Hi Pingskills!

I've got a question. How do you determine whether a rubber has long pips or medium pips? Do you measure its length? If so, how? Thanks!laughing

Hi Kong,

On the ITTF website it mentions that Long is determined by whether the Pimple height / Pimple diameter is greater than 0.89.

In practice the long pimples can be seen by when you rub them they bend a lot more than a medium pimple or a short pimple.

0.89 cm?

Not cm, but if the Height of the pimple divided by the diameter of the pimple is greater than 0.89 then it is considered long.
