Great racquet to use for inbetween a full size racquet and a lollipop paddle. Very durable. Excellent quality for the money spent.

My kindergarten son didn't quite have the leverage strength for the standard racquets. The short shaft gives him the quick swing for solid and quite accurate returns! I have to add that the grips on these racquets are awesome. Quality features for the price on this item!
