Has anyone hit with this? verdict? →
- John on Head Graphene 360+ Speed 120 Slimbody:
Try using a Wilson Pro Overgrip, you can find them at Big 5, or Dick's sporting goods, they come in packs of 3 for ~$7, if you can afford to wait, then order some online. Start with the bare handle and put the overgrip on it first, play with how taught you apply the overgrip because you can really apply it thinly depending how much you stretch it out as you apply it, then put your Karakal PU over it. Once done If how you did it still feels fat, then take of PU grip and stretch the overgrip even more underneath it and redo. Hope this helps! →
- Randy on Head Graphene 360+ Speed 120 Slimbody:
What are people doing to build up the grip on this racquet? The handle has a weird shape. If you put one Karakal PU Super Grip on the bare frame, it is not enough. But two is too much. Is there some good combination of a thinner grip and a Karakal? I'd prefer to have the Karakal as the outer grip (i.e. no overgrip). →
- Dan on Squash Rules and Squash Scoring Summary:
I can’t find any rules to prove it’s a fault to cross the service line before the ball hits the wall on someone’s service. It’s rushing the wall and taking at vantage of a servers. It give you a very good advantage over a person serving. Why this isn’t in anyones rukes I don’t know. →
- Adam on Karakal Tec Pro Elite:
Turns out it has, their website says "The T Pro 120 is a fusion of the Tec Pro and T 120, taking the best features of both and created this new version of the T series frame." →
- Adam on Karakal Tec Pro Elite:
Anyone know if they’ve discontinued this racket? Can’t find it on PDH sport (UK) or Karakal’s website! →
- Francesco Lippi on Asics Blast FF 3:
Nick Mueller used these new shoes in the Czech Open →
- J on Victor IP 8 N:
Has anyone tried this racket? Looks similar to the carboflex →
- John on Tecnifibre Carboflex Airshaft 125:
Greetings, I too, experienced these feelings when I switched from the X-Speed to the Airshaft 2yrs ago when they came out. The beam of the Airshaft (the width size of the frame on the sides) is slightly bigger, or chunkier than the X-Speed. Also correct about the balance. At first I did not like these changes too much, as you said, it's less maneuverable in the air. I also agree that this feels and plays similar to the 125S/130S line from before. I got an X-Top finally, and it came in the mail last week, and I've hit with it once so far, for almost 2hrs solo. And yes, it feels and looks pretty similar to the Airshaft, just with the carbon top and elimination of the bumper. Same balance as Airshaft (in fact, my X-Top balance is a TOUCH head heavier than my Airshaft racquets), has the same beam size as Airshaft, it's pretty much an Airshaft with the carbon top-bumper-less modifications. The X-Speed was definitely a very unique racquet! I loved mine, but I made the switch. Dessouky still plays with X-Speed 125 →
- John on Tecnifibre Carboflex X-Top 125:
Oh follow up about the grommets at the top if anyone interested, yes there is a small plastic grommet strip in the middle of the top, that lies in a channel. It's pretty much as if you've taken the top bumper strip/grommet piece when replacing it, and literally cut out the outside parts that is the bumper, and left the thin piece in the middle that houses the grommets, and put it back in. It is NOT like Eye where there is no bumper or grommet strip, but instead separate little grommet pieces for every hole... No. This still has a strip, so stringing these has not become easier nor harder. →
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.
