I have been using Prince Airstick 130 squash racket for last 4 year and can imagin comparing it with any other racket. The new price is to high.

i played with dunlop & wilson, shifted to head cyano and ended up buying airstick for fun. Now i cant let it go ! its an amazing racket with the mix of power, balance and control that an advanced or intermediate player requires. has improved my game tremendously and the racket is keeping up with my development in the game! looking forward to buying this racket in ramy ashours version again and again !!

bought two of the airstick 130 recently.
used wilson hyperhammers 145 for the last 8 years and thought of changing racquets as i have improved a lot over the years. form dipped tremendously - guess I am not used to a new racquet after 8 years.
changing back to hyperhammer now, and focus instead of just enjoying the game and playing competitively.
