    Just wondering if any Prince experts would know if there are actually 2 versions of this racket? Ie, a US version and an Asian version? And how to tell these 2 versions apart? My impression was that only Wilson made rackets with different specs for different markets. Any info would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

    Japanese rebel 95 introduced on Nov. 08.
    Us version introduced on Feb. 09.

    Weight : 310g (Asian/Japanese version) VS 330g (US version)
    Balance: 31.5mm (Asian/Japanese version) VS 30.0mm (US version)

    Asian version has a slightly different paint job.
    Asian version of EXO3 rackets was available around March in Asia but the distributors decide whether they will import Asian version or US version.
    I heard that Singapore distributor choose US version instead of Asian version.
    Also some distributor only import small grip size (4 1/4 and 4 3/8).

    I bought couple of Asian rebel 95 and expect to receive it next week:)

    if Singapore distributor decided to import US version, the stock rebel 95 comes with a string hole. I heard someone who lives in Singapore and bought extra string port or string hole from US store.

    Only Asian/Japanese exo3 comes with both string hole and string port inserts.
