Power Potential Basics
Crawford Lindsey, Tennis Warehouse, San Luis Obispo, CA, 93401

One — Power

On any racquet, the location with the highest power potential is the most powerful location.

The racquet with the highest power potential at a given spot will hit the ball faster. Power potential measures power!

Conclusion: If you are looking for power, simply choose the racquet with the highest power potential in the location where you hit the ball.

Two — Comfort

Does the racquet move the ball or does the ball move, bend, twist, rotate the racquet? A more powerful racquet has less of the latter. Less of the latter means more comfort. More power means more comfort. Power potential is comfort potential!

Conclusion: If you are looking for comfort, simply choose the racquet with the highest power potential in the location where you hit the ball.

Three — Control

Higher power potential means less racquet movement, bending, twisting, and rotation. Such alterations in racquet trajectory result in unintentional changes in ball trajectory. That means less directional control. More power means more control. Power potential is control potential!

Conclusion: If you are looking for control, simply choose the racquet with the highest power potential in the location where you hit the ball.
