I started playing squash a couple months ago and wanted to finally purchase my own racket. I'd like to spend less than $70, and was wondering what you guys thought of these three rackets:

Prince Air Drive 140- 140 grams, 485 cm head- $62
Prince TT Reflex 160- 160 grams, 485 cm head- $40
Dunlop Hot Melt Graphite- 160 grams, 500 cm head- $60

Or is there another racket you'd suggest? I'm thinking the Air Drive 140, because it seems like it would allow my game to develop more than the other rackets (seems to be more a control racket), but I was looking for some input.

Dunlop for sure sounds like the most advertised and endorsed brand in squash, though I would recommend you Prince a bit more. Dunlop is a VERY stiff framed racket. Air Drive 140 is a good choice, just make sure that you can buy more than one bat. Just in case :-)

I've never played with a Prince, but I use a Hot Melt Pro at the moment, which I think is a brilliant racket. I'd certainly recommend a Dunlop.
