Many Squash Source readers have left valuable comments and reviews on the site. If you have any feedback on your gear, I encourage you to leave feedback in the comments section so others can benefit from your knowledge. Here are the latest comments on the site:
- J on Dunlop Sonic Core Iconic 130:
This racket is fantastic. I can completely understand why a pro would opt for something lighter and more streamlined, but for a club player I have to say that this racket makes your technique better! The balance is absolute perfect (truly even 'feeling') but the weight being on the 'heavy' side means power is easy and there's lots of control. I also have to say that the sweet spot is enormous because the head shape is wider than most 'classic' headshapes; this racket is supposed to be a remake of the Jonathan Power C-Max Muscle Weave which had a head size of 525cm^2, the Iconic 130 has an advertised 500cm^2 but I suspect that it is actually also 525cm^2 because of how forgiving it feels! Due to the large head size I think 16x19 strings was a great choice. My only complaint is that the frame is thicker than I am used to from other Dunlop Sonic Cores, this does not affect hitting tight balls but I can feel a difference in air resistance when swinging quickly. →
- Mark on Dunlop Hotmelt Pro:
My Jonathon Power Hotmelt pro weighs in at 155 grams and has a balance of 37.5cm →
- John on Wilson Pro Staff Light / Pro Staff L:
2019 Version for sale used 4x - ~5hrs of A level play on frame. https://www.ebay.com/itm/296023644177?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=2ULOMls9Txe&sssrc=2524149&ssuid=2ULOMls9Txe&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY →
- Jan on Karim Abdel Gawad:
I guess Tecnifibre 305 1.1 →
- Victor Kratochvil on Ashaway PowerKill ICE 125 VM:
One of the best feeling racquets purchased. Over last 30 years I use fairly high end racquets from Dunlop, head etc($200) and this one has me winning against my long time foes. →
- Marcin on Salming Viper SL:
Pierre, apparently, Marwan has signed with Salming and opted for Viper SL. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cyc_8lMonE5/ →
- J on Which Squash Strings Are Best for You?￼:
Slow reply but, he uses Kirschbaum Gut Feeling 1.22mm at 24lbs →
- Alex Harvey on Eye X.Lite 115 Pro / Control:
I had this racket and was very disappointed that the frame weight did not even resemble 115g. My racket weighed 170g total!! That's heavier than my 135g dunlop aerogel ultimate (132g advertised frame weight) which weighs 160g with string and grip. Sold it on and moved to an Ashaway Pro 110sl which weighs about 140 strung. →
- Fangrag on Wilson PY 138 BLX:
I recently saw this racket from local auction site, couldnt resist this unique looking shape. It indeed offers a great deal of power. probably the most powerful racket I've played with. apart from its ugly design, it also makes a whistle sound whilst swing. the whistle probably comes from the PY power yoke, which could be wilson's attempt to prince's power ring. It is the ultimate product of bad design, which makes it brilliant. →
- Andrew on Tecnifibre Slash Squash Rackets:
I got the 120 slash. It's different to the curv 125. Better feedback through the frame , more powerful and quicker through the air. Definitely an improvement. →
About Squash Source
This is a squash gear website that I run in my spare time. My mission here is to build a side business around helping people learn about squash equipment and find the gear that suits them best. You can learn more about Squash Source here.
Squash Source does not sell squash equipment, but instead links to online squash stores where you can buy equipment. The good thing about this setup is I can post gear from all around the world, without having to keep products in stock.
The way this site makes money is primarily through those links to stores. Sometimes if you buy through one of the sponsored links here, Squash Source will get a commission on the sale. Other times, in exchange for linking to them, stores will send me squash equipment, which I review on the site.
So far, I have linked to squash stores in Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, USA, and the UK! See a complete list of my affiliates here.
You can also support Squash Source directly (and get your own login for commenting on the site).
