Backpain from lower SW racquets
I play with a Extrem Pro 2.0 and Dunlop 200 both SW in the upper 320s and at least 11.8 strung. A few days ago I tried a Dunlop 400 Tour with a SW of 306 and 11.6. Now I have a aching back for 3 days now. I've never had this before. Could it be the lighter racquet cause I am hesitant to use it again.
I could create some great serves with the lighter racquet due to faster RHS.

The general recommendation is to use the heaviest racquet you can swing without losing swing speed or having your arm feeling excessively tiree during play.

The extra mass in the frame helps absorb the shock from striking the tennis ball.

It sounds like the Dunlop 400 Tour felt so good you put extra effort into your serving - and your back was not ready for this extra explosive movement.

Do you do off court conditioning to get your back in shape for ball bashing?

I think it was the low SW of the Dunlop 400 Tour that caused my back ache. I will stick with SW at least 325.
