We are happy to announce a new addition to the “Incognito series”, the Crucible Incognito, set for release around mid January 2020.

The mold is exactly the same as the original Crucible which was released in 2018, but the construction is not.
All racquets in the “Incognito series” are made of 100% Toray Japan carbon fiber using prepreg technology.
Prepreg is a composite material in which a reinforcement fiber is pre-impregnated with resin in a specific ratio. This allows for direct laying into a mold without having to add resin. Every racquet has the same ratio of resin with no excess or dry spots. Uniform thickness allows for all racquets to be almost identical, with the same weight and balance as per advertised specifications.

The racquet shape has proven its success over the years and is still actively offered by many brands around the world. Some players call it “hybrid” as it's not exactly a “bridged” racquet like the Xamsa Obsidian, and it's not a teardrop racquet like the Xamsa PXT.

The original Crucible is considered an almost flawless racquet by many Xamsa supporters and, based on the feedback we received, the only room for improvement was the maneuverability.
The prepreg technology allows racquets to be made lighter and more powerful without compromising control. We made a few prototypes with different weights and balances, and had our supporters test them. A strung weight/balance of 145 g / 355 mm proved to be the winner and in September 2019 we placed a factory order for the first 300 Crucible Incognito racquets.

The Crucible Incognito is 10 g lighter and 10 mm more head light than the original Crucible.

Let’s see if it becomes a truly flawless racquet!

      Dear fellow squash players, my name is Tim Burganov and I will be taking care of warranty issues. The following is information about the Xamsa Warranty Program. If you have any concerns after reading, please send me an email and I will get back to you shortly.

      The idea behind creating Xamsa Squash is to promote squash and to offer high quality racquets at fair prices. We do our best to avoid any manufacturing defect however if there is a problem, we are here to resolve it. Due to relatively high cost compared to selling price, we cannot afford a no-fault warranty program.

      You are the only person who knows exactly what happened to your racquet therefore we leave it up to you to decide.

      If your racquet broke within 30 days of purchase, we kindly ask you to assess the damage and choose one of the following options:

      1. Manufacturing defect. If you believe that your racket broke due to manufacturing defect, please let me know and I will arrange for a replacement at no charge.
      2. Contributed damage. If you do not think it was a manufacturing defect, but believe the racquet was nonetheless a little too fragile, let's meet half way. We will be happy to sell you a new racket with 50% discount.
      3. Significant impact with the wall causing the racket to break. This is not a warranty case however we understand how frustrating it can be to break a racquet so quickly. We will gladly give you a 25% discount if you would like to buy a new racquet.

      Please note: the custom stringing is not covered by warranty. There is a $15 shipping fee for the replacement racquet (Canada and the US). For other countries, the shipping fee will depend on your location. To avoid the shipping expenses for the replacement racquet, you can buy any racquet and we will enclose a replacement racquet at no extra shipping fee. If we need the broken racquet back, we will let you know and will provide a pre-paid return shipping label.

      If your racquet broke after 30 days of purchase but you only played with it a couple of times, please don't hesitate to contact me directly. Please rest assured that we will find a satisfactory solution.

      Fantastic racquet

      I purchased this racquet recently, and have been very happy with it, winning my last 4 intercity squash matches. It has great power, feel and touch. The stringing was done exactly as asked for, and the overgrip is perfect. For the price I cannot imagine a better racquet for the price.

      Great but not very durable

      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.

      Here is the link to the full match:

      I discussed the issue with Olivier. It so happened Olivier had a video of his match and agreed to upload it for others to see. Thank you! It's hard to tell. The impact with the wall was quite significant. The glass wall is particularly brutal as it's a much stiffer material. We tested this model thoroughly and it didn't appear to be fragile at all. Anyway, let's give it another try. Olivier was kind enough to pay 50% for a warranty replacement. Hopefully, a new racquet will serve you well and long! Please keep us posted.
