First time using Short Pips. Used 1.9 mm on forehand, while researching sounded like a perfect match for me, after using I found that it was indeed a perfect match for 60% of my playing style. Great control, speed, spin (coming from inverted background), great for flat hits, spiny serves, push close to the table. The remaining 40% of my style was looping which I was unable to do using my old style, throw angle is very low. Someone had mentioned on their review that it is possible to loop with this rubber however one would need to re-learn how to loop, I did figure out the technique to loop while practicing with robot, but I did not want to change my style, this new technique used too much muscle. Have ordered Solcion, will see how that works. Using a Off+ carbon blade.

Very good rubber, spin, blocking and smash. I use in the back hand, very easy to restore the heavy ball and top spin from the opponent. Suitable for use on hard wood ex. Tamca 5000 series. My recommendation is using wood butterfly Garadya Tamca 5000. Thanks

Better speed &spin vs Clippa.Fast & spinny compared to other short pips.Can be used with no problem on Off.+ blade.Must add got great quality.

nice surprise... I thought, it will be too similar to inverted rubber, but it is not the case. It reminds me to stiga clippa...raystorm is a bit faster and more aggressive, but control is still pretty high...even in max thickness. SP rubber with perfect feeling in attack, it pushes me to a next level...

The problem with review is that we usually prefer to write review abouut the equipment we succed in using it. I played on bc with stiga all around wrb and tibhar aurus sound on fc (the latter is awesome combbination)
Buut on bc it was a disaster. It is a pimple for professionals not for time to time players. So if you go for European Chamionship gor for it if you play as I do not in the main stream of professional players forgetit. In another wordd good pimple for Timo Boll if he would like to change for a short pimple. It was 2.1 buy the way or sth like it bcause Iam still in shock. Great for play 3 meters away from the table.
