Harrow Vapor Squash Racket [New 2015 Models Released]

This is the Harrow Vapor. 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.

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? At one point, his son Ziggy Marley tells this story of how Bob used to challenge his kids to running races, but instead of letting his kids win, Bob would run as FAST as he possibly could. You should watch the documentary. Mon.
