    Coria is currently using the Prince O3 Tour, the specifications for which are not yet set. It's supposed to be ready for retail in a couple months.

    I know at the French he was still using the black experimental frames so it is possible that he was using those still. And he uses a MP frame. I believe it is 100 sq. in.

    but his current racquet is definitely 100 right? does anyone know the specs of the 03 tour? like the flex and head lightness?

    Thomas Martinez has answered the question of what head size Coria is using. Coria was never using a OS since he's been in the upper level of the circuit and his current headsize is probably close to OS but is a MP, probably 100 sq.in. Post a thread or search in the 'Racquets' section to get the specs of the O3 Tour.

    You're right. If it looks more like a 100 sq.in head size to you, it is the Graphite Longbody whose midplus is that headsize.

    I have not really used these two frames. Try to search for threads on these two racquets in the 'Racquets' section and if you still want more info, post a thread in that section.

    I hear Coria was playing with a POG Longbody--100 si head, 28in long. It's kind of a rare ****--TW might have a few left from their special order. I'll bet that new stick has similar specs...

    Yeah Dude--that stands for Prince Original Graphite. It was like the Pure Drive of the early 80s. My grandmother, who was a total badass tennis player, was the first person in town to have one in 1981. That was before they made real grannysticks--when even grandmothers had to play with "player's racquets" like the good old POG.
