You might remember last year’s Toron Chrome Limited Edition. What you might not know is that these were almost sold out in just the presale period. Will this be a repeat in 2013?...we’ll find out soon enough! What we do know is this new Gold Toron Lite LE is the not only the most eye grabbing racquetball racquet we’ve ever seen but also plays as well as any racquetball racquet ever created. If you want to be a part of history and own one of these historic Ruben Gonzalez model’s order before it’s too late. We will be shipping all preorders out on May 15th.
The Ektelon EXO3 RG Toron Lite Limited Edition is available in 3 grip sizes. The SSR (Super Small Round is designed for the player with a very small hand or one that likes a traditional round handle. The SS (Super Small) which is the same small grip flat handle that Ektelon has produced for years. The Large size handle is the largest grip handle that is designed for the player that wears an XL Glove size or has a larger hand.
If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.
I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), or Head TackiMac for the added traction to prevent slippage. The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down.For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.
The Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable then the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $22.00. It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away.
If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Ektelon Silencer (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).
The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.
A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet.Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!
We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet.

Energy Bridge Inserts
The New EXO3 Ruben Gonzalez Toron Lite comes with gold energy bridge inserts at the top of the racquet only, the sides do not have inserts.
EXO3 features The Energy Channel, a radical new frame design which creates elongated open channels located at the 12, 3 and 9 o’clock positions of the frame – which moves the mass to the outer most edges of the frame for exceptional stability. Complementing the Energy ChannelTM of EXO3 is a visible, engineering breakthrough called the Energy BridgeTM. Soft thermoplastic pieces are inserted into the Energy Channel to create an exo-skeletal bridge structure along the outside surface of the frame. The result is a string bed that is almost entirely suspended from the frame itself.
Energy BridgeTM – An exo skeletal structure made from thermoplastic that creates racquetball’s first suspended string bed. The suspended string bed increases the virtual headsize of the racquet and reduces frame vibration by up to 63% and enlarges the sweetspot by up to 51%
Energy ChannelTM – A sculpted groove within the frame that enhances the dynamic benefits of the Energy BridgeTM to provide added stability, boost ball control and increase spin.
Other Ektelon Technologies Used
Delivering Extra Stiffness and Stability. Frame designed with a cross section exceeding 24mm to increase stiffness and stability. Power, torque resistance and frame vibration are improved.
Ektelon replaced traditional pin-sized string holes with revolutionary giant O-ports, providing total string freedom for a livelier response across the entire string bed. This increases the sweet spot, creating a Sweet Zone, which means ultimate power on every shot!
The new grip system for the MORE performance racquets, the clear grip of the Air + Comfort handle reveals four air-filled quandrants that move independently for MORE shock absorption and grip ventilation. The red cross dampener at the bottom quiets frame vibrations for extra comfort.
Tungsten is a strong dense metal which provides precision weight distribution, allowing further weight reduction in non critical areas, to deliver superior sweet spot size, power, directional control, and reduced shock in a lighter weight racquet frame.
A unique shaped shaft which absorbs wall and floor impacts for more comfort and durability, yet provides full frame stiffness for maximum ball striking power.
Lightweight premium grade graphite/carbon composite increases stiffness to bring you more power.
The longer racquet revolution now adds a new dimension to racquetball! One-half to one-inch longer than standard length racquets, perfectly balanced LongBody racquets make the game easier to play. A LongBody racquet adds up to 10% more power and as much as 13% more reach to your game.
Wallbeater Bumper System...
Less shock. Patent-pending bumper system reduces shock from impact 70% as well as frame breakage vs. normal plastic bumpers.

Ratings and comparisons for all racquets can be found in Racquetworld's Technology/Ratings Section
Control 1 (Front Court) represents how the racquet handles upfront in the court. We’re basically looking at how certain components stacked together produce good (or bad) racquet maneuverability. To figure this out we look at the weight, balance point, and shape of the frame. We throw all this info into Pat’s brain along with a couple hours of hit testing and out pops the rating. This value is useful especially for doubles players who find themselves covering the upfront court a lot. It’s also good to know if you’re a good server and find yourself quickly putting away returns off your serve without leaving front middle court.
Control 2 (Back Court) represents the traditional control rating when taking a full shot from mid to back court. Our goal with control is to redirect the Force of the ball. We again focus on weight, balance point, shape, string pattern and tension, frame stiffness and on court experience.
