RACHET SHAPE BASICALLY AFFECTS IN TWO WAYS RACKETS’ FEATURES:
- WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION: BALANCE
- SWEET SPOT
As you can notice in the picture above, round rackets have their weight balance close to the handle. This feature provides comfort and helps to move the racket with less effort. We feel the racket is easy to move so that we can do fast movements, such as volleys, with high-speed.
Another feature of this sort of rackets is that their sweet spot is centered and bigger than other shapes. This feature provides a better control of the ball and helps us to be more precise in our shots.
Quite the opposite, diamond rackets have their weight balance close to racket’s head. In this case this feature plus the gravity force allow us to supply an extra energy to our smashes.
On the other hand, their sweet spot is smaller and located on the top of the racket which it means we will need some technique so that we can effectively manage the racket.
Tear rackets are a mix of above rackets features. These rackets are designed for those players who look for an extra power in their smashes without losing much control.
StarVie has always looked for players’ comfort, producing rackets extremely easy to use. Nonetheless StarVie has designed rackets for all sorts of players along its collections. Therefore it totally makes sense that they have focused all their efforts mainly in 2 shapes: round and tear. In this sense, they have been able to design rackets for all playing styles without losing their main goal which is the comfort of their rackets.
StarVie 2018 collection also follows this premise. Thus we find 3 tear models: Brava Soft, Aquila Carbon and Aquila Carbon Soft that although their shape they are very easy to use and we feel we can have a very good control in our shots.
The rest of StarVie 2018 collection models are round shape rackets that together with other features such as face materials and rubber stiffness provide us different characteristics to fulfil all players’ demands. StarVie round shape rackets for this 2018 are: Metheora, Basalto, R 9.2 Carbon Aluminium Soft, Polaris Carbon, Polaris Carbon Soft, Titania Carbon and Titania Carbon Soft.
Please note that all these rackets’ features help to highlight our characteristics as players therefore we should choose our racket according to our style and not the other way around.
