- Pierre on iMask Goggles:
Here's the link: https://usa.imaskplusfaceshield.com/ Would the full-length iMask Plus provide better protection from Covid? It would help you not touch your face and that's good, but you would still be breathing the same air as your opponent. If the other guy had Covid, I think I'd probably still get it from him if we played a match →
- Kieran on Prince Hyper Pro 550:
Hi Dean, how has the hyper been holding up? →
- Ray on Wilson Pro Staff Countervail:
Just unboxed my new Pro Staff CV all black two tone (gloss middle over flat black). Some interesting markings: "Version 2.0"; Unstrung weight 140 g; "Frame weight" 123g; (balance) 35.2 cm;(area) 485 cm2. Old Version 1.0: (weight) 146 g;(area) 467 cm2; (balance) 36.0 cm. Newer racquet head extends approx. 5/16" deeper in throat, noticeably wider, I'd say it is mid way between a traditional head size and a midsize. String pattern appears marginally tighter, more so in contact zone. Head shape at the top more oval, less squared than the legacy head shape this version 1.0 racquet was taken from. On my scale including strings, weighed 148 g versus 158 g for my most recent 'version 1.0' measured in December 2019, so a bit truer to the spec weight for the new guy. →
- Tony Morrison on iMask Goggles:
Is it time to consider a full length imask in light of the coronovirus epidemic ? →
- Pierre on Tecnifibre Carboflex 140:
Hi Tau I don't know for sure on this. I would say "probably" if you are looking at rackets from the same generation. For example the "S" generation (125S, 130S etc.) I think had a different grommet pattern than the X-speed generation. What are you hoping to do exactly? →
- Tau on Tecnifibre Carboflex 140:
Hey Pierre, do you know if the Tecnifibre Carboflex 140’s grommets is the same of Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 and 130? →
- João Amaral on Prince Venom Pro 950:
I have a pair since October 2010 - the first broke after 4 months. It had a crack at the top - probably from a harder boast/hit to the wall - and i continued playing with it until it broke completely after 3 or 4 sessions. The other is still going on strong as new. My guess is that it is much better than the other Princes I have used in the past but still not as durable as a Dunlop. I never broke any of my Dunlops - despite some very hard hits - but a friend of mine did it in just a couple of games. All in all, as long as it lasts me a season i am extremely happy because there is no other racket that makes me enjoy the game as much as I do with my Pro Warrior. If I were on a tight budget my answer could be different but the facts are what they are: 2 rackets; one broke after 4 months, the other one has 5 months of gameplay without problems. I play 3 times a week at a 4.5 level (more or less). →

Have you had any durability issues with the warrior x? →

he's wearing the adidas stabil bounce - himself and Gaultier seem to be the main Adidas players →
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.
