Power and Control
on 11 February 2010
I have been playing squash for some time. My previous racket was the Head i.110
I bought this racket about 1 month ago now and never looked back. Without a doubt
this is the best racket I have ever put my hands on.
One thing that strikes me about this racket and other prince rackets I have tested
is that it does what it says on the tin -- often you hear claims of inconceivable amounts of
power and control only to be let down on the court but this racket is very powerful especially on
drives. I also noticed that it is very forgiving when retrieving difficult shots, at this point I often
find the control and accuracy combined with the power at that crucial moment brings a smile to my face
and a look of confusion to my opponent :o)
If you are used of Head rackets, you will notice the handle is slightly more rounded in comparison -- This may
throw you on the first few times you play however I actually prefer this now and for some reason It feels like a more natural
grip, which means I dont find myself constantly asjusting for comfort or correcting it because it has slipped.
The unique part of this racket is the speedports, these seem to make the racket move through the air faster resulting in
better reaction times and more power. The speedports also increase the sweet spot to what prince call the sweet zone -- again
not a hollow claim this really works in practice. I noticed that off centre shots are almost non existent and those light touch shots
have become a reliable part of my arsenal because I am confident I can pull them off more consistently.
I conclusion my advice is clear, if you want a racket that delivers on its claims then this is the racket for you. Power - Accuracy and control time after time, no space age gels or nano fibres, just pure innovation and engineering that you can see and benefit from in
