Played Shortpips on my forehand for 10 or more years and played with countless rubbers... always come back to Clippa. Latest I have tried are Flarestorm and Raystorm: and also in the past, TSP Spin Pips, Tibhar Speedy Soft, Stiga Radical, Friendship 802... plus more. Clippa just seems to have it all. Great control with all the hitting gears. In other words, the right amount of grip to be controlable and easy to hit sharply with, while still giving a dead, low block. Never usually do this sort of thing, but decided for once in my life to share. Hope this is useful to someone.
