Thanks ProTour630

I thought Pro Tour 630 was advocating a more flexible racquet, not a 60-stiffness racquet? Confused. I am recalling discussions about not hurting the arms of junior players.

My girl went with a Babolat 60 stiffness racquet, comfortable strings, and the Pro Penn Marathon balls and has never hit with more power yet control, and her arm does not tire on her even after a lot of serve practice.

Thanks again!

Hey TCF,
how do the Penn Marathons compare to regular wilsons? I use wilsons on hard and babolat on har tru in the hopper with my kid.

I like the Marathons because we are getting consistent bounces on both surfaces and more importantly, like Pro Tour said, they seem more arm friendly for drilling purposes.

Not sure about life span yet.

thank! think I will give it a try

My mistake. I knew that 70 was fairly stiff, but then got 70 confused with 60, thought that not so stiff was therefore in the 50s, etc. Even though I was researching stiffness specs only a week ago!

What kind of strings are you sticking with, for comfort's sake?

this is how I feel about strings
