Sir, it seems grass rubbers are without sponge and directly pasted in the blade. Normal technique against short pimples are not working against grass. Pl advise..

Hi Nitin,

Grass is a long pimple rubber.  If it has no sponge then it will have a strong spin reversing effect.

Short pimples flattens out the contact but doesn't reverse the spin effect.

Take a look at this tutorial on the Effects of Rubbers.
