My not-so scientific opinion is simply it's all weight and swingweight.

To get that "wand that can do anything" feel I think comes from a really conducive weight germane to your own strength and stretch, and then a swingweight that is always-ok no matter what part of the court or situation you find yourself in.

Never-strained is what I am translating comfortable to mean therefore.

Or is it stringbed responsiveness and flex, that elusive "feel" of a racquet?

There are definitely some ineffables that somehow go in to making a racquet feel like an extension of the arm...

To me the feels comes mainly from the weight/swingweight.
The strings, flex, materials etc are a bit secondary.
