MONSTER CLASSIC: Long pimpled rubber with friction for an aggressive game close to the table.

MONSTER CLASSIC is decisively different from any of the standard long pimpled rubbers with friction. Its combination of special pimple geometry, rubber formula and sponge enables aggressive blocking and counter-attacking close to the table.

The rubber allows for either passive or active blocking against either very fast topspin shots or high rotation loops.

The disruptive effect is no longer generated by the spin reversal properties of the frictionless long pimple rubbers, now banned. Instead, it comes through a fast and wobbling blocked return which tends to stay low after the bounce. The rubber is also designed to allow attacking of any ball which has been lifted or pushed without spin.

An additional advantage is that MONSTER CLASSIC allows good control, particularly important for service returns.

MONSTER CLASSIC offers a new standard for an aggressive game using long pimpled rubbers with friction.

Quite Good

Unlike the first two idiotic reviews, this one is written by someone who has actually played with the Monster Classic over 5 months. It is probably the best long-pipped friction sheet on the market, and extremely durable - there is only a slight discoloration near the sweet spot after ~5 hours/week of play for 5 months. As it does have friction, incoming spin does affect the ball. It is supposed to. Because of the friction, the Monster Classic can produce mid-level topspin, very strong backspin, and decent sidespin on both. Because of the long pips, it can also kill spin quite effectively. Overall a very effective rubber, but perhaps not quite worth the $55 I paid.

Have you seen the video of the good doctor playing with this? The ball flies off it as if you were playing with inverted. Good luck with this if you were playing with frictionless.


Too expensive!!!!
