I have to think that since most modern racquets are hollow that a differentiator in the feel department would have to be from something like filling the hollow core. Sounds very interesting indeed. Fail to truly understand how adding mass couldn't add swingweight, but if it doesn't then I guess greater mass meeting the incoming ball helps in the "Coefficient of Restitution" that they refer to.

Yet the swingweight for the Donnay white 99 is a paltry Swingweight: 295, and that just doesn't seem enough to me - is mass going to save me on court?

ps. does Rusedski in any way haunt the halls of Donnay Castle anymore? I hope not...
sw 295 is unstrung, about 325 strung..
