we are going to order her a bit nicer racquet now that i see she is serious about me teaching her. she has been playing with a walmart 39$ one which surprisingly was really not horrible (not great either but really not as bad as i would have thought, strings were terrible lol) and there are a few choices we are looking at. but none have strings included to start. i see they have the free option of the extreme syn gut or im happy to get it strung with something else. i would like to keep it lower priced maybe 10$ (roughly) or less since she is starting out. at least up till now she has not complained much about her elbow except the first few outings but i think thats because she never played before. ever since though she has not mentioned anything (ill ask her to be sure) like i would not order her kevlar (at least from reading on them) and even the really hard poly's, also if possible something durable so the dont need re-string all the time and i dont know she will treat them. i appreciated the help with the multi's you all had (im going to order both racquets this week for me and her) and ive been really torn on what to order for her. just not at all sure for a beginner where to have her start. the rep from tw suggested multi's and suggested addiction, and one other one which i dont have in front of me. but as i said in my other thread last time i had a racquet strung was so many years ago all these choices are crazy. thank you again really do appreciate the forum!!
