    The specs on the ozone pro tour look quite good. The combo of the speed ports and the 18x20 string pattern could be a great combination.

    it seems prince has also made a new o3 white that has a weight similar to the pdr called the o3 speedport pro white. but it has a 18/19 string pattern which is a little weird...

    A number of pro players requested the denser string pattern.... more control and less trampolining effect I understand.

    Well, the pure storms are so last year. They should be doing something for this year. They always wait till everyone else makes their racquets. They release them the latest.

    My coach did, hit with it a few days. He seems to prefer earlier Prince models.

    was thinking the same thing. however, previous o-port racquets haven't felt right so not holding my breath

    I got the Tour and the Pro Tour, SP Whites from my Prince contact. They are all good, but not for me.

    I had the same experience as well. the only racket which was close of the o3 tour 95.

    However, i think the addition of the 18x20 patterns to the racket line might change a lot of people's minds including mine. I will have to see, but I am hoping for more stability and feel and less of a trampoline effect.

    The combination of the Ozone pro tour(18x20) with some poly is very enticing.

    Just not a big fan of these racquets, tried the speedport tour a bit, first impression was good but after that it was terrible

    I dunno, just never got used to how these racquets swing, though the ozone pro tour looks as if it could be good

    I think between a string pattern that's more dense , and some poly strings, the new Ozone Tour will feel pretty nice. I didn't care for my O3 Tour mids at first, but with a little lead tape and experimentation with strings, they took my game to a new level.
