4. Plow-Through "Plow-through" is a term used by players to describe the feeling of a solid hit with little shock or vibration, with the perceived result of greater ball velocity. It is the degree to which the racquet wins the collision with the ball, maintaining as much of its pre-impact velocity as possible.

A lighter racket will give you more power and be easier to swing, whereas a heavier racket will give more control and plow through on your shots. So it is worth considering just how light you need to go, based on your playing style, any existing injuries you may have and the level of tennis you’re likely to be playing.
