      I am No expert in this But this is my opinions. Use the fastest blade of the three.

      Then try the faster, thickest short pimples with grip for fh. Like victas, waran or 802 40.

      I think there is some effect in the other two that can cause hard balla for the opponent. Or if you so not care about effect you can use on of the other three for bh aswell.

      Since you already have black and red sorted out, I'd recommend the Victas for backhand and either 802-40 or Waran for forehand. Your blades are not exactly ideal for all pips play, but out of the 3, I'd put my bet on the Fextra.

      Sorry I didn't look closely, the Fextra seems like a 7-ply ~6mm blade. A bit thin, but should be good enough.

      If you want some longer suggestions, please see here.

      I think you should try the playingstyle before buying new blades. But Maybe you have more money than me.

      Out of those 3 woods the Ma Lin Carbon is more suited to pips on both sides but it is still not going to be ideal. If you can get a blade with a lot more hardness and stiffness.

      I think you can play good with softer blades to. Falck play with Ma lin Soft Carbon which i think is pretty slow and soft. Proably because his game is more based around backhand than forehand in my opinion. But if you have pimples on both side it is proably better with a faster blade.

      The Gipfelsturm seems like a weird wrally wide long pips! Are you going for 2-sided attack or some other style? The Victas has nothing but good reviews, I personally wouldn't give it up for mid/long pips.

      Like Lasta say, depends on how you want to play. Think victas is an offensive short pimple and gripfelsturm a medium long pimples.

      I would like to be offensive on both wings with pimples.
      But also so I can block punch and hit with my backhand

      Haha, don't worry. Short pips are built to block, punch and hit. IMO, they do that better than medium/long pips. With grippier ones like the 802-40 and (i assume, haven't tried) 102, you can serve and loop very well too. Happy smashing!

      Yes you can loop with pips, and the 802-40 would be the best in your batch for that, I'd suggest you try that on your forehand. Better for serves too. But try to get in the habit smashing or at least driving, you only really need to loop backspin.

      I agree with above. You should only loop against backspin and when you are forced to, when the ball is to low. The best would be if you could smash all the time.

      I thought that Waran would suit better in fh.
      But maybe I guess wrong???

      You already have the rubbers, try them all then you'll know which ones you like better. Put them back to back and decide for yourself. Except for the Dr. N and Gif, all the rubbers are well-praised, can't go wrong.

      Personally, I prefer the 802-40 over Waran because:
      1. Much more spin
      2. More predictable
      3. More high end power (although slower in most other shots)

      802-40 is cheap, if you get the chance, buy a hard sponge version and you might just be surprised.
