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 Harrow to the courts to see if it was Lord of the Bounce.
Harrow Squash Balls
Cost £20 p/dozen
Speed Through Air 2/5
Bounce Height 2/5
Compared to most other 2-Dot balls out there the Harrow is one of the most unpredictable – feeling wayward at times on court, with an inconsistent bounce and speed.
Delivering greater hang time through the air and a slower speed of fetch front wall – the Harrow ball has a much lower bounce off the floor, making it harder to find a good repeating length in play.
On the plus, the variation proved to be an positive training stimulus to keep players on their toes for unsuspected bounces at all times.
