    I would say a hi-flex or medium flex shaft and towards slight head heavy setup.

    If you want something from the current series, i would look at the astrox 77 or 66 in 4u version.

    I started wrongly by choosing the zf2. It was a mess.

    Then i opted for voltric glanz. It was a very nice beginner racket for me.

    Then i progressed to ax77 and then the ax88s.

    Now i am looking at the nanoflare 700.

    If you dont know what to choose yet, start with a flexible and balance racket, 3U or 4U. Then after you decide your playing style, you can go for a better racket.
    Where are you in VN? Shopvnb offers a wide range of Lining rackets.

    Anything around the centre of the racket matrix. How much do you want to spend?
    Calibar 200 or 300, Aeronaut 4000, Turbocharging 20.

    The windstorm series of li ning to me are meant be played only in front doubles as they are extremely light. So i second with Ouchie and go with Aeronaunt and Turbo Charging rackets.
    A friend of mine does use the Aeronaunt 4000C and is also a beginner and it suits him well both in doubles and singles.

    I haven't experienced Lining's but I would go for these rackets because I am front court player and I know light rackets suit me well.
    For you, I agree with two suggestions above, you should choose a so-so all-around racket and discover what will suit you most (playing style, racket weight, balance, stiffness, string, grip) and then can upgrade to another.

    3U, fully flex/medium flex, slight heavy head
    Or
    4U, fully flex/medium flex, heavy head.

    22-24lbs

    Yonex Astrox 7/6
    Yonex Voltric 1DG/5DG
    Victor Thruster K HMR
    Lining 3D Calibar 200/300

    I think its better to use head heavy series for early to train & strengthen arm & wrist. After having good technique & good arm strength you can move to mid flex or try higher string tension. Then finally when you have found your style you can goes to head light or balance racket.

    If you can find a li-ning airstream 50td that would be perfect.
    Flexible and slightly head heavy 3u. It is a very good and very friendly racket

    look for a racket with following specs:
    weight: 80-89 gm (decide for urself if u want a 3u/4u) (for doubles i feel 4u will be better)
    stifness: hi flex - mid flex (higher flex will be forgiving for noobs)
    balance point: go for a balanced racket so that u can develop ur skill (later u can shift towards what u like head heavy/light)

    also dont buy a expensive racket in the beginning since there will a lot of chances for crashing it, start with a good budget racket and gradually move to higher ones as u gain more experience

    li ning produces some good and durable rackets in the budget range ( SS, US series)

    if u want a yonex racket look at the marked area from below, get the racket that suits u with the best deal;)

    let me know what u think:cool::D
