- LS on Asics Blast FF 2:
Is the Blast FF2 lighter than the original? →
- Nico on Head Graphene 360+ Radical 135X:
Solid racquet with smooth and forgiving contact on the ball. Excellent for powerful drives and has little to no flex through the shaft. Is a heavyish racquet and requires a bit of strength to wield about so not for everyone. I went from the 120 Xenon Slimbody to this and prefer it’s power through a stiffer heavier frame to the 120’s light but “vibey’” control / touch oriented frame. The Radical 135X feels slightly less head heavy than the Radical 135 (smaller head), and has a little more power. The tighter stringing pattern of the 135X should make for a longer string life. Recommended! →
- Tor Schjølberg on Tecnifibre Carboflex Airshaft 125 NS:
Yeah, this pretty much equals out the difference. Maybe still a 0.15 or 0.20 slimmer, but noticeable. I like it too, but the feel/weight distribution on my x-speed Shorbagy and the x-speed NS are way different from one another. Maybe a result of the famous 5g +/- →
- Laurielh on Black Knight Hex Phenom:
Many thanks for your help and comments Rod. It helps that you have played with BK rackets and something similar to the Omega with the Razor. I may take the plunge and get one, PDH sports in the UK have a returns policy so that might be the way to go. Happy hitting. →
- Mazen on Harrow Clash:
Hello, I have this racket and used it for 2 months then stopped cause my trainings are stopped too so I don't need it anymore. Is there anyway to sell it to you and you reuse it as new cause it doesn't have any scratches or usage cracks? →
- Rod on Head Graphene Touch Radical Slimbody 120:
I got this racket as part of the Squashgalaxy demo program. It weighed in at 151g on my scale (including grip, strings + strip of bumper tape that Squashgalaxy puts on all their demo rackets). The balance point is detailed as Even on the racket and that felt right in the hand and is a balance that I typically enjoy. The head size is 475cm squared and so slightly smaller than the other head shapes in the Head lineup. I liked the cosmetic of the racket as well as the overall head shape. It's been a while since I've played a classic racket head design with a full size bridge and I was pleasantly surprised by the power I was able to generate with it. The slim body design made it slightly easier to pick tight balls off the side wall on a more consistent basis. I felt like my volleying improved a little bit with this racket compared to my gamer (Dunlop Hyperfibre+ Evolution 130) and there was definitely one great volley drop I hit off a dropping ball that I felt I wouldn't have made with my Dunlop. Of the 3 Head rackets I tried this one was my favorite and I definitely strongly considered ordering 2 to have as my go to racket going forward. Ultimately I didn't do it because I didn't think it was enough of an upgrade to justify spending my money on 2 new rackets but it was a close run thing. If one of my Dunlops breaks in the next 6 months I think this will be my next racket. →
- Rod on Head Graphene 360 Speed 120 SB / 120 Classic:
I got the Head Graphene 360 Speed 120 SB racket as part of the Squashgalaxy demo program. It weighed in at 141g on my scale (including grip, strings + strip of bumper tape that Squashgalaxy puts on all their demo rackets). The balance stated on the racket was head light and it definitely felt head light in the hand. I wanted to like this racket, I think the cosmetic is super cool and it came strung with a neon blue string which looked great. I figured the light weight would really help my volleying but unfortunately the light weight combined with the head light balance made it difficult for me to get good length from a punched volley, especially on the backhand side. Power was a bit lacking from all areas of the court which just meant that this is a racket that I couldn't have in my bag. I did like the slim body design for picking tight balls of the walls and the feel and accuracy though. →
- Rod on Head Graphene 360 Speed 135 SB:
I got this racket as part of the Squashgalaxy demo program. It weighed in at 161g on my scale (including grip, strings + strip of bumper tape that Squashgalaxy puts on all their demo rackets). Balance point is stated as head light and that seemed about right in the hand. A powerful racket for sure and one that I enjoyed hitting with. I didn't love the feel off the strings but that is likely due to the stock strings that come with the racket and I imagine that feel would improve greatly if I restrung it with my preferred string and tension. This could absolutely be a racket that I would be happy to make my playing racket but I just didn't feel like it was much, if any, of an improvement on my current gamer, the Dunlop Hyperfibre+ Evolution 130. →
- Rod on Black Knight Hex Phenom:
Seeing as nobody else had feedback for you, I'll try and do what I can without having hit the HEX. I used to play with the BK Razor TC which was basically identical to the Omega. I switched from the Razor TC to the Element PSX which I absolutely loved. The feedback on shots was significantly better. So that could be a good option if you can find one. One previous commenter, Larry, said that the HEX was an upgrade over the PSX Element. So connecting the dots...yes it probably is a significant upgrade over the Omega. Shape should be similar, and it should play better. →
- Rod on Squash Bags and Squash Backpacks:
I've been receiving ads on Instagram for this bag and, although very pricey, it looks to very thoughtfully designed. Room for plenty of rackets, a ventilated shoe pocket and a dedicated cooler pocket designed to keep drinks cold and free standing when you put it down in an upright position. Lots of organized storage options for smaller items too. If I hadn't bought a new bag a couple of months ago I would be tempted by this. Good looking bag too. https://www.advtennis.pro/products/adv-tennis-bag →
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.
