Sounds like poster 32 uses shorter, straighter strokes that go thru the ball.
I"m more the opposite. Heavy top on forehand, heavy slice on backhand, and the lighter racket is just plain easier to control direction.
No need whatsoever for "plough thru" because I only hit flat against slower moving balls.
Against fast incoming balls, the goal is to add more spin to it, returning it with looper with heavy top or oval sliced underspin balls.
But if you can handle the weight of racket you're using, stick with it, it's perfect for you.
