The strings are strung within the head of the racquet, which is then attached to the frame of neck, which terminates at the handle. Choose from 5 materials:
- Steel: The most durable but slightly heavier. Great for beginners and younger students who may periodically mishandle the racquet.
- Aluminum: Lighter than steel so easier to control but a little softer and can get damaged if a player hits a wall or the floor. Great for all play.
- Graphite: Very light and extremely stiff. Provides fantastic control. For advanced play (yet still very affordable).
- Carbon Fiber: Lightest and stiffest. No better material for the player who wants top performance and is willing to pay for it.
- High Performance Plastic: One-piece molded racquets are lightweight and durable. Not indestructible but with no strings to break and the ability to return to shape, it's perfect for schools and unsupervised players.
