    Would I notice any difference in spin than if I used PSGO 15 in the crosses? I plan to use PHT or Pro Supex Big Ace in the mains. Thanks.

    "Topspin" is a low quality string that won't really help you generate spin, especially with such a thick gauge.

    To generate spin how you hit the ball has more to do with generating spin than what you hit the ball with.

    Not so sure I would agree with the low quality statement. BUT I tend to dislike any 'gimmick' incorporated into the equipment. I do play with an O3 racket thought so I do keep an open mind.

    Point being? We're talking about what one hits the ball with. We're talking about what string would help one generate spin.

    An open string pattern is generally seen as helping one to produce spin, for the same reason thinner string is seen as being helpful. The larger the gaps are, the more "bite" can be put on the ball.

    Point being, I don't think you will see much difference between Topspin and PSGO especially in the crosses.

    Only the mains really affect spin generation IMO

    I agree, and reducing tension in the crosses, emphasizing the main strings, will increase spin.
