If a ball with a lot of topspin and a flat ball is hit at the same speed, the topspin one will feel heavier.
It's easier to generate racket head speed with a lighter racket, to be able to brush up the ball more, but with a heavier racket you get the spin and heaviness through the plow through effect, by hitting through the ball.
Yeah, don't think it has anything to do with racquet weight but topspin is certainly a factor especially on shots inside the service line or on a volley.
