Now, I have demoed racs. with slightly diff. specs either way and hated them. Both racs. I like above are 95 heiads. Is the answer perhaps directly proportional to the ratio of weight to the frame's balance?
A couple of months ago I did an experiment. I tried to set up two rackets with different specs, but tried to get the same feel. Despite one being heavier than the other, They played very similar and the weight difference wasn't that much noticeable as I would have expected.

The two rackets had the same MgR/I and the same curve, only moved upward.

I would love to know the curves of your racket and your MgR/I.

Could you provide your balance in cm and measure the swingweights?

In this thread this the curve I mean (the volkl and the babolat)
