Eye Squash Rackets Catalog

Eye squash rackets are making a splash on the pro tour, with high-profile players including Amr Shabana and Borja Golan using the rackets.

I recently reviewed the Eye X.Lite 120 Control (which both Shabana and Golan use) and Eye X.Lite 120 Power, but how do these fit into the overall Eye Rackets catalog?

Read below to see all the 2014 / 2015 Eye squash rackets. By the way, all the rackets can be purchased from eyerackets.co.uk in the UK, or squashgear.com in the US.

Eye X.Lite Rackets

The Eye X.Lite rackets have a traditional closed-throat design with a slightly above-average head size (490 sq. cm.).

Eye X.Lite 120 Control

The one that Shabana and Golan use is the Eye X.Lite 120 Control:

Eye X.Lite 120 Power

The Eye X.Lite 120 Power is the same as the 120 control, but has a more open stringing pattern (12 x 17 instead of 14 x 18):

Eye X.Lite 110 Control

The Eye X.Lite 110 Control is based off the 120 Control but has 10 grams of weight taken out of the head, making it more head-light:
eye-x-lite-110-control


Eye X.Lite 110 Power

Eye X.Lite 110 Power has the lighter weight AND the more open stringing pattern:
eye-x-lite-110-power


Eye X.Lite Pro Rackets

The Eye X.Lite “Pro” rackets also have a conventional head shape, but they have a smaller head size (460 sq. cm.) than the regular X.Lite rackets.

Once again, the Control versions have more strings than the Power versions, and the 110s have 10 grams taken out of the head.

Eye V.Lite Rackets

The V.Lite rackets have a teardrop head shape. Within this group, there are 4 rackets with a vertical stringing pattern:

And then 5, count ’em 5, rackets with a fan-shaped stringing pattern.

Eye V.Lite 115 Control

Eye V.Lite 145 Power

And the Eye V.Lite 145 Power is the bonus guy, with 30 grams extra stashed in the head. Good for a beginner, because the extra weight in the head will help you shape your swing, and also give you a bit of extra sturdiness if you come into hard contact with the wall:

    Hey pierre, love reading the reviews and info of products! I’m based in Canada, where there are currently no eye rackets. Would you have any idea if or where I would be able to get my hands on a few, maybe as a trial bases to demo and share knowledge of the product?
    Cheers

          Hey nate!

          back in to report

          i absolutely loved this racquet

          currently i go back and forth between the carboflex 125 s and the prince pro beast 750
          i think i prefer the prince but love the snappy power of the carboflex

          this eye racket is sweet and extremely light. i immediately picked up on the control. it made for great accurate volleys into corners and nice drops…basically decent enough power if/when i really focused on my follow through…

          overall, it’s called the control for good reason and i see why. accurate rails, drops and made for great volleying.

          i am selling my Wilson racquets and will use that to put towards buying one of these.

          definitely give it a go and demo it!!!

          all the best,

          rod

          Hey Rod!
          Thanks for the info! Sounds like it is worth a demo! I’ll look into it over the next few days. Thanks for the information!
          Cheers, Nate
