    My 17 y.o. daughter is using two Yonex Ultimum RQ 1000s that I bought from TW a few years ago and they're starting to show some wear. They're also a pain to restring 'cause the grommets are breaking and I can't find new ones. Can anyone recommend a fairly light, 27 in., stiff, head light, racquet maybe 110ish we can consider? I've looked at quite a few specs and nothing has really clicked yet. Thanks.

    Take a look at the Babolat Drive Z 110. It seems to meet your criteria.

    You could call up the guys from the sport center in the ******* to see if they have the grommets. Also, send an email to TW to see if they have any in stock.

    If you go to, you can view tennis raquets by weight or size. I just demoed a Yonex RQis1 Tour and found it to be very light and arm friendly. It's only 95 inches though. Their demo program is great. You can get up to 4 raquets at a time and try them for a week. Everybody has such different opinions that the only way to know which one is best for you, or your daughter in this case, is to try it before you buy. I also have a Wilson K Factor KBlade Team 104 (Same as Williams sisters use). It is light and has a good balance between power and control.
