Discover the Limited Edition of the Dunlop Sonic Core Elite by Gregory Gaultier in a specially designed cosmetic.
The conventional head shape gives you great control, while the larger head size packs more power. All thanks to a 14x18 string pattern. This is what power looks like.
The new Sonic Core series is constructed with BASF's Infinergy® - a super-elastic material that has the added benefit of being very light, which is perfect for the demands of the modern player. Located in the 2 and 10 o'clock zones of the racquet frame, this foam absorbs shock and reduces frame vibration by up to 37%, resulting in a more comfortable hitting feel and reduced risk of injury. When Infinergy® foam is combined with the Sonic Core frame, the result is faster racquet ball speeds for more aggressive hitting.
Heavier to support your shots with strength and balance in the handle, the Sonic Core GG Elite 135 is extremely maneuverable and stable and provides easy ball control with a 14x18 string pattern.
- Sonic Core with Infinergy (made by BASF): integrated at 2h and 10h on the frame of the racket, the Infinergy foam has impressive damping and vibration reduction properties unlike a Dunlop carbon racket. Infinergy® foam developed by BASF, the world's first E-TPU, has significantly better rebound properties than other materials such as EPP, EVA and EPE. The material's rebound tests show a 46% increase in rebound height over the original Sonic Core material.
- Hybrid Cross Section: Gain power without losing control! The oval cross section in the head of the racquet and the stability and comfort of a rectangular shaft section provide power and control.
- CX Grommets: Don't let the ball go by! Serrated grommets and a more aerodynamic cross-section increase racquet head speed and maneuverability.
- Glide Polymer: Micro-beads in this polymer reduce friction and promote string movement for more power. Glidepolymer improves string strength and durability. Play smoothly!
- AeroProfile: Split the air faster and hit harder. Technical improvements make the frame cross-section 9% smaller, giving you an advantage.

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 Python Atlas Deluxe 18g (Black) string upgrade (+$25) is recommended at the time of purchase because the factory string generally has lesser playability and durability qualities and often strung too tight. After years of play-testing and selling strings in squash and racquetball we feel we can finally recommend a string to our customer base that not only offers great durability, but backs that up with a great feel and play. The Python Atlas Deluxe is a soft, multifilament string that will gradually fray through the life cycle of the string.(This is completely normal, so don’t worry about it. It will fray down to the very last fibers) For players looking for added “feel”, try the Atlas Deluxe in an 18g which is thinner and more responsive and for those who like a little "stiffer" string, try Tecnifibre 305 Green 17g which is still a multifilament or those who like a textured string that does not fray, try the Ashaway PowerNick 18g String.
If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Python Vibration Dampner (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 SquashGalaxy Black Overgrip or SquashGalaxy White 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.
If you want the best cover on the market buy the SquashGalaxy Full Racquet Cover. It has a full outside pocket, a handle strap and a large shoulder strap as well as a ventilated pocket to let your grip breathe and best of all its $2 less than the others because we want to help you by supporting our company! The charge will only be $8.00 when added to the cart for this choice instead of $10.00 like the other covers.

Sonic Core - Made with Infinergy from BASF
Located in the 2 and 10 o'clock area of the racket
In addition to superior rebound properties the Infinergy material also has impressive dampening properties and reduces vibrations versus a standard carbon fibre Dunlop racket.
Sonic Core rackets have been developed to offer excellent racquet head stability and enhanced comfort, allowing players to dictate the pace of rallies with pin point accuracy and consistency.

Hybrid Cross Section: Hybrid power properties of an oval cross section in the head with the stability and comfort of a box section in the shaft portion of the racquet helps provide more power than previous models without loss of control.
CX Grommets: Pocketed grommets and a more aerodynamic cross section in the racquet hoop make the new geometries more aerodynamic than previous models helping to increase racquet head speed.
Reduces Friction - Unique polymer contains micro beads of MOS2 mineral that reduces friction interaction between grommet and string by up to 27% allowing greater string movement for enhanced power. Increased Durability - Glide polymer also reinforces the polymer matrix increasing durability and grommet life by up to 40%.
