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. The extra half-inch of length combines nicely with the Oversize headsize to produce a racquet that feels well balanced and proportioned. This one 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.
