Great to see reviews for rackets that ordinary humans can play with!

Those look enormous, almost exaggerated. I've never hit with a racquet that large, I'd like to try them though.

Hi Chris/Britney:
Everyone in the video really hit well with the Prince Silver. You've mentioned in the review that you're really impressed with the touch of the racquet. i was wondering how does it compare with your normal control oriented sticks?

I am very curious as to that as well. I have never seen them give a racquet like this such high marks! Other reviews by different people have not been as glowing in terms of control. I live outside the U.S. so i will need to get a lot of feedback if i order one. I am getting older but, the last thing i want is to be hitting the back fence all the time.

I'm really curious what they strung the racquets with and at what tension. In the video, it didn't seem like they were holding back very much on their swings!

Sorry for the late response here.

Yes, as strange as it is for me to admit, I really, really like the EXO3 Silver. I just played some dubs with it today and I was loving it. I can hit the snot out of the ball with that racquet and I don't feel like I have to hold back.

I love the touch around net. There is so much grab from the stringbed that I can hit really nice angle volleys and get lots of slice on the ball.

In singles, I can rally consistently with it, generate lots of spin and absolutely spank the ball when given the opportunity. I like to hit a lot of drop shots when I play and find all the touch I need with this racquet. It really does pocket the ball exceptionally well.

I know a racquet like this shouldn't offer that kind of feel, but this one does. I can't explain why it is there when I look at the specs, it just is.

As for the string we used, we just went with Prince Premier LT 16. For the video we grabbed one straight from demo stock (same string) and our hitter. Both strung at mid plus 2lbs.

I'm going to try a poly in this racquet next week to see how it plays.

Chris, TW

Chris, I tried the racquet for the first time today, strung with MSV Focus Hex at 65 pounds. I agree with everything you say here and in your video review. I would normally never even think of a racquet like this but I also could take a nice cut at the ball and it landed nicely in with lots of pace and spin. Great touch at net. And a nice platform for customization. For those who would never think of trying a racquet like this, check this one out! Thanks for the string info too, Chris.

Is there a way to view the best reviewed racquets sorted from the best to worst, etc or the only way is to see all the reviews?

Best regards!
