Schmerz – adhesive blows: Combination between the disruptive effect in defensive play and the soft topspin in offensive play.

The Long Pimple Schmerz has 3 basic characteristics that distinguish it from ordinary pimples.

  1. The pimple structure:
    The pimple heads are close and compact next to each other. This allows you to hit the balls very evenly. Even if you don’t stand optimally to the ball or don’t hit it fully, the Schmerz compensates for the inaccuracy.
  2. The pimple thickness:
    In the development of the rubber we took care that the individual pimples are thinner than with many other rubbers. This creates more control in defensive play. Whether at the front of the table or as a classic defender behind the table, the tremendous control of the Schmerz causes despair for your opponent.
  3. The pimple hardness:
    The pimple hardness is the most important component of any surface. The rubber mixture of the individual pimple heads is pleasantly soft in case of Schmerz. You can already feel this when stroking lightly over the rubber. This makes the pimples more flexible and does not break off so easily. In addition, the balls dig deeper into the surface and are returned to the opponent with a lot of rotation and an unpleasant disruptive effect. Especially when playing with the plastic ball, the disruptive effect is immensely important to put the opponent under pressure.


The Schmerz is a real wall in the defensive game. Blocking and stabbing at the table works perfectly. It produces a good amount of cut and is far superior to other rubbers in terms of disruptive effects.
In attack play, the topspin with spin is a real secret weapon. This is only possible due to the soft top rubber. This gives the rubber maximum flexibility for a wide variety of strokes.

Sebastian’s tip:
Also try the version with the ultra-thin 0.5 mm sponge. The special sponge cushions hard attack blows and still offers enough dynamics for annoying attack blows.

Flexible long pimple rubber that can also be used perfectly for attacks due to its good control. Particularly in attack, hardly anyone can outdo the Schmerz.

    I’ve used both Hellfire and Schmerz and would rate them both highly if you are a close-to-the-table defensive player. Like Hellfire, Schmerz in OX is easy to control and has low trajectory. Sauer&Troeger should supply glue sheets, gratis, for any customer who buys their OX rubbers, or manufacture the rubber so that it has a built-in glue back. It was very difficult to glue these rubbers, though eventually everything worked out.
