Summary

The Mantis 300 provides incredible comfort and spin from all areas of the court. Our playtesters enjoyed the control and pace production from the baseline, and it really allowed them to be comfortable from the moment they stepped on the court. Generating their own power was difficult for some, as the racquet was a little underpowered due to its light weight and low swingweight. This carried over to other areas of the court, particularly serve returns. Some of the team couldn't quite get what they wanted on the ball from this light racquet. On serves, most of our playtesters found it easy to hit spin and had great control,too. Volleying with the Mantis 300 was a clear favorite for all our testers, as they found enough stability to go along with the maneuverability. All in all, the Mantis 300 provided great control, and was spin-friendly and maneuverable from all areas of the court.
