Can anyone post a review on BK rackets? Being a canadian company, I've seen many ppl up here using it. My former instructor used BK C2C NXS White (with Maple Leafs on them...showing some pride?) and I've seen her killing these other male club members with drop shots with that racket. I used to not bring my racket purposedly to the lessons so that I can experiment with a collection of rackets the atheletic centre had. I got my hands on one of the BK racket (can't remember which one it was) and I remember getting more power with it (although it could have been the strings). I recently bought a nTour but just curious on BK's. Anyways, I'd really appreciate it if anyone could comment on BK rackets.

They're great and BK has been around forever. Their philosophy is to sponsor kids, juniors, up to university. However, they do not sponsor any pros at all, so you never see BK at the pro level. But lots of club players and university team students use it. When you see some old guy with a old BK bag, or BK racquet, you know they're really good. C2C is a very stiff racquet, and all BK are very very durable. They became famous 10 years ago with the 8110 racquet, and C2C line is now the most popular. Color scheme is always great, and even the grip and the racquet bags are great. You can never go wrong with a good blacknight.

I'm interested in getting a BK C2C White. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the C2C White I see around now and the C2C nXs White? Is the nXs an older version? Are they essentially the same racquet and thus perform equally? Any other comments on the racquet, its strings, grip, etc?

I actually bought this racket from ebay. It was too good of a deal to miss ($110 including shipping...would have been $90 if I lived in US). Anyways, I can't really desribe why it feels good because of simply a lack of experience. But I find it much more foregiving for misshits than nTour and when I nail a shot, I can notice that "feel" or get that resopnse back from the racket. I'd recommend this racket for those who are at the same level as I am (low intermediate, 8 months).

Thanks Slavic. You know what they say....begginers always blame on the equipment. haha. once I get to a certain level, I should be able to play with any racket like you've said. I just remembered feeling "good" in one of those BK rackets. Anyways, time to train with my nTour!

My previous coach did use BK racket (C2C nXS Black, 130g) and he created BK fashion in Hungary for a while, at least in few clubs. In my hand it was far too light and I could not really control my wrist (surprisingly I feel better with a bit heavier rackets), so I stayed loyal to my Wilson. If my memory serves me well I recall the flexibility of the head. But I saw my coach playing league matches and winning them with incredibly precise drops (soft and sliced), as well like hitting grenade straight line shots. So, in the hands of pro players everything turns into gold. Needles to say, he starts new season with new sponsor (Wilson), and he will praise Wilson n-120 now.

I dare to say, after certain time spent on court you develop your squash skills and the racket does not play that important role as you think it does.
