Don't forget that radar measurements calculate the speed of the ball as the striker hits it,not the speed with which it arrives to the returner.Having said that,I can easily believe that a heavy wooden racquet propelled by a guy doing one armed push ups every day could really pound the ball.In my humble opinion the marketing genius' that have pushed the lie that lighter racquets are better(than heavier) have done more to harm the game than any one other factor.What I can't believe is all the presumably grown up adults whining about how heavy their 12 ounce frame feels after three sets.Little girls used to play with wood.Why can't a grown up use a grown up's frame?Perhaps the eighty year olds playing at Palm Springs need to swing a 10 ounce racquet but why should anyone else?
