There is no aluminum in this frame. It is made of Formosa Taiwan Carbon with fibre-reinforced polymer for durability.
Being squash players ourselves we realize that not everybody has a budget to afford an expensive squash racquet, especially when you are just starting or developing your skills.
Furthermore, many high end racquets are often fragile as playability is prioritized over durability.
If you are not an advanced player, you may tend to hit the wall a bit too hard for the racquet to last long enough.
Durability was our main focus for the Duro 120.
That being said, the racquet plays very well too. It feels solid, doesn’t vibrate and generates a good amount of power.
Hopefully, you will give Xamsa a try and will see for yourself that low price doesn’t always mean low quality.
