Benefits of Fila the inceptor
The main advantage is that the frame is reinforced in carbon fiber, so it is resilient when the player accidentally bumps the racket into the surface or walls. Then it is also a racket that is well suited to beginners, as it is softer and easier to handle.
Larger sweetspot which gives more good ball hits and a low balance point which gives better balance. The soft fiberglass hitting surface combined with the soft Eva core makes it effective for low or slow balls.
Those who like to stand out a bit on the court may find it an advantage that this racket is almost entirely white and that matching padel shoes are available for purchase.
With respect to the characteristics, going in the soft direction does not provide much help in situations where speed and power may be needed with high balls. Thus, extra strength and technique may be required from the player to handle balls overhead with substantial force.
