coming May is speed port black with silver around holes that has same power rating of 900 as Shark hybrid as replacement,same spec.
Coming July speed port gold, color same as O3 tour would be replacement for O3 tour,same spec. O3 white is not changing till next year. no pictures yet. but dealers are advised to sell the inventory of O3 tour and Shark hybrid.

hahahahahahha agreed, im using the O3 white now. I've read though in one of the other posts that the speedport black is supposed to be in between the O3 white and the O3 tour. So would it really have the same specs as the hybrid shark? I've always thought that the shark was somewhere between O3 red and O3 white

Shark's mid plus power rating is 900, O3 white is 1000 and O3 tour is 800.

Shark's mid plus power rating is 900, O3 white is 1000 and O3 tour is 800.

Which is strange because i felt the Shark's power was considerably more than the white's. I also thought the o3 tour mp was less powerful than the o3 hybrid tour 16x18 and the O3ht is rated lower on power.

I hit with the new Speedport Black and the Speedport Orange last week. I am a Prince Player and currently use the O3Tour. The Black has a much wider beam and is a bit of a tweener. The Orange, what you call Gold, feels very solid and has a slighty wider beam than the O3Tour. Of course as a demo, it was only strung with syn gut which is a string not to my liking. I've have to get one and restring with PolyStar Energy to feel the spin. It moves through the air very fast.

last Sunday Prince had a demo show in town, I did not attend but the two racquets were shown to public but not demoed. the person attending said the black one has the option to have heavy or light grommets as means of custom the weight. was the gold(orange) same weight as the tour?(11.7) and black being same weight as shark hybrid(11.2)?

The Orange felt heavier, the black felt lighter than the O3Tour.

IMO the Orange won't be a replacement for the O3 Tour, because the wider beam and also because that in the oficial web site (Princetennis.com), they show a "New" model, as they called it, the O3 Tour Lite, with 280g unstrung. Anyway, just in case, I'm gonna to buy more 18 O3 Tour Mid Plus.
