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

Polarization index formula and most of the above figures for stock racquets from this thread: http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?t=398044
thanx for the nice and quick write-up. I just find this MgR/I theory interesting and if it works then everybody has a special value depending on playing style, technique (and of course rubber bands, wristbands, humidity etc )

but this if would really be a great starting point for modding a new racket...

sorry for the hijack PP - back on topic: out of your older posts I know that you have already tried very high swingweights - good luck with your experiment!
