Hi all medium pip converts.

I am back using Warran 1.5mm on my TSP slow balsa blades as although I have found Keiler in 1.2mm works really well against stronger players it is quite difficult to do much in passive play close to the table or to climb all over slow no spin returns.

This seems to be basic characteristic of medium pip rubbers in that to be really dangerous they need lots of speed and/or spin from the opponent and can be quite mushy or imprecise in the short game especially on a soft blade.

Can anyone recommend a thin sponge spinny MP that combines better disruption against loops than a typical spinny short pip with the ability to aggressively lift back spin but also be good at soft shots over the table e.g low pushes and flips.

Or Maybe I should even try an MP in OX to counteract the soft feel of my TSP blades

agressor maybe. A bit of training but can really attack on all kind of shot. Excell in blocks. A very good disturbance for MP and also good on long defense. I'm playing with that rubber with a firewall plus blade from neubauer.

I'm waiting to have the phenomenon blade to see if I can absorb these fast top spin and return it with a low return that it is difficult to loop again. More control apparaently than FP. Any one has this blade from neubauer ?

Agressor is starting to be very popular as more video just shows up on you tube. Different strokes, slowmotion, test, review, and how to play with it with different thickness and match strategy with different blades.

Thanks for input. Looks like it may have to be agressor 1.3. Is it good for chop blocks close in and can you also create a bit of topspin by rolling over the ball SP style? I assume you can attack backspin with an open blade lifting/sweeping action.

you will find the phenomenon slower on the back hand than the FP with better dwell and good control on blocks and excellent placement. should work well with aggressor but will feel very different from the FP - I tried both bought the FP and hated it as too pingy for my style- shoukd have bought the Phen. Remember that the forehand side is the one with the logo insert in the grip.

If you get the Phenomenon I would suggest trying the Aggressor 1.5mm first as the slower more dwell blade should tame the speed problems you were having with 1.5 on the FW. The ball will probably dig into the pips more giving more effect and spin capability and from my brief trial of it the Phenomenon will allow you to place the ball more accurately when attacking.

Since switching Waran to my slowest blade I am getting far more control and spin but still with speed when needed.

When I tried the FW+ I found the ball coming off too fast for good control or much effect with any pip out rubber I tried.

Should i have more success with the 1.3 for getting small shot and long shot alternance than with the 1.5. ? What about placement right to left alternance. Is 1.3 more easy. I havethe 1.3 for the moment. So want to learn to have very good control than try the 1.5 after.

I may be wrong but short right to left, left to right alternance is better with short distance than longer one where the openant can stand behind the table and have time to pivot and fire his shot ? Also the disturbance of the 1.3 should be better for these shots.
