Yonex EZone Ace 102 2020 (Strung)
Babolat Boost S 2020 (Strung)
This is a beginner to intermediate level racquet. It provides access to spin with the 16x19 string pattern, and it's head light, meaning you can swing faster.
This is a very good starter racquet option on a budget. Weighs 295g strung and has a head size of 102, which is great for a beginner.
Babolat Pure Strike 98 (16x19) (2020) (Unstrung)
This racquet is in the Pure line of Babolat but offers lots more control and consistency compared to the Pure Drive and Pure Aero. With a weight of 305g unstrung, it's a very stable racquet with great feel and will allow you to swing through and still have lots of control. It is similar to the Wilson Blade and Wilson Pro staff. All in all, it's a really good racquet.
Babolat Boost Drive (2021) (Strung)
This is a light racquet with the benefit of a bigger head, which allows you a little more wiggle room as you're picking up the game. The bigger head also provides a bit more pop off the strings, which is a nice addition while the lower weight gives you that ability to really swing through.
Yonex VCore Ace 98 (2021) (Strung)
This racquet comes pre-strung, so it's ready to get out on the court and it has an isometric (not strictly oval) head shape to give you a little bit of a bigger sweet spot. This will help you generate some power on your ground strokes while being whippy enough to get your spin going.
Babolat Evo Drive (104) (Strung)
This is a fantastic racquet for moving from the beginner stages of play into more intermediate play. The 104 head size is much more controlled, and the stiffness of the racquet keeps the ball from launching off of impact. This racquet does have a softer tension, which still gives you a lot of power without losing all your control. It comes prestrung as well.
Head Gravity MP 2021 (100) (Unstrung)
This racquet is ideal for those who want great control, feel, and spin in a slightly lighter racquet. At 100 sq. in. you can still generate decent power without compromising the rest of the great attributes needed in a player's racquet.
