    The short review on your page about preorder said this:

    Players who like to utilize heavy slice on serve or off the ground should find a willing partner with this racquet

    Do you think this racquet was better at slice than the 16x18 string pattern frame?

    It also shows a difference in thickness, swingweight, weight and firmness than the 16x18 version. Any comment on playability due to these changes??

    poncho,
    We found the 18/20 better on slice compared to the 16/18. We were able to hit a heavier, more driving slice with the tight string pattern. We found that with the tighter string pattern the ball would not float as much on the slice. The open pattern was more topspin friendly. Both Casey and I came to these conclusions after initial hitting.
