Head Xenon2 135

This guy is called the Head Xenon2 135, or sometimes by its full name, the Head YouTek Xenon2 135. This was a popular racket on the pro tour. It was used by Karim Darwish, former world number 1 of Egypt, Laurens Jan Anjema, a top-10 men’s player from the Netherlands, and Laura Massaro, a top 5 women’s player from England.

Here’s a review from Paul Hargrave from PDH Sports, comparing this racket to the Tecnifibre Suprem NG 130. Basically he says the heavier head guides you through the shot, so it generates good power through a smooth controlled stroke. It’s not as good for people who like to use lots of wrist.

Head Xenon 135 CT

I first spotted the Head Xenon 135 CT in the White Pigeon video. It seems like the original descendant of the Head Xenon 135 rackets. Same weight (135 grams) and also head-heavy.

  1. Darren Cook says

    I played with this racket last night as well as the 140 version. I intended just to have a few rallies with it but ended up using it for the whole session! Great feel,control and power when I needed it. I could be converted from my teardrop shape racket.

  2. Lucas Nicolau says

    If I’m not wrong Omar Mosaad was using this racket in the El Gouna International Squash Open. There’s a picture of him using in the quarter-finals against Shabana.

    Tried this at Shrewsbury last Friday. Instantly loved it. Amazing power and control. Ordered !

  4. Chano G L-Salazar says

    I just played a match with one of my friends. He just bought a couple of weeks ago from Canada a new 2015 release of this puppy namedGraphene Xenon 2 135. Amazing paintwork ( black, Blue, Green and yellow).
    Lovely racket: amazing control and power

  5. Warren says

    I have played with a good few racquets and have settled with the Head Xenon’s.
    They are a bit on the head heavy side but there is a ton of control and pretty forgiving to be honest.
    I am playing with the orange YouTek 2 and have a Graphene on order.
    I played a while with the Anion 2 but it does not have the same feel as the Xenon quadro shape head.
