With Prince's O3 technology at the 12 & 6 o'clock positions of the racquet head, the O3 Shark Hybrid combines both existing Prince grommet technologies with the impressive performance of the large O Port grommet system. We found the addition of the O Ports makes this Shark more comfortable and powerful than its Turbo Shark predecessors.

Note: All racquets come pre-strung with Prince Lightning String.

The O3 Shark Hybrid offers excellent comfort and a very forgiving feel from all areas of the court. There's some nice power to this racquet, but not so much to make one lose control on aggressive strokes. We found plenty of grip from the stringbed, enabling us to find lots of spin and control on faster swings. At net this one offers a very maneuverable feel, some nice pop and lots of comfort. This standard length racquet offers plenty of pop and spin potential for aggressive serving. Both baseline and serve & volley players at the 3.0-4.5 level will find this one has plenty to offer.
