Slightly disappointed that this topic is drawing to an end... It seems the hypothesis changed from "beginners have it correct by using panhandle because professionals are using outdated technique, and hence use high tension to 'compensate' for 'old' technique" (from the first post) and turned into "I wonder what the difference is between a low tension and high tension racket with different weights". Oh well.

by the way somewhere along the line you (and many others) started to mix "panahandle grip" in this topic discussion which is not primary focus (at best got refer as "secondary data input" point in this topic .. understand the difference).
** Please read OP post, Thread topic name and later on plain english hypothesis given (as if point blank question was not good enough to understand) which is very consistant. **
Basic grip discussion and Panhandle grip discussion is NOT Mutully exclusive (either OR state).

I was thinking the same about myself, but was surprised by how much better my defense could be (never actually perceived myself to be struggling before) and how much I needed to work on my smashing technique (had decent power before, but was kind of brute-forcing it which doesn't work with lighter rackets ). On the other hand that was like 1,5-2 years ago and I've improved dramatically since then - in pretty much all aspects. So maybe it wasn't just the racket change

The meaning of Power of a shuttle , is it how far it goes or how fast it goes ? I think this is something that make this conversation so confusing. Also , at what range of speed you are comparing in the first place. I think you have to set a certain speed that you want to produce in the first place if you really want to compare the tension. Or maybe we should go and ask Lin Dan what tension he use...haha
