    I'm not sure if this has been thought up but I think it would work great.

    Blue gear mains with a string in the crosses that is textured as well but instead of the grooves going up and down the string, they would be going in a circular motion around the string...

    I'm having trouble expressing it in words but I think with this setup, one could get massive spin...

    maybe pro supex should make this string and sell it in a hybrid package with blue gear...i would try it

    That string would be either Gamma Ruff or Prince Topspin. Already available.

    i did a blind playtest with head fibergel and fibergel spin, he reported that the racquet with fibergel spin gripped the ball better
