I just bought a Head Titanium racquet 49.99$ can

I dont really have any knowledge in racquets and I bought this racquet unfortunatly the tape is fucked up so I will bring her back at the store but what I want to know is that : I took a average size racquet because i'm not really into the oversize ones even if im a beginner , but a ''good beginner'' on the verge of becoming intermediaire maybe already one.This racquet seems to have less power than my last one which was a unknown old racquet , but the cords were tighter.

1.When you become better , do you need less power in your racquet because you already produce your own power or the better you get the more powerful a racquet you should bought ?

2.When the cords are tight the power is stronger , which is better tight or not? ( not talking about women duh lol )

3.This racquet seems to be a bit light , what does that mean for me ? It seems i would prefer a little bit heavier one but not sure why ...

Im just a little bit lost in all of that since my old racquet I cant even inter in any category.

better players tend to go for rackets which are less helpful, less powerful and therefore more control oriented.

tighter strings shrink the sweetspot and give more control. looser strings open up the sweetspot and give more power. tension is very much a preference.

lighter rackets tend to be easier to swing and more powerful. as your strokes develop and get longer this is suited to a heavier frame

Pro racquets are heavier and control oriented, lebeuf.
