    Just name the friendliest racket ever here.
    My choice:
    1. Victor Brave Sword 12
    2. Forza Titanium 11 000 M

    Anything with an even balance and a flexible to semi-flexible shaft is going to be easy to use and forgiving.

    I couldn't understand how does a stiff racket can be forgiving rackets. Go for any less stiff shaft rackets. It's more forgiving

    Nanoray Glanz, and it's not even close.
    Your racket will likely break fast though, so don't pass 22 lb no matter what.

    Forza Titanium 11000 M... Perhaps. Certainly NOT the most stringing friendly racket :D I think quite the opposite. It's a hell to string this one!

    I like Forza for their logical Scandinavian way of thinking and making things.
    They make every racket with 4 different shafts. Very Stiff, Stiff, Medium and Flexible. I wish all producers would do the same.

    Everyone used to do it this way, especially Yonex. Their Isometric 500 came in 4 flavours of shaft stiffness. They changed because customer wants changed.

    I can't use BS 12. I don't know why, for me the timing is not right. I also have same problem with Arc10.

    Babolat is even more "scandinavian". Their line ups are head heaven / head light x stiff / flex, thus giving 4 racquets for each technology.

    Sounds like you prefer stiffer rackets.

    I had timing problems with BS12 in the beginning. And even more problems with JS10, but it is a matter of time. After a couple of days, the problem disappears by itself.
