Xamsa Onyx Squash Racquet Strung

Regular price $120.00 CAD Save $-120.00 CAD

Powerful teardrop shape.

This model is replacing the FBO 110.


The Onyx is a very forgiving racquet that is easy to use for a wide range of players, from beginner-to- intermediate. It's quite light but nevertheless, has a very solid feel on all shots. It has a lively response on volleys and, overall, produces consistent power on all shots.

      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.

      Excellent racquet for beginners

      I bought this racquet after reading a review on Squash Source as I wanted something lightweight and forgiving but which could give me a little more power as a beginner. This is perfect - I play much better and it looks fabulous too. All the players in my club admire the stylish, all black design. Highly recommended!

      Denis Morin (Timmins, CA)
      Great Racquet

      I'm new to squash and was looking for a light racquet with some power and that's what this racquet is. Bought it online, it was well packaged and shipping was fast. Thanks.

      Gerard De peralta (Surrey, CA)
      Great racket for the money.

      Very light, well balanced and rewarding when you hit the sweet spot. Absolutely love the way it looks as well!

      Paul DiStefano (Rochester, US)
      Onyx to the Rescue

      After trying the Onyx racquet that belonged to a fellow squash player, I thought it would be worth a try. The racquet was light, but powerful. And as I age, I seem to require more power. This racquet provided just that. I have used it about five times and so far, it has been excellent. I did not like the string it came with and had it restrung with power Nik at 24 pounds and it has improved my performance. Delivery and working with Tim was also delightful!

      Mike Facik (Rochester, US)
      Love this racquet

      The Onyx racquet has great balance and power. I have two because I string one racquet with 19 gauge string and it breaks frequently. The racquet feels light but hits with power and allows me to swing relaxed and drive the ball. Highly recommended.

      Awesome service!

      Initially, the rackets weren't exactly my favorite, but Tim was awesome in helping me work out exactly what I needed and now I'm happy with my Xamsa stuff. Customer service can't be beat!

      Andres (San José, CR)
      110% satisfied

      You guys go beyond a superb stringing service. I got great coaching from Tim on the optimum string for the racquet. Great job guys

      Ben (Meyrin, CH)
      Great Racquet!

      This racquet was exactly what I signed up for and more. Great power, lightweight, and ready to use right away. I added an overgrip wrap with no problems. Excellent value as well.

      Liam Fisher (Winnipeg, CA)
      Xamsa Onyx

      This was the second teardrop racquet I have ever played with and now I will never use anything else. The racquet feels very light but solid when hitting the ball and offers a lot more control than I expected. This is by far my new favourite racquet.
