    Im looking for a new racquet and im not sure what to buy. I dont want to buy a racquet that is about to be replaced or cheapened. Does anyone know if any major company is releasing a new line in the near future? Im most interested if the 03 Tour MP will drop in price.

    you need to join a demo program to decide which racket would be best for you to own.

    Gotta love the attitude: "...or cheapened" -Would it make a difference what you payed for the stick?

    yep...price shouldnt matter unless you got it at walmart or target....

    if you know your stores pretty well, you should be able to get 90% of the tennis rackets out for around $130

    If you like Prince, check out the Air Freak. The paint scheme is a little funky, but it's easy to hit with and if you're going to play doub's, it's got pop and maneuverability on its side. I'm not too wild about the O3 Tour, but the Freak may fit your bill really well and they're not priced into the stratosphere.

    OK Jr. - The weight is 10.6 oz., even balance ,silver with square red holes v/s the round, same red color. The racquet will sell for $249 retail ouch ! I really like the old red balance better, more head light, this stick feels heavier than the previous version, feel almost sluggish, but that's MO.
