Hi,

Any Gipfelsturm users out here ?

I've been playing with a backside in the backhand for years and I became a gipf user 4 years ago : a tactical game changer for me, I have become a more "balanced" opponent with a slighlty toxic / passive-aggressive backhand and a (still) quite powerful forehand.

I am the tall guy in black playing from 0:00 to 05:00 in the video below :

Yes, I just recently switched to Gipfelsturm, love you control, but going to try it in Ox (no sponge) to make it a little slower and trickier.

Hi,
Don't know whether you have tried it. I have used Gipfelsturm OX before. It have no reverse at all. It's better to have a sponge on Gipfelsturm.

Without sponge there was worse control?
What with the reversal spin? Close to the table?
Far away I know better will be in sponge but close OX solution should be better.
Do you play OX close to the table? how it was?

I play close to table. Medium Pimple OX like 563 usually gives you more reversal spin than with sponge. However it surprises me that Gipfelsturm OX gives no reversal at all just like a SP rubber.

This is a little strange I think, no reversal spin close to the table on the OX version.. I never played Gipfelsturm without sponge, only on 1,5 mm.

This surprises me too. I also usually play Gipfelsturm 1.5mm. I guess that its soft sponge is part of the recipe to make the reversal spin effect.

In fact for me playing against Gipfelsturm is I think the most difficult to compare this pimple rubber with other short Pimples for sure ;)
