what if......

Thinner shaped strings shred fuzz off the ball faster than thicker shaped strings. If there is less fuzz the ball it will have less friction through the air which would result in less action from the spin.

Assuming you use one can of balls for best of three USTA set...After about 15 minutes of hitting...
-Thicker strings preserve the ball's fuzz more which might lead you to believe you are getting more action.
-Thinner strings remove of fuzz faster which lead to decreases spin action of the ball, since there is less friction.

Therefore thicker strings do play a role in more spin action on the ball!
