Prince Airstick 130 Squash Racquet Review

A nice scoop from Laurent Cossa: Ramy Ashour has switched (back) to the Prince Airstick 130.

This racket’s a bit old but you can still get it. Now that Ramy’s using it, this racquet is more widely available.

So apparently Dunlop has now dropped Ramy Ashour and Amr Shabana from their sponsorship list? Hmm. Amr Shabana is not amused:

Anyway here’s Ramy using the Airstick:

    The Dunlop website only lists four players as their tour team now – Alison Waters, Greg Gaultier, Nick Matthew and Ong Beng Lee. It appears there might have been a sponsorship rationalisation at Dunlop. Perhaps sponsoring Egyptian players was not translating into sales…

      You’re right Bopper they have narrowed down their “team” on the Website. I hadn’t noticed that. Although I see they still have a picture of Shabana here. Heh.

      Hey there!

      I’ve noticed that Golán is also missing… No Spaniards either

      True. I wonder how Dunlop came to this decision. Or as someone pointed out on Twitter, maybe it was the players that all left Dunlop!

      Last year Ashour was not happy with Dunlop, they only gave him two rackets for the Australian open and at first they didn’t tweeted that he won the world open. He retweeted this tweet https://mobile.twitter.com/Stringways/status/280732975430262785
      I think that he wasn’t happy with dunlop at all :o

    I think Ramy will be sponsored by Prince soon, according to this tweet: https://mobile.twitter.com/RamyAshour/status/295198656947187712

    This is my current racket as well as other, I like it but it does take a long time to get use to it, it was my first racket when i started just over 2 years ago, and that broke a while ago but got it a couple of months ago and now love it, got mine strung with Tecnifibre 305+ 1.3 String and now is a great racket with power and control. Get it now when it’s cheap!
