Product feature
  1. Technology: HIGH MODULUS CARBON
    This carbon fibre, originally designed in Japan, is one of the stiffest on the market and offers an excellent weight-to-stiffness ratio. This stiff fibre confers power and stability to the racket head.
  2. Technology: Tapered Power Shaft
    The ARTENGO SR960's tapered, reinforced shaft generates additional power compared with a traditional shaft.
  3. Technology: Tacky Grip
    The elastomeric polyurethane gives this grip the best balance between tackiness and absorption for a great feel.
  4. Weight = 145 g (unstrung)
    At 145 g (unstrung), your swing will be accelerated meaning that you can transfer this speed to the ball. The weight of the racket's frame (without strings, bumper or grip) is only 120 g, making it nice and light for expert players. This racket's features enable expert players to continue progressing.
  5. Balance = 360 mm (unstrung)
    The head-heavy balance (360 mm) generates power.
  6. Head size = 499 cm²
    The 499 cm² head creates a racket that makes up for centring errors. The entire racket is therefore more forgiving. Because the head is longer, the strings are also longer so that the ARTENGO SR960 has more power - perfect for expert players.
  7. String pattern = 14 x 17
    The string pattern has been designed to give expert players power and control. The strings have been tightened for additional control.
  8. Design and look
    This aggressive racket is the ideal partner for expert players looking for power and speed.

    Have trialled this racket at Northern Crosby Squash Club. Decathlon very kindly provided us with some test rackets for members to try. Have used it for 1 complete match. The racket is well balanced and offers good power while retaining good feel and control of the ball. Other members will be writing their reviews when they have trialled it.

    The racquet made it very easy to hit boast shots, though you don’t get as good feel of the ball
  • SR 960 Power unleashed

    I have been using the Artengo SR 960 racquet for a few weeks. I was looking for a little extra power in my shots especially for driving the ball into the back corners. The SR 960 racquet carries a bit more of it's weight in the head of the racquet, which means once you get the head moving in really provides some real power behind it when you strike the ball. The overall weight of the racquet helped me put a little extra 'spice' on my shots, catching my opponents by surprise as I have never been known for hitting the ball very hard. As with all the Artengo racquets I have owned the quality of the materials and manufacturing are fantastic. It also feels like the strings may be strung a little tighter than other factory standard models i have used which also helped improve my power game. It only took a couple of games to adjust my feel for 'drop shots' and I am really enjoying the results. This racquet is probably more suited for the experienced player but having said that a regular player of any standard will really enjoy the feel of this racquet.
  • Enjoying it!

    Prefacing this as an intermediate player, about 135-145 matrix.

    This is a head heavy racquet which needs to be said in the description! I have only played with balanced racquets so this took a while to get used to! But I think this is an attribute of HH rather than the racquet itself since I find it bit tougher to generate racquet head speed

    Focusing on getting racquet earlier, I found this racquet very enjoyable to play with. High accuracy but bit slow on the volley (due to HH). Power is improving as the strings get broken in (bit tight at the start). This has become my regular racquet since I really enjoy the accuracy and digging out of the corners but I have to really move it for the volleys

    One of the best features is the handle and the grip. Very very comfortable and its a roundish handle similar to technifibe (i'm not a fan of the rectangle handle of my Head racquets so YMMV depending on what you like). Feedback from striking is comfortable. At this price point, I think it's fantastic.
