Hi Rahul,

The pimple rubber will give you a flatter ball with less spin.  It will give you good control but it is harder to generate spin with it. 

Long Pimple will 'reverse ' the spin whereas the short pimple will just flatten out the spin.  Medium pimple does reverse the spin a little but, as it suggests, is between the effects of the short and long pimples.

You can also take a look at our free lesson on the Effects of Rubbers.  This will give you a better insight into what happens with some of these rubbers.
