    If youve only played a few months, I woudl recommend A prince tt-scream os(I use this with about 30 grams of lead added) Or a tt-bandit/warrior. Id stay away from teh head heavy racquets, and lean more towards the 300g even balance or 1-2 points head light racquets. I find super light os frames kill your arm if you mishit(which you will alot) So getting a 300g racquet with even or slightly headlight balance is going to be good, until you learn to apply swingspeed, and SAFELY add power to your shots. THis is w hy i reccomend a slightly higher power racquet(Cmon we all want to hit hard from the get go. Getting a higher powered racquet, is gonna boost up your morale, and keep you away from trying to add your own wrongly added power)

    However, racquets in the triple threat series, might be too stiff depending on your actual body. If then, you might want to consider looking at the liquid mental Radical(Its a bit heavier by about 40 grams, but less stiff)

    I DO NOT Reccomend any of the wilson hammer line, because of thier head heavieness, and strain on the arm.

    The TT Warrior is pretty stiff and harsh. It gave me a bit of wrist trouble when I was demoing it.

    Excellent choice for a first nice racquet. I reccommend the MP.
