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


Technology: High Modulus Carbon
This carbon fibre, originally designed in Japan, is one of the stiffest on the market and offers an excellent weight-to-stiffness ratio. This stiff fibre confers power and stability to the racket head.
Technology: Carbon Power Shaft
The ARTENGO SR560 shaft is reinforced for more power than you'd get with a classic racket.
Technology: Tacky Grip
The elastomeric polyurethane gives this grip the best balance between tackiness and absorption for a great feel.
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 140 g, making it nice and light for advanced players. This racket's features mean that intermediate players can continue improving.
Balance = 355mm (unstrung)
The 355 mm neutral balance gives the racket a good compromise between handling and power.
Head size = 499cm²
The 499cm² head creates a racket that makes up for centring errors. The entire racket is therefore more forgiving. Because the head is longer, the strings are also longer so that the ARTENGO SR560 has more power - perfect for advanced players.
String pattern = 14 x 18
The string pattern has been designed to give advanced players power and control. The strings have been tightened for additional control.

    Comfortable & light and generates excellent power.

    Tested on club night at Grove Park Squash Club. Definitely improved my power and timing and it felt very comfortable. For £40 seems like it will be great value for money and I am certainly considering purchasing one

    Excellent Racquet

    I tried out this racquet at Grove park squash club for a few games. I loved the feel of it and preferred it to the SR990 as I like a head heavy racquet. Excellent value for money too.

    Good value, could be improved

    I've tried this racket a few times (I coach so spend a lot of time on court) and my initial reaction is that it's a good racket for club players of all levels, but could be improved. A number of club players have used it extensively and the reaction is generally good. Our number 1 player used it, preferred it to the 990, a 5th team player used it for a month (and then bought one) and loved it and 4 juniors received them for Christmas and all like the racket.

    For me, I found it slightly on the heavy side, so when I'm coaching it makes it hard work as I'm on court for 2 hours + a time. The balance is good, the sweet spot is big and forgiving, there is almost no vibration but good feel, so in many ways a great racket.

    For the club player the racket will generate more power than the 990 that is likely to be helpful, so definitely worth considering if you're looking for a good quality and value for money racket. The area I'd like to see improved is the quality of string used. When I've restrung both the 960 and 990 the quality of the experience improves massively for me.

    In summary, slightly too heavy for me but many who have tried it love it and then buy it. Club players may look at the Decathlon brand and think a Head / Dunlop / Prince etc. racket is better but I'd suggest you try it (if you have the opportunity) and make your own mind up, failing that £39.99 maybe worth the risk of a cheeky little purchase.

    Raqueta con unas sensaciones de golpeo magníficas, ideal para el jugador que busca perfeccionarse en el Squash. Peso adecuado para la gama de raqueta que es.
    Y lo mejor de todo, es el precio que tiene.
    ¡Totalmente recomendable!
