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:
- Pierre on Asics Gel Game 9:
Just make sure you try them on at home first and check the fit is good →
- Mayukh on Asics Gel Game 9:
I am an amateur player, trying my hand at tennis, squash and badminton. Just bought Gel 9 thinking it would fit all purposes. Should I be worried now? →
- John on Asics Blast FF 3:
Thanks for the quick look. What do you think after further testing? →
- Pierre on Tecnifibre Slash Squash Rackets:
I imagine the Slash is similar to the Curv. Except the Slash 120 has the smaller head so it'll wobble less →
- John on Asics Netburner Ballistic FF 2:
Yeah, I think this model with the higher up feeling is really for maybe a back row volleyball person who might be going more back and fourth, and not so much diagonal or side to side like a squash player. I used to wear Asics too, I am a big fan, I wore the old Gel Tactic 2's, and really liked those, and then when they revamped the current Gel Tactic and released it in 2021, I hated them a lot. Very heavy, very clunky... supportive sure... but not great to move in for me. I then tried the Gel Blade 8's after that, and I like those, they are low to the ground, but not as much support, I ended up hurting my back playing in them one night, was it due to the lack of support? I am not sure.... Now currently I am wearing the Adidas Crazyflight's, Paul Coll style... I like them very much. I have 2 pairs I alternate between, and have had them both since beginning of this year, very happy! Durability is great, support is great, I feel light and nimble in them too. →
- Callum on Asics Netburner Ballistic FF 2:
Thanks, I think it's partly the nature of Asics, and partly just this model. I think for squash (and more so for badminton) you want more of a rock climbing shoe that provides a low foot and grip. Rather than basketball boots. Even though Asics are my favourite shoes I think that for squash cheaper shoes that are basically a laced sock with grip are better, even if they don't last like Asics. →
- Lee on Tecnifibre Slash Squash Rackets:
Keen on trying these rackets…but does anyone know how stiff these rackets are? I have the curv 130s and there’s way too much head movement for me… →
- Stephan on 9 Best Squash Shoes for 2023:
New Harrow court shoe! https://www.harrowsports.com/collections/squash-shoes/products/breeze-indoor-court-shoe?variant=40221369041030 →
- Hisham on Dunlop Blackmax Titanium:
I still have it, brand new with the original cover & grip, for sale, $ 90 →
- John on Asics Netburner Ballistic FF 2:
I have. At first I didn't mind them.. Then after not too long, something just felt a little weird to me, I wasn't able to cover the court in my normal way. Could be the thicker heel you speak of... Not sure what the deal is. I listed them for sale, the link is below this comment - but no interest, so maybe I will try them again for another play test. They were great comfort wise though! Support was also fine, I didn't slip at all. Maybe the key will be to put in a different aftermarket insole, or maybe they're just not as optimal for squash as they are for volleyball. →
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.
