View Full Version : 1st or 2nd Generation Poly: Which produces more spin?

We all know that your technique, stroke, racket head speed, etc. are the most important components for more spin. But speaking strictly from a string physics point of view, which generation would bite the ball more, 1st gen. poly or 2nd gen poly?

1st gen poly would be a Kirschbaum Super Smash and 2nd gen would be Luxilon Big Banger ALU power.

I use BBO which I consider first gen and compared to ALU, I think it's close to a tie but when comparing BBO to some of the "newer" stuff like BA, CF, CP and thinks like that, I feel I get more spin from a 1st gen poly. Just my opinion though.
