The UNSQUASHABLE Strike is an excellent racket for beginners and recreational players. The frame is made of a mix of graphite and aluminium and weighs 160 grams. Because the strings run in a fan shape, two strings come out of each opening in the bottom of the racket, which makes it easy to hit the ball hard. The small openings between the strings give you enough precision to play the ball into the target. Furthermore, the UNSQUASHABLE Strike is very forgiving: even if you hit the ball close to the frame you can still place it accurately. This racket comes without a cover.
