A squash racket with a Teardrop (drop-shaped) shape makes it easier to hit with a lot of power. This is because there is more room for customization. In other words: it is possible to tension longer strings. This considerably increases the resilience of the racket. The counterpart of a Teardrop racket is a Heart racket. These rackets have a bridge at the bottom of the blade. This makes the maximum length of the strings shorter. The big advantage is that players benefit from more control over the ball. Technical and all-round players should opt for a squash racket with a Heart shape.
