For the 2015/2016 squash season, Dunlop has advanced on their popular hybrid style frame with the release of the Force Evolution series. Available in the 120g and 130g weights… the Force Evolution offers a weight for any player. Dunlop has developed several new technologies for the new Force series.. including “Hyperfiber” and “Parallel Strung”.. creating the most powerful and responsive hybrid frame style to date. If you are looking for an “all around” racquet to fit in your game style, the Force Evolution is the frame for you.
Starting in 2013 Dunlop DOES NOT supply a cover with their racquets.
Racquet Covers - SquashGalaxy Cover is Only $8.00
A full racquet cover is NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option of adding a full cover for $8 if you would like. See below for more details.

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.

Bang for the Buck $$$$
All aspects of the new force series have been engineered to promote faster racket head speed and ball acceleration, coupled with some new technology enhancements to ensure all potential energy is converted into power.
Ultra fast skin - Engineered surface texture mimicking shark skin which smooth’s airflow and reduces drag by up to 35% over non-textured surfaces.
Ballistic fibres increase racket stiffness for greater power in the hitting zone, whilst improving resilience for higher durability.
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%.
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 racket helps provide more power than previous models without loss of control.
Straight = Fast - Grommet holes, pegs and string are in exact alignment across the main hitting area, this allows for greater string moment and response. This increases the sweet spot size for more power, more spin and more forgiving feel
The conical tapered shaft delivers outstanding racket resilience and enhances overall racket stiffness. This powerful combination gives the shaft greater energy return on impact for increased whipping power.
