Hi Arjun,

Spectol is a short pimple rubber.  It will give you good control of the ball but will not allow you to spin the ball as much.

To use it well you should mainly hit the ball flat.  As you grow in confidence you can start to hit the ball a bit faster but because of the lack of topspin your margin for error is decreased.

If you can start hitting the ball fast though you will find it will be effective against other players as the ball will go through to them flatter and faster.
