StarVie Metheora on the padel court
In-game, this racket gives off a robust and distinct feel straight from the beginning. The combination of a softer core with three layers of carbon fiber creates great control without losing to much power in the attacking play. In the defensive play, this racket offers exceptional control.
The sweet spot is not the biggest, which makes this racket only appropriate for players with good technique. Experienced players with clean hits will be rewarded with great power at volleys, bandejas, and smashes.
The built-in star-pattern on the surface works great to generate spin when needed.
This is not a racket for the beginner level padel player. To get the most out of this highly advanced racket you will need good technique.
As this racket is relatively hard, we can’t recommend it to injury-prone players.
However, if you are an experienced padel player and a true “Warrior” looking for a control-based racket that at the same time offers great power, this racket might be the perfect racket for you.
