    Between the baseline and netcord.
    Dead link. Doubtful that Prince can find a competitive edge in the current market.

    Think your totally wrong.....Prince just got out of bankruptcy and has a global footprint.......with the right management they will be fine. Their stuff is popular, Prince not going anywhere.

    I hope that you are right, I don't particularly care for their racquets, but I love their shoes.

    i can't wait. i myself found nothing wrong with the feel of the ports, having used the original white throughout highschool, but aesthetically, the advent of O-ports was so polarizing to tennis players, and prince was eager to continue with new iterations without satisfying prince users who've grown accustomed to prince's feel. plus, once the initial wave of o/speed ports came out, the appeal seemed to wear off, they eventually retrofitted most of their racquet lines, steeped with heritage, with ports.

    a new iteration of solid prince sticks sound pretty good.

    I would love to see Prince come out with a line of racquets without the ports. They are going to have to be good if they want to compete with top brands. I wonder if they are going to try and create racquets that emphasize on spin like Babolat or flat hitters like Head.
