i used to play with one.. eh.. too much power... i had it it at like 63 lbs but my shots we're still going long.. pretty good at the net though.. switched to the O3 White.. more controlled but still pretty powerful...

thanks for your help :)

what about if you are looking for more power in your game?

will this racquet be good or still too overwhelming? how does it take spin?

A lot depends on the strings you use too. Have anything in mind?

hmm if u want more power u should def check this one out... try using ummm strings that offer tons of control... the spin was easy to generate... the strings i had (umm prince synthetic gut 17 gauge i think) offered pretty good spin.... the strings probably had something to do with how my shots we're going long.. try demoing it.. see how u like it..

I do use it since 2 or 3 months and I really like it, it goes very well at the net and I serve a lot better with it than before, I thinks it's a really good racket!

My sister has the 03 Orange, i played with it a bit and i feels nice and bouncy, its a little heavy for my liking but a good bit of control if i was to reccoment one along the same lines it would be the Wilson N six one team :D

Question, Does it make a differnce on what Color it is? Because from reading the thread it seems like it does... I always thought they were just different colors for aesthetic reason... :shrug:

yeah, the racquets are all completely different

for example, there is the prince o3 red, the prince o3 blue, the prince o3 white and the prince o3 tour (which is just an orange version) and they are all different.

you could look them up on tenniswarehouse.com and it tells you everything you would want to know about them :)

only with prince and that's recently,for 1-2 years, with others it's just "aesthetic reason".
