Hi,

What racket would you recommend for children? (mostly under 12 yo). I looked at some rackets on Amazon, there doesn't seem to be any racket especially made for children. All good rackets seem to weigh at the very least 165g, which is fine for an adult but I think heavy for a child. Are there any good rackets that are lighter? I've had lighter rackets that I bought on local stores but they turned out completely useless, and lasted a month in average. Thanks.

Thanks. What about rubber? And are there any "whole" rackets? (blade+rubber)

165g is fine for a child. it’s about the weight of my daughters setup (she has played with it since she was 9) friendship 729 fx 1.5mm lightweight rubbers that lasts «forever» and a light allround blade here we usually go for something like KTL instinct with 1,5mm friendship 729fx rubbers on both sides. A cheap lightweight setup that a young player can use for a year or two. (Yes, the 729 rubbers Keep the friction for a long time)

My 9 y/o recently switched to a lighter setup Xiom Offensive S + Xiom Vega Europe max both sides
He used to play with some Donic 5ply plus two max tenergies and did just fine.
