The Mantis White 27 junior tennis racket is a good choice for developing young players who want a junior racket to help them progress towards an adult racket. The racket is part of the series of Mantis rackets that are suitable for the ITF Play and Stay scheme, and it is intended for juniors aged approximately 13. At 27’’ (686mm) long, the racket is the same length as most standard adult ones. The 98in2 (630cm2) head is a good size and makes for a larger sweet spot that is forgiving and offers solid levels of power. The aluminium racquet has a strong but light frame, is supplied strung in a 16x19 pattern, and comes with a head cover that has a shoulder strap.
