I tried looking for some review on this but found very little. So has anyone tried this before?
Good for blocking?

Yes, i tried this one some years ago. With thinnest sponge. I guess it was 0,5 mm.

Was good for blocking. Soft pimples. Good controll. IMHO not very deceptive.

Pips started to break after 5 weeks. But what pip didn't. :lol:

I'm not sure you understand German but noppentest.de (German forum) claims:

Noppenlänge: 1,6
Durchmesser: 1,5
Abstand: 1,4

Der Curl P-3 alpha ist ein sehr kontrollierter Noppenbelag und eignet sich sowohl für den Defensiv-Bereich als auch für ein Störspiel am Tisch. Die Noppen stehen recht weit auseinander und knicken schnell um. Dadurch kann der Abwehspieler in der Defensive leicht und kontrolliert Unterschnitt erzeugen. Ohne den Einsatz des Handgelenkes dreht sich der Ball in den Noppen aus und der Return ist fast rotationsfrei. Der Curl P-3 alpha erzeugt zwar weniger Schnitt als der Curl P-1 R ist aber dafür leichter beherrschbar.

In Tischnähe hat der Curl P-3 alpha allround Qualitäten. Dank der leicht wegbrechenden Noppen entstehen schnell Flatterbälle und für den Gegner unangenehme Flugkurven. Der Belag sollte aber aktiv gespielt werden, da er sonst zu berechenbar wird. Wegen der guten Kontrolle fällt dies aber nicht besonders schwer.

Fazit: Der Curl P-3 alpha ist ein solider Belag für alle Spielarten. Er ist somit eine gute Wahl für Spieler die zum Einen aus der Distanz oder Halbdistanz agieren und zum Anderen auch direkt am Tisch variabel stören möchten.

If you want i can try to translate it for you.

Thanks brokkie, i dont like soft pips. Last time i had giant long soft, it was terrible although speed was good cause it was slow.
Dont think it will suit me.
Though i see some top jap girls using this with great success.

Surprised to hear about TSP broken pips, I've never broken a pip on the p-1r sheets and P-2 sheet that I used to use.

I always used to prefer harder pips too, but I've completely changed my mind now, and prefer soft pips. Soft pips are much easier to control in the short game, as they bend more so you can grip the ball if you brush, and blocking against hard loops they seem to offer more reversal. I think the firmer ones seem better away from the table, especially with some sponge, as firmer pips give you more control chopping against harder loops. That's how it works for me anyway. ;) The blade probably makes quite a difference too.

I like TSP Curl P3 alpha R.. Great rubber. Never broke a pip on one of them.. However, I block and don't hit with it..

I tried this with .5mm sponge for chopping and after less than two sessions, half of the pips broke. It had good control with low deception and was predictable for the opponent.

Hmmm 2 people have tried it with 0,5mm spong, and got broken pips, another tried in OX with no broken pips. I wonder if the OX sheet is stronger? Usually OX is more vulnerable to breakage.

I was wondering the same thing.. I did play the TSP Curl P3 alpha R (OX) for about 2 months, probably about 100 matches and no pips breakage.. However, I did sell one of my sheets to a friend in California and he broke a few pips after 2 weeks playing with it... but he does hit and chop with it.. I just block..

I'd say that they are softer than Giant Long Soft.. They are fairly thin pips which helps making them more flexible. It's really a easy to play long pips rubber with good feel and slow speed..

I didn't see any reinforcement at the base... I'll check again with a magnifying glass..

No, the only reinforced pips i've ever seen are the andro chaos.
