You get out of it what you put in power wise. The main thing with the low swing weight is that you need racquet head speed. If you have a slower swing or you prefer heavy swing weight you may want to go with something else. I get nice power with a med fast swing and good timing. If I reach back a little more I can rip it. It not so low powered that can't flick one over from the baseline though. I like it this way. I'm not good enough to control extra power from the racquet. Poly should be on the low side. Something soft. I'm going to try bab rpm 17g in the mains at 53.
