The SpinLord Gipfelsturm has pips that are longer than those of most short pips rubbers but this rubber plays itself almost like short pips with the advantage of being at least as dangerous as half-long pips.
This rubber is very good for playing with spin, either flipping the ball over the table or playing a topspin. Block balls and counter-attacks are very effective and comfortable to play with Gipfelsturm and can be played aggressively with high speed or rather passive. In any way, Gipfelsturm is dangerous enough to force the opponent to make easy mistakes. Undercut balls and powerful shots are also possible, but for this Degu and Waran are better.
