If Single : i would recommend AT900T, Arc 7, Arc 9. For double i would recommend NS9900

I think Arcsaber 7 wouldn't be a bad decision

which of your friends racket have you tried that you like the feel of?
unless of course you know what sort of flex and balance you like.

You guys should read the first post (I think): it is for an 11 year old girl (maybe his daughter, sister, niece or pupil?)
Maybe a 4U AT900T or ARC9FL (again ) and I'm sure Forza should have something as well ... (and I don't think you have a need for specific disciplines rackets here)

Yes it is a racket for my daughter.
She is currently playing with a Yonex Voltric 80 and has previously played with a Head Lite 10
She is a top 10-20 player in her age and chasing anything that can help to improve her game.
And then it was we thought that perhaps there were some who had experience with the racquet for youth players.
It could for instance be Victor, Forza, etc. ..
Thank you in advance.

Where is she lacking with her VT80 ?
Otherwise during the last junior european championships you have certainly noticed that the best players U17, U15, British and Dane, were playing Forza racquets.
I know a Belgian U15 girl who plays Forza 555 (can't recall if it is S or VS) with success and beats easily Senior similar ranked Ladies.
Now being 11 years old, I am not sure she could be able to handle such racquet.
They are certainly excellent Victor racquets that could suit her; I am sure the Victor experts will come back to you.
For me it would be definitely SW37 or if more radical needed for her the SW35.

Wow, i'm surpised with her current racket. especially since whe used a Head Lite 10 previously.
How has her game changed from the shift? VT80 is a beast even if its 4u.
Since she's still developing her techniques I would suggest to keep to a light and medium flex rackets. I would agree with the above suggested SW37.
I had a great time using the Victor SW310 and my wife loves it even though its 3u slightly stiff and slightly heavy head. Ideal for doubles or singles since it feels light when you play with it.

if your going for victor they have good sponsorships deals for people who compete really well, so this could be useful, but at same time you would have to wear victor stuff when you play.
Im personally looking for new racket and thinking of getting a Victor so i cant comment on the model since i have not tested any so far.(im in switzerland so its tough to find any places that let me test out rackets)

try PMing Accordaz, he is from switzerland as well.

She struggles with her VT80 .....
I do not think she gets the same length of clear and have less feeling ....
But we are not totally agree
Peter Gade can of course play with a VT80, she will also

Being a Danish player that could easily be sponsored by Forza I would suggest the FZ Kevlar CNT-Power 3000 Light, with quite a wide sweetspot which is always good news for young players.
A very precise and repulsive racquet in its range and an excellent all-rounder.
Within Yonex, I would strongly suggest her to try the VT7.
If she can already play as good as Kamilla, it will be quite an achievement
