You are not going to get it right first time, and if you need this kind of advice, your technique will be improving a lot anyway so what is good now will be no good in a short while.

So buy something that is cheap eg ex demo frame. Get a racket you can make heavier with lead tape, and generally modify and play around with.

Save up your money and get a stringing machine. Find out which strings and tension suit you and worry less about the racket. Go down the gym.
