Today we are testing a tool to refurbish used squash balls: echo/2XP. We want to thank echosquash.com for providing the product for the test.
Test 2: Squash Ball Buffer
The echo/2XP is a tool to buff worn squash balls to extend the ball’s lifespan. Basically you are rubbing off a very small layer of the surface to bring back the grip to the ball. Generally speaking we like the concept of repairing things over just buying new ones – that’s why we gave it a try! The second version of the product, made in USA, is now available in Europe for about €45,-.

We think the echo/2XP is a useful tool to refurbish squash balls. It definitely extends the playability of squash balls by removing the slick surface of used balls! Theoretically the process can be repeated multiple times, but keep in mind that the product only improves the outer shell of the ball.
