This has come up in previous threads, but I'd like to hear from posters who have used this frame. It seems to be much smaller than a 95, and possibly smaller than a 93. I'm only basing this on pictures, but compare it to any other 95 frame and it looks pretty obvious. Is Prince using the Head/Prestige measuring process? Some posters have mentioned that it seems sluggish. A smaller head size would contribute to that. Any opinions?

I measured it up to my Pro Tour 630. Basically spot on, including the drill pattern it seems. Anyway, I think it's a 95. I don't think it's sluggish either because I'm used to 12+oz frames and I think the O ports helps swing speed a tiny bit.

a smaller headsize makes it slower? now that's interesting logic, isn't it.

i guess i had no idea about racquets *sorry, i have had different experiences than you apparently have*

Maybe I interpretted sluggish differently - the ball coming off the stringbed.

That depends on the string and tension that's in the frame. I think the ball has some pop coming off of the Rebel; I actually have to string higher now because the ball just flies, even with a lot of spin.

I have a Prince Rebel.

I'm used to racquets that are 12.0 oz.

This racquet is def a 95, compared to say a K90 or a KPS88. As far as swinging sluggish. YES! YES! YES! There is a big dude 6'3 at my club and he is as strong as an ox. He enjoys the frame because it tames his swing. LOL.

I should write a review, but I'm in denial that I'm still using this racquet. Hopefully I can change it with a string set up or steroids.

That is all.. thanks

I put the rebel 95 side by side with the pc600, liquidmetal prestige, and flexpoint prestige mid's and the rebel is slightly larger

It's definitely not smaller than 95. I actually think it swings pretty quickly...and I've already added 8 grams of lead at 3 and 9...and thinking of adding more!
