Hi Matthew,

It is important to have some consistency of your equipment so that you know whether your game is developing.

If you like the short pimples on the backhand then stay with it for at least 6 months to give yourself an opportunity to develop your game with it.

To make the shot with the short pimples, you need to hit the ball flat and at the top of the bounce.  The top of the bounce is important because you can't generate as much topspin as with inverted pimples.  The pimples will give you a bit more speed though.
