If you wanna achieve heavy topspin, yutani, there's not a better grip to use than western.
It's true, with SW, you can get plenty of deep, penetrative AND spinny groundies, but for the topspin alone, the western is the way to go... so...

Why would u wanna change it?

i agree w/ andres, a western grip is the best way to go to get spin.

Maybe if you used the same face as the bh on the fh, then it would be able to produce tons of top on the fh. That's because, it would end up being an extreme western fh (a little bit beyond a normal western).
