I judge a squash racket by how it performs over a long period, so this is very premature. The racket arrived very quickly, so full marks for that. The first thing you need to do with this racket is get a better handle grip, since the original is too narrow for my hand (and I don't have a big hand), and also the supplied grip is quite smooth and you would be likely to lose the racket if you have sweaty hands. Otherwise, having played with it 4 times now it feels good to play with. Responds well if you hit the sweet spot. Ask me again in 12 months time.
