I was fully relaxing my wrist throughout the wall test's. My shot's were going to the right, left and exactly where I intended.

I tried the rough method. I could feel the racket pressing against the knuckles. Unfortunately, no matter how much lead I added at 7", I couldn't feel the handle pulling forward on the distal portion of the fingers. I tried swinging quickly and slowly.

My aim with experimenting on choking down the handle was to get an exact number of how much choking down affects MgR/I. If we can work out how much different equipment factors affect MgR/I, then people don't have to return to the practice wall every time they make a change.

With most of these questions I could have found out the answers for myself, but I got nowhere with the wall tuning. Thanks muchly for answering my questions.
