Paul from PDH Sports compares this racket with the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 S:
This is one of the new Head Speed squash rackets coming out in 2017 and it’s a new mold entirely from Head, a Slimbody version of their teardrop-shaped rackets. There’s also a 135-gram alternative called the Head Graphene Touch Speed 135 Slimbody.
Head hasn’t done away with their classic Cyano teardrop shape though — they have come out with a new version of that called the Head Graphene Touch Speed 120. Here’s what a reader named Lawrence had to say about the difference between the two rackets:
The difference is that the 120 is head-heavy and is based on the popular Cyano model (chunky); whilst the 120SB is the Slimbody version and is head-light.
I immediately took to the SB and play-tested it. It’s (almost!) everything you could ask for in a racket – light, powerful and with lots of control. Drives were accurate and deep, volleys were easy and drop shots found the nick most of the time! And these were with the factory strings!
I loved it so much I bought two!
Also loved the Slimbody construction and color, now it looks like a mean weapon of destruction!
One thing to note about this racket — there is NO bumper guard!
