Racket Review: MANTIS Performa 260


Our testers tried out the MANTIS Performa 260

The MANTIS Performa 260 was included in tennishead's 2017 racket reviews for players in the improver category and it made a positive impression.

The MANTIS Performa 260 is the first oversize racket to be introduced into the MANTIS racket portfolio. The 115 square inch head size provides a large sweet spot enabling players to generate lots of power whilst the open 16x19 string pattern helps players easily generate spin.

The large sweet spot also increases comfort by reducing shock on off-centre hits. Having not heard much about the brand before, Ali felt she got ample power and control from the racket. “I enjoyed using it but I’m unsure if I’d buy it, but I felt it benefited my groundstrokes and serve.”

At £130 it is one of the less expensive rackets in the improver range and our testers thought you’d certainly get a lot for your money. 

Tennishead's 2017 improver racket reviews appear in the June edition of the tennishead digital magazine.  Download the tennishead magazine app for free to read the reviews in full.
