Sometimes, I use long pimples to deceive my opponent into thinking it's an underspin when in fact, it has no spin at all, but is it possible to be able to serve an underspin using long pimples?

Hi John,

That is one of the shortfalls of long pimples. It is very difficult to generate any spin with them.  You can get a little bit but not enough to really trouble your opponent.

What you can do is use the normal rubber side for serving and then switch or twiddle the bat.
