    I do this occasionally.....

    ....I love to play with the annual racquet selection map published in RSI Magazine.

    There really is something behind the science as I really tend to gravitate to frames that are very similar to my favorites.

    I wonder if there are many MRTs or retail guys out there that use the guides to help customers/clients in frame selection.

    At least for here, perhaps it would help alleviate the "what frame should I try" or "what frame is most like" threads......

    Thanks, VGP. Funny I don't see PK in the list.

    I think it's one of those weird two-piecers that has the rubber filler, so it's really kind of artificial flex that you don't feel on impact.

    Dude. 65 flex for the Pacific X Force sticks?

    How do they figure the number higher than the manufacturer's unstrung spec, and 5 points higher than TW?
