Hi Sandeep,

Short pimple rubber tends to flatten out the spin on the ball and is used for fast close to the table play.

Long pimple rubber reverses the spin on the ball and tends to be used by defensive players that either chop or block close to the table.

Take a look at our lesson on the Effects of Rubbers which will help.
