Swingweight vs String tension

Would like some more power , should i lead to get more swingweight or lower the tension? Is there an actual difference between these two power sources?

Lower string tension raises launch angle. Higher static/swing weight gives more forward power (provided you can swing it effectively).

My 2 cents is if you are struggling with depth, lower tension. If you want to actually hit harder, add weight (again provided you can still swing it well).

Isn’t it easier to try lowering your tension or even going to a thicker gauge or stiffer string? There is so much you can do to tune a racquet by changing tensions, gauges and strings. Why bother customizing with lead?

Went with sw after testing both , went from 223sw to 330sw. The depth was still the same , 50cm in front of the service line , but the ball was exploding afterwards. In case anyone cares : Extreme Tour , 22kg Hyper g16L , 32.4 balance , 330 sw , extreme semi western fh grip , ohb.

IME sw is going to be the better option if you can do it
