Comments: Bought this racket last year. Broke/cracked one in a routine not so hard collision within first 6 months. Appreciate the replacement reignite from rbw. However that broke too in another less than 6 months following a crash between two racquets in a doubles. The break is like a crack but it bends the racquet resulting in a funny looking shape and balance. Have been using ektelons for few years.Moving onto some other brands now.  Liked RBW customer service though.

Comments: The Re-Ignite redesign is outstanding, I currently have 2 and they have been restrung multiple times this season and the frame is still in great shape. This is a far better design than last years model, which did not last over two months each.

Comments: This was my first racquet back in 2010. It's really heavy but the racquet will take a beating. It has a metal frame but has no graphite. It's shape will distort if you hit the wall too hard on the sides but it won't crack and break like higher quality racquets do. The racquet also vibrates like no tomorrow. The vibrations will give you tennis elbow. All starter kit racquets vibrate. It's worth the $20 if your not sure if you'll like racquetball.

Comments: This is a great racquet. It has a very firm feel throughout the frame. I'm more of a power+tap player and the racquet does well with both styles. The only bad thing about this racquet is that if you smack it on the wall while playing the paint chips off. Ektelon makes an accessory called Ektelon bumper guard tape. I'm assuming they knew that would happen. Unfortunately that also makes the racquet heavier.

Comments: If you liked EXO3 Black you'll love it. Very similar feel, more power. EXO3 Black developed crack after 1 year, this is a sweet upgrade...
