    For instance, does the Nsix-one 16x18 favor a one handed over a two handed (or vice versa) backhand, as compared to nsix-one 18x20?

    The string pattern would have more to do with your shot tendencies than 1h/2h. You tend to naturally get more spin with an open string pattern than a dense one.
    Just for kicks, I recently took out an old Billie Jean wood frame. I found that if I watched the ball (like you should anyway), I could get pretty much the same results as with my Head PT 280. MAybe a little less power, but the results were pretty close. I got good topspin from my one hander. The frame has a very dense string pattern. I could really feel the flex. I had trouble on kick serves because of the extreme grip (funny since my thumb is on the bottom bevel with my one hander and I didn't have trouble with it.). All was going well until the frame cracked. I guess after sitting up for a decade or two, it didn't like power serves.

    I wouldn't call it skill, it's technique. It's a question of preference.
