I tend to attack too much, needed to chop and push more, guy I was facing (glasses) was about 1800, I was 1581, pips are red.

You look pretty good there (and I'd put you above your current rating ;) ). Not sure if I 100% agree that you should attack less - kind of depends whether you are talking about this specific opponent or in general.

Playing style is a rather personal choice, and you need to have a certain mindset to play defensively, IMHO - you looked eager to attack, I thought.

I've used KTL Stranger 1.2mm and your video reminded me of its bounciness (for a sponged LP) which isn't surprising being that it's just about the thickest -- and easily most aggressive -- sponge you can get on an LP. Based on your playing style, i.e. close to the table; blocking; pick-hitting, I think you'd do better with OX LP.. something like Talon OX that would provide safe(r) serve returns while also forcing occasional pop-ups that you could attack with your big FH. In contrast, your Stranger 1.2mm had you making the pop-ups which your opponent was capitalizing on.

Thanks for the follow up posts, I have tried Ox long pips in past with bad results but as a fellow EJ I'm always willing to punish myself more. Any leads on where I can buy Talon Ox online?

I have a sheet of Milkyway 955 .7mm sponge arriving Wednesday which I ordered from Amazon.

In 2007 I broke 2003 for one tournament, currently rated 1731.

Tried Aggressor and KO for about a year, now back long pips, DHS C8 1.0mm.

I picked C8 because it is a faster long pip and the Dr. Neubauer medium pips are definitely a lot faster than most long pip rubbers.

Curious side note about the Dr. Neubauer brand, they produce so many anti rubbers, that must sell but I haven't seen any frictionless anti players in California or Michigan. I should probably pose that observation in the Anti rubber section.


Pips for all!

Dr Neubauer's pips haven't been frictionless since the ITTF ban on such rubbers 10 years ago.

OP is talking about lack of frictionless anti players in CA and MI, I believe, and these are still legal (by some logic which I don't fully comprehend - LPs are bad, but anti is not?).

Yep, I was referring to not seeing any, low, medium, or high players in this country playing with frictionless Anti's. My student pretty much retired after frictionless pips ban so I remember that event well. My luck, I've always played with grippy pips so the ban didn't effect my game much though I believe a less severe rule would have served just as well.
