There are 3 key factors to consider when buying a squash racket:-

WEIGHT:

Most rackets weigh between 110 - 180 grams, with most players preferring a mid-weight racket of between 140-160 grams.

As a general rule the lighter the racket the more it will cost. Lighter rackets give more control.

Mid weight rackets offer a compromise between the control of a light weight racket and the power gained from using a heavyweight racket.

Heavyweight rackets offer more power but at the expense of control and are generally cheaper due to the use of less sophisticated materials.

BALANCE:

The racket will be either head light / mid balance / head heavy.

Head light rackets are not so popular as the other two as it is deemed

by many to be unnecessary.
