    What is more important? Swing weight or racket weight when trying to decide on a racket?
    I see some heavier rackets >12.0 oz with a lower swing weight than a 11.3 oz racket with a higher swing weight of 335(Aero Pro Drive Plus).
    I hit with medium to extreme topspin off the forehand with a semi-western grip.
    I know I need soemthing head light and I also need something to return 4.5 serves. It seems I'm swinging late with the Aero Pro Plus. I know the length makes a difference too. Does the head size need to be taken into consideration as well? I play mostly doubles.
    What allows you to pull the trigger quicker? A lighter racket or lighter swing weight?
    Thanks for any responses.

    Lighter swingweight allows for a quicker trigger pull.

    Some lighter racquets have higher SW so they can feel more stable. When you shift the balance forward in the racquet, you get a higher SW.
