As a squash player, there are a few details you need to be aware of when faced with having to invest in new squash equipment.

Your squash racket can help you strengthen your weaknesses in your game once the basic technique is in place.

There are 3 points you need to consider regarding your new squash racket.

1. Geometry
2. Weight
3. Material

Geometry is about the design of the squash racket. A squash racket with a teardrop-shaped head has different properties than a squash racket with an elongated head.

When you have to choose your new squash racket, there are primarily 2 extremes in the geometry you can choose from, namely the control squash racket and the power squash racket. In between, a hybrid has been developed that unites the properties.

Examples of control squash rackets: Tecnifibre Suprem, Dunlop Precision Ultimate Zateq Superiour 130.

Examples of power squash rackets: Head Graphene Cyano, Wilson Tempest Lite, Dunlop Revelation and Zateq X-Power.

Examples of hybrid squash rackets: Dunlop Evolution, Wilson Ripper, Zateq Conqueror.

A control squash racket is characterized by the closed neck, which provides a pronounced torsional stability. At the same time, the ratio between the longitudinal and transverse strings is small, which means less trampoline effect, and thus a more precise departure angle at hits. A control squash racket will typically be a choice for the player who is looking against the technical game and who appreciates being able to place the ball accurately.

A power squash racket is characterized in that the ratio between the longitudinal strands and the transverse strands is greater. It is designed with a teardrop-shaped head where the neck is open. This allows for longer main strings, the longitudinal strings, often called "mains" (main strings). Longer strings provide more trampoline effect and thus more power. At the same time, the construction means that the torsional stability around the head is less than with the closed neck. However, the longer strings provide an increased sweetspot, which for most models means that forgiveness is higher for mishits. The power racket will be a natural choice for the player who has a more offensive style of play and who wants to push the opponent against the back wall.

The hybrid squash racket is a mixture that is constructed with a closed neck, however designed so that the strings are as long as possible. This means that a sensible compromise can be reached between power and control.

The weight of the squash racket is related to your playing style. If you are an aggressive squash player who wants to hit hard, or you are a newer squash player with a slower turn, then a heavier and head-heavy squash racket will be preferable. This will help you send the ball down to the wall, and keep your opponent busy.

If you are a squash player with a good technique, and are able to swing fast without errors, then a lighter squash racket may be preferable.

The material is extremely important when it comes to the properties of your new squash racket. Aluminum is recommended for beginners who have just started squash, as the racket does not break so easily. However, you should expect poor game quality with a cheap Alu squash racket, compared to a pure fiber racket. Vibrations can be a problem for the aluminum frames, and many models do not have an actual shaft, but just 2 rods which are attached to a plastic handle. The price is cheap, and if you only want to use the racket a few times, it can be quite a sensible choice.

For little money you can buy a squash racket in full fiber, either a mix of glass and carbon or a pure carbon squash racket. Here you get a comfortable and good racket, where the playing quality is top notch. If you choose a squash racket in fiber with a weight of 150-160 grams, then the durability is significantly different when talking squash rackets for beginners, compared to the very light carbon rackets.
