Best suited to intermediates through advanced players, the Prince Tour 98 ESP is a speedy spin machine with a forgiving response. Thanks to Prince's EXO3 ports and Extreme String Pattern (16x16), the comfort and spin are baked right into the racquet. Players who like to impose their will with high arching, spin loaded balls should have a blast with this one. From the baseline our TW playtesters reported a light and fast feel with the kind of ball rotation that has the ball jumping off the court. There is also some power on tap, but it's not overwhelming given the absence of mass in the head. At net the fast feel lends itself to reaction volleys and put-aways. This racquet's speedy response is also an asset on service returns where it's easy to pull off a solid shot under pressure. All in all, the Tour 98 ESP is a great option for 4.0+ players looking for a comfortable stick with big spin and a nice balance between power and control.
