- Manuel on Tecnifibre Dynamix VP:
I just strung two of my carboflex x125. One with the 305 1.10mm (which is my go to string) and one with the Dynamix VP 1.15mm. Same machine, same settings. The VP appears to be at least as elastic as the 305 even though its a bit thicker. Biggest difference is the surface feel. The 305 is smooth and the surface feels more robust. In comparison the VP feels more "sticky". It has a certain waxy feel to it and the main string "sing" when you pull through the crosses. Furthermore the surface seems to be more fragile or more as a coating since I already can see spots where it frays (but no damage at all). Also at the knots the VP looks more multi-layered whereas the 305 is "one" string. (But not as Ashaway where you see a distinct core and mantle). I expect that the VP will fray much faster than the 305 so the durability is smaller. Therefore I thick they made it in 1.15mm and not in 1.10mm. I will try them both next week in the court and keep you updated. Feels aside, the black string looks killer in the x-speed. Best regards, Manu →
- Tor on Asics Sky Elite FF:
Superb shoes. True to normal Asics sizing. Lots of cushioning and I suspect it might be easier for my lower back when doing lunges. Had less lower back pain after I started using these. There is a good amount of heel to toe drop, so you feel little bit like you are ready on your toes. Doesn't feel as speedy as let's say Blade or Fastball's, and not as much in touch with the floor, but honestly I don't think it matters much →
- Rod on Unsquashable Joel Makin Autograph:
He's also not wearing the Unsquashable kit anymore which is a giveaway. It will be interesting to see which sponsors he lands with because he clearly seems set to be a permanent fixture in the top 10 for the next several years so you'd imagine he's attractive to sponsors. →
- Pierre on Dunlop Sonic Core Squash Rackets:
Yes I am testing the classic ones now. If you find a good deal on the XTs I would go for it. They're all good rackets →
- Lloyd on Unsquashable Joel Makin Autograph:
I don't think Makin is sponsored by unsquashable any more. Still using the racket, unstenciled, his racket is on discount on website and he's not listed under their 'sponsored' players. →
- Duke on Dunlop Sonic Core Squash Rackets:
Hi Pierre. Would you get a chance to test the three classic head shape rackets?. also is it worth waiting for the Sonic core range for these 5 rackets cos in many countries the supply chain seems delayed a lot cos of Covid and China and there are a lot of sweet deals on the older Hyperfibre XT models.. →
- Rod on Unsquashable Squash Rackets:
New distribution partner for Unsquashable in Canada and some new color combinations for some of their rackets which sees them branching out from their all black designs. https://opticsports.ca/ →
- Andrew on Gregoire Marche:
Asics Gel Blade 7 were spotted in Manchester. →
- Stuart Morgan on Dunlop Hyperfibre XT Revelation Pro Lite:
Hi Pierre, after reviewing and playing with the new Sonic Core Evolution 130, would your comparison to the XT Pro still be similar to above? I.e. XT Pro gives a little more power and better for volleys vs Evo 130 a little better for control? Love to hear any other comments you have in comparison. Cheers Stu →
- Ben on Karakal Squash Strings:
Hi - anybody have any experience with the Karakal Nano 125 strings? I have two Carboflex 125s with exactly the same tension, but one was strung some 3/4 weeks before the other and it would seem that the string has stretched a bit. Anybody have the same experience, I really prefer playing with the tighter string - so is a bit of a disappointment. Let me know, please. Best, Ben →
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.
