O3 Speedport Tour Graphite OS

box shaped beam
uneven beam now: the hoop will be around 3-5mm wider to make room for speedports
crossbar stablizer
same weight and balance
pure graphite
no dampener like other o3 models--good ol hard grommets at throat

Somethign like dat?

Would this be the much-touted racquet being developed for blake? Or am I very very wrong there?

Alafter is just guessing what it is like. We have absolutely no idea like usual;)

Sounds good. Still not sure if I'd buy another Prince racquet...

They're insulting the POG tradition with speedports.

But, who knows? Could be great.

Just hope they don't stop making the standard POG.

putting speedports on the POG line will disgrace its name. but i would swing it for fun.

To be considered a POG, it has to have a straight beam and the same can't be thicker that 19mm... Btw, that racquet exists already; it's the Diablo Tour MP.

Prince has to be the most marketing oriented racquet manufacture in the world. They constantly come out with new and improve racquets every year.

I mistakenly bought into this “technocrap” concept and purchased an O3 White and O3 Red racquet. They have very little feel and too much power. Furthermore, they are so stiff that they hurt your arm.

The POG was and is a good stick,. Most of their new stuff is technocrap.

The Tour Diablo Mid could be seen as an update to the POG Mid. But, the Tour Diablo MP is way to light to be a considered an update to the POG OS (plus it's 7 sq inches smaller.)

eh.... some people agree and some don't. I thought it was a great racquet but then again i've never hit with the POG

I'm not saying the MP isn't a great racquet, I'm just saying that given it's specs, it really couldn't be a replacement for the POG OS, the way a Diablo Mid could replace a POG mid.

This is probably true, but you're talking to a wilson guy :p

The hell with speed holes...

Keep that ***** green and 19mm thick and introduce a dense pattern version instead.

A POG midplus (98 or 100 sq inches) would be great. 16 x 19 pattern, around 12.1 oz, 6 or 7 pts headlight, SW 325-330, flex 63.

And does anyone know what size the head is on my 4 Stripe orig.

A grommetless POG would be kinda nice. Update the current one, make it a bit heavier, bit more power and a nice leather grip... I'd bite :-D

All they need to do with the damn POG is maybe, maybe a comestic update...but, they need to make the handle longer for two-handers. That's it!

Sounds like a leaded NXG with a leather grip.

I hope they come out with 3 versions like the NXG- mid, MP and OS.

hit with one, and i really like it :)

Perhaps. Definitely doesn't look like it though. The NXG mid (92 SI) has a very strange head shape although it hits really nicely. I have 2 of them :-D

I'd like to see a 27", 98-100 sq/in head racket with all the same specs as the POG OS. Maybe a little more HL but that's just me. And the traditional black with green but with a little more flash. I've never personally tried the longbody but I've been told a cut down longbody just isn't the same.

A "new version" of the POG is not possible, because the 'O' in POG stands for ORIGINAL.

Pfft that O in POG was ruined years ago anyway.

Apart from the addition of the grommets and different cosmetics, has the POG changed over the years?
I honestly have no idea.

Remember the 1st POG had no grommets an d a leather grip. The stabilizer bar is different.

Yeah it has changed. The new one's are a lot lighter. Although lead can substitue, it can't subsitute that old feel.
