total amateur want to buy my own racket.

well theres a clay court near my house and we started to play alot there. they don't rent rackets so we bring our own. but they are very old and bad. i lend a good one from a friend and i played so much better but it was too heavy for me. what racket would you recommend for me?

i think im pretty decent for someone that just started. i can hit FH and BH and serves well now.

im 5'8" or 172cm if that is important. i love it to put power in my strokes.

and im a student so it should be affordable. thank you.

Re: total amateur want to buy my own racket.

if you're looking for something affordable you could look at the babolat xs range, and specifically the xs 102 and 105. they both have decent headsizes, making it easy if you've not played too much before. and they are a good weight and balance, making them nice to swing and manouvrable all over the court

Re: total amateur want to buy my own racket.

ok cool. i get the xs105 for around 150$ and the reflex for around 105$.
do you think the difference is worth it?
