Comments: I played with the Wilson Prostaff 100L and switched to this racquet. This racquet suits my game. It is
comfortable for ground strokes/volleys and my arm doesn't feel tired on long rallies. I had a lot of control and this frame offered
excellent spin, which kept shots from going long. My frame is strung with NXT 17 in the mains and Solinco Tour Bite 17 in the
crosses. I am very pleased! (I am a 4.0W player)
Comments: This racquet is loaded with control and spin. The light weight and EXO3 make it easy to swing and
generate fast racquet head speed. With its good maneuverability it is fun to try different shots. It aids my serve with added spin,
however it does not provide much free power. On volleys, it is not as stable as other slightly heavier frames, especially when you
are pulled wide and not able to hit in front. You need to get used to the bounce or vibration in order to get the fast and accurate
Comments: This racquet is outstanding. It's just flexible enough to allow me to use a full co-poly string set and
with my hybrid grip on the forehand I have never generated so much spin. One hand backhand topspin and slice are, also, eye-
opening. It's the perfect head-size, beam width, swingweight and balance for my grinder/retriever style. My serve is aided by the
spin capability too. The feel with the wide open grommets suits me fine. I want to note that the string I am using for the first time
is a big contributor to the entire package (Polyfibre TCS Rapid). It's a soft co-poly, and the flexible racquet and open grommets
have resulted in zero arm pain which I invariably encountered with stiff string in the past. The bottom line is that this is a great
racquet. Thanks Prince of New Jersey.
Comments: This is an awesome racquet. It is light weight enables me to make a long stroke with ease, especially
my one-handed backhand topspin. It's great for slice as well. I must say the vibration dampening is great as I manage to return
fast serve with better control. On volleys, I need a little time to get used to this racquet. Once I could control its bounce, I
managed to hit solid volley. I like how it copes with my serve. I enjoy my topspin serve
with the racquet. Overall verdict, it is fun and fantastic.
Comments: This is a great racquet! It provides just the right amount of power, control, and spin for me
(intermediate player). I feel as though I can place the ball much better that with my old racquet and it seems to be very arm
friendly. For a pretty lightweight frame, I was surprised at how stable it is in my hand in hitting hard returns and also how much
power it seems to have as well. Great job, Prince!
Comments: Best racquet ever sooo much control spin and power and great swing speed. Must buy!!!
Comments: Great job Prince! In short my long story is: I am a 47 year old 4.0 player. I played with a Wilson K Factor
6.1 Team for five years. Great solid racquet. As I got older the 95 square inch headsize and high swingweight of the 325 started
to make it difficult for me. So I decided to change. I gave the first try to the wilson BLX 6.1 Team because it had a lower
swingweight and it gave me arm problems. Good feel but not the same strong racquet as the K Factor 6.1 Team plus it still was 95
square inches. So I came back to the K Factor again but at the same time started looking for another racquet. I read, researched,
studied and analyzed many alternatives of different brands. I did not seem to find the ideal racquet for me. I tried the Wilson BLX
Surge. It has no feel, but especially has no power at all.
Comments: I'm a 5'7", 49 year old, 3.5 level player, and I'm really enjoying the EXO3 Tour Team. I was looking for a
tweener or light player's racket, and this has the right specs. On top of that, I think that Prince's port system makes a bigger
difference than any other technology. I think you really get a larger sweet spot. Against my competition, this translates to plenty
of stability, a soft, sweet feel, and lots of spin. On the backhand, this has really helped me connect and hit deep shots when
under pressure. I also demo'd the Babolat Pure Storm Team GT (too powerful for me), Prince EXO3 Black Team (too powerful), and
Dunlop Biomimetic 500 (didn't like the feel). Used to play with the Babolat Drive Z Lite (less stable than EXO3 TT).
