Hi Alois and Jeff,

Yesterday I bought a new rubber and I realized that my rubber has a speckle on it. Is it different from the normal rubber? and what strategy should I play with the speckled rubber?

Thanks a lot!
Regards, Archel

Hi Archel,

What is the name on the rubber?  By speckled do you mean there are pimples on the surface?

Hi Archel,

First take a look at the lesson on the Effects of Rubbers.  This will show you what the short pimples does.  It is good for hitting the ball flat and fast.  It is harder to generate topspin on the ball with it.  It can be good for controlling the ball around as well.
