If I generate 1 RPM of spin with a multi and 1 RPM of spin with a poly, then I generate "as much spin with a multi as with a poly"
, don't I?
I'm not taking sides here....and I understand your desire for the purity of the sport over technology.
However the answer to your question is : no.
All shots even flat shots have some spin on it.
I grant you that a ball coming in waist high you will hit flat with the same RPM regardless of the type of string.
However not all bounces are created equal....for example if someone hits a low skidding slice at you then you must lift that ball to get it over the net. It cannot be hit flat.
