Your daughter has a lot on her plate with the new academy and the grip change. This is not the time to introduce her to a new racquet. The babolat pure drive is a very good racquet, I would though consider making the change with the strings to soften things up..that in itself would minimize any long term problems with the arm. There is a lot of technology that goes into a racquet so don"t get caught up just looking at a stiffness number to determine if it is the best racquet for your daughter. A stiffer racquet will add power, control and more predictability without necessarily being harmful to the arm, even for a 10 year old. Talk to her her coach, who knows her game and see what he advises.
