    Hi guys,
    just wondering, both LCW and LD use Extra Stiff Rackets (VT-ZF2 and N90ii), what would happen if they used a flexible racket such as a VT60 or something.

    Any ideas
    Thanks in advance!!

    They would have to slow down their swing.

    Will find out in 20 years. Once they are in the 50's, I think they will switch to more flexible rackets once their waist strength is weaker.

    they would hate it.

    players need to match their speed and power with racket stiffness and string tension. them using a flexible racket will be akin to us using a racket with a soft bamboo shaft. the response will be slow and accuracy will be compromised.
