I would say that the first spec is to have a strung weight greater than 12 oz. The balance used to more head-light in previous eras of graphite, but today's favored setup seems to be 4 or 6 points HL for more plowthru.
My only evidence is empiric. I can't see the power/plow through on a 51RA frame he gets. I've hit with frames that soft, and there is no power there at all.
