If you are a user or have used POG OS, give your opinion on its topspin score from 0 - 100 (like TW).

And while you're at it, assign a score to the Prestige Classic 600, Pro Tour 280, and 03 Tour.

i really dont think you can answer the question the way you want it answered...spin is more technique than anything else...

I think there is an inherent problem when it comes to rating spin.

When you have a low powered racket such as an 03 Tour or even a POG, you can get the perception you have more spin than you really do. Spin may be exactly the same as with a Pure Drive, but because of the slow air speed the ball seems to spin more. Some of this is cancelled out because higher speed makes spin more effective, but that is a small consideration.

My wood rackets hit with a ton of spin for this reason.

I think this question must be asked in conjuction with how much power a racket can produce. Most of the time there are trade-offs.

Almost every high powered racket on the market is known to be spin-friendly.

I think if you can get the same amount of rackethead speed with the POG as you can with the 03 Tour, you will get more spin as well as more power. Nobody in the world swings stock versions of these things at the same speed.

I think this question more than anything depends on your swing and your technique, it is impossible to judge these things subjectively.

I thought the POG and 03 Tour are great rackets for spin. With my capabilities and my swing, I was getting much more spin with the 03 Tour.

This doesn't answer your question... I'll stop...

PC600: 70
PT280: Never played with it
O3 Tour: 80

85 for POG O/S
82 for POG
80 for 03 Tour
70 for PC 600
70 for PT 280

Using sort of a TW scale...



All things being equal.. same string, tension and player. IMHO

Based on what I have seen.. not so. He asked for our insights. I have played with all of these frames.. and for my game. The O/S has better spin..and better slice. All things being equal.. for me. The O/S is the best IMHO. Bigger head..more strings.. etc.

Mot much more but somewhat because i felt it was more polarized so it was easier to create topspin. I would have rated the POG MP 86 because of that.
