Having hit with a prostaff 95 and now this dunlop, I'm amazed by how Federer could whip topsin with this type of racket. It's tiny, stuffy, lacks of flex and lightness for you to feel and pocket the ball.

Does Federer hit with a lot of topspin, ie large margin for errors, guys? I could see how Nadal, Djokovic and Murray hit which feels very safe. Fed's hitting doesn't feel safe but ..you can't argue with success!!
The wilson ps 95 is nothing like Fed's racket. Fed's racket is over 360 grams with SW around 355 give or take a few grams. Much heavier and yes, he hit a load of revolutions on the ball.

I thought the ps 95 had very good spin potential but needs a little lead in the head for power and stability. But, even stock, I thought the 16x19 pattern and low SW allowed for good spin production on sitters.
