We are excited to introduce the eXposed series, which will include Xamsa's most popular models with eyelets instead of bumper & grommet set.
By replacing the bumper & grommet set with eyelets, the racquet becomes on average 11 g lighter and 12 mm more headlight. This relatively simple customization makes the racquet significantly more maneuverable, faster, easier to swing, allows players to hold the shot for longer, and even makes it easier to hit tight balls off the side wall.
The feature does come with some downsides too. First, durability. A racquet without the top bumper isn’t as durable. The eXposed series is not covered by warranty so please be gentle if you decide to give it a try.
Second, some players may find that the racquet doesn’t have enough power and is less forgiving on off-center shots due to the light weight and balance.
We tested all Xamsa racquets, and with the help of our supporters, were able to pick two models to be included in the eXposed series for now: the PXT Incognito and the Crucible. It's possible that we will add other models in the future but more testing will need to be done first.
That being said, we can convert any racquet to eXposed. If you have a particular requirement, just drop us a line and we can possibly customize the racquet according to your exact specifications.
Note: The added cost of the eXposed series is due to the additional time it takes to manually replace the bumper & grommet set with individual eyelets before shipping your racquet from our Montreal shop.
