I've just now hit with the O3 tour Mid (funny their 95" is mid). It looked cool, but the 'wow' factor when playing with it was not there. My shots lacked the 'buttery' feel and it felt too powerful for me, almost like a trampoline (it was strung at 60#). My normal playing racquet is the RDX500. I was just wondering if it has lost its appeal in the playtesting world or if people are starting to realize it's gimmicky-ness...

Prince's poster boys, Blake and Coria, don't play with o3's (see Coria at the South American tourneys), which begs the question....is this another tech fad (like Wilson Rollers or PowerHoles)? I realize that o3 works best for game-improvement, wider-bodied frames, where power over feel is desired.

is o3 hybrid hornet better or worse that w4 which i played and has crisp feel and response. Blend of power and control for both. And people said o3 lacks power and spin. And other things as well. Which one?

I don't quite understand your question...

Actually, Coria does play an 03 Tour. I've strung quite a few for him.

For spring break, I was in Acapulco and saw him play with an all black frame with a stabilizer bar, maybe a POG?
