Do the prince speedport black color inserts come in the string hole inserts, it looks like they only come in the port inserts........would appreciated a way to get the ones with the hole


if not how well does the black hit with the port inserts, what are the major differences. like power control ect

hey, im starting to love my 3 blacks! i find the ports to be better as you get the bigger sweetspot, and a more solid and dampened feel for sure. the holes are good, put make such a pingy sound that travels back through the arm, some say its feel, but it feels like the thing is cracked! i found that having the holes strung with a softer string does help with this, but love polys. its been said that the ports dont other much feel, rubbish, u get feel and the big sweetspot, if u need a bit more feel, string in a sodt string and a hybrid. also, the strings move a little more in the ports, not a problem thou. as for the colours, i would imagine they will do them in ports and holes and sell them together. the bryan brothers are advertised as using the holes and have the coloured inserts. i want the tour orange coloured one, my own pj!

so its gonna be more powerfull cause the sweetspot, but how much will the controll be altered

how do you hit...with lots of spin, or what cause i use an extreme wetern forehand, semi-extreme eastern one handed backhand, and extreme eastern serve

i hit with a western forehand, 2 handed backhand with a very flat 1st serve, topspin or slice second. i would not say its more powerfull with the ports, just a wider sweetspot. stringing a little tighter tames the power. im thinking of maybe mixing the ports, inserts at top maybe?

I just got done A/B'ing one with all Speedports and one with stringports only in the sides (I knew I didn't like all stringports). I still really didn't care for the stringports. I think it's the stiffness of the racquet for me. With the speedports, I don't notice it, but with the firmer stringbed of the stringports I do. I love it with the speedports.

Do you like the PORTS (original o3) or the HOLES (grommets)
