ALLROUND PREMIUM from Dr Neubauer: The extraordinary Allround-Weapon

This rubber is even better than its name suggests. Probably the first disruptive rubber that enables aggressive blocking and even hitting and counter-looping against topspin shots. Take the initiative and put pressure on your opponent!

ALLROUND PREMIUM also excels at passive shots: The ball bounces very low, and even tends to "dive" on the other side of the table; all of this combined with excellent control. The disruptive effect even gets further enhanced after a few weeks of playing on account of the pimples becoming softer.

This rubber is also a great asset for classical defense since it enables the player to impart any amount of spin while offering a wonderful control. This way both heavy chopped balls and float balls can be performed interchangeably.

The rubber comes with an unusual geometry since the pimples are distributed vertically. In combination with new rubber components this produces an astounding effect, both for the active and for the passive game.

All in all, ALLROUND PREMIUM should take an absolute leading position and turn out to be a highly interesting alternative for all long pimple players.

OX (no sponge): Best disruptive effect while blocking 0.6 + 1.0mm: Even better attacking possibilities and floating balls

Great Pip For Blocking and Hitting

I have been playing with long pips for probably at least 10 years now and have tried many, many different types, both OX and with sponge. While there may be pips on the market that are more "tricky" (i.e. they give more spin reversal/random spin), there are few that are as good for hitting with as these. My goal was to try being more offensive on the backhand, and I like hitting with long pips, as it creates a lot of trouble for players. But I never really found a long pip that I could be really consistent with. In the past I've mostly used OX pips like Dragon Talon, 388 D-1, 755, Pogo and Peacekeeper. I also tried the Grass D Tec S with sponge, as well as Bomb Talent with sponge. I like a grippy pip, and this pip is very grippy. I can impart my own spin on the ball, which is especially handy when serving. From the first time I used it, I found that I had amazing control hitting (with 0.6 mm sponge), maybe the best hitting I've had of any long pip. And it's not a stiff pip, like other good hitting pips. As I said, it's not the most deceptive, so I found I need to be a little more tactical than before, but the improved consistency is really paying off. I feel like as I continue to use it, I will get better at mastering its properties and it will become a very good tool for me. If you use this, be sure you have an active style, passive blocking probably won't win you a lot of points unless you are extremely consistent and precise with placement.
