Furthermore, many high end racquets are often fragile as playability is prioritized over durability.
If you are not an advanced player, you may tend to hit the wall a bit too hard for the racquet to last long enough.
Durability was our main focus for the Duro 120.
That being said, the racquet plays very well too. It feels solid, doesn’t vibrate and generates a good amount of power.
Hopefully, you will give Xamsa a try and will see for yourself that low price doesn’t always mean low quality.

Xamsa Men's Shorts Grey with logo
Great demo program! I demoed the Onyx series racquets. Love the punch and control these racquets provide. I couldn’t make up my mind between the two, so I kept them both.
Initially, the rackets weren't exactly my favorite, but Tim was awesome in helping me work out exactly what I needed and now I'm happy with my Xamsa stuff. Customer service can't be beat!
10/10 would buy again
It is a very good bag. Holds all i need for a trip to the court. I particularly like the subdued branding. I am not a big fan of flashy branding. I also like the backpack straps. However, there are extra strap and buckles that i cant figure out what to do with. I would be nice to have instructions.
