We got this racquet for a 7 year old girl that is in the middle of transition to competiton level . She loves it. Its light and gives more hitting power than "regular" beginner racquets. I recommend it for sure.
The Babolat Pure Drive 25 Junior racket is a nice step up from the inexpensive metal junior rackets. I purchased this for my 8-1/2 year old daughter, and she loves it. The frame has a high-quality appearance and is strung with Babolat synthetic gut. The full-length cover is also very nice. This racket makes me want to consider the full-size Pure Drive for myself. Overall, this is a good racket at a reasonable price.
