    are these accurate, i mean i would demo rackets and would find one less powerful than another. But when i look at tennis.com's racket finder it shows that the one i think is more powerful is actually less powerful than the one i think is less powerful. Does this make sense? or is it just personal opinion/preference?

    Thanks for any comments,

    Assuming all are strung with the same type of string etc, then it comes down to the player.

    Example:
    A beginning player with short, compact strokes will find more power and depth from a light and stiff game improvement racquet than a player's racquet. The stiff racquet will provide more depth off a compact swing.

    However, give the same two racquets to an advanced player with long strokes and he will be able to generate more power from the player's racquet due to his ability to utilize the racquet's mass.
