Released in summer 2017, Xamsa PXT 115 is a new model in the PXT line.
It has the same mold as the PXT 110 but is a bit heavier and more durable.
Based on the feedback we received from players of different levels, PXT 115 feels more solid, has a larger sweet spot, provides better control but is less powerful than the PXT 110.
Overall, we think that the PXT 115 is a more versatile racquet whereas the PXT 110 is better suited for an attacking style of play.
A few words about technology used in PXT 115 construction.
The frame is made of Toray Japan standard modulus carbon fiber woven with high modulus carbon fiber.
Unlike the PXT 110, the PXT 115 doesn't have basalt in the head of the racquet. No need to reinforce it further as it has a more head heavy balance with a few extra grams in the head, which provides for better durability.
On the image below you will see the shaft of the racquet that looks like a snake skin.
This is a layer of vibration damping material (carbon fiber with polyolefin) woven with a layer of strengthening material (basalt). It's for illustration purposes only. For the final version of the racquet, we painted "snake skin" over with matt black. You can only see it when you remove the grip.
While testing different prototypes, we did a series of drives, volleys and drops and the prototype with "snake skin" on the shaft (155 gr / 365 mm) produced more consistent shots without any vibration and we decided to give it a go.
Hopefully, you will love this racquet too.

We look forward to your feedback.
