Hi All,

I currently use Victas 101 on the BH (short pips) in 2mm. I do alot of passive blocking, some active blocking and countering but dont open up much on the bh except rolling or hitting off serves. Since i mostly passive block and counter, is it worth me trying short pips in 1.5mm? Im afraid it might bottom out but what do you guys think? Would love to hear your opinons.

Thanks.

It depends on what you want. I think it's fine to play passively with 2.0 (I do that myself). If you need more control it might work for you.

Thanks guys! I thought thinner sponge provides more control? But I think its actually the other way...

I have been using 1.8mm.  In my opinion/game, they are perfect for passive/active blocking.

Playing 1.5mm moristo gives a lot of sink but less control

I was very dissapointed with Moristo's sink. If you want sink better use speedy soft dtecs.

Much easier to use than medium pips though and it has the same disturbance.
