Racket of the line 9.2 of the Starvie brand for the year 2017. It’s made up of carbon and Kevlar fibers, a system that Starvie calls “Aramid Tech.” Filled by EVA soft. Round format. Surface with textured finish as it appears also in various other rackets of this brand.
The first impression you have when you pick up the racket for the first time is that the weight is very well distributed and feels solid. The weight is quite centered.
The feeling is pretty nice, solid and a soft touch. It features a pretty wide sweet spot, much by force of its round shape. It is a racket that has very good control and that still has a more than enough power. The output is moderate and helps in the defensive phase.
The weight tested was that of 360gr, which seems to me a good weight for both man and woman, for the good distribution of weight it presents. The textured surface helps a lot who likes to abuse the slice, especially in the service.
The safety cord is simple without any possibility of adjustment, which in my opinion could be improved. In terms of durability, it seems to be an extremely solid and well-built racket which leads to wanting that it can have a long life span.
- Excellent finishes and visual
- Excellent control with reasonable power
- Good weight distribution
- High price
- Simple safety cord with no possibility of adjustment
- Absence of rubber to hold Overgrip
In conclusion, it’s a very well made racket. Efficient and suitable for both sexes, although the brand puts at the disposal weights reduced to anyone who has a little less arm strength. The touch is soft and the punch is very nice. The finishes are very good that and the visual also leaves no one indifferent. It is a high quality racket, an excellent option for female players, but also for males, preferably right-wing. Price somewhat high.
