Are the graphs on the racquet reviews really that accurate. I am looking into getting either the APDC or PST and see that the PST had a higher rating in the topspin category. I would think the APDC would due to its more open string pattern.

Please share your thoughts on the accuracy of TW Racquet reviews.

Also, which do you think has more topspin capabilities?

Accuracy can only occur when something is quantifiable, or "measurable." The TW reviews are totally subjective, and hence by their nature are not measurements, nor "accurate" in a strict sense.

The only thing the reviews you mentioned really say is that TW's playtesters thought the PST had more topspin. Is that enough to make you decide to buy the PST if you like topspin? Who knows :)

I don't even like the word "playtester", as it implies there are some sort of objective "tests" involved (like you see in science labs or on Mythbusters). "Playhitters" would be a more accurate (no pun intended) term.

Ever considered demoing the frames? I think that's the better solution.
