-actual head size (95 sq in., 100 sq in. 105 sq in., etc.)
-grip size in terms of inches (common range is 4 1/4 - 4 5/8)
-balance listed by the common points system (5 points head light, 2 points head heavy, etc.)
again i'm sure most beginners won't understand jangled technical jargon (much less know what they prefer), but i wouldn't consider buying a new racket without first knowing these
Maybe we need a Tennis 101/sports jargon thread around here written by some of our more knowledgeable folks!
(Mostly because I'm really not sure what all that means either.)
I'm just hanging out, really.
