The Harrow Renegade is one of the heaviest squash rackets on this list at roughly 145 grams which means that it produces a greater force, but with a weaker swing. It has a head heavy balance that improves the control on the racket and increases the fluidity of each swing. The head heavy balance of this model makes it harder for the player to make quick volley and flick shots.
It also comes with an open throat or the teardrop throat, which ensures that it has a larger string-bed area and a bigger sweet spot. It is able to maximize its strength when it comes to the playability of the racket, but it becomes harder to control due to the increase in trampoline effect.
The factory spring that comes with this model is either the Ashaway String Supernick XL Micro or the Harrow T200. However, since this model has a large string-bed area, the strings on this unit is less prone to breakage.
