I've read many reviews that light rackets are better for net play and that lead should be added if you want to hit more powerfull groundstrokes but removed for the sake of mobility if you like to hit alot of volleys. I've experimented with weighting rackets and found that the stabilizing effect of lead improves volleys (better directional control and more pace with less of a swing). As far as the increase not being worth the loss in manueverability, I found no evidence of this. I suppose if you were frequently guessing wrong which volley you needed to hit (forehand instead of backhand or vice versa) and thus frequently needed to switch quickly, a lower swingweight would be more usefull. However I rarely see this happen exept when one team is dominating another in doubles (poaching frequently and beating up the net player) and even then I can't imagine a lighter swingweight making a difference to the losing team. Certainly not enough to justify losing the advantages of a higher SW. Has anyone else considered this?
