    I think that the good news is that those racquets didn't all turn into pumpkins at the stroke of midnight on the day that Prince discontinued them. Keep an eye out and you ought to be able to score a couple of decent frames in the 2nd hand market for low dough.

    I demoed an O3 Hybrid Spectrum and also liked it. I ended up getting a Dunlop 500 Tour because it felt a little more solid than the Spectrum, and I liked the slightly higher swingweight. I'm happy with that choice.
