Yesterday I was playing competition against a BH medium pips Curl P2 player and mine normal tactics against inverted rubbers doesn't worked and lost the match. I'm looking for suggestions how to play against this players using LP.

Yes LP reverses spin. Simplified: Whatever spin you give opponent you get reversed spin back. If you topspin you get backspin and vice versa.

The big problem is that the MP player don't generate spin = back or top.

I've never played against medium pips but it sounds like a mix of SP and LP, so user can create some spin and block. Almost like playing against inverted with weaker spin. Hope others can chime in here?

Curl P2 is a long pip. A bit fatter than average but still the same family.

Same tactics you would use if playing against yourself I suppose.

I used P2 and now I use LP, I guarantee isn't the same.

You need to learn to twiddle. MPs don’t generate much spin so it is difficult to play against them. You can’t use their spin against them so now it is simply a consistency contest. Twiddling will let you attack balls that are risky to attack with LP.
