    Plus: Amazing rackets. Power and lots of feel. Some of the nicest rackets I've owned in 30yrs of playing. Negative: So fragile - a manufacturing defect I suspect. I've been through 10+ in the last 3 years. I had four at the start of the year and they were all broken at 12 o'clock before the end of the summer. Unacceptable at this price point. I hope this is corrected in the next lot when they are restocked in the UK later this year.

    Fantastic racket to play with but breaks too easily. I bought 3 of these since the beginning of 2016 and they have all broken at 12 o'clock. 1 of them broke when using for the first time during a warm up with no wall contact. Unsure what causes this, perhaps they cannot take a restring. Possibly a known issue with the spark?

    Why would you not want this you get a very rare combination that I have never got from any racket, more powerful than the carboflex and head teardrop and classic and more control than anything! John sure does know how to play and even better how to design a racket

    This is the best racquet I've ever used. I had been using the Prince teardrop shape for years, lastly with the Prince O3 Tour, before changing to Dunlop Aerogel Ultimate (4D and non-4D versions) last year. I was looking for a more even-weighted racquet which had more control than the Princes, even if less power. This was an attempt to change my game up a level and it worked, particularly to get the head up and develop a more attacking/volleying game. However, I increasingly felt that the Dunlops were very stiff and lacked feel. Stringing tight with Technifibre Green increased that to the point where I even began to get some elbow pain. I looked around for alternatives and found some good reviews of the Harrow Vibe and Spark. I particularly liked the idea of the Custom Spark being even-weighted (a bit like the JP version of the old Dunlop ICE Elite). My coach is using the ordinary Spark and I order the Custom model from Paul here and have now bought a second one from him. Although rated as even, there is enough weight in the head that you know what you're swinging at. Like all traditional-shaped racquets when you don't hit the sweet-spot you know about it, but the feedback when you do get it right is superb with this racquet. There is plenty of power available if you swing through the shot and because you can get the head up quickly, you get more time and therefore power on a shot than you might expect. Touch on the drops is very rewarding and the more you concentrate and control the direction of the shot the more the racquet will pay you back. Durability of the frame is fine; I'm not that gentle on the racquets and these are holding up well. The Ashway strings are better than most factory stringing, with the first racquet coming more loosely strung than the second. They aren't the most feely strings though and my first set snapped after 3-4 months. I'm now playing with one racquet using Technifibre Green (1.2 gauge) and one with the Ashway, which is gradually losing tension. The Technifibre really improves the control without sacrificing power; it plays to the racquet's strengths so your errors are definitely your own, but if you get it right you get rewarded. Happy hitting...

    I ve used lots of rackets since i started to play squash, from Dunlop to Wilson, Prince, Tecnifibre until one day my coach asked me to try this Harrow Custom Spark by Jonathan Power. I'm quite amazed by the control and precision generated by this racket. With the combination of weight of 135 grams and the head balance of 37.5 cm you will feel like you actually dont hold a racket in your hand. once you play this racket, you will definitely not try any other rackets. This racket really gives me consistency for any shots(especially my serve) and totally have improved my games a lot. It really rocks my squash!

    This is a fantastic racket. Comparing it to similar rackets like the Dunlop Pro GT-X and the Tecnifibre NG 130, the Harrow Spark is much ligher but it also packs a lot more of a punch. The power you get from this racket is similar to the most powerful tear-shaped rackets, like the Prince EXO3 but with the egg-shaped head you will get more control.rnrnLike with any very light racket you need to know what you're doing in your swing because it doesn't give you much help in your technique. You can basically use it as a fly swatter, Ramy-style, which most likely only works for The Artist himself. But if you feel confident in your swing, know what you're doing on the court and like the egg-shaped racket heads, it doesn't get any better than this racket.rnrnAlso, the fact that the racket is designed by one of the very best players of all time -- Jonathon Power -- doesn't hurt either. :)
