I still don't get this type of mentality when it comes to "heavier" rackets.
The weight of the frame is what's good about it.
For serving, the added mass really shoves the ball. For volleying, you just place the frame out in front and block. The added mass and stability makes for a rock-solid volley.
I'm convinced people arm the ball too much these days.
