Damped nuclear reactions are studied in order to improve our understanding of macroscopic nuclear dynamics at moderate excitation. Towards this end, it is important to study angular-momentum related observables, as they carry considerable information about the reaction dynamics: While the correlated mass and charge distribution, which has received much attention in the past, can be characterized by two mean values and three second moments, the correlated fragment spin-spin distribution requires two mean values and thirteen non-trivial covariances.
