For me, I found 1.0mm reflectoid to be similar in terms sending dead balls back to the opponent when you drive or flat hit...but it's not really similar in feel or speed. It was as fast as the blade because it bottomed out...which was a VKM...smash was great. It's tacky, so on thin contact you can really loop and spin up the ball, also serves were spinny. The tack will wear off and the top sheet becomes grippy (not tacky) and loses even more of it's spin sensitivity. Plus, it's cheap.
