Harrow squash rackets are popular with both pros and amateurs. They offer a few classic frame shapes, with lots of different options in terms of weights, balance points, and cosmetics. Most of their rackets are available in multiple styles. All Harrow rackets are advertised at the “strung” weight, i.e. quoted including the weight of the strings, which adds about 10 grams. Harrow squash rackets tend to be up there in price.
Dave from Harrow was kind enough to send me a bunch of their squash rackets to review, and my video roundup of the singles rackets is below (a review of their doubles rackets is in the works). I’ve also done individual videos of each of these rackets, and you can find those by clicking through to view each product.
The Harrow Spark weighs in at 135 grams strung, so about 125 grams unstrung. It comes in a few styles. This one is the Jonathon Power signature version, which came out in 2013/2014:
