Get the most out of yourself with the Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 Airshaft. If you are looking for a racket with a lot of power and as well as agility, then this is your choice. Because the frame is 5 grams heavier than that of the top model, the Tecnifibre Carboflex 125 Airshaft, it is a lot easier to control. You lose a little bit of racket acceleration but to compensate you can handle the racket easily and play those trick shots which put your opponent under pressure. On the PSA tour the Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 Airshaft is used by the Egyptian top player Marwan El Shorbagy, who is a real crowd favorite due to his attacking playing style.
What is immediately noticeable about the Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 Airshaft is that the upper part of the shaft has even better aerodynamics. During a swing you can generate more racket acceleration and it is easy to hit the ball hard. You can also prepare your shot more quickly and hit earlier, giving your opponent less time to return to the T zone. Because of the larger openings of the grommets in certain places in the frame, the string bed can move more flexibly. The Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 Airshaft is therefore slightly more forgiving than its predecessor and gives you a good control over your shots even if you hit closer to the frame.
The Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 Airshaft is exceptionally solid during a shot due to the reinforcements that have been made in the shaft. The so-called X-ARMS, a special material with an X shape, ensures that the racket blade remains very stable during play. The racket comes with the new Dynamix V.P. string with a thickness of 1.25 mm. This string has the same elasticity as the famous green 305 string by Tecnifibre. Compared to its predecessor (the DNAMX string) you have significantly more feel. The Squash Dry grip has many small perforations and sweat is excellently drained so that your grip on the Tecnifibre Carboflex 130 Airshaft remains optimal throughout the match. The racket comes with a sturdy cover that has an adjustable shoulder strap.
The Airshaft Section ensures that the squash racket accelerates more easily, this is due to the improved geometry of the frame tubes. These give a more dynamic response.
The X-Arms are crossed layers of carbon placed in the Carbon which cause torsional stiffness. This makes the squash racket easier to control with fast balls and hard hits. This together with the groove and placed reinforcements give a very solid feeling and a lot of control over the stroke.
Extended String Holes
The string holes of a racket better described as the holes that are drilled to push the grommit set through. Are slightly enlarged on the inside of the frame. This only concerns the 4 middle length and width strings (at the place of the sweetspot), which gives the string a little more freedom of movement and makes it easier to generate power.
Tecnifibre DYNAMIX V.P.
The newest string of Tecnifibre cannot be missed in the newest squash racket. Where the previous generation of the DNAMX was often labeled as hard and rather stiff, the new DYNAMIX V.P. many times softer. Where the DNAMX was 100% elastic, the DYNAMIX V.P. 400% elastic just like the famous 305 and X-One. The V.P. stands for Vapor Process, the string has actually been through a steam bath as a final treatment, as a result of which the fibers are more open. As a result, the power of the DNAMX has remained but the comfort has increased enormously. With the increase in comfort, there is more control and it is easier to place the ball where you want.
