    Would like some recommendation for you experts here.

    My 7 year old daughter has been using a junior racket for her tennis lessons. She has improved quite a bit recently and the other day, I let her use a Pure Drive to hit. I was surprised that she hit better with it compared to the junior racket, especially from the baseline. I am now considering getting her an adult racket.

    I am looking for an even-balanced racket, of standard length. It should be lighter than Pure Drive as she feels that the pure drive is a bit heavy for her. Has anyone any recommendations? Please let me know. FYI, my daughter is 124cm tall, and of medium built.

    Thanks.

    Look at the Pure Storm MP. 10.4 oz strung. Babolat Drive Z Tour, 10.1 oz. Head LM 4 or 5. Volkl Cat 4. Prince Turbo Beast MP.

    There's a few for starters.

    What about PD itself (this is a question)? Kids tend to like it (it's a good looking stick) but I am worried about its stiffness. Would it make a good starter stick (probably with softer sting at lower tension)?
