specs seem alright for a beginner. the head is relatively large, but not so large that you will soon grow out of it. seems like a good option to learn on

In my opinion, wilson is the best for beginners. My brother started playing with wilson from the first minute he touched a raquet and now he is top 10 in the nation at 12's.

Check out a video with him!

i dont think wilson rackets are the cause of him being in the top 10. maybe it has something to do with talent and ability

Re: Beginners Racket:: Babolat Power Game

Are the strings that comes with this pre-strung racket any good?
Should I replace it as soon as i get my racket?

Re: Beginners Racket:: Babolat Power Game

babolat usually put good strings in their rackets. the strings in this racket won't be as good as the one they put in an aero pro drive for example. but they will be reasonably decent. unless you are looking for something specific from the string i see no point in changing them

Re: Beginners Racket:: Babolat Power Game

Just bought this racket and I have been playing with it for a couple of days.
One thing I noticed is the strings tend to mis-align easily. Whenever there is a break in the game I always find myself adjusting and re-alligning the strings.
Should I have this racket re-stringed? The recommended tension for this acket is 48/55 lbs. If I want to have more control, what tension should I use?

Re: Beginners Racket:: Babolat Power Game

factory stringers rarely bother to align the strings after stringing, which means they are very difficult for you to align and they lose a little bit of tension as well (because straightening the strings "beds" down the tension).

you probably should have them restrung and if you are looking for more control go to the higher end of the tension range
