Anybody knowledgable could help with choosing please?
I need it to be quite spinny (less than slick sp but more than spinny lp like p1r) of defensive priority but also ability to aggressive block/hit vs topspin and underspin attack.

Hey, thanks for the suggestion.
Is it grippy enough though? The reviews differ quite a bit on that rubber. Also what thickness?

TSP Millitall II is a rather grippy but very safe pip, with small skinny but not very tall pips. Like a shrunken lp :).

This one seems interesting. I'll see if anyone has any other suggestions.

Medium pips can be a bit fast for defense but a couple of options that may work for you are Spinlord Orkan 1.5mm or Sauer & Troga Hipster. Orkan has less spin than Hipster but is more disruptive when blocking and counter hitting top spin.

I suppose you could compensate by using a suitably slow blade (Toxic 3? Hock 3 ply?) or an absorbing sponge (who was it who made that sponge that was more like foam?), but you'd have to ask yourself - what would be the point of choosing medium over long pips? You'd have a little more of an attack, I suppose...

Yes medium pips are still fundamentally attack orientated rubbers, just with more disruption effect than SP

Wanting to also be able to fall back and Chop as well as attack I am going to experiment with some of the grippier sponge long pips like AP2 and Schmerz. Have played a bit with Dtecs 1.2mm but it needs quite a bit of skill and practice to master.

Yes, grippy enough.
OX, 1.0-1.3 or 1.4 - 1.7 mm.

I mainly wanted to become more aggressive after my serve is returned too cautiously to my backhand which often happens and I can only slice those with p1r. Also when caught at the table a block is very unstable so I thought mp would be a solution. Anyway I've decided to order P2 1.5 mm and Millitall 1.5 mm.

Another option is Tibhar Extra Long. It's a rather slow MP compared to most. Good allround, somewhat similar to Millitall.

If it's similar to millitall then it's no point losing more money on this. Thanks though.

No problem, sounds like Millitall would probably suit you better anyway, it has a touch more speed and grip which makes it a bit better for attacking.

Similar to MilliTall would be Nittaku PimpleMini, same basic concept, maybe a little softer and slightly more grip than MilliTall. On a side note I have a friend who hits quite well with his P1r, the problem is it's a pretty normal ball, just something not expected from a Long Pip player.
