Maybe we need real specs like those from Novak and Almagro, in order to conclude something, but all in all it's allways a personal preference for each player, not some right or wrong numbers...
But, I apreciate a lot your efforts and theory, and there's allways some fire on it...
As jstout pointed out, 392 is very close the the statistical apparent optimum. Also, notice that the sample size is lower at the high end of the player list than at the low end. And you may have noticed that my racquets are at 390, which I find to work best for me after years of experimentation.
