stiffness and string tension
i have two rackets right now
yonex mp-30 strung at ???? but low maybe <20
sotx woven 8 strung at 26x24
the yonex is a medium flex and the sotx is stiff, when i play, the yonex feels alot better for me and i was wondering if this is due to the string tension or the racket stiffness? i want to buy another racket but dont kno if i want stiff or medium so i was wondering if anyone can help me?
the sotx to me has this very tight feeling like i was hitting with a bat, and the mp gives me a soft feel like hitting with a thin rod. wat do you think is the cause of this?

string tension for sure, 26lbs is probably too tight for you, try stringing it at 23-24 lbs next time

the best way to find out is stringing both racquets with the same string, same tension.
that way you'll be able to isolate out variables.
but more than likely its the string tension as the others have said...
