Why do defensive players use long pimples rubber for their backhand? Is it easier to control the ball when doing a backhand chop?
I tried using short pimples rubber to do a backhand chop but find it also quite difficult to control the placement of the ball. Normally I use inverted rubbers on both sides.
It is easier to control the faster attacking balls with the long pimples as well as the really skinny balls. The pimples absorb the spin and the speed and make it easier for the defender to control the stroke.
Short pimples may be slightly easier than inverted rubber but not as easy as long pimples.
