Came across the Head Cyber Edge. Filed under cheap squash rackets. I believe this is the successor to the Head Spark Edge. This is the 2019 model I believe: Here’s the original model:
Cheap Squash Rackets
Here are the cheap squash rackets I've posted recently.
I mean cheap in the cost sense. Cheap squash rackets are often pretty thick and therefore durable.
Cheap squash rackets are usually heavier than a top-shelf squash racket. Is that bad? Not necessarily. Heavier rackets are more difficult to whip through the air quickly, and tough to make last-second adjustments with. But if you're a beginner, these things aren't as important, because you're still working on grooving a basic swing anyway.
Why get an inexpensive squash racket? Often these are a good starting point for beginners who want to try out squash or play once in a while but don't want to spend a ton of cash.
The Dunlop Blaze Pro 2.0, a 2017 model, very inexpensive at $35. Note: this was replaced by the Dunlop Blaze Pro 3.0 As you might expect, replaces the Dunlop Blaze Pro.
The Dunlop Hyper Lite Ti. 2017 model. $32.
The Black Knight Flash is an inexpensive squash racket made of aluminum and graphite. Just spotted in late 2017.
The Artengo SR 560 is an entry-level teardrop-shaped model from Artengo squash rackets. At £25, this is a steal. Here’s a review I put together:
The Mantis Xenon is a cheap squash racket, listed at £40 on the Mantis website.
The Wilson Force Team BLX, spotted in January 2017: Frame Weight: 160 grams The Wilson Force Team BLX is somewhat inexpensive (£32 at Sweatband). It looks similarly shaped to the Wilson Force 155 and Wilson Force 165, but in between them in terms of weight.
Quick post for the Head Spark Tour, also sometimes referred to as the Head AFT Spark Tour. This is a cheap squash racket from Head: Another variety. Not sure when this came out, only spotted it in 2018:
The Prince AirO Lightning squash racket: Weight: 150 grams Head Size: 484 sq cm Balance: Head-light (35 cm) according to SquashGear This racket’s pretty inexpensive at about $50. A tad heavy, and I haven’t hit with it personally, but it seems like a decent deal given the advertised specs. Might be a good one to […]
I was inspired to start a page for squash starter kits by this particular Dunlop starter pack: The racket is a Dunlop Aerogel 130. This is an older model, but still it’s a decent racket. You also get the Dunlop I-Armor goggles. These are a good pair of goggles. And finally, you have a tube […]
