 Guys i've playing for quite 1 year and my gameplay is awsome i've been using a prince  airstick 130 and i've been happy but the raquet it's not fitting my skills, SPECIALLY on control, again... specially on drop shots, so i need you guys to recommend me a nice raquet with mid power i don't need power at all since i'm strong, but an excesive control for my spin and drop shots. Also keeping in mind the price i need something below 140$ but with a good quality.

 It's amazing how one racquet can have such a range of responses from different players. It's always been my opinion that the racquet does not make the player, similarly for other sports, tennis, hockey,etc. I think a squash pro could beat me with a racquetball racquet or a $30 beginner racquet. 

I agree with Rippa that changing racket, strings, tension, grip, etc. are all just little fine tuning things. Things like power, touch, placement have to do more with technique, footwork, grip (not the overgrip, the way you hold the racquet). 

If you have a good technical pro around you, a good lesson regarding technique would probably help. Maybe Rippa is still doing the video review?

It  is great you have taken to the game and enjoying your play.

If you are happy with the racket, ie the weight, the feel, the sweet spot, no jarring/vibration I would look into the technique of your touch shots before I would change my racket.  Finesse is the delicate part of any game and the most difficult to accomplish without heaps/years of  practice, not only during play, but firstly in a static situation, before trying it is a game.  Routine training with a partner can be a good way to practice touch shots as well.

To me touch shots have little to do with the racket, providing it is a reasonable  brand, with good quality strings.The "feel" comes from the strikerwho needs to have "soft hands". Look at the squashgame library for more tips.
