Rankings: Swing weight

Published swing weight specs are based on an axis of rotation 10 cm (3.94 inches) from the butt. Low swing weight is good for “maneuverability” but bad for crushing through the ball on impact. Expert players prefer very high swing weights, with the touring pros customizing their racquets with lead tape to get over 350 for a dominating serve.
