I have noticed that when i hit the ball around the outside of my racket it has a slightly fainter sound then on the inside.

Is this normal?

Hi Preston,

The wood has what they call a “sweet spot” which is in the middle of the racket.  Around the outside the wood isn’t as stable so it will make a sightly different sound and feel different as well.

About this sweet spot... is there an advantage to hitting the ball there?

It feels better when you hit it in that spot and the ball will come off a bit faster.
