Hello

Can you please recommend some spinny medium pips? To be used on BH for blocking, service return, a bit of disruption etc.

Armstrong Attack 3 is good. I've used the L version (wider pips), which gives a bit more spin. The M version (narrower pips) is probably a bit more deceptive.

What armstrong pip is closer to short pip with more disruption ?

Medium pips with relatively good spin but still the possibility of disruption: spinlord keiler
you can play with it like a SP rubber but when you block, it can be quite dangerous.

Nittaku Pimplemini. It has enough control and spin that the better way to use it is press the attack with it if you have enough stamina and the opportunity. It will catch other players out if you have soft enough hands for the dead balls.

I think pimple mini is a SP rubber, very short pimple, not half long one

The Pimplemini can't really be categorized as a short pip. I definitely does not play or feel like any of the short pips I have tried and is closer to medium pips and also depends on the sponge thickness. It is something quite fine. My other top pick would be the 563 but that one is even more for an offensive style like Ai Fukuhara.

Surprised you didn't suggest Super Do Knuckle. I've used it both middle and ultra thin and it's so much fun to play with.

I ve been playing with it for years but it is not very spinny. Its strenght is the control and the disruption when you block but...it is not spinny.

Well how spinny can you expect a medium pip to be? I'm often surprised how much spin (relatively speaking) I can put on the ball with it, and getting it to land safely on the table.

It might also be worth looking at another Spinlord rubber, Orkan or Orkan II.
The topsheet is a gripper compound than Keiler, but the pips are cylindrical and more flexible. 
For me it has, it does everything Keiler does, only slightly better, e.g. you can play it like a SP but still get quite a bit of disruption when hitting flat.

I'll take your word and I'm not going to open some to check, but that would be unusual.
