To my deepest  surprise and disbelief, Nittaku have discontinued their short pimple rubber Hammond FA Speed which I have been using for the past 7 years.  Now, I need  a substitution for it. Can anyone recommend me a similar short pips rubber?

You might get on well with Butterfly Raystorm.

 Chicho,

 If you like to hit bang and slam, try 'Blast'. Chip chip. But with too much 'grease', you may get     bubbles.

Unfortunately, Raystorm comes nowhere near Hammond FA Speed. Beautry is also discontinued. 
  I tried Victas v>101. It is too slow compared to Hammond FA Speed.

Joola tango is a good option it has a softer sponge than the ultra short pips..good for flipping and blocking hard hits..

I used this before.  I would recommend TSP Spectol 21.  They are similar the way they play in the game.

Old stock. It is not included in the Nittaku catalog.

?
Spectol 21 sponge is softer and needs speed glue. Have you tried Victas V0>103?

Hi Chicho,

You can try the Blowfish+.

I haven't used FA Speed for comparison, but of all the pips I've tried, Blowfish+ is the fastest. Medium soft topsheet with fairly soft and bouncy sponge.

Compared to: Dolphin, Spectol Speed, Spinpips Red/Blue, Victas 102, Waran, 105, Flarestorm II, 802, 802-40, Blowfish (non+), Hexer pips.

 Thanks for the input. Unfortunately, Blowfish+ is completely different rubber. I  tested it a couple of years ago. The control when hitting slow balls was terrible.
