Castro has been specially developed to suit the following types of players:
1)Disruptive players close to the table using ox rubbers During disruptive play with long pimples (preferably in the ox-version), the Castro enables unpleasant stop blocks and excellent attacking options with the long pimple side.
The reversed pimple side, on the other hand, allows for high-rotation counter-attacks thanks to the good spin characteristics and the sufficiently high speed.
Aggressive pushing can also be performed with high precision. Needless to say, the Castro can easily be combined with the two rubbers developed by PiMPLEPARK, the Cluster and the Wobbler, and, of course, with other long pimple rubbers.
2)Modern defenders playing distant from the table with many offensive strokes Its high control yet sufficiently high speed also makes the Castro an interesting alternative for modern defensive players.
The blade provides enormous spin when defending distant from the table using classical reversed rubbers, such as the VICTAS 401 or the PiMPLEPARK Epos in its thinner sponge versions, or long pimples, such as the Curl.
When playing close to the table, the Castro’s very high control make it particularly effective during blocks, which can be performed with high precision so as to prepare counter-attacks.
