I started with a 90" racquet and now I can use any size racquet that they make now. The problem with using a bigger racquet early on is that you will never be comfortable switching to a smaller model in the future. Unfortunately, there aren't a lot of small novice to intermediate level racquets on the market anymore. So I recommend that you find a 95" and train yourself to hit the middle of the stringbed. The feeling of a clean shot on one of these frames is very gratifying. And the nice thing about lower powered racquets is that they allow you to take a full stroke now and deliver more power when you're used to them later. You might want to take a look at this:

From there, the racquet finder button will give you a long list of similar racquets.
