The Best Squash Rackets Review

My goal is to make this the best squash rackets review page on the planet. How? I post more products than anyone else. Since Squash Source is not really a store (though I do link to stores) I'm able to post ALL the rackets I come across, regardless of where they're sold.

Head Spark Elite Squash Racket [Spotted]

Just spotted the Head Spark Elite:

Product Notes

This guy is quite heavy at 190 grams. It’s new on the scene in 2015, and I think it replaces the Head AFT Cyber in Head’s lineup. It’ll probably be relatively inexpensive.

I think it came out a couple years ago and is being replaced in 2015 by the Head Spark Edge.

Racket Notes

Looks like it’s the same racket as the original Cyano 135, just with updated cosmetics. Not loving the cosmetics, I have to say.

Reviews

I had a hit with this racket and thought it was “neither here nor there” – I just didn’t get good power or control.

Here’s a review from Paul at PDH Sports, who says this is a head-light power racket but it still has good feel:
