Ok... I'm not surprised you weren't very fond of 802-40 as I've never been fond of them either, and I've played with a lot of SPs. TSP has long been considered the premier maker of SPs, so I would try to find one of their pips. Tabletennisstore.US has 15 different TSP pips out rubbers and Spectol Speed comes in 1.0 - 1.3 mm sponge: http://tabletennisstore.us/p-2263-tsp-spectol-speed-short-pips-table-tennis-rubber.aspx

I think you would like this rubber very well, but feel free to read up on some of the other SPs too. The new Spectol Blue comes in a thickness somewhere around 1.5 and this might be good as well. It won't be very spinny, but will be good for blocking and hitting. Best of luck.

looking for something with control not much spin sensitive enough to open serves like moristo or hexer pips but less spin reactive

Spinlord Keiler or Gipfelsturm are good ones. The gipfelsturm has less spin than spectol in 1.8 for reference. The keiler has a bit more spin than 563 and is close to spectol, or slightly spinnier I recall. 

Gipfelsturm is the best rubber I've used for passive blocking, in so far as you can control most any shot launched at you. Heavy spins are nullified to a great degree. As a result, the attacking potential does decline a bit.

I don't like keiler for attacking on my cpen FH either. But, I like it for RPB. Not as easy as short pip for rpb but still doable. Attacking is easy with hinoki carbon blade. Gives a lot of trouble to my opponents. It's fast and the spin is like 802 when driving

3. YEO CPEN, Agrit Speed, 802-40
