    Spin depends alot on technique but maybe some rackets help a bit to generate more spin. What players racket is good for a person who likes to generate spin in his shots?

    Exo3 Tour 100 springs to mind. Only had experience with 16x18 though. Lovely racket.

    I produced lot of spin with 18x20 as well and excellent control. I guess the exo3 ports are causing the strings to move freely resulting in spin. I was able to hit carelessly.

    I recently demoed the Prince EXO3 Tour 100 18x20 strung with full RPM Blast. The spin I got from it was more than what I currently get with my APDGT strung with a multifilament. I had full poly on my APDGT before, and I think the spin generation was better than my multi setup but still less than the EXO3 Tour 100. My guess is the 16x18 version of the EXO3 Tour 100 is probably even spinnier. I haven't gotten that kind of kick on my serve since I was in my 20's. Another thing for me to consider is that I can't use full poly on my APDGT without hurting my arm. I can probably get away with it on the EXO3 Tour 100 as long as I cut it before it dies.

    I got a ton of spin from this. Also, the OS version produces a good bit of spin.

    You may get some good ideas from this thread, but I think there are other important variables that impact spin more than just frame and string pattern (namely string type, tension, your swing).

    eg, I can spin the heck out of balls with my 18x20 Redondo with 18g poly @ 52lbs. Also, I have heard that the KPS88 is better for flat shots, but again I can use it to impart some pretty heavy topspin.
