i had a chance to hold this in my hands last night.

i can't talk about who has it or where it is from, but here are the pictures.

if it has been posted before, sorry for the double post..

weights about 13.5 oz.

strings 18 x 20

has the big holes on the side

seems to look like the 93 POG

watched the pro hit it and it sounded awesome in doors, but everything this guy hits sounds amazing.

wow, that looks great...but 13.5oz? that's pretty hefty...if it's one of the new exo3 graphites that are coming out, then why does it have an 18x20 pattern? i thought they had 16x18 patterns in both the 93 and 100?

Wow...13.5 is heavy and 18x20 in a head that size is very dense. The only thing that I can think is that this may be a late edition to the 2009 line...maybe a "tour" version, or something of sorts.

phamster,

Interesting. I saw Adam Feeney, one of the Aussie pros on the Futures tour, using what looked to be the exact same racquet just last month. Only difference is, I could have sworn his was a 16 mains.

Prince floats variations on prototypes commonly, some reach production and some don't.

Remember as well that the pro hitting with it may have had it set to his specs which does not exactly mean that this will be the stock specs on the shelf. I highly doubt they are shooting for a 13.5 ounce stock frame. 18X20 at that weight sounds more like a speedport NXG mid.

Yeah, my NXG mids weigh in at around 13 oz. with nothing more than an overgrip added them. That line of frames had that grommet-free design that they used right before the O3's came along. Dense string pattern, too. I'd love to try one of these as long as the flex is around 60.
