TSP Curl P1R OX
This is the OX version which does not have sponge.
This is the revised version of TSP Curl P1R which was once banned by ITTF. P1R has the longest and softest pips among the TSP Curl rubbers produces very deceptive spins and actions after bouncing. The best long pips rubbers to generate maximum underspin while cutting a top spin ball. The TSP Curl P1R is for active modern defenders and choppers.
It is not a forgiving rubber for a beginner. Start your chopping game with TSP Curl P3 before migrating to TSP Curl P1R.
TSP Curl P-1R, a long pimple out rubber with profiled pimple surface. The thin pimples made out of soft rubber, support the possibility to produce dangerous defensive shots. It is possible to bring in your own chopping variation, which almost all professional players prefer.

Reviews of TSP Curl P1R OX (46)
1. High throw angle, especially for long distance chopping (I use with 0,5 mm sponge)
2. Slow speed in compare with other pips
3. Takes more time to adjust it with your games. So, I do not recommend this pips for beginner pips player. You can try the cheaper pips on the market to learn the basic strokes of long pips.
most sensitive to spin,
produces most backpisn using chop movment vs topspin,
all strokes like lift, side swipe, hit with good control and consistancy
i have tested more or less 20 other OX LP's (eg. C&F3, Grass d.tec, 388D-1, C8, Meteorite, Talon etc)
and i always come back to p1r, cause it's still perfect, best for mid-far from table, decent is close.
for me is a good allrounder, u can do all with it, and really it isnt so hard to use (grass has much less control), speed is perfect (not too slow, not too fast)
for each defender most important is consitancy and control and this pip provides it, in close to the table u can play safe and still prettty aggresive (using wide angles)
Overall it works great on my MP.
Appearance:opaque deep red not see through,base sheet is very elastic thicker than a 388d thinner than a 911,medium soft flexible pips ribbed very high quality
A few reviewers finding this pip not so easy to master this was not my experience with the ox version,easily the best ox sheet for chopping and will make more backspin than some sponged lps,and allows you to vary the chopping angle from upright to more horizontal.very effective sideswipe and the blade can be practically at right angles to the table unlike some lps which needs a slight tilt towards yourself ,the blocking ability is good too for such a great chopping lp and if you get the ball off the bounce there is enough reversal to keep the pressure on your opponent,also surprisingly good attacking properties the grip comes into play here and allows you to place your attacks with a decent pace and again you keep the pressure on,I found that the Tenergy on the other side of the blade also helps the pip here and when hitting hard gives a little more catapult to the shot,don`t be afraid give it a go you won`t regret
I cant make a good review because i dont play pips at all but what i can explain are the issues when trying to play with this rubber on BH. During a NY and Xmas break i did try for 2 weeks to be a chopper and it did not go all 2 well :).
My first problem was a chopping motion on BH, in my mind it was very hard to do so because i wanted to top spin every single ball. Ok that was corrected sort of easy and quick.
Second problem was height of the returning ball. It got better in second week but not even close to a height of a good chopper. Back spin was ok which is about only thing i could do.
3rd and the biggest problem was positioning away from the table. When looping most people hit balls at the highest position so they adjust their distance from the table accordingly and hits come probably at the height of their shoulders of FH and slightly lower on BH. Well that distance does not work on BH chops because ball is 2 high for me. Maybe good chopper could chop from my regular distance but i could not. This problem remained for 2 weeks with very little improvement.
If you want to change from regular rubber (inverted) to pips be ready to put in some time and think about it deeply before you go for it :). In my opinion it would take 2 wing loopper at least 7-8 months of quality training to convert and become semi decent chopper.
All in all i dont regret it for a second trying but i think i wont be back to pips any time soon :).
I hope this helps guys and if you want to find out more about my difficulties (you thinking of doing it yourself) feel free to PM.
Enjoy TT, have fun :)
I,m now mid september and finally discover how to hit effetively with this rubber. I used to hit like inverted and din't work to often. It was not stable with a lot of shot outside the table until now. I trained to hit with Curl P3 with a friend who is a blocker for an hour and found a way to hit effetively. I return then to my normal rubbers pr-1 and it work even better. iI discover that I need to hit with my blade being more vertcal the bat being at the top contrary to where before I was hitting with the blade like inverted. The bat was on the side with the hit being from back low toward the front high and a brush stroke. Now the hit is more back a little high going forward with a pendulum movement forwarded to the front finishing high up. I think that the pimple algned horizotal to the racket grip the ball better where the ball before was kind of slipping of my racket. I hit the ball hard right after the bounced if its short and high and hit more slower when the ball curve is going down because the ball is more top spin at the end of the table. The rubber get the spin of the ball and returned it with a very staight, rapid and low and floating trajectory. A killer shot that the opponent has problem to return without poping it.
