Rakza PO is extremely bouncy. Actually I barely control it when I tried to play Rakza PO with an inverted RPB. I had to remove the RPB rubber to control it properly.

Very true. I used to play with max thickness SP but now I´m using 1.5mm sponge and my opponents all complain "man, things are much worse now..."

very hard to play with. this rubber hard as rock and slow

Actually Waran has a soft sponge and is quite fast!



then we have different feel. I had it on Infinity and it was almost unplayable for me. I have it for sale if somebody wants it

Could be! The Waran actually uses a hard topsheet combined with a soft sponge which is tuned. Is it possible that you might have tried the Waran II? It uses the same topsheet but a harder sponge and actually comes with the same package and just a sticker on it. The sponge colrs are different; the Waran II has a pink sponge and is fast than regular Waran.


Is waran 2 more nasty to the opponent?

Still waiting for the comparison between rakza po and hexer pips

Problem is I put Hexer to my backup blade. I got a 2.1mm Hexer but I´m not using this thickness anymore. Every training session I use only the Spinpips Chop 2 (1.4~1.7mm) with an inverted RPB. With this combo I´m beating junior players I never beat before.
After Saturday 17th, the last tournament of the year, I will try to play more with Hexer Pips.

I watched a 2600+ Chinese woman who was visiting in the area take down a bunch of 2500 loopers with Spectol on her BH. Her blocks were devastating. They almost always looped her blocks into the net. My 2200+ practice partner used to use Spectol on his BH and his blocks were deadly. If you want to create a little more trouble for your opponents then use 1.8 instead of 2.0. Victas 101 is also like a premium version of Spectol that my friend has used very successfully. So either get a sheet of Spectol, Victas 101, of the new Spectol Blue as it's harder than the Red version and probably not as much spin.


I tried today spectol blue and feels a truly pro pip not as tricky and odd as zava but every ball is hard to deal.the flicks are dangerous only true skillful players will atacck succesfully the blocks sink you see the ball glide dangerously

I switched to SP from LP on my BH.  The very first short pips I tried was Patisuma 1.5 .  Since then, I have tried several short pips  (different brands and thickness) and I keep coming back to my Regular Patisuma 1.5 for my style of play.  I attack often (more than my smashes from FH) and my opponents acknowledge that they have most trouble with this. I guess, it all depends on each individual's experience playing with SP.  I also feel that I wasted my time playing with LPs for lot of years.

Pilgrim,

Thanks for taking the time to post your corrected results with Warran.  Sometimes a reader is left totally confused when posters have such different opinions.
