Hello coach

Recently,I watched a really rare doubles match. No player had a normal soft rubber.

They were equipped like this:

Player 1: FH antispin,BH long pips

Player 2: FH short pips,BH medium pips

Player 3: FH long pips,BH antispin

Player 4: FH medium pips,BH short pips

And there is a chance that I will play a match with some of them in a tournament.

So I want to ask: What is the diferences between these rubbers?

As a long pips user, I know well how long pips works. But I do not know the difference between long pips and the other rubbers.

Hi D K,

Take a look at our lesson on the Effects of Rubbers of some help with this.

That would be an interesting doubles to be involved with.

And what about "medium pips" ?

Your video does not involve it

And do you have any advice how to "beat fire using fire" ?

In other words,how to play a pips user using my own long pips?

I look forward to it

And...what difference is between the effects-how these rubbers affect opponent's spin?

You only talked about difference in their own spin and how the rubbers are affected by opponent's spin.

But my question was focused more on things like this:

Long pips chop played into opponent's chop = no spin,

Long pips chop played into opponents topspin = chop etc.
