    I think a lot of things about racquet selection can be a mystery. It took me forever to figure out that I liked frames that have stiffer hoops, but flex in the throat. Is there anywhere on the site where you show where each frame flexes?

    I feel like that could be excellent information to have.

    Power Player,

    Unfortunately, we do not have any place on our website that shows where each frame flexes. There is always a possibility some time in the future our TW Professor will have that information as he is always researching and building new contraptions.

    One thing I'm looking right now is the "comfort" score in TW's reviews. It always puzzled me how a stick in the high 60's stiffness score so good in comfort.

    I think the stiffness tells you the flex in the hoop, while the comfort rating obviously tells shock dampening of the stick which is associated with flex at the throat.

    Comfort is too subjective though. It is just each playtester's opinion.

    Imagine if you knew where the racquet flexed.
