Hi Dayton,

Falck is a unique player using the sort pimples on his forehand.  He uses them well.  The last I heard he was using Rakza PO rubber on his forehand.  This rubber allows for more spin with the pips.

If you are thinking about playing like him there is a lot to do to get a forehand with the short pimples.  The basics of the stroke are the same but you will play a little flatter than a normal topspin, more like a counterhit stroke.

Yep, rakza po is correct. There are 2 short pip players in my club who tested the rubber last year. They both ditched it really quickly because they found that the rubber behaves a bit atypical when compared to most other short pip rubbers and they both felt that the rubber is only suited for real high-level players (which is kinda ironic because I would consider one of them to be rather high level...)
