955 is good ALL pimple. It was very easy and comfortable to chop, block and attack. I have to mention that 955 is pretty stiff and slow pimples. That's where their control comes from. I will compare 955 to its brother, Neptune.
955 is slower, stiffer, heavier, and more durable. Neptune (on pinkish sponge) on the other hand is lighter, pips are more spaced than 995 and they brake off more easily if you attack often with them. Both, 955 and Neptune in attack played like medium pips and chopped and blocked like long pips. Overall, 955 is a good long pimples for combination style. Give it a try and you will be glad you did.

the rating of a long pimple is always dependant on the playing style and combined material. This review refers to the OX version tested on Yinhe Schild in combination with T 25.
Why I rate the 955 so high is most of all because of it`s versatility. For my style of play the most important stroke is the chop block. from the many pimples I tested only the double fish 1615 exelled at this in terms of possible backspin (and also the dÂ´tecs), but the conrol of the 955 is higher and the balls are easy to keep low. My second important stroke is the empty pushblock, which I need whenever the speed of the incoming attack is to high, or as a variation of the chop-block, the 955 ist by far the best at this, the control is perfect. The third dimension that is important is the counter attack (especially in ox that`s hard to find and without ox chop blocking at the table is not possible against fast top spins like Lo Chune Tsung and Liu song perform it)
The only other pimple that is good and even better at this (in OX) is the palio ck 531 a, but the 955 is still very good at it. Quick pushes also work very well. Classic defence is also very safe and with enough wrist it creates quite some backspin.
1-2. best at chop-blocking
1. at empty blocking
2. best at attacking
quite good for classic chopping
1. at control
It is medium hard and very insensitive to incoming spin.

This is a very good rubber to do everything and anything with. I use it for mainly chopping where u get very high spin on an ox sheet. Great price to. Only Â£2
