The Mantis 285 offers a great blend of comfort and control. The manageable swingweight (308 RDC) makes it very easy to accelerate through the hitting zone. This makes it the perfect tool for intermediates who want to increase power and spin without sacrificing control. The near even balance provides enough mass in the head to make the racquet feel solid at impact. Doubles specialists will appreciate the action they get on serves along with the fast feel on reaction volleys. The Mantis 285 is a must try for developing players who want a more mobile option without sacrificing stability.
