    ...Hahaaa!! I KNEW that would get some of you guys !!!! Seriously, here's my question : regarding JUNIOR racquets in particular (but feel free to expand on 'regular' frames as well!) ---all other comparative things being the same....would a 'same' racquet with a higher swingweight be ASSUMED to be more 'stable' ?? Meaning that when comparing 2 similar frames (headsize and shape/weight/balance/general compositional equivalence/etc...) would the frame with the higher swingweight be the 'better' and more stable frame ?? I'm actually looking at modifying a few junior frames...and one that is similar to aNOTHER has a s.w. of almost 40 higher than the other.....which is good...but ONLY if it 'helps' !!! A little 'sketchy' I admit....but something a little different for you to ponder..... :)

    swingweight alone doesn't qualify stability.
