Stiga Vertical 55 is one of Stiga's latest long pimple rubbers, developed in close collaboration with former Japanese National Team player Masato Shino.
The pimple structure of the Horizontal 20 and Horizontal 55 is placed in a horizontal angle providing you more effective spin and variety in your game. The pimple structure for Vertical 20 and Vertical 55 is placed in a vertical angle providing extra control and stability for defensive strokes.
The sponge hardness for the Vertical 20 and Horizontal 20 are made with an extra soft 20-degree hardness of the sponge, while the Vertical 55 and Horizontal 55 use a 55-degree hardness sponge, giving the player using the 20-degree sponge more control and feeling in all kinds of defensive strokes.
The Vertical and Horizontal rubbers are made in Japan and developed specially for the ABS-ball in order to increase the spin of the modern defensive game.
