    It is tough to definitively say which string is best for spin for you. It depends on your style of play. For me, Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power Rough provides insane spin/action. I have fast racquet head speed and like to take big, full swings on my groundies. Alu fits my game nicely.

    If you have a similar style, you should at least give it a try once and see how you like it.

    Take care.

    Thinner strings will give more topspin so the 1.25 will give more spin than the 1.30 also try textured string and string with a more hexagonal shape. Alu rough is great for spin, but only use it if you have a fast swing speed.

    If you're used to nylon now, then try out Wilson's new hexagonal one, Super Spin, and avoid the pain poly can bring you.

    Good suggestion....just monitor the tension, I find that super spin will move around a good bit on you. Then again, if your using nylon now super spin will be a vast improvement.

    If you find that strings move significantly on you, you can change your string tension(s), stringing frequency, stringer, racquet, string, and/or install string savers.
