    Product feature
    1. Technology: 6061 aluminium
      Thanks to its aluminium/graphite structure (6061 aluminium on the head and graphite on the shaft and handle), this racket is extremely resistant to impacts.
    2. Technology: Carbon Power Shaft
      The ARTENGO SR160 shaft is reinforced for more power than you'd get with a classic racket.
    3. Technology: High Protection Bumper
      The bumper has also been designed for greater resistance to impacts with squash court walls (High Protection Bumper technology) which extends the racket's lifespan.
    4. Weight = 165 g (unstrung)
      At 165 g (unstrung), this racket provides excellent power so that you can push your opponent to the back of the court. The weight of the racket's frame (without strings, bumper or grip) is only 150 g, making it nice and light for beginner players. This racket's characteristics let novices make rapid progress without having to upgrade their equipment too quickly.
    5. Balance = 360 mm (unstrung)
      Its 360 mm balance (slightly head-heavy) also makes it very powerful.
    6. Head size = 500 cm²
      The 500 cm² head size lets you get away with slightly off-centre shots. Because the head is longer, the strings are also longer which creates power for beginner players.
    7. String pattern = 14 x 16
      The open string pattern has been designed to give beginner players power and forgiveness. As a result of the wide gaps between strings, the head is more flexible and therefore more powerful and able to tolerate off-centre shots.

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Used the racquet a handful of times. Early on a small split appeared on the handle, no big deal I thought. Couple more uses and a whole side split.
