Storage Tips
Avoid subjecting your racket to major temperature fluctuations. Avoid storing in low temperatures (below 5°C).


Technology: 6061 aluminium
Thanks to its aluminium/graphite structure (6061 aluminium on the head and graphite on the shaft and handle), this racket is extremely resistant to impacts.
Technology: Carbon Power Shaft
The ARTENGO SR160 shaft is reinforced for more power than you'd get with a classic racket.
Technology: High Protection Bumper
The bumper has also been designed for greater resistance to impacts with squash court walls (High Protection Bumper technology) which extends the racket's lifespan.
Weight = 165 g (unstrung)
At 165 g (unstrung), this racket provides excellent power so that you can push your opponent to the back of the court. The weight of the racket's frame (without strings, bumper or grip) is only 150 g, making it nice and light for beginner players. This racket's characteristics let novices make rapid progress without having to upgrade their equipment too quickly.
Balance = 360mm (unstrung)
Its 360 mm balance (slightly head-heavy) also makes it very powerful.
Head size = 500 cm²
The 500 cm² head size lets you get away with slightly off-centre shots. Because the head is longer, the strings are also longer which creates power for beginner players.
String pattern = 14 x 16
The open string pattern has been designed to give beginner players power and forgiveness. As a result of the wide gaps between strings, the head is more flexible and therefore more powerful and able to tolerate off-centre shots.

    Poor quality

    Used the racquet a handful of times. Early on a small split appeared on the handle, no big deal I thought. Couple more uses and a whole side split.

    Sr 160 Great entry level racquet

    I play regularly with some junior and relatively new squash players. I introduced them to the SR 160 as an alternative to the courts hire racquets. It has proved to be really popular. The racquet is really nicely balanced, quite light and strung to assist the player develop a good feel for the ball. With the tear drop shape of the head, the racquet has a big 'sweet spot' which means when you get the timing and your swing right you can really get the ball moving. This is a good racquet at an awesome price that means if you are a once in a while player you can own your own and enjoy the familiarity without spending big.
