DO LONG PIMPLES HOLD UP TIGHT SIDESPIN OR NOT? CUZ MY COACH SAYS IF I DO A TIGHT SIDESPIN HIS LONG PIMPLES CURL UP...IS THIS POSSIBLE?  BECAUSE MY UNDERSTANDING ABOUT LONG PIMPLES THAT IT CAN RETURN HEAVY TYPES OF SPINS...IS THIS TRUE?  IF LONG PIMPLES RETURN MY TIGHT SIDESPIN CAN IT BE A TIGHT SIDESPIN IN RETURN?

THANKS!

Hi Michmarv,

The long pimples will reverse the spin.  If you out sidespin on it the ball will also have sidespin when it comes back.  The ball keeps spinning in the same direction.  Because the long pimples doesn't grip the ball the ball keeps going around.