Comments: I think that most racquet technologies make very little difference. To me,
racquets that are similar in size, weight, balance, and stiffness play very similarly, regardless of brand. Except for the Prince
racquets with port holes. Like everyone else has commented, the EXO3 Tour Team has a very different feel - super-dampened is
the best description that I can think of. Also, its sweetspot seems much bigger than for other racquets of the same head size,
weight and balance. For me, this means a lot more stability on groundies (especially my backhand), and better performance
whenever I hit it off-center (which is a lot). Spin is great (I haven't tried any other string yet). I think headspeed might be slightly
faster than for other racquets with the same swingweight - I didn't want to believe that the port holes could actually increase head
speed, but I think they might. At my level, this racquet is plenty stable to return my opponents' hardest serves and to volley their
hardest groundies. I think I'll be playing the EXO3 Tour Team for a long time. I'm 5'7", 49 years old, and I don't do well with
heavier sticks. I used to play with a Babolat Drive Z Lite; the EXO3 Tour Team is much more stable and sweet, with more spin
(according to my opponents). Also demo'd the EXO3 Black Team, and the Babolat Pure Storm Team. They were too powerful for
Comments: I agree with all the glowing comments about this frame. As an aging teaching professional, I can no
longer swing a 12.5 oz stick quickly for any extended length of time. All 11 oz frames get knocked around, but not this amazing
beauty. The previous negative comments are puzzling since I have had the opposite experience. Hitting yesterday with a former
tour player who is 20 years younger and hits a wickedly heavy ball, the frame would not budge! This one is a MUST demo and a
great platform for customization as well. I have never used a stick without lead until now.
Comments: This frame hits reasonably well off the ground but suffers from the malady of most racquets under 11
ounces....returns and volleys. I could get no weight on my service returns, and volleys lacked precision as the thing got knocked
around too much by hard hit balls. It's comfortable and certainly very maneuverable, as you expect with a racquet of this mass
and swingweight, has plenty of spin to apply to groundies, and is nicely finished.
Comments: This is a continuation of some earlier comments on the Tour Team. I have now tested the Tour Team on
clay and with my normal string. I did string it up with 23 kg whereas normally I would use 24 kg. The clay is always a little soft in
the beginning of the season so more power is needed to keep shots deep. I thought the weight would be a real factor on clay, but
this proved not to be the case. The swing weight felt great and really provided good control. Sometimes I even felt that I had the
wind at my back giving me extra ball speed. This stick performed nicely from all areas of the court. Volleys had good touch and
power when needed. Serves were a pleasure with both power and spin. There is nothing really bad to be said about this stick. I
still like the Tour a lot because of its extra flex, but this one is a real winner for those seeking a little lighter frame with a little
more power. Even though the Team is a little stiffer for more power, it is still very flexible with a rating of 60 RA. Prince now has
two new sticks in the winners circle.
Comments: I have never hit with a frame that has this solid a stringbed. The frame was strung at 58 pounds with
Prince Lightning XX (which I typically don't like) and played fantastic. Everything off the ground felt like the stringbed was gripping
the ball and dwell time was more than with anything I've ever hit with. Serving was good, returns are fine and at net, this racquet
shines. Don't be put off by the racquets low static weight either. It swings and plays as solidly as anything I've hit with. I have two
coming. This is a real winner from Prince, and I've never been a big fan of Prince mostly playing Volkl and recently Babolat.
Comments: I just got this new EXO3 Tour Team 100 a few days ago for testing. I was a bit worried about the specs
as they seem to be a bit on the light side. After hitting a few balls with this stick, I knew that this was one awesome work of art.
This stick is good from all areas of the court. It is very stable for such a light stick. The Tour Team is a little stiffer than the Tour.
It provides you with a little more power but still gives you very good control. Because of it's weight, the Tour Team is very
maneuverable and is a very good stick for volleying with. I still love the extra flex of the heavier Tour version. The Team is still
very arm friendly as it has a flex rating of 60 RA. I tested it with Prince Synthetic Gut with Duraflex 16, but I will be testing it with
my regular string Tecnifibre Multifeel 16 soon. What a nice addition to a great new line. I will update my results I as I continue my
testing. I have been testing the Tour Team on an indoor carpet, but will be going to clay next week.
