Technologies

O3: O3 Technology Uses O-Ports to provide total string freedom. Increases sweet spot size by 54% without increasing the size or length of the racquet or changing the weight or string tension. Also generates a livelier response across the entire string bed, and dramatically improves play at all levels. O-Ports reduce drag, producing faster swing speeds and increases power from anywhere on the court.

TUNGSTEN TRIPLE THREAT: Tungsten is a strong, dense metal, used here to fortify the Triple Braid system, improving stability for more power and precision. Triple Braid is a weighting system that promotes balance and stability: woven titanium, copper, and carbon are placed in three critical racquet locations: 10 o’clock, 2 o’clock, and at the bottom of the handle. Benefits include an expanded sweet spot with less shock to the arm.

I am a high school sophomore. I made the varsity team

I am a high school sophomore. I made the varsity team as a freshman though, using the o3 Royal took a little getting use to. I had to slightly adjust my game to adjust to a more powerful racquet, after only a week or two the racquet was hitting fine and I had no problems putting on plenty of topspin. Once you get use to the racquet and learn to control it, it will become a major weapon.

I bought this as an alternative back up to my Spectrum

I bought this as an alternative back up to my Spectrum hybrid (which I love for it's light headedness, control & quick swing). The O3 Blue is slightly head heavier but I use it for mixed doubles or singles when playing against = rated players. Allows me more control & power without over hitting but I do notice the difference in head weight. My serves are more powerful & easier to spin serve & slice volleys. But I resort to the Spectrum when playing against heavier hitting players so I can get quicker swings. All in all I find this a great 2nd racquet especially for the price paid!

First impression is too much power for me. I have not

First impression is too much power for me. I have not restrung and that may change everything. Going from a Prince Triple Threat at 62lbs to the O3 Blue, my drop shots over the net were going 4-5 feet beyond where I expected, and I had to be real easy on my deep shots to not shoot past the baseline. Putting spin on the ball seemed difficult. My serves were more powerful than ever and as accurate as my old racket. I will write an update when I restring at the recommended max of 63lbs.

I am a high school junior and this racquet is taking me a while to get used to. It provides much more power then I am used to. I have to change my game completely as the strings that come with the racquet have a lot more cut on the ball. I feel that once I get used to this racquet though it will be an awesome one to play with.

First of all, I demoed this racquet after researching

First of all, I demoed this racquet after researching racquets that I thought fit my game. As soon as I demoed the racquet, I knew it was the one for me. I played a match with it and won. The ball pops off the strings better than any other racquet I have used in the past. I have more power, control, and topspin than ever. I am a big net player and I have great control at the net, even though this is an oversized racquet. I did buy a 4-3/8 after using a 4-1/2 grip forever. It fits me better and I don't have the elbow issues I have had in the past. It was pre-strung when I bought it and it was perfect. I bought the racquet before I even returned the demo.

I started playing with this racquet a month ago. It is very easy to get used to. I practiced with my high school team....and made varsity as a sophomore. This racquet improves your strokes and helps you learn how to play better.
