Again, if your 11 yo has the swing to need lux, it would be better in my view to put the nxt in the mains at 54 lbs and the 4g lux in the crosses at 49 lbs. Maybe a little lower depending on the racket and swing speed. Lux (and all poly's) take power away from the racket and add an element of control and spin. Having the nxt in the mains will still provide power while lux crosses will tone it down a little bit. But, as I said, I would caution that an 11 you needs lux. Go to a good local pro and ask them if the player is ready to use a poly.
