Very lightweight racket: 255 g (unstrung)
Bought for my 12-year-old beginner as her first adult racquet. She had tried a cheap and light aluminum racquet and an ultra-light titanium racquet, but she said they were too heavy and hurt her arm. This racquet, with its low swing weight, seems to have done the trick. She hits the ball much better and didn’t complain at all. For whatever reason the US web site does not give full information about this frame, though it is listed on the placard that comes on the racquet. It is only 26.5” long compared to the standard 27”. The static weight is 265g (unstrung)—web site says 9.5 oz in the features section and 9 oz in the product information section. Swing weight is 235g. Head is 102.3 square inches. Paint job/aesthetic is good. The strings aren’t great, but those can be swapped out easily.
Thanks for letting us know about the information on the webpage. It's been updated!
The very helpful Sales Staff assured me that this racquet was so inexpensive as the Company doesn't have to cop up for the Pro Tennis Players. I took it to Perth for my 12 year old Nephew's Birthday - and he absolutely loved, loved, loved it. Plus the set of 4 Balls. GREAT VALUE. The other 2 Niece and Nephew want one exactly the same.

Very easy to maneuver. Excellent racket
Thank you for your review of our ARTENGO ADULT TENNIS RACKET TR500 LITE - GREEN:)
I am delighted to know your're happy with this product & hope it is serving you well during your sports sessions! Indeed, this tennis racket is very versatile, and provides ease of handling and good vibration dampening.
At 255 g, this racket delivers powerful strokes.For your information:- Under 260 g: lightweight rackets, for comfort and easy handling.- 260 to 295g: mid-weight rackets for versatility.- 300 to 315g: rackets for players who already have good technique and need more powerful strokes and precision.- 315g: rackets for high-level athletes with a powerful game
The SOFT FEEL technology (made with 11% balsa), created in collaboration with our Research & Development Centre, greatly absorbs the racket's vibrations upon impact with the ball. It confers a much more comfortable feel and dampens vibrations.
The 32.5 cm head-light balance makes the TR500 Lite a versatile and easy-to-handle racket. You'll find it easier to manoeuvre the racket and place the ball where you want it to go. As a guide: < 32 cm: Head-light balance, easy to handle, 32 cm - 33 cm: Even balance and versatile, > 33 cm: Head heavy, powerful.
A racket's manoeuvrability depends on the player's feeling of being able to swing the racket through the air. It is characterised by an indicator called the swing weight (SW). The higher the SW, the harder the racket will be to manoeuvre. Overall, the SW for adult rackets (unstrung) varies from 200 to 300/kg/cm². This racket has an SW of 235, making it especially easy to handle. As a guide: SW<250: easy to handle, 250-270: a powerful racket.
With the 660 cm² head size, the TR500 offers a good balance between control and forgiveness.As a guide: < 630 cm²: small head size, a greater feeling of control, 630 cm² - 660 cm²: medium head size, versatile (balance between control and forgiveness), > 660 cm²: large head size, more forgiving.
