I have recently changed my backhand to short pips out.
Hitting close to the table is fine but blocking angles needs to improve.
Getting the feel of the pimples against a topspin ball can be difficult especially when it is coming to you at an angle or you want to angle the ball. This is because it has a different amount of grip to an inverted rubber and can feel like it is slipping off the pimple sidewards.
It is a matter of getting used to the different amount of grip on the pimples by doing a lot of strokes with them and especially when you are wanting to change the direction of the ball.
