One thing to consider is that if you are in the mid-lower levels (under 1600), then you will rarely get into loop/chop rallies with anyone because most people do not hone the skill of looping heavy chopped underspin until that level. Instead, you will get into pushing matches which keeps you at the table. I (and many on here) struggled with our identity in that regard. At my level, still 1600s, I still get into those types of matches but far less often than when I was 1400 and lower.

So, if you have aspirations of being like Joo Se Hyuk, you may be disappointed that your actual games will not reflect that style of play. Until you get to play against players above a certain level, it's better IMO to use a 0.5mm sponged LP to afford you the possibility of staying at the table, as well as dropping back and chopping should you get the right opponent. The sponge add grip, but the topsheet also is a factor. Some pips have more grip in the topsheet itself than others. FL3, P-1R, P-4 are all grippy in the topsheets alone. 388-1, Neptune, Meteorite, are less grippy. I think a great starting LP, cheap and good from 1000 usatt to 2100 usatt is Giant Dragon Meteorite in 0.5mm. Just enough grip to keep the opponent honest when chopping, good in the short game, hits, and you can pushblock and chop block well with it. My friend Fred out here has been up to 2100 level with that rubber, he chops well off the table, but it's his offense with the LPs that wins him games. No need for him to change to the more popular chopping pips. Also good is Easy P in 0.5mm, same reasons.

Even against 1700+ players, they will often push one, loop one, and your ball never gets the spin you hope for and they will keep you at the table.


Hey there! I searched high and low for giant dragon meteorite, and found two sheets in black at .50mm for 9.99 each on eBay. Ordered them and they came in today and I slapped one on my tibhar stratus defense and am in love. It feels like I can return anything, and have complete control of the rubber... I have no clue if it's a knock off or not, the sponge says its manufacture date was in 2012. I can't seem to find another sheet of it in .05 anywhere. If you or anyone else knows where to purchase more of these rubbers or can recommend very similar rubber I'd love you forever!!

They sell it. I doubt it's a knock off as it's a fairly cheap Chinese rubber. There would be little to be gained by cloning these.
