    I was browsing on TW, and I saw the Prince EXO3 Tour 100 with a stiffness of 52! I was surprised because lowest stiffness ratings I have seen have been in the high 50s for modern, currently produced players rackets

    I was wondering if any one has tried this stick out, and if it plays as soft as the specs say.

    I've tried the 18x20 the last two days and it is very soft on the arm although it didn't feel as much of a noodle as some other frames I've tried like a Pacific or Fischer.

    Not all racquets with low stiffness are actually arm-friendly.

    But EXO3 Tour definitely is. Arguably the most arm-friendly racquet on the market.

    I have Vantage Bastcores with 45 RA and 49RA. But the Prince is more arm-friendly than the Vantage.

    I agree with this. Several rackets with lower stiffness ratings have caused me arm problems, but not the EXO3 Tour 16 x 18.

    Yes, I'd say the EXO3 Tour (16 x 18 version) plays as soft as the specs indicate. I think it's a nice stick, but I found the feel of the racket to be odd. I probably could get used to it, though. It is a very flexible feeling racket in my opinion.
