    i know a larger string pattern would create more spin but is an 18x19 terrible?

    will it still manage slices/drops and serves just as good?

    what are the downsides, if any?

    String pattern is not the issue, its the spacing between the strings. Some 16 main racquet have tight patterns and some don't. Same with 18 mains.
    For example, the Radical OS has 18 mains, yet it's more spin friendly than say a wood racquet with 16 mains.
