- Quality of the string job
- Style of Play

For kids who can play, as thin as you can get, as forgiven as it can get. Thinner string can be strung with low tension and thinner string gives more bite on the spin.
Move up to thicker when breakage is getting you to high.

Best Option. Any soft 1.18 multi-filament string. Just to name one Tecnifibre 1.18 X-One BiPhase or NRg2. But there will be more options.

I grew up on NRG2 17. Still in my top 5 overall strings at spot #2 simply because it just works. However, it is not better nor more durable than Babolat VS.
