Harrow Vapor Squash Racket

This is the Harrow Vapor. I’ve seen Harrow squash rackets everywhere. I’ve even played with one before. But for some reason I’ve never posted about one on this site. But that’s all going to change riiiiiiight…….now.

Why is this called the Vapor? It’s because when you slice this racket through the air, it leaves behind a trail of water vapor. Not from the racket itself, but from the eyes of your opponent, as he weeps, softly.

Also, Low Wee Wern of Malaysia used to use this racket, strung with Tecnifibre 305 strings. Thanks to ‘M’ for the tip!

The product description on this racket makes me cringe a little bit:

It’s time to get irie with the newest design of Harrow’s best selling racquet around the world. With the same performance and playability that you have come to expect from the Vapor, this jammin’ makeover is sure to improve your game and style, mon.

Maybe this is the racket Bob Marley would have played squash with. Speaking of Bob Marley, did you ever watch the documentary called Marley? It was great. There was a pretty amusing / tragic moment when Ziggy Marley describes how competitive his dad was. Bob used to challenge his kids to running races, but he wouldn’t let his kids win. Instead Bob would sprint ahead as FAST as he possibly could. You should watch the documentary. Mon.
