One of the racquets I have been most excited about receiving in the past little while was the new Tecnifibre Dynergy AP 125 Squash Racquet. I was excited to get in for a few reasons. First I thought the Arch Power (AP) technology would really add a new dimension to the Dynergy series of racquets. Having one of the most exciting players in the world, Miguel Angel Rodriguez playing with it I thought would add some real excitement to the racquet as well. It is also the first racquet that Tecnifibre strung with the new DNAMX 1.20 mm. I have taken the Tecnifibre Dynergy 125 AP Squash Racquet out for a hit a couple of times now. I really quite like it! It is quite good for hitting drives and also good on the volley. Touch was also good.
The new Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 S has just arrived and I am lucky I got to test it out already. This is the racquet used by Women’s World Number 4 Nour El Sherbini and I have to say that it is incredible. For the past few years I have been playing with the previous models of the Carboflex 130 and I have to say that I like the new one a lot better. It also includes a new removable bumper which gives room to play around with the balance of the racquet.
This is the racquet that rising squash star Mohamed Elshorbagy plays with. With him having won the Qatar Classic 2013 a couple of weeks ago I thought now would be a good time to post a review of it. It also gave me a good reason to pull out the demo to give it a good test hit!
I have been playing with the new Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 Basaltex Multiaxial squash racquet for about a month now and have been extremely impressed. I played with one of its predecessors the Texalium version a few years ago and loved it. In fact I would say that was probably the period of time where I hit the ball the best in my squash playing history.
When this years version came out I was excited to try it. Its weight, balance and head shape have not changed so I had very high hopes for the racquet. It has not disappointed! I have found myself really comfortable hitting the ball with this years version of the Carboflex.
