Has anyone compared the spin from an extended reacquet to a Steam 99S or 105S?

    I was wondering how they compare as the extended (28" or longer) sticks were supposed to generate 10% more spin than regular racquets. Which I think is what the Steam S's are supposed to do?

    Very curious if anyone has done a comparo!

    Cheers

    I have a Prince Michael Chang Longbody as well as an old 28" Dunlop from the 90's. Not really a fair comparison, but the extra length makes it much harder to whip the racquet around. I don't get nearly the spin with these as I did with the 99s (owned one for a couple of weeks).

    I would be surprised if someone could generate the same spin with a 28" racquet as they could with the 99s.
