Yesterday i watched the match when Koji Matsushita played against Ma Lin, in 2000. A lot of defensive players (like Joo Sae Hyuk or Masato Shiono) chop with the inverted rubber on the forehand and they don't twiddle. But Matsushita sometimes used the long pimple side to chop with the forehand, and i want to know what are the differences between a FH chop with or without long pips and what are the advantages.
The long pimples on the forehand will add some variation to the ball that they are expecting. The long pimples will reverse the spin whereas the inverted will generate its own spin.
If you can learn to twiddle and use the long pimples on the forehand it just gives you another dimension to play with.
