Weight, stiffness, and balance are three crucial parameters influencing a squash racket's characteristics.
It is in the range of 115-170 grams on current models. The expensive rackets are usually lighter as more advanced materials are required to manufacture them. Therefore, racquets weighing 150-170 grams are generally a little cheaper. A lighter racket offers more feel, flexibility, and maneuverability and mainly aims at skilled players who can generate speed. Exercisers can often perceive lightweight rackets as unstable, so it's not a bad idea for them to opt for a slightly heavier racket that also offers more speed access.
The stiffness of the racket significantly affects its target audience. A stiffer racket usually suits skilled players in terms of control and speed in the game. Experienced players can generally generate the necessary speed in the swing themselves, and a stiff racket will give them the stability and feel of the game they are looking for. It is easier to control a softer racket, making this type of racket primarily suitable for recreational players.
In addition to the racket's weight, balance affects its playing characteristics. There are three classifications of balance; Head Heavy, Head Light, and Even where the weight is even across the racket. A Head Heavy squash racket gives better ball speed, which is ideal for hard-hitting players. The disadvantage of this type of racket is that it can feel slow and difficult to maneuver. If you are a player who prefers a flexible racket for fast play, it is a better choice to buy a racket with a lower balance.
