Complete product line of Xamsa Squash Racquets.
Probably the best racquet I ever had, even though I usually prefer traditional head shapes. I felt like I had more control and more power compared to my old Harrow Vapor, my previous favourite racquet. The racquet is very stiff, and I would not recommend to someone who likes to make use of flick shots frequently. Volleying feels excellent and the ball just pops right off without having to exert power. The ball seems to go exactly where I want it to go, especially for drop shots. I had no problem at all generating power with the racquet, even from awkward positions. I would recommend this racquet to players who favour control over power, especially those who like to volley and play very precise drop shots. I would not recommend this racquet to the pure power-player. I wanted to give this racquet 5 stars, but...
Regrettably, after only 3,5 weeks of use (about 8 times playing), I broke it after making contact with the wall with the racquet, attempting to play a boast. Admittedly, it was a pretty hard hit to the wall. Still, I think most other racquets would have survived the impact. I had been very careful with it prior to this incident. It is really sad, as I was really starting to feel the racquet and had become adapted to the non-conventional head shape. Of course, this can happen in a game like squash.
I still would like to try other Xamsa racquets now, such as the Obsidian, as I liked the racquet very much; but considering the total price (racquet+shipping to the Netherlands) I may just use my old racquet for now.
Really surprised how good the racket was, lightweight and fast but solid and powerful, great racket, not sending it back !
It was as expected. Would have gave 5 star but the grip wasn’t wrapped super well. Some seams exposed the plastic
Did some pretty thorough research when it came time to get a new racquet and decided to give Xamsa Obsidian Incognito a try. I’ve played with tear drop racquets for years, so this - and my unfamiliarity with Xamsa - was going out on a limb for me. Have had it now for just over 2 months and have been very impressed with the construction quality, play feel and durabaility (knocked the wall/glass a few times accidentally!). And I had a slight concern about my racquet early on, so I emailed Xamsa - they responded next day and assured me of no issue but to get back in touch if it turned into a problem. So, great customer service too (and no issue has arisen with the racquet). The racquet also turns heads and illicit slots of questions on court!
For the cost savings, quality and design and costumer service, would highly recommend.
I received the racquet when expected and have used it several times since. I love the playability of the racquet. I experienced one issue with the plug at the end of the handle coming loose but Tim was quick to assist me on a personal phone call.
