Has anyone tried this rubber?

The description sounds interesting, in that it's supposedly shares characteristics with short pimples, and is designed for smashing & flat hitting. Is it just a fast rubber that's not very spinny (so not sensitive to incoming spin), a bit like Bryce & vartiants?

Hmm, it would be interesting to try out this one! I wonder how hard is the sponge...

Is anyone aware of other inverted rubbers that are claimed to "play like pips out"? have you tried any?

Sponge is 40deg (Japanese scale). No I don't remember of other (inverted) rubbers making that claim.

Is Japanese scale what BTY's using? 40 degrees is pretty hard if that's the case.

I'm not sure what scale Nittaku uses... perhaps someone else knows?

Interesting design. Looks like large, tall, fairly dense conical short pips turned up-side down! Could this be Moristo AX inverted?

Definitely has the design characteristics of a speed-oriented rubber, although pip width and density is also quite high, I doubt it has spin-insensitive qualities.

I guess it's technically possible to create a less grippy top sheet that will be less spinny and less sensitive to spin.

On a side note, I'm not sure what is the benefit of using an inverted rubber that plays like SP, other than confusing your opponents...
