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'm a beginner player, I love this one at the first sight. I couldn't wait to play when I got the racket. It's slightly bigger than what I expected. But that's not problem at all, it works for me perfectly, because I want power that would surprise my friends as a beginner.

This is actually our second racket of this exact model.

This is actually our second racket of this exact model. We have many similar over-sized rackets from other major manufactures but this is by far the best. This racket feels very soft on impact so better on the arm/elbow, and the ball feels more powerful coming off the racket. It just gives us the 'oomph' feeling and sound we don't get from other rackets. We have to get another one so I get to use it as my daughter who plays on her high school varsity team also favorite this model. As far as I can tell, this racket was priced a lot higher when new few years ago, but the price has dropped so much it's a great buy now. BTW, I string my own rackets so when the stock string broke, I put Wilson NXT Tour 17 string on this racket, and we were amazed. The stock string came with this racket was decent, but with Wilson NXT Tour 17, it plays almost like a dream! Interestingly when I put the same string on our other rackets, we didn't feel this much improvement. Somehow this Prince OS3 Silver racket matches this Wilson NXT Tour 17 string much better than others.

O3 Silver is an excellent choice for a player desiring

O3 Silver is an excellent choice for a player desiring more power. The head is 5 points head heavy and under 10 ounces. I'm an early 30s female playing recreational tennis, and this racquet makes me feel like a pro. 27.75 in length helps me cover the court. A short stroke suffices with most shots. Lightweight frame, lively at impact. The ball pops off the face with excellent feel. I'm a bit slow with my backhand, and the O3 Silver allows for the late shot with pace. I recommend this racquet to older players, juniors, and players seeking more power.

Love the O3 Silver. I have two of them and am in the process to purchase another one with a little smaller grip. As Florida is very hot in the summer, keeping a good grip has been difficult and a smaller grip might just work.

I am always hungry for more power from my racquet and so I decided to try this one out. It has great control for a racquet with such a large head size. It is very lightweight and surprisingly easy to maneuver even at the net. In fact my volleys improved with this racquet. It gives amazing pop to my serves and I would hit 2 or 3 aces in every serve game. Excellent for back hand shots and particularly for shots where your opponent has hit a winner and you are barely able to reach the ball. With this racquet I could turn the tables in many rallies. On the forehand you have to generate your own speed later in the swing and as a result I could hit the tough shots with amazing speed and accuracy but could not kill the loose shots that my opponent barely lobbed over the net.

If you like to take the ball early from the baseline, this could be the racquet for you. My two-handed backhand went from decent to great with the O3 Silver. The depth and angle of my groundstrokes improved tremendously. The only problem is that short balls from your opponent may be hard to keep in the court due to the racquet's extreme power. I had to string it up 4 lbs to reduce the power a little, which gave me improved spin and control.

This racquet is great! The spin potential, especially on slices is impressive. It seems that no matter where on the head you hit the ball, it goes right where you want it. I myself have a medium length stroke and even though it has a recommended short swing style, this racquet excels in every category. The only complaint I must say is that when you get those real tempting high, slow lobs near the net, the ball sometimes goes long; 14 or 1500 power rating would have been ideal. Otherwise, great racquet! Demo it.

Good racquet

"Good racquet but not for a player that can generate a lot of their own power. I maxed out the tension @ 67 lbs for control with 17g for spin, and still too much power. I have to take a lot off my swing just to keep it right on the baseline. Very comfortable though...great for someone looking to feel like their swinging at air and then watching a ball shoot across court. Again, a racquet not for me since I like to hear and feel it. It looks and feels big and bulky in my hand and I'm 5'10, 180. So if you're a small person, it might feel EXTRA Oversize for you. I've always played PRINCE, and I'll continue to stick with them but I'll probably sell my Silver and check the Red or Tour o3 out "

Having read a lot of the reviews on this frame, I was surprised to find that players who complained about too much power did not mention that they may not have tried to add more topspin to their shots. I moved to this frame, (with some extra weight under the grip), knowing I would have to add more topspin. Now all the baseline groundstrokes that I hit (cleanly) drop deep into my opponents backcourt. The wide string spacing makes it much easier to put spin (of any kind) on the ball, and the larger sweet spot makes it easy to place the ball.

Expensive but this racquet definitely helps to improve

Expensive but this racquet definitely helps to improve your game. My game improved drastically, so what they say about its forgiveness is true. Positive racquet feel, without the banging impact when you hit a ball, very dampened. I have a short stroke and this racquet it helps with reach and response, very easy to control. Solid POP on contact and if you get too over zealous you can really launch the balls. I highly recommend this racquet.
