Just a short post to mention the Prince EXO3 145 racket, which you can learn about in this video from PDH Sports. In the video, Paul says this is a “semi-exclusive” for PDH Sports and sure enough, I can’t find it anywhere else at the moment. It’s 145 grams and slightly head-heavy.
One of my regular playing partners, Ken Jaffe, was playing with this racket the other day. I didn’t get a chance to hit with it yet but I thought I’d post it.
According to the specs the balance point is 335mm, which would be rather head-light. And at 135 grams this racket is fairly light.
This has an open string pattern, like the Head Anion 135. My guess is the Anion 135 is just a later version of this same racket. (The Head Xenon 135 is also 135 grams but uses the traditional string pattern).
Here’s another racket in the Head Metallix range, the Head Metallix 130.
I’ve seen a few players on my home courts use this. I think it’s a bit of an older model but a quality racket, so probably a good deal for someone looking for a decent racket but not wanting to splurge for the latest models.
It’s got a frame weight of 130 grams, which is pretty light. The balance point is 370mm so this should be head-heavy.
This is the Tecnifibre Dynergy Tour 125 Kickstep Squash Racket. A long name for sure, but at least you get free Kickstep with every racket. Actually I’m not sure what the “Kickstep” is for. Some stores mention the Kickstep, though the Tecnifibre Website does not. They also don’t mention that this racket is used by one of the guys in the White Pigeon squash song. HOWEVER the Tecnifibre Website does mention that Wael El Hindi plays with this racket, so I will have to keep an eye out for that.
