Hi everyone,
I have a 10 yrs old junior (5'1) who has been using Wilson K Factor KSixOne 26 Junior Racquet for couple years. His swing is fine but does not produce a lot of power when striking the ball especially when he returns against a much bigger and older kids. It seems that his racquet is too light in my opinion. Should he get a regular size adult racquet? Any recommended decent Wilson racquet that is around $100 or less? Any help is greatly appreciated.

My son moved to a Wilson kSix-One Lite on the advice of his coach. He didn't like the balance so I threw on a leather grip and overgrip and he liked that better.

Thanks! Beside Wilson, what are others that should be considered for around $100?

you should let him demo some regular adult sized racquets and see how he responds. he might be ready for a full length racquet.

if you're looking for a racquet under $100 TW has a section full of them under liquidation.

IMO the liquidmetal radical is a good place to start.

there's a k six-one team which is pretty light. that's the closest thing i could think of.

If he is 5'1'' I think he can wield a normal sized adult racket.
My little sister who is on the high school team is only 4'11'' and uses a full sized racket. She is a small girl also.
