Transition from 2U to 3U? No power with 3U?
Currently, I use the headlight Ti-10 2U and also have 3U Ti-10 and MP88. I can clear further and higher with 2U Ti-10 versus 3U Ti-10 and MP88. In terms of absolute length, I think we're looking at about 3 ft difference (which is huge gamewise).
However, net play with 3U is better.
My question is how people transition from 2U to 3U, is it simply a matter of increasing swing speed to match the reduced mass (F=Mass x accel?), because i try to swing faster with the 3U, yet I can't match the length and height of my clears with my 2U racquet.
All racquets are strung to same tension of 22lbs and I'm a beginner.

I think the same player will have the same swing speed with a 3U or a 2U. High speed swing action requires that the racquet dimensions must be minimized in the swing direction to minimize air resistance.
