Feels great dry swinging. Can't wait to try it on the court!
I plugged your numbers into the customization worksheet ( using our measurements for our test RDIS 300. The screenshot below shows the results. That configuration increased power by 4.34% and increased plowthrough in the center of the racquet by 10.8%.

Remember, power potential is the percent of impact speed (ball speed plus racquet speed) returned by the racquet. Plowthrough Index is the percent of racquet speed at the impact location (center of racquet) that is retained by the racquet after impact (i.e., "plowthrough"). (If you aren't familiar with all the power toolsópower potential, shot speed, sweet spot zones, shot distance, hittingweight, plowthrough, racquet head speedówe have a video tutorial that gives an overview of all these by going to and clicking "video tutorial" in the lower left corner of the page.
