My game is s/v, net play and precision using Eastern FH & BH. So it may come as no surprise that the closed pattern provides my style of play vastly more controlled shots. YMMV.
Makes sense to me. My game is primarily baseline with an emphasis on spin so the open pattern fits my game much better. I volley amazingly well with this frame which seems counter intuitive to me since the frame is so flexible.
