    I would like to know some rackets that have the Highest Spin, but not like huge oversizes.

    + Thinner Beam Widths are preferred.

    Thanks

    The new Head Extreme is a spin monster like the Babolat AeroPro Drive.

    I'm thinking POG Mid... small head, thin beam, very open string pattern.

    At least, demo it. The boards has a love-it-or-hate-it relationship with this racquet. I was surprised that I really liked this racquet.

    Yonex, like any of the RDS series ( i heard the 003 produces some massive spin)

    I know you said thinner beams preferred but I think you've got to put the Babolat PD and AeroPro into any discussion of racquets with high spin potential.
    Otherwise, of the ones I've tried ;

    POG Mid
    POG OS
    POG Longbody
    Prince TT Warrior MP (although I always offers more spin than weight to shots)

    Yonex RDS 001
    Yonex RDS 002
    Yonex RDX500 MP

    While I think there have been some excellent suggestions here in response to the OP. It has much more to do with your technique than the racquet you use. While some sticks with a more open string pattern (16 x 18) or similar offer a little better access to spin than ones with more closed patterns with good technique I can generate a ton of spin with an 18x20 frame.

    Wilson nCode 95. Beam's not too wide. Pretty stiff, very head light, 95in and wide open 16x18 pattern.

    Don't know about the new K95 though.

    If you can find one, the Yonex RD 70 long - better than anything for spin I've ever touched. Better than the RD7, better than the POG, better than the 03 Tour - 17mm beam. I've never played the Babolat Aero's though so I don't know how it compares to these.

    I definitely agree
    and a string set-up to maximize spin and feel (IMO) is a hybrid of luxilon ace 18 in the mains and tecnifibre x-one biphase 17 g

    for my money the easiest spin racquet is the babolat aero pro drive cortex with a close second babolat pure drive roddick.

    i think my old yonex RDX 500 MP and my current yonex RDS003 generate just as much -- just not as ridiculously easily. gotta work for it.

    but i also think the babolat APDC and PDR have more power than many players may need/want. so some tradeoffs.

    I played around with a liquidmetal radical MP for a few days and I hit a very active ball with it compared to my ntour90's. So, at least for me, the Liquidmetal Radical was like a spin monster.

    Ive tried many, and with many string set-ups. Found the most spin from POGOS, with full poly, like Lux Ace 18 or SPPP. I also have APDC and is also great for spin but is powerful so you must be more careful especiall when trying to paint lines. Good hunting

    In the moment.
    Look no further than the good 'ole AK90 w/ 'polarzied' configuration and the "Mojo" string set up. Second only the POG mid in my experience. ;) CC
