    So far what im understand is that both use trampoline effect logic.
    To weak jump resulting weaker bounce.
    To strong jump also getting weaker bounce.
    & the correct momentum would bounce us higher.

    We can replace string but never able to replace shaft right.
    So, can both shaft & string counteract each other?
    I mean for example:
    If i had a very stiff racket & i cant generate enough power from it, i can reduce string tension.
    Or if i had to flex racket & i feel my stroke are to strong, i can increase string tension.

    I would say the two big points where they do not cancel each other would be racket lag on fast shots and net shots where flexibility has almost no impact whereas tension is a big deal.
