Karakal Squash Racquets 2010/2011
This year Karakal is sponsoring the Whistler Squash Club. Through this sponsorship, club members will have access to special pricing not available in Retail Stores. Proceeds will go to support our Junior program.
The following prices are for Whistler Squash Club Members only. Prices do not include GST, and checks are to be made out to the Whistler Squash Club.
To order any of the items listed below, please contact Rob Eberhard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: With today's technology, Karakal racquets are lighter and more durable then ever before. This is obtain by strengthening the racquet in areas of anticipated stress. Be aware though that due to the nature of the game all racquets are susceptible to breakage. Racquets that are broken almost always brake because of stress on the racquet in a manner that it was not designed for.
This is an ultra-light racquet. I would only recommend it to those individuals who have played with ultra-light racquets, (below 120gms), in the past and have a personal appreciation for ease of maneuverability that comes with this racquet.
Suggested Retail: $230, Squash Club Price: $170
Tribal SL 125
This is the racquet Ben Thomas plays with. It is a super-light and has a mid-racquet balance point. The open throat will provide slightly more power at the sweet spot.
Suggested Retail: $200, Squash Club Price: $145
This is the racquet Rob Eberhard plays with. It is also a super-light and has a mid-racquet balance point. The bridged throat will provide slightly more control over ball placement.
Suggested Retail: $190, Squash Club Price: $135
Tribal Tour 150
This racquet has a very similar feel to the Tribal 125 but the added weight offers the user the feeling of a more solid stoke. Playing with a slightly heavier racquet exchanges reactive maneuverability for power and consistency. Priced less than $100, with club pricing, this is an ideal recreational racquet.
Suggested Retail: $140, Squash Club Price: $95
XS-600 Indoor Court Shoe
This shoe is a unique, lightweight, squash specific shoe. It provides significant support using reinforced micro fibers and memory foam in the heal for superior cushioning. Both Ben Thomas and Robert Eberhard play with Karakal shoes and can vouch for the shoes superior playing experience.
Suggested Retail: $115, Squash Club Price: $85
RB-35 Racquet Bag
Although you can't see it in this picture, one side of the bag has an ideal carrying handle while the other side of the bag offers shoulder straps so that the bag handles like a back pack. A very convenient little accessory for shoes, racquet and a change of clothes.
Suggested Retail: $55, Squash Club Price: $40
