    I am a 13 year old junior who is 4'10". My style of play is a defensive basliner. I was deciding between the Wilson steam 100, Wilson Juice 100L or Wilson Juice 100.Any racket you think will fit me better than those please Reccomend.

    Well, do you mind about not using Wilson? EDIT: What do you feel you are lacking from your racquet?

    Well, I understand, since that kind of racquet is suited for beginners who struggle to provide their own power. However, given your age and size, I wouldn't go too much over 300gr strung because you'll lack manoeuvrability for your defence. Not to mention it can get tiring in hot weather and long matches.

    I can think about Prince Rebel 98 Team or Head Graphene Speed S for example. Juices are rather power oriented, and if your arm is tender, it won't like it either, but the 100L is still worth a try. I think you should demo some of these racquets to get the one you prefer.

    Say, what strings and tension do you use?

    By reading the TW review, they mention the frame is a bit unstable. Granted, I doubt you'll meet very heavy hitters around your age, to it might also be worth a try.

    At that age (any age from 11-18), the Pure Drive, Head Instinct, TFight 295, and Blade 98 are all popular. I like them too. Maybe you could give one of them a try?

    Not the Prince? Well okay. Lightthestrom is right about the Tecnifibre TFight 295, good choice too. The Rebel 98 (not Team) and the Blade are roughly aiming for the same target, but I don't like their low static weight compared to their balance and swingweight. They swing heavier than they weight, to put it simply.
