Racket Info

First saw this puppy posted at dlsports.de in Germany. Thanks to Michel Goulche for the tip.

This racket is pretty much identical to the previous Tecnifibre Carboflex 125, with even-hotter cosmetics, and also a detachable bumper guard, if you want to take a little weight out of the head. Turns out you can only remove the bumper guard when you restring it though. See the reviews for more.

Larry at Squash Unlimited comments:

Cosmetics are amazing and the custom bumper system should be an interesting feature to playtest. We will be be taking them on the court shortly.

Michel comments:

get my first hits tonight and as expected i felt immediately confortable with the racket as i was playing with the yellow one before.
I did not notice any big big changes but subtle things mainly, i think, due to the brand new string:
– the ball was popping out the racket with a very nice sound like a real “pop”
– the sweet spot was easier to find
– control was better especially on the back hand side : high, deep and glued to the side wall.
– very good feeling on the drop shot while cutting the ball.
These are my feelings BUT it could be that i was in a good day, or very pleased to play a brand new racket, or just a psychological type of things, or all that together !!!
Anyway this is a fantastic racket that i warmly recommend. lovin’ it !

CorpPilot comments:

Its the same stick as before with some pretty matte black and red cosmetics. The primary and only truly noticeable difference would be the graphics and the two piece frame/gromet strip.

Update: I got a chance to to hit with this myself. I took to it immediately. The balance felt head-light / even and the racket had tons of control.

Have you tried this racket? Please leave a review in the comments!

Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 S Squash Racket

The Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 S:

Advertised Specs

Weight: Medium (130 grams)
Balance: Medium (36.5 cm)
Head Size: Large (500 sq cm)
String Pattern: 14 x 18
Strung with: Tecnifibre 305+ 1.2

Product Notes

Yup so this is the 2015 version of the Tecnifibre Carboflex 130, which was a racket I really liked. The new version is the same weight and string pattern, but possibly a teensy bit heady-heavier, as the prior version was listed as a 35.5 cm balance point.

Related rackets: Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 S and Tecnifibre Carboflex 135 S.

Tecnifibre Carboflex 135 S Squash Racket

This is called the Tecnifibre Carboflex 135 S:

Advertised Specs

Weight: Medium (135 grams)
Balance: Even (36.5 cm)
Head Size: Large (500 sq cm)
String Pattern: 14 x 18
Strung with: Tecnifibre 305+ 1.2

Product Notes

There’s never been a Carboflex 135 before, to my knowledge. I think this is probably replacing the Tecnifibre Carboflex 140, which was obviously 5 grams heavier.

So, if this racket has never existed before, why did they feel like they needed to stick an “S” on it? Perhaps you will be Superman if you play with this, but more likely, it’s because the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 S and Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 S both have Ss, and they didn’t want this racket to feel Sad.

Tecnifibre Dynergy Max

The Tecnifibre Dynergy Max 145 Flexarm. Tecnifibre says this racket is a “maximum of power and tolerance”. By tolerance, I think they mean “less likely to break when you smash the wall”, but it just doesn’t have the same ring.

Tecnifibre Suprem 135 Squash Racket

Quick post for the Tecnifibre Suprem 135:

Specs

Weight: Medium (135 grams)
Balance: Even (35 cm)
Head size: Large (500 sq cm)

I believe this is a 2014 racket from Tecnifibre. It looks very similar to the Tecnifibre Suprem 130, but according to the published specs, this one is 5 grams heavier, and has a larger head.

I think this Suprem 135 might be the successor to the Tecnifibre Suprem Calibur 135, an older model.
