Hi Alois and Jeff,
recently I tried two different short pimples out rubbers, both of which are said to generate some spin (the Palio Flying Dragon especially). While I'm of course aware that there can never be nearly as much spin as with inverted, with my usual technique (which isn't so very bad I think) I wasn't able to get any amount of topspin on the ball. I reckon there must be some special knack for achieving this - can you help?
With the short pimples you really need to brush the ball but allow the ball to sink into the rubber as well. The thicker the sponge under the pimples the easier this will be as well.
