2. Head Graphene 360+ Speed 120 Slimbody

So good it's used by the World no.1 Paul Coll!

  • Weight: 120g
  • Balance: Even

As used by the 2021 British Open Champion and new World No.1 (March 2022), Paul Coll, this racket is a rival to the Tecnifibre Carboflex Airshaft 125. It gets 10/10 for style too with its striking black and gold cosmetic. Squash Gear Reviews called it "one of the best looking squash rackets on the market today". The updated Graphene 360+ technology offers an enhanced feel over its predecessor and the improved frame design allows the strings to move more resulting in extra power. The Adaptive Fan Stringing Pattern also allows you to string for more power or more control (it comes strung for power from factory).

Reasons to buy: You want one of the best looking and highest performance squash rackets available for 2022!
Reasons not to buy: You're looking for an awesome racket but would prefer not to spend more than £100. Why not check out its brilliantly-priced predecessor the HEAD Graphene 360 120 Speed Slimbody instead?
