    Hi anyone been using this racket? i went to a shop and try to have a swing the feel is not as comfortable as Prince airstick 130 by Ramy. Still considering airstick 130 ,graphene 115 or carboflex 125.

      I’ve never had a chance to try out the 125. I am currently playing with the 130 and love it. It’s a touch racket but has a solid feel all around. I’ve also had a hit with the Graphene 130 and loved it too. I’ve never felt comfortable with those Airstick-style Prince rackets where the string wraps around.

      Its a great racket as recently played a tournament with it.Light with right balance.Punch along with control is great.I have used zero Gel, Hammer series etc but I think it is a great addition .Not sure on the durability though as Dunlop Zero Gel took a lot of torture especially in rallies you are trying to retrieve every single ball.

    Thanks Pierre! I got shoulder injuries that why looking for lighter racket. And hope that racket will absorb more vibration before it injured my shoulder again . Playing like old man at the age of 29 . Thanks for your advise!

    Hi i am currently using the Airstick 130, used the carboflex 125 and the graphene 115. I think the primary difference in selection for these rackets is your playing style! 115 is great but numb at the front of court, carboflex needs an awful lot of accuracy to use and frankly i found out how poor i am at hitting a shot from the same spot on my racket … the airstick 130 is forgiving and yet has let me improve my game over just 4 months !!! but hands down i am aiming to use the carboflex once again once i feel i have more accuracy in my shot, the racket feels like a sword ready to slice and dice on the court.

    Hi Pierre, Paul from PDHsports done a review on the three carboflex rackets and he found the 125 to be most powerful but if you look closely it is also the least accurate, but he found the 130 and 140, to have the same power, he also says they have lots of control, whilst being a power racket. Here is the link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ynHDG0yuCdA
    Also Paul has done a power test on the ‘power’ range of rackets. Here is the link.

    Hello on the market for a new squash racket. I am currently using a HEAD stream microgel 150 gm and 335 balance. I am debating between the tecnifibre carboflex 125 or the Head graphene 135. The racket I have is great for power but a little heavy for me. I want something powerful but with good control too.

    • Pierre Bastien says

      Hi Sophie, I’m not sure which would be best! I am going to start a new feature on my blog called “ask the readers” and I will pose your question to everybody and see what they think. Best

    • Pierre Bastien says

      Hi Sophie, sorry I wasn’t able to give you any advice on this yet. Did you already buy a new racket, or are you still considering what to purchase?

      • Sophie says

        No worries, No I am still debating between the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 and the HEAD Graphene Cyano 135. Thanks for your input.

    I am back from a tennis elbow and I needed a lighter racket. I used to play with the Blacknight C2C black. I decided to try the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 and I am very glad I did. This racket is amazing, very light without losing any power and so easy to volley with it.
    The only thing I had to do, is to change the string on it. (supernick 18 at 25 lbs)
    and it made a huge difference.

    By far the best racket I have used so far.

    This is the best racquet i have till date. Got great pop and its flex accentuates your swing speed, it can grant the ball some serious velocity, no learning curve, unlike some reviews i found it to be bang bang from the word go. Least vibrations of all the 125 grams and below raquets. Never felt any as light as stable, vibration free and at the same time great feel and explosive power from front and rear court. Spot on on volleys, huge improvement on Prince Airstick 130 i have. Airstick feels puny on power as compared to this beast.

    Juniors as well – my son (11) playing at club and regional level had been using the Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 Basaltex for the last 9 months.

    Three weeks ago he switched to the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125. during that time his volleying ability has improved at a real pace and his general power and touch has shown improvement as well. I realise its not only the racket but its definitely benefitting him, the best racket he’s used so far.
