1dennistt, if you didn't get a rating done in the forum ¨new Medium pips list charateristics-Help us to create a list ¨ of all the Mp you tried please do as players will be able to refer to it.

I will, I have so many new ones it may take a little time to sort everything out. The EJ virus is strong this year. :oops: So far I just have formed opinions on what I like after hitting with so many different pips. :?:

I am also looking for a replacement for Keiler 1.5mm and PP is near top of list to try in 1.5mm. Dr N Explosion also sounds interesting. You will find
longer pip MPs like Aggressor quite different to Keiler in stroke style. Tried Orkan in 1.5mm but slower not as good for counter hitting topspin as Keiler which is important for my more inverted based style in BH.

I just finished playing 3 tournaments with Power Pipes, and next up are Do Knuckle (again) and Explosion. Power Pipes is interesting to play with, like a cross between anti and pips. Sometimes I receive a heavy loop to my backhand and play a shot like I would with Keiler...the ball reverses and just floats off the table. Of course this is my fault not the rubbers, I used the wrong technique and paid for it. Had some interesting wins against players with 200-250 point higher USATT ratings. They had problems with the changes in spin with the PP. On the other hand I struggled more with lower rated opponents who give me less spin and a lot of strokes that look like they should have spin. I found those balls more difficult to attack strongly with PP, with Keiler these would have been easily attacked. With PP I was more careful not to send the ball long. I've done better in the last 2 tourneys than I did in the first one, so I am learning to use them effectively.

PP is a mixed bag for me, and while I realize I'm still adjusting to the change, I think I'm going to try Do Knuckle again for a bit along with giving Explosion a try. I'm in a lull in between tournaments, so I have some time to experiment for a bit. I still miss Keiler. :'(
