    IONThe Ion series has been developed in collaboration with multiple British Open Champion David Palmer, and the Ion Storm was used for his 2008 British Open victory. The Ion racquets use Nano-Crystalline Technology (NCT) as an additive to the polymer structure of the graphite frame, for reinforcement at key stress points while allowing for finetuning of the weight and balance. The combination of NCT with the Ion frame geometry also effectively reduces frame distortion and torque for a larger sweetspot and greater control for hard hitters such as Palmer. The shaft is flared in 2 dimensions between the bridge and the handle to create a progressive flex, increasing power transfer.

    Hi-Tec S701 4SYS Squash & Indoor Court Shoes 4:SYS midsole:  Dynamic Motion Control for your feet.

    Your footwork during a rally is dynamic and constantly changing therefore your footwear needs to react to every movement. 4:SYS technology is the culmination of three years research and testing into the dynamics of movement. It delivers more support, stability and control by increasing the time from heel contact to shot. This in turn reduces the transfer of energy during your footstrike. Each 4:SYS shoe adopts five different densities in seven locations to deliver more control and stability. It does not isolate pressure zones into two areas (heel and forefoot) like other traditional shoes, as it works holistically. Shock absorbing materials have been inserted to control and stabilise your lunge and landing whilst Energy return materials have been placed to provide lift after the shot is played.
