A Review of the Prince Textreme Pro Warrior 600 Squash Racquet

    I was very excited to receive in to the store the new Prince Textreme Pro Warrior 600 Squash Racquet. We received it just over a month ago. I was quite interested to see if the Textreme that was added to the racquet would make the racquet feel different than previous versions of the same mold. The weight and balance of the racquet was also something that had me pretty excited about it. Its 129 gram unstrung weight and balance point of 353 mm was right around what I like. Having played with both the Prince Pro Beast 750 and the Prince Airstick 130 how the Warrior compared was also of interest to me. I have been hitting with it now for a few weeks and below are my findings.

    Review of the Prince Pro Shark 650

    Jul 17, 2015 8:59:27 AM / by Diego Caballero posted in prince, Prince, prince pro shark 650, Racquet review, Review, review, squash, squash racquet, Squash Racquet, Squash Racquet Review


    I have never played with a Prince racquet before and I am very happy I got to try out the Prince Pro Shark 650. This racquet is very light yet very powerful with an amazing amount of grip. I play with a slightly heavier racquet with very similar balance to the Pro Shark (should be able to generate more power with mine) and I found out that I could generate the same amount of power with the Prince racquet. Featuring a more open string pattern, 14 x 15, I was also able to get tons of cut on the ball. This racquet not only looks great, it plays amazingly.

    Racquet Review - Prince Pro Beast Powerbite 750

    Prince Pro Beast Powerbite 750 Squash Racquet Ramy AshourThe Prince Pro Beast Powerbite 750 has been here on the shelves at Control the 'T' Sports for about 6 weeks now and I can’t believe I haven’t had a chance to appreciate the engineering that went into its design until now.  The racquet’s name aptly encompasses its distinguishing features that allow it stand apart from other racquets I’ve hit with in the past.  With elements of both touch and power, I’m having a hard time thinking of a type of player who would not make use of what it has to offer.

    Let’s begin by taking a look at what sets this racquet apart from some of the others in the Prince family.  The “bite” in the racquet is a function primarily of the string pattern that is extremely widely spaced out. Only 14 main strings and 15 cross strings are used to string the racquet on one of the largest frames Prince has to offer (480 square centimeters).

    They were not quick to arrive but we are sure glad they have. Prince is set to make a real resurgence in the squash market. They have completely revamped their lineup for this squash season which is the first time they have done so in years. Ramy Ashour is endorsing a new racquet. There are some very familiar technologies in this years lineup; EXO3 and Power Ring. A new technology in the Prince lineup for this season is their PowerBite technology. There are also some familiar model names such as the Rebel, Pro Tour and Airstick. There are some new model names as well such as the Pro Beast and Pro Shark models.

    Ramy Ashour - The 2013 Allam British Open Champion

    May 27, 2013 10:59:10 AM / by Jeff Warren posted in British Open, Player Profile, prince, prince airstick 130, PSA, Ramy Ashour


    Prince, Ramy's sponsor must be really happy with their decision to sign Ramy Ashour.  Not only has he not lost a match since he switched back to them but he left court in the final game to get a new Prince Airstick 130 because the last one he grabbed after breaking a string did not have the logo stencilled on the strings! While not technically allowed in the rules of the game I am sure it was definitely appreciated by Prince!

    Ramy Ashour is the 2013 Allam British Open Champion!

    James Willstrop at the 2013 Allam British Open

    I was interested to see that James Willstrop looks to be playing with the Prince EXO3 Pro Tour Squash Racquet at this years' British Open.  James is a Prince sponsored player of course so playing with Prince makes sense but he has been switching back and forth between racquets.  I have seen him playing with the Prince EXO3 Rebel, an old Prince Speedport and now the Prince EXO3 Pro Tour recently.  The Pro Tour is a little heavier than the Rebel but is slightly head light where the Rebel is head heavy.

    Ramy Ashour and the Prince Airstick 130

    Since the start of the 2013 Tournament of Champions there has been a great deal of conversation about Ramy Ashour and the racquet he is playing with.  We have definitely seen a spike in visits to our site about him and the racquet he is playing with.  So what is he playing with?  As the title of this post would indicate he is playing with his old favourite as pictured here, the Prince Airstick 130. The picture above is old but was a good shot of him with the Airstick 130. From what I have read he is no longer sponsored by Dunlop and is therefore free to play with what ever racquet he chooses.  His old favourite the Prince Airstick 130 is what he has gone back to.  It is a great racquet.  We have a review of it here , if you are looking to purchase one of these great racquets and are in Canada or the USA please click on Add to Cart button below.
