    Lots of cost effective sticks right now on TW. How big are you? What is your style of play? A great bang for the buck stick right now is the Dunlop mfil 200 with 16x19 pattern for 69 bucks...

    a good stating point would be a 110 square inch racquet, easy to hit with and forgiving when hitting of center shoots IMO

    right now there are tons of good rackets to try at that level. Pretty much any of the prince 03 color rackets (red, blue, etc, just not white), or numbered Wilson ncode line (ei 1-4, just not 6.1) would be worth a demo. Also check out head metallix line.

    Basically anything with strings.

    Get something cheap and invest the savings in lessons. Much better return on investment. You'll know when its time to step up to a serious ($$$) racquet.

    Trust me, you'd do your self a favor by buying a cheap $20.00 racquet for now. When you start developing as a player and you really know why a bad racquet is a bad racquet then and only then is the right time to buy a new racquet.
