This really is a great thread. I think the key to finding a perfect racket is:

- find the right head size

- find the right swing weight (which is usually done with customization)

- tune the power with string bed tension/ stiffness (which is done with a mix of spacing/ string pattern) and type of string

- unless you want to risk injury, get a relatively soft racket

What is shocking to me is how Babolat has become so popular. Is this defiance against science, perhaps a post-modern thing and a rejection of objectivity (just joking. Sort of....).
