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.
This 130-gram version of the racquet is the perfect midweight option in the X-Top range, making it maneuverable and fast to play with, but also allows players to get a bit of extra power behind the ball from both big and small swing styles. 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!
