I have a somewhat hypothetical quiestion that I searched for on the forum but didn't find any relevant info on: Let's assume that we have 2 racquets that are identical except for the string pattern, e.g. Wilson K6.1 16X18 and 18X20. Many people argue that a tighter string pattern equals more control and less spin than an open string pattern. The argument for this would be that the open string pattern allows the ball to sink deeper into the pattern so to speak due to the greater distance between the srings. Also, the stringbed would be softer than on a racquet with a tight string pattern given that they both are strung with the same tension, which would also create more spin, assumeably. Here is the question: Thinner string generally create more spin than thicker strings, so how much difference in string gauge would create the same spin with a 18X20 racquet as with a 16X18?
