All racquets are consistently excellent with the same weight and balance for the whole batch thanks to prepreg technology.
The mold is exactly the same as the original Onyx racquet model, but the construction is not. It utilizes the same technology as the “Incognito series” racquets which are made of 100% Toray Japan carbon fiber with 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.
A few words about this project from Tim, Xamsa Squash co-founder:
“My Xamsa partner Peter and I are both immigrants. We came here by choice, but coming is one thing, making it your home is what makes the whole difference. We don’t take it for granted and we truly appreciate all that is being done for us: the support, the sense of community, the warmth and compassion, to name a few.
Without getting too emotional, we just want to celebrate our beautiful country and I personally would like to pay tribute to Montréal, the city that accepted me in 2003 when I first came to Canada and became my true home.
And for this exceptional occasion, we are stepping out of our classic all black design to bring you two limited edition racquets with a stunning Red Chrome Metallic paint job: “O Canada” (200 units) and “Vive Montréal” (100 units).
Believe it or not, but the most time consuming task was to find a “Beaver” that would look nice with the squash ball and the recognizable Montréal symbol. With the help of the local squash community and long time Xamsa Squash ambassador Vadim di Pietro, we finally found what we were looking for and hopefully, it will make you smile”

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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
