    Chatted with a Prince rep today about the new O3 Speedport Black/Tour. Good looking racquets, btw. I am looking forward to hitting the Tour soon.

    Here's what the description of the "Blake" racquet would have been like:

    >18mm straight beam
    >standard grommets (no O3 technology)
    >18x20
    >95" MP head
    >makeup????

    The rep tried to describe the racquet as best as possible, but a photo would been worth a 1k words in this scenario.

    Lastly, Prince will be selling their leather calfskin grips soon!! YEAH!

    I asked the rep if I can get some leather grips and was told that they would be selling them soon (July-ish).

    18 mm sounds like something I'd like. But 18 x 20 does not.
