New Manta Racquets - A sneak peek!

My graphic design firm, Pacey + Pacey Design, was recently hired to overhaul the artwork for Manta's line of squash racquets. We reworked the colour schemes, redesigned all the logos and even named one of the racquets - The X Factor. The final prototypes have arrived and if you're a member of Squash Republic's Facebook group you've seen these photos but if you're not I'm pleased to present this sneak preview of Manta's highly anticipated 2009 Collection.

The entire line will be available for sale online January 1, 2009 at Super Charged Racquets & Upparel (aka S.C.R.U. Squash). Nice.

Nice threads dood!

I thought I would put a photo online that's "just for the ladies":) (Click the photo to see it larger - you have to!)

Raise your hands with me if you want to bring this "style" back to our lovely game. Word!

From the copy block: "On or off court, Hawk squash racquets will catch your eye." Indeed. I, for one, will be playing my afternoon match shirtless and in high socks. (Sorry about that Jody:)

Anyone out there have a Hawk racquet? Couldn't find them.

(Who thinks the guy on the left resembles a certain Vancouver, men's A, squash playing writer with the initials S.K? LOL)
