I prefer to use tacky rubber on both sides but I have trouble with opponents who use long pips. Should I switch to long pips to counter or can I adjust my technique using tacky rubber against long pips?

You can learn to play against pimples using your tacky rubber.
The main thing is to understand what is happening to the ball when it hits the long pips. The basic idea is that when you hit to it with topspin, it will come back at you with backspin and vice versa.
Then try to get the opportunity to play against it as often as you can. This will help you to get the feel for what is happening.
