I have only seen a few people play with prince rackets but the people Ive played with have had immense smash power. I was wondering if this has anything to do with the odd Y-joint?
Does anyone know the purpose of the Y-joint?

I used to play with a Prince Y-joint (the Response, a now obsolete model) and that wasn't a bad racquet actually.
The idea behind the Y-joint was to create a larger sweet spot by elongating the main strings, and to construct a stiffer frame with little torsion. This is just what a hard smasher would look for in a racquet, so maybe that's why they were attracted by Prince. There may be some truth to it, what do I know, but I think it's important to distinguish between facts and marketing BS. You won't get a hard smash just because you have a certain racquet. It's the player, not the racquet, that produces the power.
