Thread: Which racquet?
08-15-2008, 08:28 AM #1
I am new to the sport, playing once a week at the moment with some friends from work. Can anyone point me in the direction of articles explaining the differences between racquests, so that i can make an informed decision as to what to buy when I replace.
Both the racquets look similar to squash racquets with a 'long' head http://www.jjbsports.com/squash/wils...od_112588.aspx
and all the new squash racquets don't look like this..
<y budget is around £30-40 if there are any real standout racquects that would suit a beginner.

Badminton rackets should be of the lightest and most manuverable among the three major racket sports. You don't use your wrist power to hit a tennis and squash balls. I guess the best is to stick with the 'traditional shape' rackets. Anyway, I doubt there are many odd shaped ones avalible these days. Prince/ProKennex used to make some teadrop shape rackets but they didn't seem to offer an advantage.
For 40quids, you can probably get a decent one piece graphite racket. The common ones in UK are Yonex, Dunlop, Carlton etc. They are all very decent rackets. Try to avoid those rackets with the T-joints though these days.

Thanks for the replies, now I at home can offer a bit more info
the two rackets I have are
Talbot terminator longstring alu head & graphite shaft and a Wilson dimension?
I tried googling these but to no avail..

I guess they are pretty old rackets. Well, I remember seeing some like the Wilson dimension, but it was so vague.

kwun, really? But then you do not often have that kind of wrist 'whipping' action in squash?
