    Which is the spiniest, 98in, 18/20 racquet?

    Much of the answer to your own question is in my previous post - 18X20 has good control, but generally less power than more open patterns. If you have the swing, you can generate plenty of spin with plenty of control. Some people prefer the launch angle - as I do. With thinner gauge strings, you...

    Which is the spiniest, 98in, 18/20 racquet?

    You are just going to confuse folks, let alone the OP, with all that talk. Generally speaking, the more mass and stability the racquet has, the more it can help you with spin, assuming you can swing it. Orlin, there are a lot of models out there by Head, Wilson, Babolat, DUnlop etc that have...

    Which is the spiniest, 98in, 18/20 racquet?

    I'd try the Speed Pro and string it with 18G of your choice in the mid 50's to start. I run a blade 18X20 with 18G tour bite. Plenty of spin and control.

    Blade V8 Official Thread.

    I suspect the throat is slightly more flexible, but the hoop is stiffer. I have a few other racquets like this that behave similarly - a stiffer hoop helps make the racquet more stable.

    Calibrating stringing machine and pulling angle

    2 inches of string won't stretch hardly at all. On a lockout, one of the things that is very noticeable when you string racquets with long mains, is the tension will be noticeably less than on an ECP with some polys. Especially if you are doing something like an Extreme VS like a blade. And...

    Calibrating stringing machine and pulling angle

    He's talking about friction resulting in the tension loss he sees. There's friction at the, uh, cattle magnet(?) there(and in the grommets etc). But something I'm not sure anyone has brought up is he is measuring the tension at two completely different locations as well. The one where he sees...

    Will It Pallet?

    I thought it would be nice to add to this thread instead of create a new one myself. Not long ago I received two OG/nCode Wilson Blades in a trade. Only problem was the guy who had them before me rounded off the grips. On top of this, they were L2, like old style tiny L2, vs the L3 or L4 I...

    Better Option for Clash 98

    Calm down there, Ron. Wilson's own literature, as well as TW's, state you can string it up to 26kg, which is over 57lbs. I've had mine up to 57lbs, and it does add control without making the ride too harsh. It does lose some of it's plushness, though. I think the spin actually goes up the...

    So, V6 on down are possibly the same?
