I do this occasionally.....

....I love to play with the annual racquet selection map (http://www.racquetsportsindustry.com/articles/2010/04/18_racquet_selection_map.html) published in RSI Magazine.

There really is something behind the science as I really tend to gravitate to frames that are very similar to my favorites.

I wonder if there are many MRTs or retail guys out there that use the guides to help customers/clients in frame selection.

At least for here, perhaps it would help alleviate the "what frame should I try" or "what frame is most like" threads......

Thanks, VGP. Funny I don't see PK in the list.

I think it's one of those weird two-piecers that has the rubber filler, so it's really kind of artificial flex that you don't feel on impact.

Dude. 65 flex for the Pacific X Force sticks?

How do they figure the number higher than the manufacturer's unstrung spec, and 5 points higher than TW?
