The Salming Cannone Feather Squash Racquet is aptly named. It is a light, powerful racquet designed for the attacking player.
Its finished weight of 141 grams is very light which makes it very maneuverable. To counter its light weight Salming have balanced it towards the head which really does help with power by getting more of its weight behind the ball.
With a lighter racquet you generate pace by being able to generate more racquet head speed. The Cannone Feather allows you to just that. It is also optimally balanced for power given its light weight by having a head heavy balance.
Its very thin beam gives it a bit of flex and great feel. The matte black finishes contrasted with the white highlights looks really sharp.
If you are the type of player that is looking for a powerful racquet that is very maneuverable the Salming Cannone Feather is just that.
