If you have used Babolat Pure Drive, you'll find yourself swinging with faster racquet head speed because it is a light racquet with little wind resistance. However, if you have used Ncode n6.1, you will feel slower racquet headspeed because it feels heavier. Do these 2 racquets really have different weight altogether or is it because N6.1 has heavier racquet headweight?

Swing speed is dictated by "swing-weight". The one with the lower sw will swing faster. Having said that, be carefull with the specs. provided by the manufacturers. Also, with the ones provided by TW. In between other things, because things like head tape, over-grips and vibration dampers all make the sw rise.
