I've used this racket a few times when coaching. It feels quite heavy and has some flex in the shaft and produces a little more power than control. I've played and coached for more years than I care to remember and I wouldn't use this racket for match play but..... I run a regular ladies session with a group of novice players and all of them like this racket when they use it. I recommend they use this racket over and above a more expensive one as it plays better for them while they're at their current playing standard. As they improve they will most likely move onto a different racket. Definitely recommend for those recently started who want more power.
I enjoy using it, good potential, even when attacking.
I think it is a relevant racket with a good maniability
I am happy about it and I can easily compare it with my old Technifibre model. I like the fact it is easy to handle.
The frame got cracked at the very beginning. Don't know if it was one odd piece which could not withstand the strain or otherwise.
This is a very good racquet for control. The head size is perfect and the balance also . The weight is perfect.
Awesome racket that i have been using for about three months now. Great for beginners who are looking to move onto more serious or frequent squash playing.
Thank you for your honest reply. We are glad that you enjoy playing squash with our racket. Indeed our SR960 Control squash racket offers more precision and easy to handle for most of the players. With the new design and production for this racket, it helps a lot more in terms of accuracy. Also, as you mention that you have been using this racket for about three months, so if you feel your string tension is getting lower, you can always come back to us to change a new string. I would recommend you to our Squash String SST500. It gives more control and comfort on impact, which complements your SR960 Control. Even better, the strings actually maintain its tension very well with the helps of improving the feel and of course, is very durable! Really glad that you enjoy using our squash racket. And again, thank you for your wonderful feedback and hope to see you in store soon!
Très bonne raquette, très maniable.
Je joue a plutôt haut niveau et je trouve la raquette de grande qualité. Elle est selon moi comparable à des Technifibre Suprem. les points qui lui enlèvent une étoile cependant : - Un jonc beaucoup trop fragile en bout de raquette - Un cordage pas à la hauteur du cadre - Pas de housse de transport (compréhensible pour le prix)
Racket na 6 keer gebruiken op de steel afgebroken:S Vervolgens cynisch te woord gestaan door de 'squash-expert van de betreffende winkel'; deze breuk is onmogelijk en het racket kan zodoende niet worden teruggenomen. Racket 1 ster, service -4 sterren

This carbon fibre, originally designed in Japan, is one of the stiffest on the market and offers an excellent weight to stiffness ratio.This stiff fibre confers power and stability to the racket head.
The aerodynamic shaft on the SR 960 Opfeel Control offers improved racket penetration for more speed and power.
Made of independent double grommets and a perforated bumper, this concept lightens the racket head for greater ease of handling.
The elastomeric polyurethane gives this grip the best balance between tackiness and absorption for a great feel.
The frame weight (unstrung and without bumpers and grip) is only 125g, making this the perfect racket for an advanced player looking for control and ease of handling.You also get good power for pushing your opponent to the back of the court.This racket's features enable advanced players to improve their feel and performance.
Its 350 mm (neutral) balance makes it very easy to handle so that you can accelerate play while retaining control.
The traditional frame will be popular with fans of so-called "closed throat" rackets. The large 470 cm² head lets you get away with slightly off-centre shots.
The string pattern has been designed to give intermediate players power and accuracy.The cords are tightly spaced at the middle for better control and a superior ball touch, especially in terms of cushioning impacts.
This sporty racket is a perfect ally for intermediate players looking for control.
