Harrow Vibe Karim Abdel Gawad
The Harrow Vibe is the racket used by the 'baby-faced assassin' Karim Abdel Gawad. This Egyptian top squash player, who was crowned world champion in 2016, is famous for his subtle attacking game. His racket, the Harrow Vibe, offers a great mix of control, touch and manoeuvrability. The Harrow Vibe has a somewhat larger racket head and a thinner profile than for example the Vapor or the Spark, and this makes it also slightly more forgiving.
The Harrow Vibe is an extremely light racket: it only weighs 125 grams unstrung. The balance point is situated just above the middle of the frame and the racket feels extremely comfortable in your hand. The extra weight in the top contributes to the smoothness of your swing and gives you more control over your shots. What immediately strikes you when you play with the Harrow Vibe is its manoeuvrability. You can attack by hitting the ball earlier or hold your shot until the very last moment and by doing so disguise where you are going to hit the ball.
You do not have to worry about the Harrow Vibe slipping out of your hand during the game thanks to the tacky PU grip that stays firmly in your hand even during the most intensive rallies. The racket is pre-strung with the Harrow T300 string that ensures even more precision. The Harrow Vibe comes without a racket cover; Harrow is an American brand and as a rule, rackets in the US are supplied without covers. If you are looking for a racket with an extraordinary touch, precision and agility, then the Harrow Vibe is your perfect choice.
