Great kids racquet at a great price compared to comparable Babolat, Wilson, & Head. My son is a 10 yr old, beginner-intermediate junior level player and he loves this racquet. He had been playing with a light weight 27" and hitting fairly well with it. When we purchased the Rebel 26" I noticed a significant improvement in all of his strokes (ground, volley, approach, overhead, and serve). I was actually a bit surprised how much difference the 26" Rebel made in his game. The light strung weight make this very manuverable for 10 - 12 year olds. Definitely recommend this racquet.
