When Sawyer isn’t playing racquetball he is often thinking about it. He operates a blog dedicated to the sport of racquetball. As he is also technologically advanced he sometimes runs comparisons between different equipment and players using Excel to analyze the data.
One part of racquetball that Sawyer Howitt recently crunched the numbers on was the rating of racquets. One of the things his analysis noted was that, on average, Gearbox is the best in the business when it comes to racquets. He also found that, on average, Wilson makes the worst racquets despite being one of the biggest names in the industry.
