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.

Since there are many ways to measure the weight of a squash racket, we have specified the most commonly used standards.

  • Weight: 110 grams (frame only), 135 grams (frame and grommets), 155 grams (frame, grommets, strings and grip)

  • Balance: Neutral

  • Strings: Xamsa PM18, 18 gauge. Xamsa PM18 is constructed using a thousand microfilaments 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: 26-27lb

Because of our tendency towards lightweight rackets, we made the frames quite stiff using first grade carbon fibre 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. Give it a try with no risk involved as we have an unconditional 30-day money back guarantee on Xamsa rackets.

Solid powerful racquet - comparable to the Tecnifibre racquets I have played with in the past but more affordable

Wesley Oakes (Toronto, CA)

I love the brand, I love its products - the Xamsa FBO 110 is in a class of its own. You folks are awesome - thank you for doing what you do.

Amjad Farah (Toronto, CA)

Had this racquet for a few years now and it's one of the best balanced racquets i've ever used. definitely plays better than the $100 price tag suggests. i often pick it over other $200+ racquets. the weight is very nice for all skill levels. its very sturdy and took many hits to the walls without cracking.

XAMSA FBO 110 good performance average durability

I took a chance and bought the XAMSA FBO 110 when it first came out, and it had a good combination of balance, feel and power. It benefited greatly from an upgrade to Ashaway Ultranick 18 strings as well. However, it didn’t last very long, I had it for a few months and the racquet cracked through regular play.

Pranav Sharma, Club Atwater, Montreal, Quebec

I really enjoy playing with the Xamsa 135 gm teardrop. The weight and the balance I feel best fits my game. With a light head I feel I get more snap on the ball and this really helps with my attacking game and my front court game. Since the weight is really balanced, I feel more comfortable while executing volleys even while I am trying to volley from a defensive position. From back off the court, I can easily push the ball up and this helps me to get out of stress positions. Overall, I enjoy the touch that the racquet gives as well. I would continue to play with the model that I currently play with.

I went into Tim's new store looking for a decent well priced racket for my kid. He suggested the VBO 135 and I purchased it. I have been playing with a BK Quicksilver for many years and broke my last one and only had the VBO 135 in my bag. The first thing I noticed, that with the same effort I got significantly more power. Also the racket felt very similar to my previous racket so the switch over was very easy. This is an amazing racket at any price, and a great buy for $100.

Daniel Anisfeld, Club: University of Toronto Athletic Centre

I bought the VBO 135. It's a fantastic racquet, the best I've ever used. I'd been playing with a Technifibre Carboflex 125, and this racquet is superior in every way (and at about 60% of the price). Amazing control and huge sweet spot. Looks great too.

I broke my racquet and Tim was extremely fair in providing warranty coverage. It made me doubly happy that I ordered this racquet.

You can't go wrong with this racquet.

Philippe Roy, Club CDL, Montreal

After trying a demo a few times, I chose to play with Xamsa VBO 135 because I like the balance of the racket. All my life I’ve been playing with a very light racket.
Even though the racket is 135 grams, it feels much lighter than that. I feel the weight is toward the shaft instead of the head of the racket and that makes the shots more accurate.
