Eye Rackets Information

1. Eye warranty

Eye gives a 1 year warranty on all rackets. We have a very strict quality control and service is extremely important for us. Read about the conditions on

2. No heavy bumper strip

Research shows that bumper strips guarding racket heads do NOT protect against breakage in 96% of all cases. Research also shows that the sides of the racket head, between 10 o'clock and 2 o'clock, are the most vulnerable areas when coming into contact with the squash court wall. These areas are not protected by the bumper strip.

3. Each racket comes in 4 different versions

Flexibility: Direct response / Touch
String pattern: Control (14) / Power (12)
Balance: Head-light / Head-heavy
Shape: Teardrop / Open-throat

4. Paint technology

Research also shows that the paint used on rackets can increase the weight of the frame by up to 5%. Eye has developed a simple solution for this that we call Paint Technology.
This minimizes the amount of paint on each racket without detracting from its innovative, unique look.

5. Eye string pattern technology

String patterns:
Here the string patterns are the biggest influencer. Simply put, a racket with an open string pattern (12x17 strings) provides more power, slice (spin) and is more forgiving with a mishit, while one with a closed pattern (14x18 strings) provides more control when you hit without slice (spin).
Please read "Spin potential" for more information.
Eye is the first to launch open string patterns on all its top models!

Spin potential:
Squash players who play with spin/slice may find an open string pattern extremely beneficial.
When the ball is struck with a racket with an open string pattern, more of the ball is embedded into the space between strings - with fewer strings coming in contact with the ball, the strings grab or "bite" into the nap, which allows you to transfer more spin onto the ball. This allows players who place more spin on their shots to increase their control. Some spin can still be achieved when playing with a closed-pattern racket, but you will need to hit the ball with a lot more power, to get the same result. However, strings in an open string pattern break a lot faster.
