View Full Version : Similar to 03 Red

As I took my 03 red to get re-strung I notice a tiny hair sized crack in the frame. Well we sent it back to Prince hoping I can get it warrantied. Although this could take up to 4-6 weeks, and with season being in I can't wait, due to not having a spare. Being on my spring break I was curious as to if I may just look into a different racquet, since I have a week off to browse around and demo a few.
But onto my question. If I was to look into a new racquet and just sell the new one I get warrantied(if I do), then what are some possible good choice? I'm more of a aggressive baseline player, but this year I have decided to team up and play doubles with a good friend/ team mate. I really enjoyed my 03 red, but just curious since I have the spare time to look around. Thanks.

If you like the O3 red, I would look at the Speedport Red. It's a nice frame and may very well be your replacement frame if you get one.

It plays very stiff...and powerful.

It hurt my arm so i sold it.

How does the “Instinct” play compared to the O3 Red? I would imagine the O3 red is much stiffer.

On another topic, I’ve owned two O3 racquets and I think there nothing but “technocrap” which was created in a marketing dept.

I got a Instinct demo I am about to go play with in a few. Plan to demo the Yonex RQ 7 as well. If not I may just go back to the red, since my break will be up shortly.

I tried to new speedport the other day. I liked it to serve with and at net, but groundstrokes offered to much power it seemed. Provided lots of spin though, really helped me kick my serves more.

Going to try the Yonex tomorrow, but if it doesn't impress me to much looks like I'll be going with the Instinct. I really enjoyed my time on the court with it today.
