Reviews of RITC 755 (No Sponge) (15)
Tried ox and on two blades. On the stiff all+ blade, I found it really good for blocks and attacks. Blocks would always trick my opponents, and attacks sent receives into the net. On a more flexible blade, 755 can also chop! Chops can be played away from table, but ox lacks in spin. Overall great rubber, but maybe too fast for a defensive style. Would recommend ox for blockers and thin sponge for defenders.
In contrast its lack of attack capabilities, This Long Pips rubber requires more upper body bending and follow-through strokes in order to get the ball the bullet effect on its offensive attacks at the same time timed reversal. Slow but still manageable to increase its terminal velocity by adjusting its handle. Effective defender if the user would rather choose to direct the ball rather randomly throw it. Used as OX on a stiga carbon blade as both FH and BH.

For most people I think that the OX version will offer the best experience. The sponge can make things very rewarding or punishing depending on how it's used.
With the 1.0 sponge, the ball comes out really weird, and feels suited for distance (from the table). However, the lack of control (when playing close to the table), and
the unpredictable throw angle make it hard to play.
The 0.6 sponge is a little less rewarding but much more forgiving. and better for close to the table play.
The OX version on the other hand has the best control, with the only drawback being that the wobble effect is not that drastic compared to the sponge versions.
This is my first LP rubber, have it in Red 1mm sponge. Equipped with Tibhar stratus power defense
Its Difficult to master. Full swing is required for a wobble effect, it's definitely faster than any pips rubber that I know of.. Excellent for deception and Possible to hit flat with BH and be assured that you won't get a return :)
the friendhip 755 tack speed is one of the best pimpled that was ever created,it is very useful for my spining, as you hit harder the faster and good for total reversal.. it is not the rubber that makes a player stong but the player who is encourage to add more skill with the support of his/her blade!
Two years with 755 OX.
On Toxic 3 Black - horrible first year blues.
On Dawei GTS/R2/R5 Excellent with RED for last 8 months!
Conclusion: The toxic is a high throw bat which could be too hard to control for me at that time.
Now I'm convinced its the BEST cheap pip at least in red ox on a LOW throw bat. Playing my best TT with wins over spazy div 1 SKTTC player, no joke!!! Really understand the pip concept now...perhaps it was just technique back then but my gut feeling and Amelik! tells me that there is a difference between black and red 755 and 837 too.
it was 755 black that cause me to really practice during the night while my kids were asleep to investigate the characteristics of 755 and other pips and why i got so many pop ups with it.
oh well, for all u noob chen wei xings out there...755 red ox is a slow controllable pip that is excellent for chopping and blocking and hitting. Its been criticized for not lifting backspin but that just means its a little more low throw and u got to compensate but good players know all rubbers have trade offs.
But for 5.50 us, its only rival is 1615 and 837. Recommended for noobs and vets alike.
I am dying to retry 755 black ox and the sponge versions...what am i going to do with all my left over redd ssts and xps!

Best long pips I've ever used for attacking, or they are at least the easiest. The tops aren't as grippy so you still get a bit of spin reversal, but with the sponge underneath its not a whole lot.
But when you engage the soft grippy sides of the pips, with the sponge underneath, you can grip and control the ball well, to very easily put it back on the table, and as you hit it harder and faster, it becomes easier to do, as the sponge and pips engage the ball more.
These aren't the easiest pips to chop with, as they are sensitive to spin and have perhaps medium spin reversal. But if you can learn how to use them then you can put in some good spin variation. as with most other grippy LP you'll need to match the spin on the ball well to return fully loaded backspin chops.
But I don't have a ton of experience chopping with these yet, I only used em for one day, and what stood out was how incredibly easy it was to attack for a LP, and since I've been looking for something like this, I feel like I'm going to be sticking with these pips for a long time once I learn how to chop well with them.
I normally don't play LP and I must admit, I only bought them because I keep getting beat in tournaments by players with LP. I figured to better understand how they work and what they are capable of, I need to learn to play with them.
I love blocking and pushing with this rubber. The knuckle ball effect is amazing. The ball with come off my paddle quickly and just dive near the end line. The look on my opponent's face is very gratifying. It is possible to hit with this rubber, though I am not as consistent as I could be. Chopping is okay, though I didn't find that it spun the ball much at all. Smashing is good, but you must aim deeper than intended because the ball will land close to the net.
OMG it is spin sensitive as well!!!!
Usually very dependable against my typical lower level opponents I have confirmed that the shorter 1.5 - 1.8 mm pips, smooth, relatively spaced-out, can not take high spin loops. They will shoot up even on a solid blocking blade like my R2. It returned so well, so many spinny serves, and blocked with good depth, and even has a good wobbly effect, and attacking properties, but as I have a new training partner, I can now go through all my pips with a fine comb, er blade rather. It's good as a starter but later on you will need a better pip to keep the blocks low and on the table. Rats!
If you are set on using it because it is still effective to use, a slower blade is the better option vs the good loopers and make sure there is a heavier fh rubber for stability.
Just 2 more cents: It's easy to use and control in ave. rallies and has lower friction than pogo/837/talon so better for returning bs serves even though it concedes to high amounts of top spin.
everyone says its an attacking pip and null for defence.....well....they lied, great for chopping and spin manipulation, the speed (which IS good for attacking) makes the spin not die out in the air before the chop lands on the table. Sensitive to spin....a full chop is needed, ....great pip....not for beginners...
black OX is COMPLETELY different top sheet then black with sponge....black with sponge is far superior as black ox looks as though it is made for hardbat use...
red ox is the same as with sponge
Using this LP in Black with 1.0mm sponge with DH Hurricane 3 2.2mm forehand on a slower Butterfly Blade. First attempt at trying to use a LP with sponge. Not really a lot to add from what "Pippy" has already added to which I completely agree. I regularly use Milky Way 955 LP.
Chopping close to table was really difficult probably due to the sponge, but away from the table it was really nice and slight racket angle variations could completely change the trajectory height and spin. Blocking close to the table was pleasant surprise from the 955 which really adds a new dimension to your game if you are used to chopping far away from the table. Hitting was a night and day improvement compared to the 955 (still have to work on that though). What I really liked was spin reversal. Very deceptive rubber. Will recommend to anyone who want deception and spin reversal and decent chopping ability. Icing on the cake is that for $10 you can just keep a spare unlike Butterfly stuff.
This is a good, smooth top, friction LP. Probably better for hitting and blocking than for chopping. Great price. I do find it a little harder to chop fast loops without the ball popping up compared to other LP rubbers.
