The Head Graphene Touch Speed 120 SB (Slimbody) is one of the Head Speed squash rackets that came out in 2017. That was the first year Head introduced the Slimbody version of their teardrop-shaped rackets.
Update: This racket is being replaced in the Head lineup by the Head Graphene 360 Speed 120 SB, which is coming out in 2019.

Head Graphene Touch Speed 120 SB Reviews
Paul from PDH Sports compares this racket with the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 S:
Here’s what a reader named Lawrence had to say about the Speed 120 SB:
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!
