This is an excellent racquet for younger, beginning players as it is lightweight (250g) and easy to maneuver but still has a large enough head to allow for the occasional mistake, the head size being 100″. The large head size also accomodates spin well, and because junor players are not always as powerful, in some cases spin is their primary weapon. Also, the modern, ‘cool’ looking racquet is available for under £55 ($100) meaning its a great racquet to start out with. However, this racquet is probably too light for an older player and would fly out of their hands. But overall we rated it 4.2 out of the maximum 5.
