All brands are good I guess,but in my opinion,the best brand is that which feels good in the hand.Now that is an entirly personal choice,For example,with both Dunlop Ice tour Raquet and Head intelligence which weighs appox 120 gms,is very good when I paly with it,and try as mush,A Prince raquet is never good for my game.

Maybe its Psychological,but let it be that way,I want to play a good game,and both raquets and shoes are the implements when you have to play a good racquet game.

I started with a Head which was heavy and now I have moved on to A Head Intelligence which I feel is just great.

If anyone out there has something else to share,Please do it,I shall be glad for each one's opinions.

Hi All,

Has anyone used Wilson ncode 135 (

  • What has been your experience with regard to  power, balance and the quality of stock strings?
  • What string and tension would you recommend for a balance of hard hitting and control.

I've been using ncode 120 and loved the balance (head heavy) and slightly solid feel as compared to Head racquets.

Thanks very much for sharing your experience!

Hello in the Newer Year.

Re: Racketts

* According to my experience (proffesional amateur player ) it really is very subjective choice. Dunlop is the best "ADVERTISED and PROMOTED" brand. I did play with Head, Prince, e-squash, Wilson and I stay with Wilson (n120 nowadays). Year ago or soI did check Dunlops as well. For me they felt too stiff. But if you give me a month or two I will adjust my game to them. So... even not known brand as Manta may be good

Happy Squashing!

I own two rackets, a Dunlop Hot Melt Pro which is brilliant, and an e-Squash James Willstrop, which is ok. I think Dunlop do the best rackets in general, although Wilson seem to have a fair few good ones as well.

It is a good idea to go to the Gear Reviews under Member Services and you will be able to see what other members have had to say about their rackets, etc.

I started out with Head as a Junior and liked the balanced feel of it, I was totally against Karakal at the time, they were waay too light for my game. 10 years later I notice the brands I used to loathe are coming up with some decent racquets - even Black Knight and Prince...but I still choose not to use them because of past opinions I guess. Now I am playing with a Manta racquet. I WAS playing with a 150 gram neutral weight Head, now I'm playing with a slightly head heavy 125g Manta Ice and I really like it...
