Hi everyone,

Currently, i'm a LP chopper but am thinking to switch to SP. From the things I've heard about TSP SSPCII i find it very hard to not order sheet, but need a little guidance, and have struggled to fined any info on it at the moment. I'm very aware on the Pros and cons of sponge thickness with LP's, but have no clue with SP. For LP's, 1mm works best for me, so I want something comparable to that speed wise with SP. Is 1mm to little for SP? Any thoughts much appreciated!

BTW forgot to mention i'm looking for controlled chops but still the ability for strong attacks.

Thanks

At least 1.5 mm
EDIT: Look at my signature; I use 1.9mm for this rubber. And it’s going to be kind of different from LP chopping.

Other SP’s you might find interesting are 802-40 and TSP Spectol; they’re both SP’s that are pretty known for chopping.

I have used the SSCS 2 in all thicknesses from .3 up to the highest.

It is quite grippy and will not play like LP at all, even in the thinnest. Basically the thinner you go the slower it becomes on soft shots and the faster it goes on hard shots (due to bottoming out on the blade). The thick sponge is of a dampening kind, so it tries to slow the ball down while still allowing more spin to be imparted. All in all, I think it's safer in the thinner version but more versatile in shot selection with the thicker sponges.

I find the spin degree is still quite high in the .3 version, especially at lower levels of play.

You may also consider the tibhar super defence in .5 or .1 if you want something grippy but still light and slow.

I recall reading a professional review on Spectol where the reviewer said they could get much more backspin with 1.8 than 1.5 probably due to the pips not being that grippy so sink into the sponge is key to spin.

With a more grippy pip like Degu 2 this is recommended at its thinnest 1mm for defense e.g chopping - see you tube videos

ModernDef, if you want to try out SSPC2, look at Yuto Muramatsu for reference; he uses it with a pretty thick sponge, definitely above 1.5mm from photos. Maybe 1.7-1.8mm. Like skilless slapper said, it's really grippy so your chop stroke has to be quite fast and active, even more so than with the P1-R from what I've seen in videos.

EDIT: IMHO though, SSPC2 is pretty controlled for choping if you are able to overcome the problem of chopping very spinny topspin. Now that I look back, when everyone said that the sponge is really dampening and really slow, they weren't exaggerating; now that I'm able to control this rubber to some degree, I definitely agree with them.
