Yes its heavy (to most people) and yes the sweet spot is small if you are not used to players frames, but you are more rewarded if you hit the sweet spot.

Yes, at 14 it will be too heavy for you. I recommend you buy a lighter racket with a larger head size, and then add more weight through the use of lead tape as you continue to grow.

When I say heavy I'm talking about swing weight, not static weight. It's SW is 333, that is quite high for any junior. I use the dunlop aerogel 100. Its SW is only 308 and a static weight of 11.6 oz and 8pts headlight. I have customized it to about 12.3 oz, 11 pts hl, and a SW of 325. I chose the dunlop In part because it was light. This gave me the ability to customize it to the exact specifications that I wanted, something that I couldn't have done with a heavier racket like the 6.1 tour. Trust me, at 14 you won't be able to perform with it. Get a easier racket now and just as weight as you find out what you want in a racket.

Specifically what features? All wilsons have the same technology and you can have a leather grip put on any racket you want.

Leather grip, BLX tech, grip shape (which are the same on al Wilsons)
box beam small head for control (because my game will be all court and hitting winners on the line finishing points quick) thin beam.

Broski, if you haven't played with a variety of rackets then you really dont know what you like. And you can't predict what kind of game you will play before you have played it lol. Hitting winners isn't as easy as it sounds.& a 90 inch size head is waaaay to small for a beginner. I've been playing 8 yrs and I didn't use a 90 in head till 2 years ago. there is nothing wrong with a midplus or oversized racket if you are just begining
