HEAD i110 Squash Racket
The Head i110 squash racket has been around for a good few years now, but it is still one of the lightest rackets on the market.
Personally, I’ve always preferred a light racket but then again I’ve never progressed further than low-level county standard. I’ve heard that a lot of professional players like a little more weight to help with the swing.
The racket is made of titanium carbon fibre and is 260 grams including strings. Possibly doesn’t need stating but 110 grams for the racket unstrung or 3.9 oz for our American friends.
It has a teardrop head shape and includes HEAD intellifibres apparently these aim to reduce 20% of vibrations on ball impact stiffening the racket for explosive power. It is kind of a black and grey in colour.
Light rackets can be a good choice for players that like to use a lot of deception. The lightweight enables a little flick of the wrist so that hopefully you can play a shot different to what your opponent was expecting!
I have actually used this racket myself, honest, and personally, I liked it, however, it was many years ago and I seem to remember it breaking pretty quickly from a light tap on the wall after playing a boast shot
It includes a ComforTac- grip for great traction, feel and moisture absorption although personally, I hate racket supplied grips and usually replace them with a Karakal grip. The racket comes with a 3/4 cover.
