- RACKET TECHNOLOGIES: SET – Spin Effect Technology – simply put, is a seriously open string bed at 16 mains X 18 crosses. The extra space allowed by the open string bed allows each string to “bite” more of the ball, which helps to improve the revolutions per second when trying to impart heavy spin. Lower string tension helps to keep the ball on the strings for a fraction longer, which also helps to increase spin, as does utilizing a textured string designed specifically for spin.
