Reviews:

In 2013 Prince released one of their best selling squash rackets of all time, the TT Airstick 130 (also used by World No.1 Ramy Ashour). It offers a nice combination of power and control but what users praise the most is its maneuverability. It’s light, very fast and enables quick reactions – an ideal racquet for an attacking player who does a lot of volleying. In this regard it’s quite similar to the Dunlop Biomimetic Evolution 130.

The sweet spot is nice and large, a bit higher because of the fan string pattern, balance and touch are also great.

Prince Airstick 130

It’s not as powerful as the Speedport Black or similar racquets but still offers a good power, enough to play from the back of the court effectively. The control and accuracy is on a solid level as well.

The only mentioned disadvantage is that (as most Prince top models) it’s a bit more brittle – but the lower price makes buying a replacement a lot less painful 🙂
