Hello everyone

I have really felt the urge to take up table tennis again since not have been holding a bat since i was 18. Last i played was around 2004 and i played almost exactly like Fabian Åkerström did before the ban. Attacking forehand and blocking/disrupting with my backhand. Not a chopper. I had a TSP curl bamboo P1 which now is banned so my question is what kind of long pips you guys would recommend. The thing is that i played with a sponge and what i heard is that the Bamboo P1 was not the worst of the anti spin long pips out there. Are there any long pips that are similar to the old curl bamboo p1?

FH: DHS Hurricane 8 soft max
BH: Tibhar Grass D.Tecs 0.6
I want to play like that to ....
I first tried the DHS Cloud & Fog 3 with 1mm. To fast for close table combat for me.
Now i have Dr. neubauer 0.6mm Viper. Much better close to the table but very slow .. I have to adjust to that ....
There are some more alternatives to close table LP but I don't know any 'cheap' ones.
Grass D.Tecs should be good but haven't tried it yet.

Regards Marc
