But I will say that regardless of the scientific validity of the formula, it does work for me. I have found when I tune my racquets using this formula (and then fine tune) they just feel right. It just clicks.
1. Have you done any 'blind test' to verify that 'it just clicks'?
2. If you need to 'fine tune' some more - does it mean you end up with MgR/I --not-- being equal to 21.0? if so, doesn't that mean that 21.0 is not any magic number? It's like saying that the 'best' weight for a tennis racket is 290 grams - but you have to fine tune it to suit you. For a player A he will fine tune it to 310gr. Other will tune it to 280 gr. the rackets will feel great for a respective player. Does that mean that the 'best' weight is 290 gr, or not?
Look, if it makes you play better with believing that your racket should be at MgR/I=21.0 than by all means use it. I believe I play better in blue shorts and black wristbands. But let's not claim there's some scientific proof or evidence that racket with MgR/I = 21.0 is 'the optimal one'. No one showed that, including travlerajm.
