Im trying to decide what to order next, i have been using Kirschbaum Spiky Shark, i like a stiff string that has easy access to spin, because i hit heavy topspin ground strokes.
let me know which one is stiffer, more powerful, gives easy access to spin, and which you overall prefer.

Thanks a Lot,

I've strung both of these for a customer. He says they play pretty similarly. But, the Rough lasts a lot longer for him. He brought me the Spin to put in his racket and it broke pretty quickly. He asked me why. When I went through my records, I saw that the only difference was that he bought spin whereas I had put in Rough (I don't carry the Spin). I put Rough back in and it's already lasted longer than the Spin did.

Never tried Spin, but Rough is the only string I'll use - by far the best string for me.

Take care.
