Overall Rating
I have seen the price on this racquet go up and down. I would not recommend if your paying over $10.00 ea. Performance is satisfactory. Durability is average to below average. After two years we see the stings breaking and the racquet being useless. For middle school the racquet is ok. Spending a little more will save you money in the long run. Look for specials on higher dollar racquets.
