    String it higher - more control, less power

    M-fil what? If you say she hits flat, get her a good syn gut like PSGD or Gosen OG Micro. I'm assuming that since she is nationally ranked, cost really isn't an issue, so full string jobs of those two, and she should try Technifibre X-1 Biphase, one of the best multis out there.

    Upper 50s, low 60s. Try out different tensions, see what she likes best.

    The TF is a more powerful string than MFil Tour. If the purpose is to tame the power of the racket how is this suggestion going to help??

    String it higher or use a stiffer string like poly.

    I don't think a 12 years old girl should use poly.

    String it higher...the Mfil tour is not a good string imo...a good syn gut at 57-60lbs would be fine.

    x-1 is not one of the best, it is the best

    I'd be inclined to just string it as a poly/syn gut hybrid. This will give the best of both power and control. Start off with the syn gut crosses at mid tension/poly mains at about 2 lbs lower, and in future you can adjust from this reference point.

    The M-Fill string is a really good string IMO Doesn't move much until it needs to be restrung, low power, but still very soft/crisp.

    Luxilon Big Banger TiMo 110 will tame the power out of any frame. If it's too harsh for you, you can hybrid it with a not so powerful solid core syn gut and you'll be fine.
