    This topic gets me insanely curious.
    How would you arrange these racquets from highest to lowest power? What racquets do they play similar to? What's your grip style?

    Fischer M-Speed Pro 1, n6-1 95", n6-1 90", O3Tour MP, M-Fil 200, Diablo MP, Diablo Mid, Volkl V-10 MP, RDX 500 MP.

    Partial lists are welcome.
    Please put in any others that you think should be included between these.
    (Please don't post unless you have actually hit with the racquets you include.)

    RSI has taken a lot of the guesswork out it. Here's the power level ratings for racquet models of the last two years.

    2004

    2005

    A few of the sticks you listed aren't on the list, but most of them are.

    Those RSI powere indices are good for getting a general idea about power, but they assume that all of the rackets will be swung at the same speed, which simply isn't true.

    Looking at the nPro Surge on this list, it has it as a low Flex rating (59), low power racquet (1800). However, it is supposed to be stiff and similar to these racquets:

    Prince Turbo Shark MP 2240
    Head Liquidmetal Instinct 2042
    Babolat Pure Drive 2222
    Wilson nPro Surge 1800

    It actually seems close in power to the RDX500, a players racquet.

    Yonex RDX 500 1741

    Am I missing something here?
