Head Squash Rackets Roundup [Updated]

Head squash rackets are quite popular and have been used by many pros including Laura Massaro, Joelle King, Nour El Tayeb, Jenny Duncalf, and Karim “The Dark Prince” Darwish. I’ve updated this page with the 2015/2016 models, which came out recently.

Head Cyano 110

The Head Graphene XT Cyano 110 is new for 2015. It’s a teardrop-style racket. Jenny Duncalf, Nour El Tayeb and Line Hansen used the prior version, the Head Graphene Cyano 115. Looks like Dunlop have taken 5 grams out of the head for this season — will keep an eye out for whether it remains popular.

Prior versions:

As best I can tell, these rackets are all the same frame shape, so I have put them together.

    I missed the Head Ti 110 Stealth ……… (60 pounds at PBS)

    Light – not 4 beginners – snare broke in 5 weeks (4 t.a.w.). With Ashaway Ultra Nick (green) – at 10,5/11,5 kg. marvellous ‘trampoline’ and smashing drives. In other words; I don’t have to work for my 140 km/ph (like I have 2 do with each Dunlop under 120 pounds).
    When questions, then send ‘m.

      Thanks John, I forgot about those Head Microgels. I added a link to them under the Head Cyano 115 section. I’m not positive, but I think they’re the same frame.

        Oeps, u’re so right.

        One thing can be added. The tubing (is that english?) is of less quality at the ends (thin). It shorter (blink-of-an-eye) and needs capture with band.

        With regards,

        John

        Ever played squash in Germany? I didn’t in hotel oppertunities- sticky/dark floors and the lines ……. disappeared …….
