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:
- 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 →
- Laurielh on Black Knight Hex Phenom:
I have been playing with the Black Knight Omega for years now (as a good alternative to the old Dunlop Ice Elite) and wondering whether to change over to the Hex Phenom? Does it have less feedback/vibration than the Omega? Any information is much appreciated. Many thanks →
- Barry Werth on About Squash Source:
Pierre, I agree with your comments regarding squash shoes. I have a wide foot and always had trouble finding the right shoes until I discovered the Prince NFS shoes which fit perfectly but now they are discontinued. I wish I had bought more than one pair last time! Can you suggest which shoes I should try that might suit wide feet now that the NFS ones are no longer available?? →
- Marcin on Oliver Apex 500:
Ben, "slightly fragile" makes me ask have you eventually cracked this frame? →
- Marcin on Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 S:
Hi, Does anyone know (and still remember:) how much a removable bumper guard weights? I am wondering what weight reduction should I expect if bumper is off, eyelest only. →
- Kevin T on Black Knight Ion Element PSX Daryl Selby:
I picked up a couple of these used but like new on Ebay for >$40 a piece and I absolutely love the frame. It's solid as a rock, great power and control. I have the non-Selby black version, as well. It's fantastic but actually prefer the slightly heavier Selby. Was trying out the Harrow Vapor, which plays nice but feels like balsa wood in comparison. I was always concerned the slightest wall contact would shatter it like glass. 🙂 Anyone happen to know the status of Black Knight? Their Canadian site is being updated and says "The next big thing is coming soon". They haven't released a new frame since before Covid and I saw a Cornell squash video with David Palmer (current or former Black Knight co-owner?) using an Ashaway tear drop model frame. Each time I've inquired about frame availability from BK USA I'm told 'check back in a few months' due to supply chain/shipping issues. I've tried pretty much all brands but keep going back to BK, so really hoping they stay in business. Cheers! →
- keith murphy on Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 Heritage:
It’s essentially an X-Speed with a new cosmetic, so it is slightly different to the original Heritage. I own half a dozen of the original Heritage and bought two of the Heritage 2, I ended up sticking with the original, although there is nothing wrong with the newer racket. →

What on earth! Is he not using Ashaway or Tecnifibre? IT'S A SIN!! 😉 →
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.
