If that's the case, same swing weight means the rackets rotate equally easily around the fulcrum point/handle. The only difference is their resistance to linear acceleration, which is determined by their relative masses. In conclusion the lighter racket will swing easier (where swing means the overall motion of the racket, not only wrist action).

Oh ..wait ... this discussion was about subjective experiences.. forget I wrote all of this.
LOL, the abstract is also OK. But what is your subjective experience?
