Well I’ve moved to a new house here in Philadelphia (a few blocks from my old one) and I’m going to start filling in the blanks from my 2012 US Open equipment roundup. First up is the Oliver Apex RS-7, which Simon Rosner plays with.
It comes in two flavors. One is the “Simon Rosner Edition”, which you see pictured above. This is, as you might guess, the one Simon plays with.
There is also the regular Apex RS7, which looks like this:

Technically this is called the RS 7.1. I guess they name their rackets like they’re software releases. Which come to think of it is probably what I would do too, if I owned a racket company.
Anyway this guy is pretty light, 115 grams, and is slightly head-heavy, according to Oliver’s Website. This is actually my first time posting about Oliver Squash Rackets. Looks like they are a German company, so it makes sense they’ve collaborated with the talented Herr Rosner. His first name is Simon but the guys on Squash TV pronounce it “SEE-mon”. I’m sure it’s not ideal to learn your German from the guys on Squash TV but you’ve gotta start somewhere.
Here’s Simon with (a previous version of) his Oliver Squash Racket:
