I do not believe "HIT" is measurable, as there is NO HIT MEETER. I thnk hit come down to like a Judges Opinion when judging something like Western Equation, or Dressage in a Horse Show. It is not like Grand Prix Showjumping where pricing winder is easy. Time, Number of Jump Cleared, and Last Error Points Penalized.
Friend had what he believe was Balabushka very solid hit, other favorite is Titlist Conversions, as old wood is very dense and feels good.
Interpetation of hit could change if your arthritis is flailing up, like taste changes if your drink with meal change from black coffe to coffee with sugar or cream.
What I consider Hot Spicy Food, Sid what other consider not for human consumption, because they do not like REAL HOT Like Ghost, Scorpion, Reeper Hot Peppers.
