    Is there any add-on (legal or not-legal) to generate more spin and power? I am training my son and my swing speed is not fast enough to generate pace, depth and especially spin all at the same time to bother him.

    Many thanks.

    String will help a little but the truth is if you are not as skilled as your son that isn't much you can do about it other than get better.

    You could do drills that would benefit him. Examples:

    1. play points where he must hit every shot to your best shot and you can hit anywhere you want.

    2. you feed specific patterns to him; such as a short ball that he hits to your strength, comes in and you try to return the ball to him so he can volley.

    There are more but the point is you could organize drills to minimize your weaknesses and give him a good workout.

    Same cure as for a car with a weak motor.
    Jack up the car, replace motor.
    In your case, remove you, replace with a good player.

    Maybe find him a hitting partner(s) that can both him with pace and spin.
    Must be other juniors around who wish to practice.

    I guess you could take lessons to improve your strokes but there really isn't any magic add-on to change your normal pace and spin.
