Really happy with this long pimple, recently ordered perhaps my 15th sheet of neptune/955 long pip, and like the P1-R I keep up on going back to it!!!!

You might say it's "the poor man's P1-R", and at only $6 a sheet it's very affordable....

Quite grippy, and quite slow, suitable for chopping, perhaps better played with a thin sponge underneath as it offers more variety on spin.

I couldn't agree more with you. Perhaps I just would add besides that this is a nice LP if you like to play the hit/block game and chop/push occasionally.

Yeah great with active blocks and hitting! It's probably a little faster than the more expensive pimples, but it's probably the best value long pip out.


Thanks Quelis.

I got a sheet of Neptune on one of my two LP Combo bats. Will anyone ride a camel all the way over to my camp to have a hit? (There is a guy who raises camels right outside our camp - real cool) I will make my way down to Balt/DC late this month and maybe Bogeyhunter can put up a vid with me training LP Chops (I only brought the Globe 979 with me) / Inverted attacking w/twiddling.

I had too put new rubbers on last night, and I was using red Neptune BH and changed to black.

First glance I noticed it was more gripper than the red,
the red was a little smoother pips while the black was more ribbed.

I tried it out today and it felt the same, but had more control and was still very slow, I was able to chop every ball in without landing long.

Really happy with this one :D

I did 3 hours training today and no games, just learning my new setup and getting comfortable with it, even though I didn't change the brands the new rubbers felt really good. At first I had to compensate with the extra grip because my almana was new, but the neptune felt even better than the older one.


Thank you Alex and Luna

MM

Monkey, I assume you have it in Ox still. Have you tried Neptune with sponge at all? Black with sponge could be interesting! 8)

I never used to use ox and started off with 1mm then moved down to 0.5mm, I stumbled on to ox when I noticed I was the only pimple in Sydney to use sponge (joking, but it really was the case in competitions) so I settled on this thickness and learned to play with it. Before that I was using it in 0.5mm on a U4 and also a allround classic.

Re Neptune OX on a balsa blade,

I had a Player say to me "what the $%$# are you using"...I was getting good reversal and wobbly balls etc, and in the end he was just smashing his balls anywhere to get the game finished...

I believe he went home and slit his wrists and sat in a bath of warm water...lol...I have not seen him since.....he had previously beaten me 2 times with his topspin loops so Neptune enabled me to stay in the game.

He may be playing at another club.

Yep, and we wonder why the ITTF has banned half the long pips... They would love stories like this :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:
