Xamsa PNT 110 (former CNT 135) Squash Racquet Strung
- In stock, ready to ship

Some players prefer bridged rackets while others rather a teardrop shape. It's a matter of personal preference. There are many arguments defending both types of rackets.
Typically though, lightweight teardrop rackets are considered best suited for an attacking style of play while bridged rackets are more popular among players seeking increased control or finesse.
- Net weight: 110 grams (frame only),
- Full weight: 155 grams (frame, grommets, strings and grip)
- Frame Surface area: 493 cm2
Balance: 365 mm +/- 5 mm
Strings: Xamsa PM 18, 18 gauge. Xamsa PM 18 is constructed using a thousand multifilaments as a center core then wrapped in braided fibers. The rough surface and resistance gives good control of the ball, and the elastic coating provides extra power.
Tension: 26-27 lb
Because of our tendency towards lightweight racquets, we made the frames quite stiff using high quality carbon fiber for added durability. We tried to achieve a perfect blend of power and agility with no traces of vibration. With a net frame weight of only 110 grams, the power and control will surprise most players.

I have been a big fan of the Xamsa brand and in particular the PNT 110. It was my regular go to racket in all type of scenarios be it training or matches. The one thing that is amazing about the racket is the balance and the strings combination. I think Xamsa has done an exceptional job with the racket. I would recommend that they add a little bit more weight (+5 gms) to the racket so that it can be catered to more individuals while keeping the balance as it is. I really applaud the message of the team as well and their zeal for the sport.
Very pleased with racquets. My grandson and I both use them. I will probably go for a lighter feel racquet next time. Great value for money!
Relatively new to the game, but I went through a couple of sale rackets from a retail shop. The Xamsa PNT 110 is great. Has terrific touch. Couldn't be happier. Price is reasonable for such a quality racket.
Great racquet, having been using them for years.
I'd recommend any day.
Wasn’t very Durable
Very good racket at an affordable price
The CNT135 is really well balanced, I enjoy its playability as well as its power. There is no vibration which is a big plus. The grip is perfect. With Xamsa philosophy to encourage squash players of all levels, the racquet is extremely affordable and a must own!
I am Reiko Peter currently no. 88 in the world and I just recently changed to the Xamsa Racket. I have played a smaller head size for quite a long time and I wanted to try a bigger head size for quite some time. I was not very happy with most of the rackets I tested. Because most of the times they felt too heavy or not as accurate when I was hitting the ball.
When I tried the CNT 135 for the first time I immediately liked it a lot because the bigger head size is a lot more ‘forgiving’, if you don’t hit the ball exactly in the middle.
I don’t really like that the grip of the Racket is short. I have quite big hands and think the grip of the Racket should go further up. I had quite some time to get used to it. Now I am fine with it though.
My favorite things about the Xamsa Rackets are the weight and the balance. It feels so light but it still has some weight to gain power in your strike. I have a lot of touch with it because of these two things.
Since I have been using the Racket I climbed to world ranking better than ever… I guess that has to mean something :D
I've been known to take squash "too seriously". I would never sacrifice even 1% of racket quality, even if you paid me. I'm also not a big fan of change, and had been playing with the same top brand racket for 10 years. So I was a bit reluctant to try out Xamsa, especially given its low price, which I assumed meant it must be lower quality. But I decided to have a hit with it (CNT 135), just out of curiosity. At first it felt ok, but it wasn't identical to my previous racket, so it felt a bit off. But after about an hour of solo drill I really started to like it. I decided to try it out in a match. Long story short, it felt great and I've been a loyal Xamsa user for a month now. Strongly recommend.

I’ve been playing with the Xamsa CNT 135 for about two weeks. I’ve already won a tournament with it!! I really like the feel of the racquet. I have small hands and the grip is smaller than what I use to play with (Black Knight). I have great control and have very accurate shots. I would recommend this racquet for anybody who wants to have greater control with his shots. There’s also the price. You have a high end racquet for the fraction of the price (100 CAD). Overall I am very satisfied and will continue to choose Xamsa as my weapon of choice. Watch out!
