    Sorry for asking a stupid question; I'm physically unable to play for the next couple of weeks, but this has been on my mind for quite a while. Which produces more topspin? I demoed the K95 open string pattern and was hugely disappointed, since my LM Radical Tour produced much more spin for my forehand than the former.

    its the k90.
    Even though it's a midsize frame, the string pattern on the k90 is ridiculously open. Probably the most you can get out of spin from a mid-size.

    I havent used the LM rad tour, but ive used the lm rad os. The lm radical os creates more spin than the k90. But, the Prince tour diablo is wiicked in spin production and im sure the apdc is too.

    If your looking for rackets that give a lot of spin, then Babolat's APDC is the way to go

    I have my K90s strung at 47 and 48 using 17 and 18 guage string and they generate a lot of spin. I have an FXP Team but haven't used it enough to compare spin levels.

    Reason I'm asking is I really liked the K95 on my 1HBH, but there's just no spin on my forehand with that racquet compared to my current racquet. I'm looking for a racquet with heft (without lead) that'll give me what I'm looking for. APDC looks too light.
