    I was referring to the comments of the TW-staff (Andy), that I read on several posts on this forum and on Youtube review GPro. They noted that this racket creates much topspin comparable to the APD2013 they playtested together.

    If you read so many posts it's difficult to find it back exactly :) (was about 8 months ago) but I have found this, where the spin is compared to the Xtreme Pro 2.0

    Can ask again, but I think it's not that important because it's an opinion after playing. And ofcourse plays stringselection and tension a huge part.

    From my own finding after 2 hitting sessions, I have to say that the PDR with the same strings perform much more spin (and power) than the GPro. But -as always- it's also skill/technique that creates topspin... My hope is that playing with this racket forces me to apply more pure technique and control... Working harder to be rewarded so I can improve... But this takes time so we'll see!

    The Nadal model you refer to Nadals forehand variations with high rpm spins? Like the buggy whip/lasso ending, wrist acceleration on the end etc.?
    Or are there other aspects n this model? Just curious becaus he's my favo player and inhave tried to copy him (including his racket, apd) but it's not very succesfull... Still admire his innovation on technique and working/improve,ent mentality!

    There are many details to it, but you really can't go wrong just watching him closely at super slow motion and just matching what you do to it little by little.

    The two hand take back take back with laid up wrist, the full hip and shoulder turn, the push off of the same side foot and full rotation into the shot letting your body rotation drive the shot rather the your arm etc.

    I find racket the be critical component for this style - you need heavily polarized 11.5-12 oz racket with 340-350 swingweight
