    It is hard to recommend you a racquet without more info about your game level and priorities.

    In general terms and considering only the racquet (because technique is a key factor), "spin friendly" refers to racquets with an open strings pattern (i.e. 16x19 racquets). In this pattern you can find a lot of racquets (players´s, tweener´s, comfort oriented, weight, balance point, head size, etc, etc, etc).

    Give us more info and we can give you a better recommendation.

    I hit a heavy top spin forehand and play a one handed backhand. I play with a Babolat Pure Drive Roddick. The racket has plenty of spin on serves and ground strokes and ads a little extra "umph" on the backhand.

    It might be a simple tweak of strings. Use a thinner string so it would bite harder or try Blue Gear to exagerate the spin a bit.

    It might be in your swing path, instead of driving or hitting through the ball with your SHBH, finish it with an upward brushing motion.

    So you want a racquet that is just good for topspin on your forehand? I don't know if there is any such racquet.

    I hit a one handed backhand with a lot of topspin. my fav. since aug. 2007 is the babolat pure storm tour. the real surprise is my twist serve its so easy with this frame. yes the pure storm tour is the man's world. you must be an acomplished player,but thats tennis.

    Nothing wrong with the Pure Storm Tour, you'll have to work on technique, brushin up for topspin. Get out there and hit more.

    any light, midplus or oversize racquet will do.

    Try the Wilson nPro Open, not heavy but solid and certainly not light, nice open string pattern and a frame that can be modified to suit.

    Within the Babolat family, the APDC should give you what you want. Spin is potentially crazy with this one. Alternatively, any open string pattern that feels good in your hands will do the trick.
