Fila the leavis material


The frame has been made stronger with the material carbon fiber and the hitting surface has been provided with 3K carbon fiber. Under the hitting surface there is a softer core, so it will be more suitable for defensive play.

The balance

A medium balance, which makes the racket easier to use for both defensive and offensive play. However, it will not be as suitable for beginners, as it will be more difficult with low balls and to handle high balls with power, as it is a medium balance point.

Racket shape

The racket shape drop shape makes the racket slightly stiffer, compared to a round shaped racket. However, it is still large enough to accommodate a larger sweetspot.

Hard or soft?

An all-round racket with softer details, taking into account the racket shape as well as a soft core and softer hitting surface. Even though the racket is a bit harder with respect to medium balance and 100% carbon fiber in the frame, it will still be softer.

Benefits of Fila the leavis

Benefits of Fila the leavis

This racket can provide advantages to different types of games, but it is said to be more useful in defensive play. A soft core and hitting surface, along with a mid-level balance, make it easier to handle the low or slow balls. However, the small spikes on the hitting surface may provide some help along the way. It’s extra durable for bumps or mis-hits, as the frame is 100% carbon fiber.


Challenging for the player to be able to handle high or fast balls with this racket. May require extra strength or experience to succeed well.
