Reviews:

One of the most popular Prince squash rackets, the Airstick 130, came back in a new version in 2014. And in 2016 it has been upgraded again and got a slightly modified name TeXtreme Pro Airstick Lite 550.

All of them are very similar, only some players described the 2014 version a bit less whippy and a bit more head heavy – even though balance and other properties remained unaltered.

And the playing capabilities remained the same as well, the Airstick still offers light frame and excellent maneuverability. It’s really fun to play with it, especially if you like quick flicks using just your wrist – it’s very effective for a deceptive play, accurate drop shots and cutting the ball in. And great for volleys as well.

the 2016 version

Also, the power, control and accuracy are still on a very good level, it’s more an all round racquet than a power machine like many others in the Prince lineup.
