Perfect for players who value a powerful length game and accurate touch when taking into the front, the 2023 version of the renowned Head Speed 135 Squash Racquet is truly superb...
Weighing 135 grams, this racquet is on the heavier side, however, thanks to its head-light balance point, you can swing through the ball fast while getting that weight behind your shot, giving you power and speed at the same time! The Head Speed 135 has a thicker 20mm beam than its brother racquet (the 135 Slim Body), which helps add a bit of power and provides a slightly stiffer feel to the frame.
The 2023 Head Speed 135 also features Head's renowned Graphene 360+ Speed technology that gives users an incredibly clean feel on impact with the ball. It also comes strung with an open 12 x 17 string pattern that provides great levels of power, however, if you're looking for a little more control, it can be restrung with a more dense 16 x 17 pattern thanks to Head's innovative Adaptive Fan Pattern.
Head has also incorporated an X-tension groove into the upper part of the frame, allowing the strings to move more freely on contact with the ball to give players more power thanks to the trampoline effect! Lastly, this fresh 2023 design features a new design with smart metallic and earthy tones.
