customer review

Comments: I have been using a heat seeker 2.0 (e-force) for the past 2.5 years.  I play in a league every week.  I am a power player and the area I needed to work on was my touch and placement.  The invasion 175 gram is by far the best racquet I have ever used.  I just played a game against a guy who was an all American football play back in the day and while it was a tough match I felt I always had the upper hand.  The ball goes where I want it and that coupled w my power has earned me a great spot in this seasons league.  I attribute my success to a couple of factors but one having to do with the racquet itself is the additional stabilizers on the side of the racqet.  I figure my sweet spot would enlarge relative to my heat seeker which had them but it had less. All the guys in the league have noticed a difference in my play and thy have since taken pictures of the racquet w the intention of buying it.

Comments: Injured (separated) collarbone during table tennis match in my early twenties; shoulder issues also were a part of my playing profile (rotator etc.). Started using an E-Force Judgment Launch pad 210G in early nineties for its vibration and Impulse response characteristics. Became paranoid at not being able to get another Judgment 3 years later and purchased a Radium 170G as backup. The Judgment gave out in 2011; demoed Invasion with regional E-Force rep and was elated. The Radium although good, was not good enough for my now 20 year older body. Determined that my physical and mental well being was worth the cost of a top-flight racquet (at this point icing each session along with (2) Blue horse pill Aleve). Purchased first Invasion X December 2013, second January 2014, and third April 2014. Warm-ups developed away from agonized trauma to the shoulder to numb the joint, then, play till the pain broke back through. Now I ceiling ball dribble left/right court with full flex and control, then shoot rollers both left and right, then turn around and say ready to go with no trepidation that I am ill prepared to play at my full potential. These racquets have given me back 5-8 years in my racquetball playing life. They are a godsend to older and injured player, but in reality they are an ultimate racquet for all players

Comments: I am impressed by this racquet as well. It hits hard and smooth. I would definitely demo  one prior to buying though. The 175 i have is a little heavy for me but i am adapting to it. It feels light when picking it up, but it's while swinging that you feel the weight. The long tubes bothered me upon first sight, but they don't interfere at all with the performance. Vibration is none. I like the technifibre string on mine and it seems to last on this racquet. I usually break strings after 2 weeks but this has lasted a month already. Excellent doubt about it.

Comments: 8 months ago I tore my rotator cuff and was in therapy for months. When I was told I could start playing RB again one or two games a week, I tried to get back in the game, but the Head Black Widow I had hurt my arm too much. I was going to quit until I talked to a pro at Racquetball Warehouse and he told me about the E-Force Invasion X 175 and to demo it.
I'm now playing 3 times a week with no shoulder pain at all. It is absolutely amazing to say the least.
The racquet has no vibration at all, plus a Ton of Power with good control, most of all NO PAIN!!
Thank You Rb Warehouse for the great advice and service.
