Hi Alois and Jeff
I have been trainning with my table tennis coach and he uses short pimples. I played him in a game but everytime I try he hits the ball it will be really shallow and low and I end up missing the ball. Also is there more spin on short pimples than there is on normal rubbers.
The short pimples flattens out the spin and makes the ball skid through. There is actually less spin than with inverted rubber. The ball will also tend to come through lower as a result.
After you topspin to the short pimples you will need to stay low and lift the next shot.
For Premium members we also have a lesson in our Match Strategy lessons on Playing Against Short Pimples.
