    is there really that much difficulty to generate topspin from an 18by20 string pattern?or are there other problems with it and trying to use topspin?i found i enjoy the babolat aerostorm which has a high swingweight and a 16by20 patter.the only problem is that babolat is known for not having that high correct racket specs.so i looked around and found technifibre,i like the looks,how there not that well known in my area and i think i found a specific racket similar to the aerostorm,the only problem is that its an 18by20. i use alot of topspin on my forehand and somewhat of a flat 2hbh.im still goin to demo the two but do u think the stringpattern matters that much?

    Theres actually a tecnifibre 16.20 version. You could try asking around for that.

    Technique is so much more important than string pattern when it comes to getting spin. Hand Federer a Big Bubba and he'd still hit some wicked spin.

    If you think so, then go with a thinner gauge string.

    yeah if you think it doesn't get enough spin than use something thinner even though it should get the same amount of spin i prefer a 18 by 20 when it comes to spin
