I know that spin has a lot to do with techque but just wondering, which racquet in the market today has the most spin potential?

I think babolats and yonex's are very spin friendly. I got lots of topspin with the aeropro drive and also the yonex RDX had alot of spin for a mid.

For spin, it is best for the racquet to have more strins (19x20) or for a racquet to have less string (16x18)?

more open patterns will hav more inherent spin. but nothing produces more spin that technique but string pattern and string hav a big influence.

the most spin friendly racquet hav open string paterns, ar heavy but very manuverable, and are flxy.

Also, for spin, is it better to use low or high powered tension?

my friend used my racquet and induce massive topspin that bounced right over my head. I'm around 5'10" btw.

Low tension strings will hold the ball longer so therefore more spin potential.


You might wanna experiment with grips. A semi western or full western will give you more topspin.

Flexy? I don't think so, as Babolats are notoriously stiff and very very spin friendly. Also look at the RDS racquets, they are stiff also.

I'm thinking about demoing the yonex rds 001 MP, Fischer M Pro One, and looking into some techifibre racquet cause they open string pattern racquet seem really spin friendly.

Any other suggestion?

Another vote for the POG. It's very easy to generate spin with it.

I get more spin with my Yonex pro rd-70 long 105 than I got with the pog mid or OS or the rdx500.

Is the Tecnifibre TFight 335 (16x20) any good for spin?

The Flexpoint Fire. It seems to be designed for spin as I have to back off to hit the ball flatter at times.

Yonex RDX500 for sure

Considering only modern frames, you must try the Prince O3 Tour MP, the Yonex RDX500 mp and the babolat Pure Drive Team. Those 3 frames are "extreme spin generators"!!

Prince Bandit
Prince NXG
and more recently Prince 03 White. I demoed the white the other night and the spin was unbelievable. I ordered 2:-)

IT WAS IN!!!

i agree on the rdx, o3 tour, but the Pure Drive team is awful for spin

How do you figure? The PD is one of the most spin friendly racquets out there. How do you think all these college players, and Roddick manage to keep the ball in with this racquet? Where the heck did you come up with this?

Aeropro drive, or most other babolat racquets

i did not think the pd was that great for spin at all. college players and andy roddick dont need a spin beast to keep the ball in. hence the 18x20 string pattern in the prestige

Granted the PD doesn't have GREAT spin, but it does have enough to suit those who naturally generate spin

Yes 18x20, but also a heck of a lot less power. Also, there are a lot of people out there who thinks the PD hits as much spin as the APD.

Try the PowerAngle 98. The diagonal strings produce a ton of spin.

the k90 is REALLY spin friendly... when i do slice the ball barely bounces and glides like 1/2 inch over the ground

From my experiments, stiffer racquets seem to get better bite and better spin from higher tension. Flexible racquets make lots of spin with lower tension regardless of an open or dense pattern, but an open pattern probably helps a bit.

Technique matters, but some frames are certainly spin prone. By reputation, the Yonex RDX-500 is a spinster, and from what I've tried, the Flexpoint Radical Tour (phenomenal spin for me) and the Prince NXG's (including the mid) make whatever rpm's I could ever need.

I've played with A LOT of rackets and NOTHING produces spin like Fischer Pro Tour Extreme SL (the 325g version)

It is a 27.4 inch, 95sq. in and 9 point head light, flexible racket with open string design ( 16x18 ).

This one is low on power (alot of flexibility in a head light unit at under 12oz will do that). In fact, when I got that racket I had to put it away for few months and play with more powerful Pro Tour FT (same weight but more stiff and less headlight at 98 sq. in.) to develop my forehand to produce more power. Switched back to Extreme just two weeks ago and the spin is amazing (though now I was able to send all that spin all the way to baseline) - sending those short balls cross court is a pleasure - the racket swings around its handle as if on it's own and makes achieving insane head speeds very easy.


P.S. I played with Prince O3, Flexpoint, RDX500 and all the Babolats and Wilson Prostaffs - not even close...well maybe Pro Staff Classic 6.1 was close, but it was way less maneuverable at 12+oz.

PD has good, but not extreme spin. Just too thick beam, and too stiff. I doubt about it you have same technique like Andy...
Another vote for O3 tour MP as spinmaster...

string it tight with PSGD, most racket can have very good spin. with poly, u become Sick !

String type does not significantly effect spin, head speed does.

Poly might encourage you to swing harder because it less powerful and the ball doesn't fly as far, but it itself does not produce more spin.
