Hi, what should be the best topsheet/foam combination to have the greatest possible spin inversion?
Hard topsheet on slow foam (soft and porous)....
Or...
Soft topsheet on hard foam?
It would be nice to understand, according to your experience, what is the best compromise to obtain a strong spin inversion and at the same time the maximum slowness to send very short balls over the net

Hardest possible topsheet with very soft slow sponge (like the famous red sponge). It's the slowest sponge available on the market and still providing a great spin reversal.

Thank you. Do you know what's the hardest possible topsheet?

For me it is the topsheet of the Super Glanti.

My 2 cents:

if you want to prioritize slowness, go for something like Super Glanti with 1.6mm red sponge with a blazingly fast wood. It will be still super slow, allowing you to 2 bounces block even the fastest loop.

If you want to prioritize spin reversal: go for Super Glanti black edition with the slowest wood possible like Nittaku Goriki Super cut, TSP balsa 2.5 or even the new DMS Super control. The combo will be still very fast, making impossible to do 2 bounces block. But spin reversal is the best as it can be.
