Squash racquets ship to us from the Factory already strung at a mid-range tension for a combination of power and control. The string variety used at the factory is typically a basic 17 gauge synthetic gut or one step above, offering decent playability for the average player.
If you want to enhance the performance of your squash racquet, go ahead and choose a premium string from the drop down menu provided when you are placing your order. We will cut out the factory strings and install your choice of string at your desired string tension (see below).
Reminder: Squash racquet strings are usually 17 gauge, 18 gauge or even 19 gauge. Seventeen gauge strings (thicker) are more durable than 18 gauge, however 18g (thinner) and 19g (even thinner!) are higher performing in terms of playability.

Choosing String Tension for your squash racquet:
As a rule, squash racquets are typically strung between 22 and 36 pounds of tension. Racquets come from the factory strung at a mid-range tension for a blend of both power and control.
String tension is measured in pounds. The higher the number, the tighter the string job (the more pounds of tension the string is pulled to). Higher tensions result in a firmer feel and more control (but less power). The lower the number of pounds, the looser the string job. Lower tensions result in more power and more comfort to the arm.
Simply select your desired string and tension from our drop-down menu when purchasing your racquet!
Please Note: if you order your racquet with any of the string customizations mentioned above, it is not returnable as it is no longer in “Factory” condition. Thank You.
