The Wilson Tour BLX squash racket is used by men’s pro players Peter Barker of England, Nicolas Müller of Switzerland, and Tom Richards of England.
Apparently this racket is made with basalt fibers. That’s right, basalt, which is just cooled-off lava, straight from a volcano. Which is exactly what people are going to say about you, if you play with this racket.
Check out Peter Barker using the racket against Nick Matthew in this crazy rally from the finals of the 2011 Case Swedish Open. Peter’s moving so well. You might even say he’s flowing like lava.
Here’s USA’s Timothy Brownell with this racket at the 2019 TOC:
