I was wondering if people can compare these 2 racquets. I currently use the sp tour and thinking about upgrading to one of the two but I can't decide which one (I can't demo them).

I thought they were both very solid at the baseline , the directional control for me on groundsyrokes was simply ridiculous with the ignite, bit the rebel was solid too. I think the ignite serves better and gives me more options with pace or really loading a heavy one up with spin, the ignite's sweet spot was a little bigger, but I thought it was a little more distinct on the rebel.

Does the 18x20 string pattern on the Rebel still produce a lot of spin? That is one of the reasons I'm considering the ingite hah.

I think you know better than me about tennis techniques.
but How much spin do you want? ^__^
I think rebel produces a good spins.

I don't like to talk about the rackets because it's all about the personal preference so I only comment about the weight perspective.
I used SPT about 7- 8 months. I liked the racket but I preferred to have a slightly lighter racket. I waited a couple of months then I tried US version Rebel 95. it was a very solid racket but I don't like the weight of the racket. very similar weight feeling to SPT though. I also tried rebel team but I felt it's too light and unstable feeling for me so I decided to buy the Asian/japanese version rebel. I was worried a little without demoing the racket but it's just what I wanted. I liked the racket so far.
a few weeks ago, my coach had ignite team and ignite. I played about 30 min but I was a little surprised by the swing weight of ignite team.
It felt heavier than my Asian/Japanese rebel. I checked spec. ignite team has a heavier swing weight than mine. I felt my rebel is much easier to swing maybe because of thinner beam....?
since you use SPT, ignite might have similar feeling to SPT and i think ignite has very good spin potential.
In my opinion, Rebel and ignite are different racket. they only have same head size but even their head shape is different. rebel is more oval shape and ignite is more round shape. hope it helped a little and good luck with your decision.
