    Overall

    In terms of view all 3 Companies have manufactured amazing products and rackets such as the pog and the O port generation-prince...The prestige/radical/speed/extreme/instinct 10 year lineups and the past Dunlop rackets such as the 200d and the bio lineup..

    Head-Great Variety of rackets from power to control.

    Prince- Focus is mainly on control and speed but with the better player's attribute they can generate great power.

    Dunlop- More control oriented rackets I believe


    I wanted to know which of these 3 do you think have been the leaders in the tennis game from these 3 options.

    And point out they're best racket with customs that you prefered.

    The port holes that Prince came up with was genius in terms of marketing. It was different, easily recognized, and for the most part, did what they said it would do (allow more string movement for a softer feel and more power). I've heard they weren't doing so well lately, but as far as a leader in technology, they seem to have taken the most chances.

    Head is doing well, even though I don't consider their rackets "leaders in technology". They have the #1 player in the world, and that certainly helps. Roddick and Nadal have bolstered Babolat's sales tremendously, and I'm sure Federer hasn't exactly hurt Wilson. If Isner, or some other Prince player, would have broken through and got into the top 5, I'm sure Prince would be doing ok.

    So, I guess I'd say Prince is a leader in technology, while Head seems to be a leader in marketing. I don't see Dunlop moving up or down very much.

    As long as Prince produces the POG they will be allright. If they ever stop making that stick, they are dead (at least for me).
