    Default Re: Which Yonex racket and string to choose for a BEGINNER?

    Jeez, guys, give Tammy a break! She's a BEGINNER, remember? It won't matter one bit if she has an oval or iso shaped racquet. Basically any graphite racquet will do. And it won't matter which string she uses or at what tension she strings it at.

    Tammy, if you like the 250 or 500 (because they look cool or feel good or whatever reason) then get any one of them. I'd suggest the cheaper one: as a beginner you're going to hit the floor, hit the frame, hit the net and even hit yourself, so my guess is you'll need a new racquet anyway within a year or so... (And don't bother too much about restringing -- the factory strings will do just fine!)

    If you want to spend some money, then get a pair of good shoes as some others suggested. That really means much more for your playing than which racquet you have.

    Good luck... and have fun!

    Mag, you restore my faith in sensible arguments.

    IMO, small differences in equipment (i.e. anything to do with a racquet) do not equate to big improvments for a beginner.

    Default You guys are the best! Thanks so much!

    I did not expect to receive so many responses. I like this forum! I knew there would be different suggestions. I don't know about my playing style and preferences yet til I take the lessons. That's why I wanted to hear from many people so I know what I should pay attention to when I play.

    My brother will give me his old Carbonex 21. I think I can use it for the time being. I still have my eyes on the Isometric 250 [I don't know why. It's like love at first sight ] I think I wait til the Boxing Day, and see if the price is reduced further. By that time, I should know if I still like it. Now I can go shopping for some shoes Bye guys. Thank you again! Talk to you later.

    Default To Howard: I'm in Toronto.

    I am from Montreal, and going to University of Toronto. I may move again after I finish school. Who knows? I may land in Calgary

    Tammy,

    I live in Toronto and would like to know which store is selling the iso 500 for $120.

    Thanks for the information.

    Default To Xavier: ISO 500

    The store that sells ISO 500 for $120 is Yo Sports at First Markham Place. I've never been there, just talked with them on the phone (905-474-5711). The price $120 includes Yonex string of your choice and stringing (but not taxes).

    I was tempted to get it but I'll probably get a cheaper one (ISO 96VF is on sale for $59), and my brother gave me his old Carbonex 21. I think I'd need 2 in case I hit anything/anyone but the shuttle

    Have fun shopping!
