While this racquet’s fiberglass construction offers impressive durability, it also cuts down on bulk, weighing just 175 grams. This limits the amount of force the user must exert, resulting in fewer errors, sharper swings, and increased confidence. Users found the handle soft and ergonomic as well.
This racket is more than twice as expensive than our other choices.
This starter racquet has a compact, “beginner frame” layout for those just beginning their racquetball journey. It’s great for kids too, and features alloy construction that’s sturdy enough to handle smacking floors and walls. Grip size is 3 ⅝”. A fantastic value as well.
In terms of string tension, this model is not as powerful as some others.
Wilson’s “V-Matrix” frame and cross section are the cornerstones of this racquet, providing extra string bed movement, consistent control, and impressive power. This gives the user more rebound force with each string for faster serves and returns. The weight-to-power ratio is the Striker’s biggest asset.
Some users reported the handle unraveling after moderate use.

Certain users found the Beginner set lacking in durability.
This model sits in a sweet spot of high-end materials and fair prices. The handle is crafted from tough 7000-grade aluminum to withstand impact, and the 16g monofilament strings gives players more spin and more power at ball impact. In addition, reviewers found the handle comfortable to hold over prolonged use.
Some players deemed this racquet a bit too heavy.

Racquetball racquets are generally lightweight and allow you to hit a ball accurately. They sometimes include a string pattern to help you maximize your power on forehand and backhand swings.
