I got a sheet of short pips (729 802 Mystery III) to try on my BH and wow! I was impressed with the control and speed for the price, especially compared with typical Chinese inverted. They come in 1.7, 1.9, 2.1 mm and 35, 38, 41° hardness.

I have the 1.9mm 35° and I feel it's not fast enough to finish a point. Good opponents are able to return 3-5 hits in a row and that gets tiring [SMILING FACE WITH OPEN MOUTH AND COLD SWEAT] Granted, my back hand isn't that strong, but if I don't want to change to a faster blade, what do you feel is the way to get more speed in this series? Is harder / thicker sponge the way to go? Although 2.1mm and 41° is probably overkill for short pips on BH.

People who are familiar with short pips only please.

Double Fish 820A is very fast and similarly priced to 802. If you want to spend 3X there are numerous faster SP options out there.

Double Fish 820a being a medium pip, it's not in the same class. The 729 equivalents would be 563 or 799 but I'm not looking at medium pips right now...

Try the harder and thicker sponge. There's also a 802-40 (bigger/wider pips if I'm not mistaken). I hate to point this out but no matter how fast your rubber better opponents will still be able to return your shots. That's why they're "better". :lol:

Iskandar 802-40 is more spin sensitive which I don't want, and it only comes in 2.2mm. I said good players... not "better" :)
