Yesterday I received the Desperado/red/OX.
The surface of the pimples is not plane but can be described as plane with little mini-pimples on top. Probably some kind of grid had been pressed on the surface so that these little bumps arose.
I put the rubber on the table next to a D.Tecs/OX. TT-balls were dropped form the same height onto the rubbers: it took a longer time for the ball on the D.Tecs rubber to stop bouncing, so the Desperado is slower.
Then I mounted the Desperado on an OSP Immune Active Def via an adhesive foil.
A miserable training moral nowadays ! Just me and two other players. So I had to wait for half an hour until our senior player came along before I could play the first balls.
due to his age a weaker player. However he has always been uncomfortable to play for me because he is left-handed and plays relatively spinless block- and counter balls.
I could handle these balls very safely either by chops, lifts, pressing or smashes. These ugly times when opponents killed your long-pimple game by keeping you on the backhand with spinless balls and waiting for your faults are definitely over with the Desperado.
much too strong for me (+ 340 rating points*); he plays topspins in a chinese style with a long arm and turning the whole body thus very powerful and spinny.
I was able to block the topspins safely either with long and flat balls which could however easily be picked up by him for further topspins (so these kind of blocks should be precisely placed !) or as short blocks with slightly higher jump of the ball which however seemed to stop and then suddenly drops - a really very nice effect ! At the moment I do not have any feeling how to produce the latter blocks on demand. Alternatively it was also possible to defend against topspins by backspinning far from the table. These balls had a lot of backspin and a very low arc. At the beginning I had difficulties to bring the balls over the net. However once I got the feeling it worked without problems.
also stronger than me (+200 rating points). He acts by heavy chopping with 2 FS 729 rubbers on one of these old and really superb NSD blades. In addition he has also what we call "Garagen Topspin". As in a garage there is little place these topspins are performed by twisting the rist near the body. The result is a very strangely spinning ball which causes a lot of difficulties to many players.
His chop balls with heavy backspin caused no problems for my Desperado. It was even a feed for the Desperado. So he switched to torture me with his garage topspin into my forehand so avoiding my Desperado.
opponent 2 took my blade and played against opponent 3. His comment "Oh what warped balls !" So he used the Desperado several times on his forehand against the garage topspins. Opponent 3 failed regularly these balls which came long and jumped off the table somewhat higher . From aside I could clearly see what happened: the ball came straight away, bounced off and in the last moment twisted a little sideways and at the same time slowed down. Opponent 3 always missed the ball. As a player I did not notice these kind of effects. I realized only the stop-drop effect.
- by far the best long pimple out rubber from Neubauer since the ban of his frictionless long pimple rubbers
- significantly increased disturbing effects
- however at the same time an increased control. Usually increased disturbing effects generate a decrease in control. So a fundamental improvement must have been applied.
- very safe returns of "dirty" services
- suitable for blocking close to the table as well as for classical defense far away from the table
* a difference of 340 rating points means that chance for a win of the weaker player is 0.4% .
