Karakal Squash Rackets 2014

Here’s a rundown on the Karakal squash rackets 2014 range. I have never tried Karakal squash rackets myself, but I was able to cull this info from the Karakal 2014 squash rackets catalog.

First you have the “S” series of rackets, the SN 90, SX 100, and ST 110. They’re all teardrop-shaped, with a fan stringing pattern, and a small head size (455 sq. cm.). As an example, here’s the SN 90, which Karakal by the way says is the lightest squash racket in the world:

karakal-sn-90

After that you have the XL TEC series, which includes the XL-TEC 125, XL-TEC 140, and XL-TEC 150. These are also teardrop-shaped but have a regular stringing pattern and a medium head size (480 sq. cm.). Here’s an example, the XL-TEC 125:

Karakal XL-TEC 125

Next we have the Karakal TEC Series, which includes the Karakal TEC-Gel 120 (Cameron Pilley’s racket), TEC-Lite 130, and TEC-Tour 140. These have a conventional head shape:

Karakal Tec Gel 120 - 2013

After that there’s the Karakal V Series, including the Karakal V-Ti 125, V-GT 135 and V-GR 150. These are also teardrop and medium head size (480 sq. cm.). Honestly I’m not sure how these are different from some of the others. (I haven’t posted any of these yet… will get to that soon.)

That’s it for now, may add some more to this over time.

Karakal XL-TEC 140 Squash Racket

The Karakal XL-TEC 140. Don’t know much about it, other than according to the specs it’s 140 grams and head-heavy.

There are a few styles and I’m not 100% sure which is which. I think this is 2014:
