Your argument is self-contradictory and not rationally coherent.

Your previous argument was that a stiffer stringbed makes the ball flatten more and this phenomenon results in greater spin.

Stiffer stringbed = shorter dwell time.

Your argument here is that softer stringbed creates more spin because of LONGER dwell time.

These arguments are mutually exclusive.
