I want a control-oriented stick, so I search for heavier racquets, but all of them talk about the great power generated from it in the summary blurbs.

Can anyone decipher the summaries, or are they intentionally trying to attract every buyer to every racquet?

**Sorry for the rant!**
They're all similar, so just get one and stick with it. Go with the major frames:

Head Prestige Pro/MP
Head Speed MP
Wilson 6.1 95
Wilson Blade Tour
Dunlop 200
Prince Rebel 98
Yonex VCore 95
And if you want to side with the devil, Babolat Pure Control

These are the major players in control frames. They're all fairly similar, so just ask the magic 8 ball and get something.
When their tennis really matters, Babolat Reps use a Wilson.
