That conclusion was 180 degrees opposite from what we were all experiencing on the court. More recent testing has only validated what players have known all along, that strings do make a difference with regards to spin. Even though we now have lab testing which validates the player experience, players are still skeptical of the dudes in the white lab coats, and perhaps rightly so.
Could you provide a link/reference to those more recent testing?
