    Get her a ACE 250, it will be perfect for her. Its made by Garret. I got my wife and my 7 year old son a pair and they have no problems using them.

    Well, it's for a woman and a beginner, so that puts whites out of the picture. The weight of those things after a few passes is enough to ruin a beginner.

    The Ace 250 is an ideal and affordable machine. Easy to use, she'll love it.
