  2. A heavier frame vibrates less.

  3. A heavier frame has a larger sweetspot.

  4. A stiffer frame generates more power.

  5. A stiffer frame has a larger sweetspot.

  6. A stiffer frame transmits more of the shock load to the arm than a more flexible frame.

  7. A stiffer frame provides a more uniform ball response across the entire string plane.

  8. A larger frame generates more power.

  9. A larger frame is more resistant to twisting.
