Pluto - spinny short pimple rubber (1.3mm)

$9.00

Galxy Pluto is a good rubber for those who like to roll, block and hit. They are soft "raw" pimples, widely spaced and a bit longer than usual short pips.

They are very good for rolling back your opponents serve low and fast. They also flip well, allow you to block both slow and fast and smashes are quick point enders.

If you are used to very spinny pips or inverted, Pluto will not allow you to "get away" with looping or pushing long serves, you need to work with the spin, not try to cancel it so in this way they are in between short and long pips.

On a fast blade the 1.3 mm sponge seemed to have enough speed, though I would like to try a thicker sponge at some point. They do encourage a more patient game based on blocking and countering than a spinnier pip.

All in all, if you like an active short pip game you should give them a try!
