    Well i don't know if it's true or false but i saw on an japanese website that ther is going to be a Prince O3 Tour OVERSIZE !

    Here is the link : http://www.daiwaseiko.co.jp/tennis/products/rackets/o3/index04.html

    Seems like it'll be 27.5 in. long and even lighter than O3 Tour MP.

    If there is going to be OS, hopefully there will be a MS as well, something like 93 square inches, 12 oz. ... if anyone hears anything about a MS please post it, it's what I am waiting for ;)

    Yup, looks like the beam is wider and the head bigger than the regular MP.

    Has TW information about this O3 OS stick ?

    Many many years later, can anybody say something about this racquet? I'm very familiar with The Ozone Tour MP (and the POG OS) and I like extended racquets. How similar or different are these racquets?

    yes i'm familiar with it. it's beam is a tiny bit thicker and the head shape's virtually identical. also the nxg graphite oversize is right up there as well. the main difference is the .5 length and the flex. even though the listed RA is the the lower 60's the prince graphite oversize plays a bit firmer with more power. the extra weight of the pog oversize makes it hit through the ball a bit more. the nxg is a bit more powerful than the pog . the o3 tour oversize swings a bit faster but is low powered and more muted and i feel like i get more spin with the o3 tour oversize. each is a fun hit in their own way. you might even try to scrape up a prince tt warrior oversize and weight it up. that's a heck of a racquet when you mod it the right way

    power = 1 nxg 2 pog 3 o3tour
    stability = 1 pog 2 nxg 3 o3 tour
    spin = 1 o3 tour 2 pog os 3 nxg
    comfort = 1 o3tour 2 nxg 3 pog

    Thanks. I'll most likely extend it a bit more, close to 28 or at leat 27,75, plus add a lot of weight to the handle to make it heavier and HL. By your description, maybe add some tape for stability, if the extra weight on the handle doesn't help much.
    I'm currently using a PS 6.1 Classic Stretch. Works great for doubles, but for singles matches I may need some more power and spin. Even though the 28" 6.1 and my 27" POG OS both weight close to 365g, the POG is a bit sluggish for singles, maybe due to heavy SW, maybe the higher balance.

    A couple of months ago, I was given one of these to string. I immediately noticed the head was much narrower than my POG. Personally, I thought that it looked like it would play nicely. The hitting surface was longer than the POG, which helps when you set up too close to the ball (very common mistake), and it still has more width than a 100" racquet.

    Like I said, I was just stringing it, and have never actually hit one. Prince has made a lot of OS racquets with the same head shape/string pattern as the POG, but this isn't one.
