How To Choose A Squash Racquet?
There are two primary types of composition in a squash racquet; the open throat design and the single post, teardrop or closed throat construction.
In squash there are three different categories of balance in a racquet. Head light racquets, head heavy racquets and even balanced racquets. Each play very differently and have different benefits to the player. After-market modifications of grip or strings or lead tape may alter the original factory specs but general specifics are below.
Squash racquets range in weight from 135 grams to 170 grams. The appropriate weight of the racquet typically depends on personal preference, however there are advantages to both a lighter racquet and a heavier racquet. Keep in mind that Harrow racquets are listed as strung, finished weights so the advertised specs may appear to be heavier than other brands. That finished weight (including all or a variation of paint, grip and grommets) can add 15-25 grams to another brands “frame weight”. The only Harrow models that note frame weight are the Reflex, Response and Meta racquets.
