Hi All,

I am still relatively new to squash, and in trying to find out more about this great sport I have read most of the posts on the gear forum (I love the relevant content tab).

I have been involved in bass fishing and mountain biking for a while and on those forums I see a lot of posts comparing quality to a certain price point.  For example a post might say “what is the best fishing reel for $150/$200” etc.  I guess what people are trying to do is to get the best quality product for the amount that they are prepared to pay. 

In searching this forum I see that people are generally reviewing high end squash racquets, but I also am noticing that people are talking about racquets breaking a lot (which I haven’t experienced yet – touch wood).  My question is - are there people who purchase at a price point? ie.  I’m going to set myself a budget of $100 or $120 and find the best racquet for me at that price point.  Or do people find that it is just better to buy top end racquets (performance outwaying cost)?

 Here is a list of racquets that I truley beleive are under valued.

Dunlop Vision 110

Tecnifibre Carboflex Series, (140, 135, 125)

Karakal BX 150 

I am sure these prices are consistant across NA.

I beleive these racquets are more than sufficient for beginner - intermediate - and even advanced players.

Hope this helps

Cheers

agreed. when you first start out reasonably priced and durable is the way to go. after you improve you can find a racket that better suits your game.

I think it is difficult to compare fishing gear to squash gear.  Mostly we refer to "beginners racket", "good club player" "number of times per weeks spent using the racket".  Unless a player is rich I would say to purchase a durable racket for the price, and that would not be something the pros would use.

Squash court walls are hard on rackets, and to be able to" have a go" at the ball without worrying about breaking the racket is important.  Until you become accurate, and have finesse I think choose what feels good and the price suits is an ok way to start.  Also try out a few demo models at your club to get a better idea.
