I think he’s referring to the paint scheme.
He said the 95 was the first to have PWS at 3&9 in 2005/6. You're thinking he thinks the white paint was heavier? LOL He did say they were symmetrical so I think he meant the paint scheme but he said PWS.

Look at the per centages at sweet spot for the PS90!

Right at the throat over 50 and only mere 40 at the center, where you would think the most powerfull spot should be.

Felt this same phenomena the other day playing with my Angell TC100 compared to Babs PDTs, which I play regularly. Thin rim seems to bring sweet spot closer to tha handle.

Many racquets are like that. It's more about mass typically. There is not enough mass in most frames near the top of the hoop to distribute the power higher. There are ways that frames are built to try and work around this problem, but it really does help power to hit lower in the hoop on a lot of frames.

Makes perfect sense, yet most the diagrams in adds are drawn far more at the middle.
