Blade: Unicorn
FH: Dignics 09C
BH: Hellfire X (OX)
That works very well especially for tall players who can get above the ball and play the vertical style aggressive strike.

The chops are just as effective from distance. You can heavy chop with a decent amount of back spin if you receive plenty topspin and you can chop with a flatter trajectory with less back spin and more speed which is also deceptive.

I must say when you chop hard with the pips on the forehand vertically down when the spinny topspin comes you get ridiculous amounts of back spin. Much more than with the backhand chop from my experience.

You can also play a conventional style inverted type stroke with this pip and it really catches players out because it looks like a normal topspin stroke. This I find can be done with the ball even lower than the net height. This rubber has sufficient grip to play that stroke and it goes dead and you can get a little speed.

Thanks for the video. It sounds strange but this blade and pip combination for me can do everything without too many real weaknesses.

"Thanks for the video. It sounds strange but this blade and pip combination for me can do everything without too many real weaknesses." - we have the same opinion. We played Hellfire X for a few blades. Unicorn was the best of them all. This blade fits this long pimple very well. The ball has interference, reverses spin well. We play the Hellfire X from the very beginning of its appearance on the market. There are no signs of use on it. In our opinion, it is currently one of the best long pimples to play at the table. We join this group of tibhar grass dtecs

I must say that the only weakness i have encountered with the Hellfire X is the durability of the pips. This rubber has given me absolute attacking options over the last 2 months or so. However, the pips cannot handle the constant aggressive hits i make with both my backhand and even more lethal forehand. I have gone through 3 rubbers in 2 months with the pips breaking off in the sweetspot and last night the first pip broke off again after using it for 3 sessions of about 3 hours each. I really don't think its a quality issue but it is rather frustrating.

To me the rubber is simply the best thing since sliced bread when used with the Unicorn blade but it's starting to hit the pocket having to replace the rubber once a month. Probably playing passively with simple blocks and chop blocks will add to the life of the pips but that's not where its best attributes are.

I do have another 3 rubbers remaining but was hoping it would last me until June 2021 before i had to purchase some again.
