Squash Gear Reviews
I do many equipment reviews, which you can find embedded throughout the site. For the latest reviews, check out the Squash Source YouTube channel.
Many Squash Source readers have also left valuable 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 Best Squash Gear 2019:
Hi Laird, Holabird still has them in a 3-pack, I've updated the link now... →
- Laird on Best Squash Gear 2019:
Hi Pierre, I also favor overgrips for sweat absorption. I have used tourna grip (over a karakal pu replacement) exclusively for the past three years, but I also find the longevity to be lacking, often really falling off within a week of three 90-minute sessions. I'm interested in the Solinco, but it seems that holabird isn't carrying it any more. It would only make sense to buy in the 12-pack (that's the advantage of tourna--the relatively affordable 30 packs--over superior overgrips like wilson's, in my opinion). Do you know any other outlets that stock the solinco for the US market? →
- Colin on Qatar 2019 Equipment Updates:
Just saw this was posted on the Karakal racquet page here. Sorry! →
- Colin on Qatar 2019 Equipment Updates:
Not Qatar tournament, but since no there’s no channel Vas tournament page yet, looks like Tom Richards is using a different racquet than previously, think it’s a Karakal →
- Tor on Xamsa Squash Rackets:
There is a few biased bs comments about these strings not holding up, or beeing «factory strings» or the classic «generic» term. Fact is that the strings Xamsa put in their rackets are high end made by one of the biggest string distributors out there. I hope you´ll receive a batch of eXposed incognito´s from Tim to review in the near future so you´ll get the possibility to point exactly that out. →
- Tor on Xamsa Crucible:
This racket needs more loving here on squashsource, so I´ll put in a few words. I am fond of trying out different squash equipment such as rackets (yeah...) if i can borrow, demo or if I have a fat enough wallet to just buy them for fun, but for obvious reasons that ain`t possible, and after a while I always end up falling back on the Crucible anyway; because it is an exquisite racket! I have two versions. The original Crucible which is described in Pierre`s video post right here (thoroughly in Tjeerd`s comment also which is spot on), and the eXposed version which simply is a stripped down one. Bumper and grommet has been replaced with eyelets by co-founder of Xamsa, Tim himself. What an amazing thing they have going out towards their customers and sworn Xamsa racket users (you might end up one too if you try them out). I recommend anyone not familier with Xamsa to check out the home page and read up... I prefer the one with eyelets as it is lighter and more manueverable and also more fun on court. See Tjeerd`s comment on the original Crucible underneath and think 10 grams lighter and balance a cm more to the handle. It is easier for me to add some deception in to my game with this. I feel more comfortable with early preparations and I can hold the swing longer cause of the lightness. It is little bit less forgiving compared to the original, but I'm willing to give away some of it for all the other benefits the racket gives me. One would assume that reaching proper length would be an issue cause of weight/balance, but I have no difficulty what so ever in reaching the back corners. You can get your Xamsa delivered with Xamsa strings (which is in fact top of the line) or with different Tecnifibres or Ashaways. Customer care one hundred % and perfected rackets i kid you not. Oh and last but not least I almost forgot: You`re getting more bang for your buck. →
- Joao on Prince Venom Pro 950:
Pro Warrior X is the closest I have played with ever if not slightly more powerful. In my scale my Airstick with Karakal grip and Ashaway strings weights 140gr and does not feel head-heavy at all. The Pro Warrior arrived weighting as much as 150 but once i replaced the grip and the strings (same as the Airstick) it came down to 145gr. I tend to believe that the Airstick is lighter in the head but the truth is that when I hold them with my eyes closed I can't tell the difference and randomly pick one or the other, so I guess they do feel the same. There are a few posts explaining the differences between the Pro Warrior 600 and the X. i would not take any chances and go for the X. →
- Kieran on Prince Venom Pro 950:
I played with the 110 for a few months..loved it, the only downside I found was the lack of power on certain shots. I found I had to improve my technique to get some extra juice. I now play with the new carboflex 125 and am loving it! →
- Qasim on Prince Venom Pro 950:
Any recommendations for prince ranchers that would replace the air stick 130. Looking for something slight more solid with a similar balance. →
- Rod on Best Squash Gear 2019:
Thanks for that feedback. Like you, I'm a serial foot dragger and so better durability is important for me! →
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.
