Bought a black OX version and paired it with a mid-soft 1.0mm custom kokutaku sponge and water-glued it on a Donier Defensive blade(speed=Def+). The pips were vertically aligned, diameter on the top was slightly smaller than 802-40, shape of pips were trapezoid from the base to the middle and cylindrical from the middle to the top, surface of the top was bald (no threads). Pips were not too soft nor too hard, quite insensitive to incoming top spin when blocking, but still able to do a half-decent loop with mild top spin at mid distance. However, not much spin could be imparted when chopping or serving. The strength of this rubber was blocking and flat hitting, ball was loaded with reasonable speed and excellent placement in blocking or flat hitting, even on a thin sponge and mid-slow defensive blade. Ball came with low-flat trajectory when blocking against strong top spin at close range and roll lift/loop against back spin ball. Recommended for pips hitter who may also roll loop sometimes and player who like blocking at close game.
