Hey guys!

So I need to change my rubber in a couple of weeks, maybe even a month, and I can't decide if I should get short pimple rubber.

I have been wanting to try short pimples for a while now, but I have never really gotten the opportunity to do it. The main reason I want to get short pips is because I think that it would fit me very nicely. I used to step back from the table and do some strong backhand loops, but now I'm starting to develop a Mima Ito kind of play. Short to the table and a bunch of blocks, fast backhands, and counter-hits. 

Should I try short pimples, and just switch back to inverted if I don't like it? Or should I keep playing with inverted on both FH and BH?

Hi Lukas,

It is worth experimenting with it.  Then you will know for sure if it suits you.
