    Good point and I forgot to mention that. In fact, if you want a loud BOOM, go lower tension. It will be a loud deep BOOM. High tension makes a higher pitch BOOM, not as impressive as the deep loud BOOM when you smash.

    Of course this is assuming you can maximize the racket and string to produce the BOOM.

    Well the problem wasn't that I had a fast swing speed, it was that I wasn't having a consistent swing speed, sometimes fast, sometimes not as fast. If I wanted to, I could produce a loud boom, but most of the time, I didn't have the swing speed. I'm getting better at that though.

    Good. Then keep a lower tension. Because a lower tension does not require you to swing that fast anyways.
    Thanks for backing me up dinkalot lol.

    I find that 24lbs is good for me, and I can get a good sound about 80-90% of the time. It's been a month since I first started this thread, and I've been working on a consistent swing speed.

    No, I've been using 23lbs for a while, and after I broke my racquet, I just went up 1 lb. Not that much.

    i dont think the racket has much to do with the sound.
    of course if the racket swings faster i assume its going to make a bigger 'boom!'
    but what really determines the sound is, as somone previously mentioned, the string tension.
    Lower tensions will definitely create a deeper Boom!
    whereas higher tensions will create a piercing boom!

    Yep.....explosive swings with no slice will generate the clearest sound and with the most repulsive feel.
