Rankings: Shock

Shock should be low, to minimize the internal/potential energy load on the racquet resulting from impact, which causes frame vibration. The Shock rankings under the five benchmark conditions were weighted, then these weighted ranks were summed to produced the weighted sum that determined the overall rank. To see the range of Shock values under each of the Benchmark Conditions, click here. The ranking is from best (Prince Graphite Classic OS) to worst (Fischer GDS Takeoff 1210).
