Recently we received the new Black Knight Quicksilver LT and Black Knight Quicksilver MAX. These are Black Knight’s new racquets from the Quicksilver series and, even though they are very different from each other, they are both amazing for different reasons. I took them out for a hit earlier this week and was impressed with what these racquets can do. Also, I got Cameron Seth, the University of Waterloo Squash varsity team’s captain, 2014 OUA champion and MVP, and 2014-2015 Men’s All-Stars, to try them out as well and give me his thoughts since he has been using the previous Quicksilver nXs model for a couple years now. I will give my opinion about each racquet in different categories with some of Cameron’s comments as well.
The Black Knight Quicksilver nXs squash racquet has been an extremely popular racquet now for years. It is one of our best sellers. The current Quicksilver has been around for several years now and was preceded by the Quicksilver CXX which was also very popular.
The frame weight of a 130grams is quite light. It has a fairly even balance. Its light weight and silver paint are what makes this racquet live up to its name. It is a very quick racquet to manoeuvre and its silver paint certainly draws attention.
