i like the 18x20 because i love the control u get with 18x20s

I can not say anything about 16x18's racquets because I only use 18x20 and 16x19 racquets in my life.

Some people say 16x18 are better because the spin other people like more 18x20 because the control...It's all about style of play...

I've owned two 16x18 n6.1-95 and two 18x20 n6.1-95 because I couldn't make up my mind for a while. Over the course of six months, comparing them under different circumstances, sting jobs, ups and downs, I can tell you that while I found the extra bit of liveliness and spin appealing with the 16x18, the 18x20 was the way I chose to go. I sold the 16x18s. Serve placement and volleying are clearly better with the denser pattern, and groundstrokes under pressure are far less likely to go long. Basically, it came down to control and accuracy, and the denser pattern still has good power and spin potential.

If you string the 18x20 with a strin, less than 1.20 mm you get nearly as much spin as the 16x18, but you get the added control of the dense string pattern as well.

Furthermore, the string bed is consistent which gives you pretty much the same feel all arounf the racket face. The 16x18's cross strings are spaced differently throughout the stringbed, which causes for me anyway, an inconsistent feel.

The only thing I dont like about this racket is the beam width. A 20 mm beam or less would have been perfect for this stick.

I used to play with the K95 18X20. The string pattern provides more control. Spin is already pretty good with the racquet. Unless you want a little more power, the 18x20 should be good. Plus string don't break as quick.
