    It seems that NickC is proving everyone right the more he posts.

    Naw man, I've been posting here for a while under the username of NicholasCole, and I recently changed it.

    Thank you, I guess.

    what exactly is your point? its obvious from the 7 holes, 16x20 pattern, and concave bottom hoop that sam's racket is completely different from either of the 16x18 or 18x20 HTs, or the diablo for that matter.
    the throat markings on the 18x20 are explainable by the fact that they were never available for normal retail purchase, but for prince-sponsored pros only.

    Considering we saw the EXO3 prototypes well over a year before their release date I'm surprised there hasn't been a sighting of the new Diablo, if there is to be one.

    Actually, over winter break, my family and I went to Florida. The resort we stayed at had a country club. From what I could tell, the country club was sponsored by Prince. All the rental racquets it had were Prince: accessories, strings, etc. They also had about 4 prince racquets bolted onto the wall at the reception desk. They were all stenciled: the O3 White, POG Mid, POG OS, and some black speedport/o port racquet with red inserts. It was a midsize; I could tell because it was right next to the POG mid. I could not make out the model, but I could tell it had speedports/o ports. My dad would not let me take a picture because it would "go against the etiquette of the club." Is this the Speedport/EXO3/O3 Diablo?

    But if a Diablo indeed is coming, why did Malisse go to the EXO3 Graphite? :confused:

    if you remember ryler deheart's match with nadal at the us open, he was using what looked like a diablo with speedports.

    i know that when sam first switch to the hybrid tour he was using an 18x20 frame. but after a while he didnt like it and in his match with fed (whenever tiger woods was in the stands) he was using a blacked out hybrid tour which eventually became his 16x20.

    i know this pic is hard to see but its the best i found of his 18x20

    YES! That racquet that Ryler is using looks a lot like the racquet I saw in Florida. No Prince stencil on his strings though...

    And I teach at a Prince exclusive and sponsored club, and we've seen no SPeedport Diablo. I'm sure the racquet you saw in the shop was a Speedport Black with red inserts. I called my rep and he told me the racquet is planned, but NO ONE has the frame yet, it hasn't been produced.

    Damn! Once again I said that you shouldn't criticize people who (dont know). You obviously know so stop it, seriously.

    Who is criticizing who? I think LS was just letting those who posted that deheart was using a speedport know that he isn't using a speedport. He wasn't rude. I think the point of people posting questions are so they get answers.

    I sincerely hope your little snipe wasn't aimed in my direction.

    Reading back, it might be. But the poster needs to address who he's speaking to before all posters become offended.
