Xamsa Obsidian Incognito eXposed is officially a head light racquet!

135 g / 342 mm balance. You may ask what is so unique about it?

Well, since there is no industry standard, the term "head light" is often misused. The racquet length is 686 mm so the even balance point is 343 mm. In theory, if the number is higher than 343, the racquet is head heavy and if the number is lower, the racquet is head light. That being said, we have measured hundreds of different brand racquets (strung) and all of them had a balance point of more than 343 mm (head heavy by definition). Some long time ago, we tried to make a Xamsa racquet with a head light balance but the racquet turned out to be unplayable - too weak on off-center shots and was lacking power big time. At that point, we decided to put this idea aside but kept thinking that, perhaps, in the future, we would be able to come up with the model that would be exceptionally maneuverable and relatively stable at the same time. Not sure this is the moment but it seems we are not too far from it.

When I first tried it in a solo practice, I didn't like it either as I couldn't achieve a consistent length and had to force every shot to make it to the back of the court but my perspective has changed once I started using it in a real game. It's just so light and maneuverable that I quickly learnt how to generate enough swing speed to get the ball to the back of the court and what a touch it has on drop shots! You literally feel when the ball touches the strings and all it takes is to direct it to the right spot. Well, it goes without saying that you have to be steady and in the right position to do the drop shot in the first place.

It's not for everyone but I am confident that there will be squash players who will enjoy it as much as I do.

      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.
