Description of the Racquet

For 2014 Head has decided to add to their #1 Selling Graphene line up frames launching the new Graphene Xenon 140. The Graphene Xenon 140 is a great frame for the player looking for both power and control. The 14x17 string pattern and elongated head shape offers additional power over the similarly shaped Graphene 130. The Graphene technology is the #1 selling technology at Squash Galaxy so we see no reason why this won't slide in and become another best seller very quickly.

What is Graphene exactly? Well Graphene is an ultra-light and ultra-strong substance which is 200 times stronger than steel. Head places Graphene in the shaft so that weight can be redistributed to more functionally relevant areas of the handle and tip. This unique construction provides players with increased swing weight for more power with less effort.

Our favorite Squash wrap grip is the Squash Galaxy Wrap Grip. We've been in the business a long time and always get requests on what our favorite wrap grip is for squash so we went out and made our own! The Squash Galaxy Wrap grip has a smooth and extremely tacky feel and is the appropriate length and size for any squash racquet on the market. It's only $8 to have it installed at the time of purchase.

The Tecnifibre 305 17g string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable then the Tecnifibre 305 17g string we suggest.At the time of purchase, the Tecnifibre 305 17g restring upgrade is $21.95. It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away. The tecnifibre will fray before it breaks and that's completely normal so don't worry about it!

If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Silencer (Our favorite), Head Smart Sorb, Head Megasorb, or the BBB (Big Bad Band).

A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?" It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet. Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper. For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!

We recommend an overgrip for players that tend a sweat a lot, want to build up a grip, or wear through wrap grips very often. An overgrip is thinner and wears quicker than re-grips, but can be changed much quicker and easier than a re-grip. We recommend the Wilson Pro Overgrip, but for those looking for the best sweat absorption, durability, and feel... the Overgrip/ Re-grip gives the best combination. Note** when an overgrip is installed, you will not be able to see the re-grip if chose to have it installed.

We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet.

Technology

Graphene

New for 2013 - Discovered in 2004, Graphene consists of a single two-dimensional layer of carbon atoms. This material has a breaking strength 200 times greater than steel, which makes it the ultimate substance for creating new HEAD squash racquet frames with exceptional properties. Graphene technology allows for the first time an optimal redistribution of weight in HEAD racquets. Through the use of Graphene in the shaft, the weight in the middle part of the squash racquet can be reduced. Instead, weight can be shifted to more functionally relevant areas in the grip and racquet head. This unique construction provides players with an unmatched maneuverability and an increased swingweight. In other words, a racquet with Graphene is easier to swing and enables even more powerful shots. And it will give opponents a really hard time.

This video is for Graphene Tennis Racquets but the use of Graphene for Squash Racquets is the same.



d3o - (dee-three-oh)

HEAD's d3o Technology is a specially engineered material made with intelligent molecules. The molecules flow as the racquet moves but on shock lock together to absorb the impact energy

d3o belongs to the "smart materials" category and is a futuristic material with abnormal behavior characteristics. More specifically d3o changes its behavior under dynamic loading or impact. Integrated in the lay-up and positioned in the shaft area where the racquet flexes the most, d3o maximizes performance and offers new possibilities for players.

d3o is able to sense the needs of the players during different strokes. It's able to adapt to YOU. On high speed impacts (aggressive shots), the smart molecules lock together within nano seconds and dramatically increase the stiffness of the racquet to provide maximum power. On slow speed impacts, the smart molecules absorb the impact to provide a softer touch for better feel. What does this mean to a squash player? Passing shots are even harder and drop shots have more precision rewarding your spontaneity and supporting your courageous decisions.



Corrugated Technology

HEAD's Corrugated Technology is a revolutionary new shaft design that optimizes power, torsion, bending and handling on every stroke.

Corrugated Technology

How Does it Work?

Corrugated rails are incorporated into the shaft of the racquet creating up to 12% more stiffness than conventional design.
