Hello everybody, This is my first post in this forum and I am very happy that I've found such a big online tennis community! Here is my question: my old racket (which has about 8 years now) has broke a few weeks ago and since then I'm searching for a new one. I see that there are a lot of options out there, but after a lot of study I managed to narrow down to search to just a few models. I am an advanced player and my style of play is based on control and spin. Of course I also hit flat when needed. I like rackets over 320 g heavy with about the same swingweight, so the racket that I put my eyes on is the Wilson Pro Staff Six One 90, since this one is pretty heavy, it has a pretty big swingweight, it is headlight for easy manouvering, a bit opened pattern, etc. But now, I see that Wilson (I am a Wilson fan by the way) comes with a new technology: the spin effect which got me thinking a bit... It is another option which is a bit more different. Of course I'd like more RPM, every player that spins would like that, but wouldn't the wide opened pattern hurt my control and my flat shots? I see that a lot of players who tested the Steam 99S are very impressed with the extra spin compared to a "normal" racket, but no one talks about the control difference over a "normal" racket... If I think on my own, I would say that the control has to suffer with a much opened pattern... The rule that I know is the opened the pattern is, the less control you have, but maybe someone who tested this racket can give me a bit more info about the difference from a normal racket. I would highly appreciate that! Basically, my question is: if I am an advanced player and I like classic rackets, should i change to this new technology, will it improve my game? I think many people are thinking about this and I hope answering my question will help others as well. I hope I haven't bothered anyone with my long story, I wanted to be as precise as possible. Thank you and I would like to see any input you have on this matter!
