Geez Sherlock, what an epiphany! Hit the ball harder, and you get a more powerful shot. Perhaps you could teach us about how stepping in with your weight creates more power, or using more powerful strings to generate more pace, or using a racket with a bigger head to generate pace, or any multitude of things to increase power. I don't think any of us know that at all. No need to consult Dr. Watson on this one.

My point they don't. This is an engineering design matter, and they don't have the slightest clue what beam width does. They just rant on about how they love the 16mm beam of the PS85, how they love the box beam design, why don't they come out with a thin beam Blade, etc, etc etc. They don't have the slightest clue that these beam designs HINDER a racket's performance. Thus the blind suggestion returning to the KFActor thin beam design.
