Rubber doesn't excel at anything. Decent at chopping, decent for reversing spin, below average blocking, poor on offense. Well built and up to the butterfly standard but I recommend softer, less tacky long pips or just a chopping inverted. The in between is hard to work with.
***1.3mm Red*** I've been playing with these pips since they came out in the early 2000's. For me, they're the most consistent, and controllable, pips on the market. Can overturn all spins accurately, and consistently, and shines when blocking deep off the table. Serves well, returns serves well, and can be used to aggressively attack high balls. They are NOT deceptive at all. it doesn't produce flat balls easily, and thus does not cause the ball to wobble/look weird very often. All in all, an excellent pip for the modern "off the table" defender.
Best chopping pips in the market. I got mine at 1.3mm and me and my training partner both use it and chopping is so much easier than any of the big names like P-1 Curl and GrassTecs. The pips do a good job at spin nullification so you can feel more confident on spinny service returns. The pips are pretty grippy too so you have the option of backhand smashing a high ball. This is mainly for chopping so if you like to block with pips and take advantage of the spin reversal I recommend looking elsewhere.
The Butterfly Feint Long 3 has been the most importent rubber of my career. If you are new at the defensive play i highly recommend that you start with this rubber and then you often dont need to switch to another one, because this rubber wourks well both at a very high level and low level game. I have done this and can tell you that if you start early with this rubber, the chop can become the absolute safest shot in your game.
This rubber is for the modern defender/deep chopper. It does not reverse spin, has little knuckle, as an attacking rubber, it speed makes it pretty limited. If you like to chop loop with long pips-This is a great rubber, awesome spin assuming you are using a chop stroke-the soft sponge makes throwing in a no spin shot much more controlable. Not for at the table players looking for a frictionless replacement-in fact the opposite!
I have used this 0.5 on Defplay Senso,I found the black is softer than the red ,a little slower and grippier which I prefer.Feint 3 allows a more horizontal blade angle than any lp I have tried without the ball slipping or popping up and pushes against backspin are possible
( this is usually more difficult with lp)
.Blocking produces a slowish no spin ball so aim it into the playing elbow to jam them up,this is not the rubbers best attribute so don`t get it for that,
A way from the table chopping is it`s best ability and produces heavy underspin with a very flat flightpath that is difficult to attack.
chopblocking gives heavy underspin with high control it is also very effective for this stroke.
I found that I can loop also due to the high grip however the ball travels at snails pace but this can fool opponent if you throw it in after a twiddle,they`re expecting a fast ball so backing off a little and caught by surprise,a very rewarding rubber if your prepared to work hard,you need good footwork to get into position to get the most out of it
nb:Iwould put the speed rating lower than 4 but it wouldn!t allow on here 3 is my rating
with this blade the f/hand rubber effects the speed of the pips,Inoticed this when switching between Tenergy and the classic tackiness c,around 10-15% faster with the tenergy
High priced (at least in Europe) but also high quality rubber.
You could say there is nothing very special about it. I just like it because I can't notice any disadvantage. Reliable LP with good control. Yet, some (esp. close to the table) players may feel to be more "vulnerable" to opponent's spin - related to other Long Pips.
If you want to play aggressively you might give Feint long 2 a try - I think it is more dangerous than this one.
However, I stick to Feint long 3 because of it's good control.
This rubber is suited for chopping. Contrary to what others have written, this is the slowest, most controllable long pip on the market. The player has a lot of room for error b/c of the soft sponge, which is the softest of any rubber I know of.
Spin reversal is not good. This is both a blessing and a curse. You can generate your own spin, b/c the pip is grippy. Therefore you have more control over how much spin you give back. You must be active with this rubber. Bat angle is also more important b/c the ball reacts more to the incoming spin.
This is NOT a rubber for a passive player/blocker. This IS a rubber for an active defender. It's used by Ruwen Filius and Viktoria Pavlovich.
I can also attack with it, b/c of its grippiness, I'm able to generate my own spin.
Serve return is more challenging with this rubber due to the grippiness. If you watch Ruwen Filius, you can see how he returns serve.
Finally, what I love about this rubber is how much control it gives with chopping. You can modify chops -- giving more or less -- with ease.
Im a chopper and I use it in OX black and fell in love with this rubber. I felt I cant miss a chop even against the hardest loops... no disturbing effect at all, so don't waste your money If you like to play at table or like to confuse other players with weird, wobblig balls... But I recommend it for choppers who are searching for control, and heavy spin reversal in active strokes.
The most grippy LP I've every tried (out of 12 or more LPs). Very soft, bendable, long, and close together pips. This is, bar none, THE best chopping LP on the market. It's very forgiving. You can bring back many loops with this. PROS: Excellent for chopping and spin-variation. You need to be active with it. You can't stick you paddle out there and hope to get the ball back. CONS: B/c the it's so grippy, serve return and close to table game is challenging. Too soft to hit hard with. Spin reversal is very low. You must put your own spin on. My favorite chopping LP.
