For comparison, some stock racquets (higher is more polarized):

radical 1,30
wilson ktour 1,25
exo red 1,20
aerpro team gt 1,33
pure storm gt team 1,22
pure storm gt 1,27
pure drive gt 1,34
bio 500 1,25
bio 500t 1,17
bio 300 1,18
speed 300 1,23
extreme mp 1,18
speed elite 1,13 1,07
rebel team 95 1,18
295 vo2max 1,24
290vo2max 1,26 1,19
six one team 1,24
blx pro open 1,22
blx six one tour 1,24
YOUTEK IG Speed 18x20 1,18
2013 BLX Blade 1,23
Rebel 95 w/ stringholes 1,28
Yonex Rdis 200 1,30

Polarization index formula and most of the above figures for stock racquets from this thread: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=398044
No rubber band, 175 lbs 5'11"

Interesting exercise but I think it gives a guesstamation at best because everyone has different bio-mechanics (and rubber bands).

At the end of the day you gotta swing it to find out if it works for you.
