    I strung one up for a friend a week ago and I noticed that the thing has like 5 grommets total. I was wondering how this works. Anyone know?

    I've heard the More Attack is the stiffest racquet ever put on the market with an RA of 82 or something. I don't know if that's true, though.

    Really? TW racquet finder said like 65. It is quite light. My real intention was to ask if this racquet can go w/o grommets, why don't all racquets?

    http://www.racquetfinder.com/FMPro?...wMax=10.9&swMin=315&swMax=331&fMin=60&fMax=70

    And no its the 1050.

    the prince more series in general had a grommetless design scheme for more "direct string contact". This was supposed to enhance feel. I think they abandoned the concept bc, at least for me i found more string breaking bc of it. The more attack feels very stiff to me, compared to my old main racquet, the more response.

    the more frames touted increased feel from the grommetless design, but they also had a really awful dampened air handle which sucked all the feel right out. some also experienced increased string breaks and "keyholing" where the string started to indent into the frame near some grommets.

    the o3 frames are really the evolution of the more frames. the more frames were the first prince frames where each half of the frame was molded independently, then the two sides were fused to create the integrated holes without drilling. The o-ports use the same concept, just bigger holes (drilling these huge holes into a premolded frame probably wouldn't work for stability reasons).

    The Prince Graphite originally came without grommets, so the More series was just a rehash in some respects.

    I see. I never heard of the more series before my friend's racquet.

    So these grommetless racquets are better at breaking strings?
