    Has she taken a look at the Winex Cool 309 at RichmondPro? Suggest that she do that and try a few swings with it to see if it even feel right. It is based on Winex's Double-Ring technology where basically the frame has two rings around the frame to help reinforce it (less distortion on hits).

    Racket itself is composed of Ultra Hi-modulus carbon graphite and I believed that the 309 is head light.

    Not knowing what kind of player your g/f, it is pretty difficult to recommend a suitable racket. Rule of thumb has been:
    - Head light for front doubles player;
    - Balanced for all-around player;
    - Head heavy for back doubles player (for smashes).
