    hey i just have a question about this racket
    when i was reading the feedback about the prince ignite
    all the people lower than 5.0 said they hated it
    and all the people above said they like it
    whats sup with that?

    and can anyone compare them with the speedpro
    i cant deside which one to get
    which one has more spin and is better for an all courter

    I haven't played it myself, but it's probably due to the high swing weight and smaller head that the lower standard players struggle with it.

    Noticed you in Australia, Not interested in some exo graphite 100's are you?

    I played with the EXO3 Ignite 95 sq. in. and while it had a big big serve, my groundstrokes weren't as good as the EXO3 Graphite 93 sq. in.

    I have hit with both but I liked the speed pro better overall.


    Sadly, it still wasn't better than my PST's so I have to sell it.

    I really like the ignite, very solid from all areas of the court, but as for the feedback to it in the website, it seemed pretty inconsistent- plus I can't imagine how some one would struggle to find depth with it. When I let my doubles partner hit with it he did not care for the weight, but the usual weight of his raquet is like 10.9 ~ ozs. It is a players frame and if you are used to a slightly heavier frame, it is easy to pick up and play, my guess is the neg feedback is from people who don't hit raquets that are 12ozs +

    but i think its crazy though
    especially when there is a 5.0 patern

    I was not a big fan of the rebel, I felt like I really had to hit out to get depth, placement was nice--could have been the recoil strings too- I really hate them. Also I tend not too like closed string patterns so that was another strike in my book. I really like the ignite, and just wish the beam was 20mm, but I find it plays so well I can't complain, I am really digging mine!
