Very light frame and head light balance makes the Evolution 120 quick and maneuverable, perfect for a fast, aggressive style with lots of volleying. Great power and solid control.

Reviews:

The Evolution offers the lightest frame within the squash Aerogel 4D lineup (120 gram) and features an interesting head shape: the teardrop design is accompanied by a small bridge in the throat area. So while it gets a lot of power thanks to the long main strings, you still experience a similar feeling of control (the ball kind of sitting on the racket as one reviewer stated it) like with Dunlop close throat models.

Its low weight and head light balance makes it very quick and maneuverable, perfect for a fast, aggressive style with lots of volleys and not letting the ball behind you.

That’s why Nick Matthew (currently World #1) chose it as his racquet – his squash game is based on volleying and (as you can see in the video below) he mentioned how the balance and low weight enables you to get through the air really quickly, minimizing the time between start of the swing and impact.

Users mostly praise the power of this racket and report a slight lack of control on the other hand. Some also mentioned it really improved their swing.

Also, there exists an F120 variation designed for ladies – with different color and head size only 490 sq cm – used by Madeline Perry or Sarah Kippax.
