I haven't played competitively with long pips but I have done a lot of hitting with them.
To block with the long pips you need to open the face of your racket up. You can almost push the ball back when they attack. You have to have very soft hands to do this. If you racket faces down at all the ball will go into the net.
To defend a no spin hityou can block the ball. Again it is all about the angle of your bat. You will need to open the racket face up a little to get the ball over the net. Because it doesn't have topspin it doesn't lift off your bat as much.
Hope this helps.
