what is your thinking based on experience? other coaches can also explain please..thnx for the time
It also depends on the frame's balance point. I have seen some kids play with frames where the head definitely seems to be too heavy for them, the way the racket moves during play. It is as if they are unable to control the lop-sided weight.
