Is there something wrong with my reasoning?
Also, if I'm wrong (which I'll most likely be), would adding a tad bit of lead tape at 12 increase the amount of spin by a little in a depolarized setup?
Its technically not less spin being depolarized. Its just that polarized has the bigger loop action with its spin whereas as Depol is flatter. Pol allows a whippier shot.
Yes, we know it's all about the technique. But if your racquet collapses every time you volley..you need to add some lead to it...
