Sorry, I've never tried those, and I can't comment on them without knowing anything about their specs.

However, I would say that in general, weight distribution and stiffness ratio are biggest determinants to spin potential (in that order), followed by string type, with string pattern/tension a distant fourth. For some reason everybody gives too much credit to strings and string pattern.
