It's here. After much anticipation and build-up, the infamous Tecnifibre Carboflex X-Top series has arrived at Control the 'T' Sports, and as expected, the game has been stepped up yet again...
Used by legendary squash players such as Mohamed ElShorbagy, Marwan ElShorbagy, Hania El Hammamy, and Nour El Sherbini, the Carboflex is one of the most popular racquets in squash, and the latest X-Top range sports a major update to the aerodynamics of the racquet...
The X-Top series also incorporates X-Arms and Airshaft technology, these innovations provide stability and precision at impact and make the racquet very aerodynamic and fast to play with. Tecnifibre has also removed the top plastic bumper removed and replaced it with Aramid fibers for even more racquet acceleration. "Extended String holes" also increase the elasticity of the strings, giving players access to deadly spin.
The 125 NS is the Nour El Sherbini version of this racquet, it has a slightly smaller grip circumference and a colourful new cosmetic. The 125 NS weighs 125 grams unstrung making it the lightest in the X-Top range, and also making it incredibly maneuverable, fast to play with and ideal for players with a shorter swing. Featuring a 14 x 18 string pattern, a teardrop frame shape, and a large 500cm2 head size, this racquet provides a great blend of control, power, and spin!
Tecnifibre Carboflex X-Top 125 NS Squash Racquet
Absolutely iconic, the Carboflex 125 NS X-TOP racket is one of the most common models on the Tour as it's used by the world's best players like Mohamed El Shorbagy. Top in performance, it's perfect for amateur and competitive players looking for the best combination of power and spin. Extremely light (125 g) for easy maneuverability and quick play. Maximum power with 500 cmÂ² head size and Dynamix V.P. multifilament strings, it's the most powerful in the Tecnifibre line. The racket shape was redesigned by the Airshaft section for better aerodynamics and head acceleration. The single shaft is reinforced on the two sides with X-Arms tendons to limit racket flexibility and provide stability and precision on impact. To increase spin and tolerance against off-centre shots, the Carboflex 125 X-TOP features "Extended String hole" technology: 12 eyelets at specific spots on the frame (at 3, 9 and 12 o'clock) have been enlarged to let the strings breathe and enhance their elasticity.
