Yes you are correct. I remember playing fairly regularly against a guy who used one of those new fangled Prince big head aluminum racquets, while I was using a Head Arthur Ashe Comp II, normal size racquet.
Boy did those aluminum racquets vibrate, but he could hit more topspin with that racquet than people with a normal head size.
