Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 Avalox Mo Long Pimple review:
First impressions:

The rubber looks of pretty good quality. The only words on there are AXV, MO and 'made in China'...

The colour of the rubber seems more orange than red... I've seen a few rubbers like this, so it does not appear to be an issue.

Pimple size looks close to maximum length... perhaps a touch shorter, but does not look a lot different to 955 or TSP P-1R. Tips are rough and feel quite grippy. the pimple are a little stiff, probably a grade stiffer than the 955 and a fair bit stiffer than the P-1R.

They are spaced out more than both the 955 and TSP though...

Here is a close-up:

 


 

 
First hit: 
I've only had a brief hit with it so far, and found it to be quite nice all-round but a little faster than both the 955 and TSP. From the brief hit I had I immediately noticed it's quite good for hitting and blocking, but I'd need to adjust to the speed for chopping... 
 
During practice: 
For chopping it's faster and offer a little less feel and control, but still very good. Spin reversal is fairly good too... the stiffer pimples seem to help here. It does offer good control against fast loops as well, which I only found in the 955 before.

It is very good for hitting though... attacking backspin and hitting through spin seemed particularly easy!

I blocks well, but because it feels a little springy and fast, drop shots are not as easy...

It also seems not all that sensitive to incoming spin, again the stiffer pips seem to help here...

 
Summary: 
In summary it's a good all round long pimple rubber, suitable for both chopping and attacking. It's best feature is the control offerred on hits, and it's relatively insensitivity to incoming spin.  I hear it works very well in OX on a fast blade as well, so this will be tested next...

 

Review by kbm:

With sponge, I found they provide good control for blocking and are fairly consistent at hitting. Chopping is pretty controlled, but it takes a bit of work to get a nice heavy spin ball. It's also possible to throw up a psuedo-loop off underspin and no-spin. It's certainly a risky shot, but it's an almost guaranteed point if executed with a bit of deception.
Without sponge, they absorb power and spin better, but I felt like it lost some of it's control. Hitting takes more effort since the sponge isn't there. Chopping beyond mid-distance was not particularly easy.
In general, they're fairly straight-forward pips with good control, but provide little in terms of disturbing effects outside of what's expected from long pips.
