Racquet Selection Map 2006

Our exclusive guide to help your customers find the perfect frame for their game.

By Crawford Lindsey

The Racquet Selector Map is a great tool for making “broad stroke” determinations about racquet characteristics. But there are a few subtle nuances hidden or unexplained by its basic layout. Awareness of these nuances will better enable you to assist your customer in choosing a new racquet. But first, we must make two clarifications about the Power Formula and its use in the map.

The Power Formula

First, it must be understood that the “power formula” is not a scientific or mathematical value, but only a convenient numeric representation of tendencies relating the role of headsize, length, flex, and swingweight to the feeling of power of the racquet. Second, the power formula best describes the relative size of the power area compared to another racquet, not the relative maximum velocity the racquet can generate. For example, racquet 111 at 2600/295 and racquet 69 at 2600/340 might have about the same size sweetspot, but the latter racquet will probably be more powerful in terms of maximum ball velocity, even though they have the same “power rating.” Why is this?

Sweetspot Power

In the sweetspot (the spot in the middle of the racquet about 16 cm from the tip), all racquets with the same swingweight will generate the same ball velocity at the same swing speed, stringbed stiffness being equal (see February 2006 article by Rod Cross for detailed explanation). Racquets with a higher swingweight will generate higher ball velocities for the same swing speed. The racquet does not bend and vibrate on a sweetspot impact, so flex has no influence and headsize only comes into play on off-center hits — larger headsizes generally offering more resistance to twisting. Thus, all racquets in a given row with the same swingweight are equally as powerful in the sweetspot, even though they have different power ratings. And within a given power rating column, the racquet with the highest swingweight will have the greatest sweetspot power, even though they all have the same power rating.

Sweet Area Power

As soon as you stray from the sweetspot, the bigger, stiffer racquets will lose a smaller percentage of the innate sweetspot power available to them. These racquets tend to bend and twist less, therefore losing less energy to nonproductive racquet reactions. Larger racquet heads move the weight of the frame farther from the racquet’s long axis, and it is the distance from the axis that is more influential in preventing twisting than is the amount of weight, though adding more weight at any given distance from the axis also increases resistance to bending and twisting. So, bigger-headed, lower swingweight racquets can become more powerful than smaller-headed, higher swingweight racquets on off-center hits. The farther you hit off-center, the more pronounced the effect. Therefore, what you experience as the racquet’s power is a combination of the ultimate power and the average power over an impact area.

Combined Power

First, let’s number the quadrants of the map clockwise 1, 2, 3, and 4 from the upper right quadrant. Then we will define two “generalized” variables: d represents the average distance from the long axis to the hoop of the head and w the average amount of weight located at that distance. We can then make the following generalizations about the racquets in each quadrant relative to the others.

The table assumes that as you go down a column, there is more weight in the head of the frame, and as you go to the left in a row, the head gets larger and the racquet gets longer and stiffer. There are exceptions, but in general, this is true. The assumptions in the last two columns describing control are these: the less the racquet twists, the more true the rebound, and the more the twist, the less the rebound velocity, providing a built-in safety valve against hitting too long. This latter point is a rather perverse view of control in that it defines hitting long as “out of control,” but feeding your opponent short meatballs is considered “in-control” because it at least is not an outright loss of a point. But this reasoning is congruent with the prevailing view held by many that a racquet’s intrinsic power and control are inversely related.

Power, Maneuverability, and Swing Speed

Swingweight is not just about power. It is also a measure of maneuverability. But it is an inverse relationship. Lower swingweight means more maneuverability and less intrinsic power, and higher swingweight means less maneuverability and more intrinsic power. But, in theory, because you can swing a more maneuverable racquet faster, you can make up for less intrinsic power by increasing the extrinsic power — i.e., by swinging faster. For this reason, the Racquet Selection Map shows all racquets in the same column as being equally as powerful — low swingweight but fast swing speed being considered as equivalent to high swingweight (built-in power) and lower swing speed.

This would seem a logical argument when explaining racquets to customers, but experiments have shown that lower swingweights don’t necessarily mean that the swing speed will increase, and further that, in most cases, using racquets within the range of swingweights in the marketplace, the player can choose to swing at whatever speed he/she chooses, independent of a particular swingweight (see the book Technical Tennis for more explanation). Using swing speed to affect power is more a matter of choice than it is about a necessary mathematical relationship between swingweight and swing speed.

Conclusion

The Racquet Selection Map is a great tool for quickly comparing racquets on maneuverability, power, and control. However, further differentiating the racquets by the probable size of the sweet area, the magnitude of the power of the sweetspot, and the unlikely affect of swingweight on swing speed, you can better pinpoint the difference between any two racquets and help your customer or student make an intelligent decision on which racquets to demo in their quest for a new frame.

Racquet Selection Map Key

  1. Power/Control (columns). (formula = length index × headsize × flex × swingweight) ÷ 1000. Length index calculation: 27” = 1.0, 27.5” = 1.05; 28” = 1.1, etc.
  2. Maneuverability (rows). RDC (Babolat Racquet Diagnostic Center) swingweight units.
  3. Racquet ID. The number in the grid correlates to the accompanying racquet list.
  4. Headsize. Midsize and midplus (≤104 sq. in.) have no indicator. Oversize (105-117 sq. in.) = • Superoversize (≥ 118 sq. in.) = :.
  5. Length. x = extended length. Standard length (27”) racquets have no indicator.
  6. Flex (RDC). a = < 60; b = 60-64; c = 65-69; d = 70-74; e = > 74. The higher the number, the stiffer the racquet.
  7. Company. Coded by number and color. See accompanying racquet list on the following pages.
  8. Racquet Quadrants and the Center of the Racquet Universe. The center of the racquet universe is located at the intersection of the two red lines. Approximately half the racquets lie to the right and left, and half above and below these lines. The lines divide the racquet universe into four color-coded quadrants — clockwise from top left: (1) quick power, (2) quick control, (3) stable control, (4) stable power. These characterizations provide a general vocabulary for comparing racquets.
  9. Racquet Finder List. The racquet list accompanying the map identifies each racquet and gives additional information. The map provides specific (very narrow ranges, anyway) swingweight, flex and power statistics, and general size and length characteristics. The racquet list specifies the length and size and further specifies weight, balance, and price.

How To Use It

  1. Ask questions. What are you looking for that your current racquet does not provide? What do you like most and least about your current racquet? What are the strengths and weaknesses of your game?
  2. Locate current racquet on map. If the racquet is not in the list, take measurements.
  3. Locating potential racquets. Depending on the answers to the above questions, draw an imaginary arrow (a wide or skinny one) from your present racquet in the desired direction for power and maneuverability.
  4. Narrowing the field. Shrink the choices using the length, headsize, and flex codes to match customer preferences.
  5. Selecting racquet demos. Once the choices are narrowed, locate the racquets by number in the racquet list.
