Here is video review of Xamsa Obsidian by Pierre from SquashSource:
I really like the racquet and really want to continue to like the racquet, but I am starting to question the durability of this one. I have had 2 now that have cracked across the face, each lasting only 30 days. I am not a crazy power hitter, and my game is good enough that I don't have bone crushing wall impacts, however I do play everyday. I hope a racquet should last more that 30-45 hours of play. Tim has been great and we are working through the problems.
Love the racquet, feels very comfortable and smooth. Xamsa provides exceptional customer service and went above and beyond to give me advice with selecting the right strings for the racquet.
The obsidian is a really solid choice for a bridged racquet. Good feel and good power for half the price of anything equivalent.
I've said it time and time again, the minute I tried a Xamsa I never looked back. It its a great balance of agility/finess and power. Its durability is also a huge selling point for me.
Would buy again!
string too soft and become lose real fast. head heavy as it is.
This racquet is beautiful. It feels very comfortable and balanced when I hold it. The all-black style is cool. And, I liked how they put an arrow at the bottom (people always ask me to spin for the first serve).
My squash mates tried it out and they liked it. One of them hit the ball for 2 minutes with it and bought it on the same day.
It is my top favorite or, at least, in the top 2 favorite racquets that I have used so far.
Met & exceeded expectations including service & speedy international delivery
