    I think some of the Prince racquets look awesome tbh and also I think they have an acquired feel, kinda like beer is an acquired taste. I played with one Prince before (i think it was called the hornet midplus) and thought it was terrible never again did I want to wield a Prince. A Prince racquet that has caught my attention though is the EXO3 Ignite, and also the EXO3 Tour (16X18 ). How would these sticks compare to the PSTGT?

    I switched to the EXO3 Tour recently. I love the frame. When first demoing it even though I could tell I hit great with it the feel was a little unusual in that it was so muted. Now it just feels super solid and comfortable to me. IMO if you have a reasonably fast swing this stick plays best with a hybrid of low tension (upper 40's-51) poly mains and syn-guy crosses around 54-56.

    You might find it heavy coming from Pure Storm Team though.

    I think op plays with Pure Storm Tour so it wouldn't be too heavy for him at all.

    I will never hit with a Prince that has rubber grommet inserts again. The feel is disgusting, worst than i could ever imagine.

    I have the exo3 ignite and have tried the pstgt and the ignite doesn't have as much of the pocketing feel as other princes do.
    Ignite pro's-
    plowthrough (through the roof)
    lots of spin
    just enough power
    just enough of a sweetspot
    comfort

    the pstgt has a bigger sweetspot and spin but the plowthrough and comfort go to the ignite
