Feint 2 is the do it all pip. It's a great all-arounder. It has enough grip to vary spin but not too much (Feint 3) where returning serves becomes a problem. Hitting is also good, since it can generate its own spin.
In comparison to other pips out there, I think this one is best for an all-around game, classic and modern defense. Many pros have used this successfully. There are better and cheaper pips for passive blocking games and people looking for "disruption."

Another startling news scoop!
It seems to have an effect on lower level players blocking their top spin drives at the table using the 90 angle even with 0.5 sponge. I put on my bbc all blade which is stiff and slow to give chop blocks which appear to just dip before the looper can loop over it. It generates enough spin for a loop! and it feels good at absorbing pace. Spin sensitive so better for the chop from far away and not for serve returns. Surprising results blocking at the table once again.

Good pip to switch to from inverted rubber. I recently switched to modern defense and got Feint Long II 1.3mm on my BH side of my Primorac (vega asia 2mm on the FH) and I am liking it. It won't do any work for you in spin reversal but if you use proper technique you can get some nice chops and spins. Also fun to see people react to knuckleballs off flat strokes in response to their topspins. they just can't handle it :D

an easy to use lp, if you are trying to change from inverted to lps then this is a great rubber to try. also nice spin generation as well as control

I've read a lot about people that can't get any spin on their chops with FL2 but I think this is just a matter of technique since I get more control AND more spin with the FL2 than, lets say, Curl P1r. I'm using a black FL2 1.3mm on a BTY Korbel (however just bought the blade) and I really like all the possibilities it gives me. I can choose to chop with sidespin, no spin or HEAVY backspin by adjusting my chops a little.
PS: At first the rubber is really sensitive to spin and it's really hard to return a serve with much backspin for example but after you played with it for a couple of sessions the grip kinda wears off and the rubber becomes better. Kinda like a tacky backside rubber.
