View Full Version : Strings with best access to TOPSPIN?

01-24-2010, 09:03 AM
I use an older head model with an 18x20 string bed. I have been using Wilson enduro 17gauge mains and wilson sensation 17 in the crosses. im still having trouble getting the amount of spin i know i can generate, anyone have any monofilaments ....poly's...... full or hybrid set-ups, that they could share that gives them tons of topspin?:)

Few that come to my mind:
1. Signum Pro Plasma Poly 1.18mm (17L gauge)
2. Top spin Cyber Flash 1.25mm
3. MSV focus hex 1.10mm (string goes dead in 5-7 hours)

ALU rough 10 char

yes i vouch for alu rough too.. though its a tougher string combo in terms of the arm

I've found ALU power to be the best, I'm not convinced the rough makes a lot of difference. I've found blue gear also is a good spin string.

For high swing speeds, I don't think anything beats poly or co-polys. Rafa has been playing for years with a very old-school poly, and he can generate a sick amount of spin, but he swings incredibly hard at the ball. If you watch him on TV you can't see how hard he swings at the ball - it's much more impressive in person.
