    Hello, first I have to say that it has to fit for a girl (which means the weight of the racket would be significant).
    The two rackets are-
    Wilson BLX Pro open:

    or Babolat AeroPro Team -

    We belive that the Wilson is a better stick, however we worry that it would be just to heavy for her, which will cause arm issues, or simply being tired out too fast.

    She is around 55 kg, 1.73m high, 17 years old.

    Does anyone have an experience with these rackets? any pros and cons for each one of them?
    I heard that with the Babolat you have to swing fast and aggresively to get good depth, which can tire out aswell, is it true?
    we would be glad to hear opinions :)

    Thank you very much :)

    it is almost impossible to demo rackets here, this service doesn't exist by where we live...
    She rather buy a racket of what I listed, but before the purchase it is necessery to hear opinions from experienced players with these rackets :)
    I forgot to mention, she plays around 2.5 years, i belive 3-3.5 NTRP.
    Thanks :)

    Na, the BLX Pro Open isn't that heavy. just gotta practice with it to get the muscles used to it.

    Im using the pro open with a little lead at 12. Its not a heavy stick but im not a teenage girl..lol.

    I did see a girl that age crushing with a dunlop 500, which is a similar stick to the pro open. This girl was on a pretty high level though.

    How does it play? I used the nPro Open for about 3 months a few years ago, but never gave either the Kfactor nor the BLX versions a fair try.
