FIRST LOOK: First looking at gambler PK 1.5mm i noticed that the sponge is soft and flexible has a yellow color to it. Pips are about 1mm in height, all have dimples on them. the rubber is flexible and so are the pips. here are some photos. I will play with this rubber tomorrow and go into more details on how it plays.

After bouncing the ball a few times i noticed that the rubber is springy and ball bounces off the rubber quite fast, it makes "dull" sound. It is able to generate a little bit of spin, but when i spin the ball with my smooth rubber and then hit it with PK the ball almost dies, but still puts a little bit of weird spin on it.

Changed your title to include rubbers full name. Some members may not know what PK means.

First day playing with Peace Keeper i was amazed!
The sponge is 1.5mm and i thought it would be too fast but i was wrong, since it was soft the ball sank in and i got incredible control, a real cant miss feeling!
Chopping was the strongest feature of this rubber. No matter how hard the spin was the chop came back and even had some reversal on it.
Pushing i found a little more difficult, i had to push the ball up much more than usual and the ball would lose its spin.
Blocking wasn't that difficult to perform but definitely wasn't the best feature. Most of the times when i blocked the ball went in the right direction but it would have no spin on it. Chopblock was much more effective.
Looping was very easy to do, i could lift almost any kind of backspin and the ball went exactly where i wanted it to go.
Hitting, hitting was also very controllable and very easy to perform, but because the sponge is very soft it wouldn't be as fast as i wanted it to be, but on the other hand it put just enough deception on the ball that my opponent couldn't get it.
Over all Peecekeper is an awesome rubber for chopping and also looping, that has an amazing control, and just enough deception and reversal. I would suggest it for ALL+ players mid distance from the table.
