Benefits of Fila the velocitas
The low weight makes it easier in the swing and more ergonomic for the player. It is easy to handle and can provide the defensive game with a lot of help. The hitting surface is a bit rough with small spikes that help spin to balls.
It doesn’t provide much use for offensive play, as this soft racket is better for defensive play. It may require extra strength and control from the player to help with hard or high balls, for example if you want to smash out opponents.
