    Luxilon Big Banger Alu Power Rough 16L. Great string for topspin.

    By the way, a player with good technique can generate lots of topspin with any string. Mortals like us need textured strings.

    I use the Prince Topspin Plus string. Great for all spin shots!

    Textured strings and Polys combined with solid technique impart awesome spin.

    It is the durable version of Prince's Topspin Plus.

    Adding in Duraflex makes for a stiffer stringbed, and it generates pretty good topspin in itself.
    Together with the somewhat thicker gauge, the added stiffness is enough to require a tension adjustment.

    Factor into your choice that any textured string *loses* that texture pretty quick.

    Strings that don't fuzz up are generally good topspin strings. Babolat Pro Hurricane 17 is a great string.

    BTW topspin should only be used when you hit hard and need to keep it in, otherwise flat shots would have more depth even if you hit the ball equally as hard.

    lol when i read the title, i thought the OP meant Topspin, as in the brand... ;)

    anyways, i heard steel wire strings are good for 'ripping up' the ball, literally.
