    16x18 will generate more spin

    Get the 16x18 because the ncode's had tighter string patterns in the center of the bed anyway. You get better control and a larger sweetspot.

    If you want something even better, get the Asian ncode 6.1 95 (AN95).

    Yeah I heard the 18x20 is for more spin and control but less power:confused:

    My Wilson nPS 95 is 18 X 20.

    It is great for control and placement, but I have to work hard for spin and power.

    I used both of these frames last year and found the 18 x 20 to have superior control and equal spin capability. These are both stiff frames, but I found that the 18 x 20 was much more user friendly IMO.

    In the 16x18 version, the string pattern is quite tight in center of the string bed so I'm not sure it will give more spin than the 18x20. Anyway the 18x20 is much better than the 16x18, which is why all the pros use 18x20 and no one uses the 16x18.

    And you use 18x20 since you wish you were a pro. Clown.
