I'm in the exact same state you are. Tried a couple and liked them all. So I decided to go on the budget setup since it didn't really matter. I still have a ways to go on my technique but I can tell what I enjoy hitting with and what I don't.
MSV focus 17 @ 55 and Gosen OG @ 57. $10
Ill probably experiment with some lead tape since my session yesterday made me feel that the racquet is a little underweight. I'll take your advice and go with the 3 and 9.
