Rankings: Torque rankings

Low Torque is good because it means the force twisting the hand backward on impact is low and therefore arm stress is low. The rankings under the five benchmark conditions were weighted according to the severity of the Torque under each, then summed to get the total. The most severe Torque was under the Second Benchmark Condition (110 mph serve). To see the range of Torque values under each of the Benchmark Conditions, click here. The ranking is from best (Prince Graphite Classic OS) to worst (Fischer GDS Take Off 1210).
