Racquet Facts

All other things being equal:

  • Heavier frame generates more power
  • Heavier frame vibrates less
  • Heavier frame has a larger sweet spot
  • Stiffer frame generates more power
  • Stiffer frame has a larger sweet spot
  • Stiffer frame transmits more shock to the arm
  • Stiffer frame provides more uniform ball response across the entire string plane
  • Larger frame generates more power
  • Larger frame is more resistant to twisting
  • Larger frame has larger sweetspot
  • Longer frame generates more power
  • Longer frame generates more spin

String Facts

All other things being equal:

  • Lower string tension generates more power
  • Higher string tensions generate more control
  • Longer string plane are produces more power
  • Lower string density or fewer strings creates more power
  • Thinner string generates more power
  • More elastic strings generate more power
  • Generally, what will produce more power will absorb more shock
  • Softer strings tend to vibrate less
  • Thinner strings tend to produce more spin
  • Lower string density or fewer strings generates more spin
  • The more elastic the string, the more tension loss after the string job
  • Thinner string is better for everything except durability
  • Strung properly, natural gut is more durable than most people think
  • Bull Gut is new and is thought to be the best sting ever.
