What is a good beginer SP rubber?

I am thinking of putting a sheet on the BH just to fool around with it sometimes.

What would be a low price blade to go along with the SP rubber?

I am looking at a low priced one, since this racket (once assembled) is for recreational use only and will also be shared around a lot with other family members/friends/colleagues.

I think Brian Pace is using TSP Spectol, which are great short pips. I also recommend Joola Tango Ultra.

RITC 802-40 is also very popular, and quite inexpensive if you are just experimenting.

Cole Ely has it here: http://www.colestt.com/

I did put in an order. I was not aware of that web site, so thanks for that too.

I think you asked this question twice a few minutes apart. Here's my response to the other one

This question is for short pips. I just wanted to keep the threads about SP and LP different, so created 2 threads.

Re: beginer SP rubber

Sorry about that, I misread it. For short pips (as well as inverted for players who practice regularly) I recommend getting top-of-the-line pips, just like the top players. It's the racket that shouldn't be too fast except for advanced players. I believe Butterfly's Speedy P.O. is one of the more popular brands among top pips-out players. (I don't know the non-Butterfly rubbers as well.) However, there are other options if you want, for example, more spin on your pushes and loops/drives off backspin (such as Raystorm), or more control for blocking (such as Challenger Attack).
