what racquet has the most openest string pattern and what are the pros and cons of a really open string pattern. Really open is not 16/19. more than that.

It's actually not as noticable spin-wise as you'd expect. It's hard to describe. It has a good mix between a thinnish beam, open string pattern, midsized head and good weight and swingweight. It plays very solidly but you have to be able to hit all your shots at least 4.0 level to enjoy it. Whenever I hit with it I usually stay at the baseline because of the consistent feedback from the frame.

does it have a crisp feel and does the crisp feel come from the graphite or something else? Do all 100% graphite frames feel the same?

OPEN string pattern gives you more Spin but less control or less precision. Mark Woodford used to use Wilson racket with extreme open string pattern, he claimed it gave him crazy spin

BTW string pattern dooesnt matter, its the spacing between the strings

Really open is useless. It doesn't produce topspin, its technique that produces it. Opens string patterns just help slightly.
