MANTIS are proud to see the Pro 310 II has been voted “Best For Feel” by tennishead magazine in their 2016 racket reviews.

“The World’s Best Tennis Magazine” handed the racket over to their testers, and put it up against a whole number of brands in the tennis world, to find out which racket ultimately had the best for feel.

The second generation MANTIS Pro 310 II is the heaviest model within the Pro Series Range. It offers a fast swing speed for the advanced or powerful player who seeks a thinner profile control orientated racket.

The racket provides lots of feel at ball impact, but is soft enough to not strain your arm.

tennishead concluded that the MANTIS Pro 310 II felt the best from the range of rackets they tested, stating the racket had, “Enough power, great control and fantastic feel too. What’s not to love?”

The established magazines testers continued: “It feels better than some more well-known brands. I didn’t know much about MANTIS, but it’s well worth testing their rackets.”
