Comments: Definitely a great racquet. I've been around the block with many a racquet, from the Classic Prestige, to
the Pure Drive, to the PS85 to PS95, to Dunlop Aerogel 200 to Pure Drive Roddick to Head Speed Pro to the Wilson Steam 99s...yet
somehow along my journey I never swung with the Prince Original Graphite. What a mistake that was! This 100 inch racquet is the
perfect racquet for the modern game. It has that solid feel that many modern racquets lack, but the power level is still there. It can
certainly hold its own against the ever popular "tweener" racquets out there. My only complaint is that I wish it came with a leather
grip, but truth be told, I kinda like the one that came with it! Definitely a must demo for any 4.0+ player out there. I love it in
stock form, but there is certainly opportunities to modify this racket to suit any style of play.
Comments: Amazing frame in all respects! As an ex serve and volleyer, and double handed 4.5 player at the age of
50, I I believe this is a super control-oriented racquet with the necessary pop when needed in a forgiving frame. I waved goodbye
to my Prestige Pros as there were no second thoughts after a week's test drive. Sometimes technology reaches it's best and I
believe that Prince finally got that. Pity that the 100 does not come with a leather grip as the 107. A must demo.
Comments: Great racquet for the 40 plus player with developed strokes. I have tried to love the more modern type
frames but always miss the feel of these more old school sticks. I love the flex (although clearly stiffer than the original 107 and
90 graphite variants). I feel like I can swing away and still hit with great prescision. I do miss the more modern type players
frames on serves but I feel the tradeoff in consistency and accuracy is worth it.
Comments: Prince should be commended for introducing a modernized version of a real classic. For those of us
that grew up using continental grips and flat strokes, this stick is a dream and the increased head size, generous sweet spot and
overall comfort of the pure graphite frame are real plusses.
Comments: This "open player" is love at fist sight! The weight distribution is improved from the exo, and I pulled a
teaspoon of magic from it. What more can I say! Love the price. Hit it with your heart!
Comments: I'm a 4.5 baseline counterpuncher. This racquet feels more modern than I expected. I've been looking
for a new racquet for months now, and I've decided on this one. I'm choosing it over the Wilson Blade 98S, 6.1 and Prostaff 95S,
and Babolat Pure Control Tour. I feel like It can do everything -- plenty of spin, hard flat shots, and it feels light but super stable.
Check it out.
Comments: I've been a POG Mid and OS user since the '87 4-stripe and this PCG-100 is a modern evolution of that
lineage. It's a fast feeling stick most suitable for all courters. I felt it played stiffer than it is listed (62), it felt more like a 65-66. As
others said, it is a very predictable stick in all respects and for old-skoolers it offers that extra bit of margin. It was heavy enough
for me but others may need lead to cope with the biggest hitters. Kudos for retaining the classic OS oval shape in a MP. I also felt
the frame's edges were fractionally squarer and less curved than recent iterations of the Mid and OS, which I liked for its enhanced
classic boxy feel.
Comments: If you want superior directional control and rock solid swing stability, this is the best racquet you'll
find. The power output is almost entirely dictated by your swing speed and follow-through. Be aware that the "personality" of
this frame can change dramatically with different string tensions and string types. String it too tight, and it turns into a wooden
paddle. Sting it too lose, and it's becomes a ball launcher. I recommend stringing it in the mid-range with a soft synthetic gut.
Once you have it tuned to your specifications, you'll never find a better racquet.
Comments: Love this racquet. Solid feel from every where on the court. Lots of control and power is there if you
want it to be. All court players will appreciate this racket. Predictable in all aspects!
Comments: Played my first match with this racquet today, and loved it. If you're familiar with the POG 93, this is
essentially a more forgiving version. More stable, more predictable but much faster than the POG OS. Overall, a really nice
upgrade. Could hit super spinny shots as well as flat lazers and the slice came a little easier. My only concern is that it's a little
light in stock form. I'd like to put some lead under the buttcap but it doesn't look like the buttcap is removable on these new
Comments: Just demoed this racquet for one week and bought one. I am very impressed, great predictability on
ground strokes and serves, it puts the ball where you intended and my serves have a bit of added pop and spin. Simply put -- on
groundstrokes, serves, volleys this racquet delivers what you ask of it as far as placement, pop or spin. Thank you Prince, this 100
version of the classic POG was long overdue!
Comments: Chris was right when he said this frame felt very familiar when he hit with it. From the first time I used
this frame, I felt comfortable in how it played. Easy to swing fast and stable, firm but not overly harsh, spinny but not overly so.
Very old school as you get out what you put in with this type of frame. If you want a purist type of graphite frame, this is it.
from an Aeropro Drive, I'll miss the extra pop and spin, but I'll gain more confidence in swinging out and going for more of my
