Special Features:
In addition to the advanced materials composition, Ashaway squash rackets share two special frame features:

  • Nodal Enhancement Rather than the traditional uniform or tapered frame cross-section, Ashaway rackets employ strategically positioned nodes to effectively "tune" the frame for optimum results: Power Node - positioned to amplify the effect of 6 main strings, this node stiffens and reinforces the frame at the 12 o'clock position. Control Nodes - positioned to support the strings at the heart of the sweatspot.
    Stabilization Nodes - stiffen and solidify the frame at key points to create a more stable impact for the hit.
  • Full Motion string holes (20)
    Complementing the Power and Control Nodes, 20 string holes have been enlarged to allow the strings to pivot against the outside of the frame rather than the inside, adding up to 2 cm of active string length.

  • Head size: 490 sq. cm.
  • Frame Weight: 140 g
  • Composition: Carbon 4, eXtreme Modulus Graphite, High Modulus Graphite
  • Pre-strung: Ashaway SuperNick XL Ti

    Playing Features:
    Using a combination of Carbon 4, eXtreme Modulus Graphite and High Modulus Graphite, the Destiny 490 combines a generous tear drop string surface with a light, stiff frame to allow power hitters more control, while adding power for players who need an extra boost.
