This is a teardrop-shaped racket that comes with the Head Adaptive Fan pattern, which means you can string it in the traditional way (vertically) or in a fan stringing pattern (as in the picture above).
In their product listing, Control the T says:
New to the line is the Adaptive Fan Pattern stringing option. The racquet comes strung with a 12/17 stringing pattern but for those looking for a bit more control you can restring with a 16/17 stringing pattern.
In the photo above it’s a 16×17 stringing pattern.

Paul from PDH Sports also did his own review:
Looks like Laura Massaro will be using this racket. She used the prior model as well.
