I am finding that the o3 white is lacking pop on serves much like the o3 tour mp. Is anyone else finding the same thing with the o3 racquets? Perhaps it's the length of the racquet which is the problem. I am used to the TT Hornet mp which is a half inch longer.

IMO, that frame is too light to serve flat bombs with in stock form. Try it with some extra mass at 3&9 and in the handle...

The funny thing is that I only added an ounce to the buttcap of my hornet, still making it lighter than the o3 white, but served much bigger with the hornet.

I'd agree, to get pop you have to swing from the rafters, hard, really hard..

Have hit with both and tend to agree, I think the difference comes in the stiffness and the extra legth, as I had an even bigger problem with the Shark.

the extralength O3 white that sharapova uses can serve hugh, just ask her.
