I would like to get another K95 for my backup but I havent tried the 18x20 (never had a chance) and heard a lot of good feedbacks. Does the 18x20 provides identical spin but extra control and feel than 16x18 version? Suggestions?

Also, I would like to put in TNT Fusion 19G, would it be a good fit?

The reason I asked is that I heard that the 18x20 has more control and this is only the difference between the 2.

The answer to your question is that there is some diff between the two (16*18 more pop/spin, 18*20 more control) but nothing substantial. You will get the same from both sticks. Go with the 16*18... buying the 18*20 will only cause you to lose some crucial points/games in a close match if you have to change racquets during the match.

Grass is greener on the other side? :)

Just kidding.

Anyway, I would recommend the same racquet as your primary racquet. You may want to change the strings or string tension if you'd like a different feel to it.

Thanks,

x2...when the strings start getting more crowded in the frame the first sacrifice will always be spin...while the one of the top gains will usually be control.

and not too sure about such a thin gauge in this racquet. i probably wouldnt go any lower than 18g with 17g actually being more ideal. if are trying to get more control here, you'd be better off experimenting will different hybrid set-ups, stringing a slightly higher tension or trying different string materials first. but thats just my .02
