View Full Version : Is the Prince O3 Speedport Black a good racquet to learn tennis with?

I've only started playing tennis recently (few months ago) and was just wondering if the Prince SP Black would be a suitable learning racquet? Because that just happens to be the only racquet I own at the moment that is in my correct grip size.

It is strung with Prince Synthetic Gut 17 Gauge at 60 lbs (both mains and crosses) and uses a rubberband dampener. It uses the string hole insert.

Should I continue to learn with it or get a different racquet? What do you guys think? Oh and I don't get tennis lessons or anything, just watch the videos by fuzzyyellowballs and hit around with friends who are like me.

Also seeing as I don't have any experience I don't know what to "look for" in a racquet. Thanks

it's a perfectly fine racquet to learn with. no need to buy another racquet.

I started with one of these... You'll do just fine with it! I'd still be using it if I didn't smash it...
