Black Knight Balls

SquashXtra: Kit Bag - Black Knight Balls

Speed through the air, rebound height off the front wall, durability, height of bounce off the floor and texture must all come together in a delicate blend of rubber compound to produce a ball that compliments the dynamic demands of the sport – making it neither too easy nor too difficult.

We took the Black Knight to the courts to see if it was Lord of the Bounce.

Black Knight

Cost £28 p/dozen
Durability 2.5/5
Speed Through Air 4.5/5
Bounce Height 4.5/5

Similar to the Dunlop in weight the Black Knight ball was much faster through the air – requiring much less force to hit the back corners and bouncing with much greater height as a result – giving the striker more time on the shot akin to a Dunlop single-yellow ball.

The high speed off the front wall made finding a consistent length more difficult while the logo and colour faded quickly – possible showing signs of lower manufacture quality than some of the others on the market.
