Hi there. I wanted to know from you guys and which players have mastered their rubbers best.

I’d say: inverted: Ma Long

           Antispin: Amelie Solja

           Short Pips: He Zhi Wen

           Long Pips: Ni Xia Lian     

           Medium Pips: I don’t know any

So, which players would you choose and can anyone give me some examples of Medium  Pips players?

I’ll just ask you if you know any top players who use medium pips. Do you know some?

I don't think any of the Men. Perhaps some Women do...

I would like to mention antispin youngster Luka Mladenovic,who represents Luxembourg.
Also, there is notable longpips user Carl Prean,who has been active during I think 80s,who was using shortpips on forehand and longpips on backhand while twiddling frequently and attacking with both rubbers.
There are also defenders,of course,who mastered their equipment (Matsushita,Joo Sae Hyuk,Jang Song Man... for longpips,Hou Ying Chao,Ding Song ...for shortpips)
Regarding shortpips attackers,notable examples can also be Mattias Falck (Mattias Karlsson) or Liu Guo Liang.
Regarding Medium Pips,mentioned Mima Ito is one example,and also I believe Miu Hirano uses them too. I found no evidence about medium pips being used among men,because they in fact have something from shortpips and something from longpips without excelling at something.

Lastly,I should mention Hiroshi Shibutani as the last world level OX rubber user I know about.
