With a slightly higher weight, the Ion X-Force Yellow 145G, designed with David Palmer, provides more power to meet the demands of squash’s top players. New technology provides a stiffer and more responsive frame.

Black Knight Ion series squash racquets exploit reduced frame distortion and torque for a larger sweetspot and greater control for hard hitters. This is achieved using Nano-Crystalline Technology (NCT) as an additive to the polymer structure of the graphite frame, in combination with the Ion frame geometry, where the shaft is flared in 2 dimensions between the bridge and the handle to create a progressive flex, increasing power transfer.

This racquet is prestrung with Ashaway SuperNick.

Nano Crystalline Technology (NCT): An additive incorporated into the carbon fiber that not only helps reduce vibration but binds the fibers for added durability increasing strength and density. The difference is a stiffer frame with less torque on off center hits, producing more accuracy and increased power.

Thermal Core Technology (TCT): The racquet is injected with super heated air while it is being cured in the ovens. This allows for a uniform curing process inside the frame and out which means that the racquet will have greater durability and a more responsive hit.

16K Hyper Tensile Fibers: 16,000 individual strands are woven together for more structural strength, and durability.

Power of 6: At each stage of development, the frame was analyzed under stress at 6 key points, with the resulting data used to fine tune the model until the best performance results were achieved for the composition and geometry of the model.

Power Surge: Drives the power of the swing towards the racquet head while cutting vibration and adding stiffness to the shaft. It can be seen on the sides of the shaft.
