Hello all!

I need some advice, if you wouldn't mind, on buying a squash racket. I've been playing a few months now with a borrowed Wilson racket. Pretty heavy but OK. I'd like to get my own but don't want to end up with one I don't want.

I've seen a couple that I think might be quite good. I've seen a Dunlop Powermax Graphite (£25) which felt OK I think in the shop. But I've also seen a Dunlop Hot Melt C-Max Carbon on the web for £33. This seems like a 'better' racket but I don't know if it'll be better for me. Any ideas?

I'm after something with some feel. I played with someone's Unsquashable Y-TEC 690 Ti which was powerful compared to what I was used to but I couldn't feel the ball. I kept missing dropshots. Its not the sort of racket I'm after.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

First, make an idea of me to see if consider my opinion!: I've been playing squash the last 5 years, twice at week.

I've only had Dunlop rackets, 4 imodels n total, 3 for Middle players (C-Max carbon 500 / C-max titanium 525 / 2 units of BlackMax Carbon 520 ) one for Advances players (Hot Melt Pro 470)

And really the only I don't  like is the 'Pro' (probably cause  I'm not a Advaced player) but sure cause is too light so I feel more inluence of the ball speed against me, if I don't hit  the ball with the center the hit bend my hand. Now I see the Ice Elite, I like but I didn't dare...

My favourite is the Blackmax Carbon 520 (now I have my 2nd one)

So for me the important is not if the racket is better...
