The 2022 Dunlop Sonic Core Evolution 130 racquet features a hybrid head shape gives you the optimum blend of power and control. Long main strings for power and hybrid throat section for control.
The new Sonic Core CONTROL series is made up of five premium performance rackets. With modern, sleek designs and a choice of either a conventional or hybrid head shape, the series features the lead technology ‘Sonic Core made with Infinergy® by BASF’, which provides great control whilst reducing vibrations and ensuring enhanced all-round performance. The big sweet spot that this technology creates gives players the desired feeling of constantly hitting the sweet spot, even on off-centre shots.
The rackets are boosted by the ‘Flex Touch Resin’ technology comfort and rebound properties, providing players with increased racket control and touch to bring control to their game.
"The Sonic Core CONTROL series is a testament to the rigorous research and testing by Dunlop Srixon engineers in Japan," says Ken Yamamoto, Head of Racket Sports Business for SRI. "The result is an eye-catching, premium range of rackets that demonstrate enhanced all-round performance, channelled by the Sonic Core technology."

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.

Engineering advances in the layup allow for a sharper leading edge up to 9% smaller cross section in hoop allowing the beam to cut through the air faster with more elastic power than conventional beams.
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%.
