    shes had problems with tennis elbow (using a prince thunder than weights 7oz) so thats a problem. Anyways I am getting her a new stick and have been trying to find something kinda lightweight so she doesn't freak out but softerflex for her elbo. So far these have come up and are at a good price (but that doesnt matter if theres something a lot better) prostaff extreme 6.7, yonex rq-ti long and reg OS. Thanks for any comments

    lightweight hollow racquets are worse for your arm becuase they give more shock

    Yes, the weight is not the whole thing. Tennis elbow has a lot to do with how you hold your racquet and how you hit the ball. One could quickly develop tennis elbow if you use poor mechanics to force some serious spin on the ball. I know it first hand. It happened to me.

    Best cure for tennis elbow: good mechanics and excercise your hand. Get a soft ball, about the size of a tennis ball, or slightly smaller, and squeze repeatedly for about 10 minutes 2 to 3 times a day. You will be surprised how quickly that cures tennis elbos.

    My wife who has had elbow/arm problems for a few years recently switched to the Yonex RDX 300 SM. Since the change she has not had any recurrences of elbow/arm problems.
