    what gives you the most spin for a good price?

    I put black code in my speed mp 16x19 today and loved the amount of spin. It seemed like everything was dipping right onto the base line and kicking right to the fence.

    Can someone recomend me some other spin friendly strings?

    Luxilon Alu Power Rough. Assuming you have spin-producing strokes with fast racquet head speed, the spin from Alu Power Rough is sick. I'm talking ball-drop-out-of-the-sky sick.

    It isn't cheap though.

    Take care.

    MSV Focus Hex 1.10 or 1.18. Little less than $8 for a set or you can buy a reel and it comes out to $5 per full string job.

    For the price, Pro Supex Blue Gear. Around $6 a set with a reel.

    Focus Hex is a good deal but not nearly as much spin. Tornado is another good one but it is expensive.

    Yeah like 13-15 bucks, but I mean that's about what the PHT runs. I like my Power Rough, got in my Babolat APDC @ 57 lbs, I actually really like my serve with it.

    I went with PHT at 60 lbs on my Roddick Pure Drive Cortex Plus. It's not bad as well, but I think I give the edge to Luxilon.

    I played with the 1.18 msv focus hex which has good spin. Just got a new stringjob, full BB alu rough and Im very suprised how good it plays and the spin it generates:)

    If your elbow can take it, Ashaway Crossfire Kevlar grips like sandpaper. Best bite of anything I've used. String it really low (48m x 52x) and you'll get good initial pop and great pocketing but its tension ramps up quickly for low power on fast swings.

    Slapped on full Black Code at 24.5kgs the other day (also on a Speed 16x19). Experienced something weird:

    First session was just sweet, the string is soft, with plenty of spin and power. I was hitting really heavy balls (ahhh the poly addiction is raging again).
    2nd session - crazy vibrations out of nowhere... I mean it's not hurting my arm or anything but it's just vibrating so much more than the first day. Have you experienced this? Heard some opinions that this string has bad tension loss so that could be it.
