Static weight, balance point, swingweight and headsize were the biggest factors, then length, stiffness, grip size.

Swingweight, then length+headsize

Head size, swingweight, stiffness, balance, length, grip (although, I am not sure why that is included, as you can get all of the above in whatever grip you want).

Can you explain what is the swingweight?

swingweight is the measure of angular inertia of the racquet. it is a direct indication of how hard or easy it is to change the direction of a racquet, start swinging or stop swinging (manuverability). it is also a direct indicator of racquet stability, the higher the number the easier the racquet will plow through the ball but the racquet will be less manuverable. the lower the number the more manuverable the racquet will be but will not plow thru the ball as readily.
