Table tennis long pimple Schmerz
Painful blows with the Schmerz: The ideal 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 pimples structure:
The pimples heads are close together and compact. This allows you to hit the balls very evenly. Even if you are not standing optimally to the ball or do not hit the ball fully, the Schmerz automatically compensates for the inaccuracy.
2. The pimples thickness:
In the development of Schmerz, we have made sure that the pimples are thinner than on 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 will make your opponent desperate.
3. The pimples hardness:
The pimples hardness is the most important component of any rubber. The rubber compound of the individual pimples heads is pleasantly soft. You can already feel this when you lightly stroke the rubber. This makes the pimples more flexible and prevents them from breaking off so easily. In addition, the balls dig deeper into the rubber and are played back to the opponent with a lot of rotation and an unpleasant disturbing effect. Especially when playing with the plastic ball, the disruptive effect is immensely important in order to put the opponent under pressure.
These are the strengths of the Long pimple Schmerz:
The Schmerz is a real wall in defensive play. Blocking and stabbing at the table works perfectly. At the same time it produces a lot of cut and is vastly superior to other rubbers in terms of disruptive effect.
In attacking play topspin with spin is a real secret weapon. This is only possible because of the soft top rubber. This gives the rubber maximum flexibility for different strokes.
Also try the version with the ultra-thin 0.5 mm sponge. The special sponge dampens hard attacking shots and still offers enough dynamics for disturbing attacking shots.
Flexible long pimples rubber which can be used perfectly for attacking shots due to its good control. Especially when it comes to rotation, hardly anyone can beat 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.
