Just out of curiosity, which one of these would be the best for chopping? I know these aren't chopping pips but I just wanted to know for the record.

C8 is a true long pip, C7 is actually a medium pip (even though it says long on its packaging).

C8 is a bit better for chopping, but as you have acknowledged neither are great for it.

Well depends on what you mean by "chopping". I play with C8 (1mm sponge) on matsushita pro blade and I play defensively. C8 don't generate underspin on its own so when I play close to the table I usually twiddle and generate underspin with inverted or make no-spin balls with C8. But when I play in mid distance, C8 is great for defending (chopping, spin reversal, etc), I even liked it more than feint long series for that matter. Tried C7 once too, but it didn't feel as good.

I just discovered C7 and put it on my old 032 blade. It's a lot of fun!!! I love the contrast between 651 2.2mm and C7 1.0mm! The loud cracking block has this awesome smacking sound and hard fast and flat blocks against looping topspin makes this a winner for me. I'll be stocking up on this rubber.
