Speed demon and powerhouse squash racket from Xamsa Rackets. This is the direct replacement for the Xamsa FBO frame that was one of the most powerful rackets in the world. The new racket has a diamond cutting edge that makes the swing speed even faster, and thus producing even more power. In order to take that down just a notch, to get some control into the frame, Xamsa has made a slightly denser string pattern in the sweetspot and stiffened up the frame. All in all this is a beast of a racket, but if you have the skills it can produce good control too.
Check out what Pierre has to say about the racket:
A powerfull and forgiving racket with a big sweetspot. Works well at every part of the game with no real weakness. It is relatively lightweight, although doesn't feel as light as the Obsidian incognito. The frame is also a lot stiffer than the Obsidian incognito, and gives more power from the back of the court. I have it strung with Powernick 1,15mm at 13kg which seems to work well, giving a combination of good power and feel. All in all a great racket that suits every aspect of the game.
This was my first squash racket purchase after joining Western's squash club this year although I was able to try out 4 or 5 rackets at club night before buying my own so I had some context.
I ended up going with this racket at the suggestion of the OfCourts staff in addition to my own online research and I'm extremely happy with it. As a novice player I find it to be an awesome mixture of forgiving and powerful relative to some other heads and technifibres I tried on club night and after playing about 10 games with the Onyx. It's also nice that they come strung with some decent quality strings that you don't feel like cutting out and replacing like almost any other racket in this price range.
I see no reason why this wouldn't also be good for better players but especially for beginners this racket will definitely help you develop a lot of power on good strikes and not penalize you as much for slightly mishit shots relative to some other options in this price range.
