How Does the Starvie Tritón Pro 2024 perform?

Starvie in 2024

Starvie is famous for a few things: manufacturing their rackets in Spain, the durability of their rackets, and ending their sponsorship program in 2024. We can't know why they decided to do this, but at the end of 2023 beginning of 2024, Javi Garrido (the former signee of this racket) Bea González, Coki Nieto, and other players announced that they would no longer be playing with Starvie rackets. I have to be honest - this slightly disappointed me as it sort of felt like the heavy-sponsoring, China-manufacturing brands would stomp out the Spanish-manufacturing brands. Or maybe it's just a shift toward boutique, premium, exclusive branding? How will this turn out? Only time will tell.

Starvie tip

Because Starvie weight ranges are so wide, we strongly recommend specifying the weight when you purchase your racket. A 385g Starvie will play totally different from a 350g version of the same model.

The Starvie Tritón

The Tritón is Starvie's canon - it's their highest balance racket in their premium line with a double layer of 3K carbon fiber. That means it is their most powerful, most technical racket. It has a small, high sweet spot. It has a long handle. Like most of its models, Starvie offers this racket in three versions, which correspond to the different hardnesses, or densities of the foam cores:
1. Tritón Pro: the hardest with the "Pro 50" EVA core (this model)
2. Tritón: the intermediate model with the "Soft 30" EVA core
3. Tritón Speed: the softest model with the "Ultra Speed Soft" EVA core
All else being equal, we only recommend the Tritón Pro to advanced players who know they appreciate a hard touch. 

The Tritón Pro on the court

Designed for advanced players who crave an offensive edge, this racket is a force to be reckoned with, delivering exceptional power and precision in a package that demands both skill and physical stamina.

Pros

Power and Control: A Potent Combination

From the moment you step on the court, the Tritón Pro announces its presence with an uncompromising blend of power and control. With a double layer of uncolored carbon fiber and a slightly harder composition than last year's model, this racket is built to unleash a barrage of heavy, spin-laden shots to overwhelm your opponents.

Exceptional Ball Feel and Sensations

As a result of its hard touch, the Tritón Pro excels in delivering an exceptional feel and connection with the ball. Our reviewers consistently praised the racket's ability to provide a direct and engaging sensation, allowing for precise shot-making and a level of control that belies its power-oriented design.

Spin Generation and Versatility

The Tritón Pro's spin generation capabilities are among the best on the market, enabling players to impart devastating rotations on their shots while maintaining a high degree of versatility. Whether executing blistering bajadas, precise volleys, or well-disguised drop shots, this racket delivers a level of spin that can leave opponents scrambling.

Cons

Demanding Playability and Smaller Sweet Spot

While the Tritón Pro's power and control are undeniable, they come at a cost: playability. This racket demands a high level of skill and physical conditioning from its users, as its high balance point and relatively small sweet spot can make it challenging to wield, particularly in defensive situations or during extended rallies.

Fatigue factor

With test models weighing in around 365-373 grams and balance points ranging from 27-28 cm, the Tritón Pro is a hefty racket. It takes a toll on even the most physically-capable players' endurance. Our reviewers noted that the weight and demanding nature of this racket can lead to fatigue, particularly during intense sessions or back-to-back matches.

Limited forgiveness

As a technical power racket designed for advanced players, the Tritón Pro offers little in the way of forgiveness. When shots miss the sweet spot, the ball can feel quite dead. Therefore, precise technique and timing is required to maintain control and power. This lack of forgiveness can be a double-edged sword, rewarding precision while punishing even minor lapses in form.

In conclusion: a racket for the fearless attacker

The Starvie Tritón Pro is a racket that demands respect and commitment from its wielders. It's a powerhouse designed for advanced players who thrive on an aggressive, attack-oriented playstyle and are willing to invest the time and effort required to master its nuances.
While the Tritón Pro's uncompromising nature may not appeal to those seeking a more forgiving or versatile racket, for the fearless attacker seeking an edge in power, spin, and ball feel, it stands as a compelling option that can elevate their game to new heights.
It suits only those strong players who are willing to sacrifice their maneuverability and speed for that extra punch of power. Do not use this racket if you have issues with your arm's tendons.

Fabio Ferro

This is a very serious racket - one of the most aggressive rackets on the market. Amazing sensation of the ball. Test model weights 373g and balances at 27.6cm...it's a beast. It takes skill and strength to keep up with this racket. And it's a best buy.

Padel Review

"What an incredible racket!" This is the most powerful racket on the market. Last year, this was my second favorite racket, and this year it will be at least on the podium. Power, control, touch...all incredible. This racket suits advanced left-side players. Hard touch. Long, narrow handle. Test model weighs 372g and balances at 28cm.

Dani 13

One of the most powerful rackets on the market today. Technical power racket for advanced players who don't mind how physically-demanding it is. Double layer of uncolored carbon, slightly harder than year's model. The balance has increased slightly compared to last year - ~27cm. With this model, we need to swing through our shots well in order to compensate for its low ball output. Test model weighs 365g.
