Fakir (Joola)

Joola Fakir is an unusual long pimple rubber. Most long pimples consistently either "wobble" the ball in mid-air OR they mix up the speed of the ball. Fakir is unpredictable because sometimes it returns a dead flat ball and other times it will wobble like crazy. Unlike other long pimples it doesn't do one or the other, it does both. It is this unpredicatibility that makes it so popular. It is also reasonably durable compared to other long pimples that are notorious for their pips falling out.

Joola fakir is a long pips rubber that is a pretty standard long pips rubber, more ideal for the close to the table blocker or spinner than a chopper.

Please take notice: i believe the new ITTF long pip regulation bans this rubber.

So this is pretty old school long pips. Great spin confusion and reversal, perfect for pwning beginning players because it is so tricky. The speed and the depth of the shots can be altered easy by the great control, you can easily make balls seem like they float, or drive it at a wide angle to your opponent. Know about those older players that block at the table and use long pips to win matches? this is a rubber for them.
