    peter gade is an professional adult male who is 3 times her age! you should really try an easier racket first. i think lee chong wei was using a nanospeed (7k or 8k? cant remember which) way before he moved to AT900P and again before the VT80

    Hi

    I have now spoken with VICTOR-SPORT and they recommend trying a VICTOR SIW 36 because 37 is not in stok anymore.

    Now I am trying to find a VICTOR SIW 36 in Denmark (not easy) or Europe.

    If my daughter plays well with a VICTOR SIW 36 I will maybe try to ask Victor if they offer sponsorship agreements as "r1z1a" suggests.

    Yonex ArcSaber 008 or 009DX are pretty good choices.

    I think the Yonex ArcSaber 009DX is more future proof since it can handle tension of up to 27lbs with the Yonex DX frame and still with warranty. So if the player becomes more advanced and demands higher tension, there is always room to safely string at higher tension.

    Also with the ArcSaber 009DX, the shaft is slightly more stiff, when the player become more advanced, your daughter will then appreciate the response and control from more stiff shafts.
    BUT the ArcSaber 009DX is not THAT STIFF which sometimes handicaps new players.

    The ArcSaber 009DX stiff is bit more stiffer than medium stiff, so it should not be too hard for your daughter to get started.

    Not to mention, the ArcSaber 009 is even balanced with a slight head heavy balance, which is perfect for younger female players.


    NO MATTER WHAT DO NOT GET A Voltric-70 or Voltric-80.

    I have a VT-70, and it might be too stiff and the head might be too heavy balanced for her skill level at this moment. Getting a VT-70 might take as longer time to get use to it.

    I don;t think they actually sell sw37 in europe.

    also, from the looks of things. they only have 3u rackets in europe.....

    here are 2 german sites with sw36

    @olezen: Victor Europe don't sell yet SW37; SW36 is a bit stiffer.

    AS008 isn't a good idea for an 11 years old player; you need quite a fast arm for this racquet, otherwise you won't ply the shaft.
    AS009DX too stiff for her.
    However AS9FL is quite a good choice, even I found the old AS9 better, but this one is very difficult to be found in Europe nowadays.

    Otherwise I would also suggest the Babolat Satelite 6.5 Power and the Yonex VT60.

    Unfortunately no...
    If I could see her playing, even a video, this could help to assist you. This is the best I can do !

    Victor might be a good idea, Yonex and Forza of course, however I thought of Babolat as the 2 best European female single players in the BWF World ranking are still 2 Babolat players: Baun and Schenk.
    Even I am not a Babolat fan, no racquet stiff enough that pleases my game , I have to say that the new Satelite Power is quite a cool all-rounder.

    Hello

    Now I have spoken with Forza in Denmark (good service) and have chosen to test a Forza Kevlar CNT-Power 10000 S and my daughter is already happy with it.

    It seems like it will fit her better ...

    Maby I will test a Victor SW36 also...

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    No surprise the 10000S is an excellent single/double racquet that is selling quite fast in UK; my clubs kids and even girls prefer the Forza Titanium line with the 666 and 555, or the Ashaway RepulsorTec series which is like a stiff Yonex NS series with some decent head-heaviness.
    Personally I usually play FZ Ti 555 VS and Ashaway RepulsorTec 950 when I feel like playing tricky and nasty shots in Baseline Men Doubles

    Anyway, I am glad she found the right tool; good luck to her and her Dad

    IMO, I would go for Arcsaber 3FL or Arcsaber 9FL

    3FL is flexible and even balance
    while 9FL is medium even balance

    not to mention they have good colour too (does she like pink? she will love this racket if she does)

    but wow, VT80.. a girl with VT it's like a girl with big machine gun instead of a pistol
    of couse she will struggle
    come on, PG is a man, and he is one of the best player with developed muscle
    11 years in her development stage with head heavy and stiff racket could distort her muscle
    I never saw Professional woman player uses a VT80
