Graham here -  Hi guys, I have been playing with long pimples on my backhand for a few years now.  I have gradually changed from all out defence and control to a more attacking game.  I was wondering if you can advise on the best type or make of lp rubber to attack with.  I have used 837, 755, Frustration & Hallmark amongst others but find my attacking shots lack penetration and are a bit "random".

Hi Graham,

I have seen Tibhar Grass used well to attack with however other readers may have better advice for you on this one.

Depends on what attacking type you want.
If you can speak Russian,you can search for TT Maximum table tennis channel on youtube,where Ukrainian material specialists Denis Kalachevskyi and Alexei Sypachevskyi test various pimpled rubbers,majorly from SPinLord.

Apart from that,I can tell you this:
If you rather alternate between chopping and attacking,you can also think about higher control rubbers such as TSP Curl P4 or Butterfly Feint Long III. These rubbers are most inverted-like,but have lower reversal. If you aim for more reversal,you can try Palio CK 531 A. Works well with allround blades. I do not have experience with pips used by you and I havent seen you play,so hard to say more.
