what is your thinking based on experience? other coaches can also explain please..thnx for the time
Tennisfan, I would have the kid test both and listen as to his preference. Racquet preference can be different from person to person, including kids, and also dependent on amount of training ande experience. I would not put a hard rule on that based on age.
