Hmmm... The last 2 for sure can be done with the polarized setup... The thing hits with so much spin it's just insane.
Balls on the rise I'd probably prefer the depolarized setup just slightly due to the stability factor.
Overall, you can just get a polarized setup, then add some lead at 3&9 to gain stability for those baseline half volley pickups. But if we're talking about the regular concept of on the rise, then either work fine... I just feel that it's not on the rise unless it's a half volley. Haha. Played on the rise for most of my tennis development...
