View Full Version : Advice: Babolat GT LTD vs Prince EX03 Tour 100

I have demoed and narrowed to 2 racquets that i like, but I am torn between GT LTD and Tour 100.
I have been using Pure Drive, but it gave me tennis elbow recently, so I decided to go with a softer racquet.

The Prince has a better feel, but a tad too powerful and less control. The Babolat is a little mute, great control but slightly under power.

I am leaning toward the Babolat for its control but I can hit the Prince much deeper from baseline. Any advice?

If I get the Babolat, what tension should I start with (I will go Hybrid, Klip Natural Gut main and poly cross)? I used full poly with my Pure Drive at 52/52.

I think I am somewhere between a 3.5 to 4. TIA

If you string the PSLGT on the lower side, something like 50 lbs, it still retains all the control but gives more power to the frame and seems to help out a lot with spin as well. I use a multi fullbed at 50m/48c and do just fine with the PSLGT. Never hit with that Prince yet so can't say anything about it.
