There's a reason that our slogan is 'helping you find the right gear for your game', we at Control the 'T' believe that everybody has different playing styles and that it's important to know what gear (racquet, shoes, grip etc) will suit your game best.
It seems like everywhere is in a slightly different stage in terms of COVID related restrictions on indoor sports. However, many squash players are now managing to get on court again finally... even if it's just for solo practice!
In my humble opinion, having a good grip is equally as important as having a good squash racquet. While playing sports with high intensity levels, such as squash, getting sweaty palms is inevitable. Over the years, grips in general have changed and developed significantly from using materials like terry-cloth to using tacky rubber. A squash grip needs to find a healthy balance between comfort and grippiness, and Karakal's long-time established PU Super Grip has nailed that combination.
The Dunlop squash ball... the official ball of the WSF and PSA and the only ball used in professional international squash competitions. If you're a squash player, it's highly likely you use or have used a Dunlop ball at some point, and there's a reason for that.
With the re-opening of courts (hopefully) on the horizon, maintaining our squash based movement skills is crucial when preparing to get back to the sport.
