    Like many others, I'm still hoping Prince comes to the reality that the US market needs a Warrior replacement! Of course we're all familiar with the Tour Harrier, but I came across a frame called the Prince Game Warrior. Anyone know anything about this one?

    Here's what I found.....

    Ideal for players with moderate to full strokes. The braided shaft increases the racquets strength whilst improving the racquet feel and the double bridge is the only technology to dampen both string and frame vibrations because the elastomer touches both. This racquet also features the Air Handle system for comfort and Triple Threat with Tungsten, which places titanium, copper, carbon and tungsten in three critical racquet locations: 10 o'clock, 2 o'clock and at the bottom of the handle for stability, power, and precision.


    Triple Threat with Tungsten
    Triple Threat with Tungsten places titanium, copper, carbon and tungsten in three critical racquet locations: 10 o'clock, 2 o'clock and at the bottom of the handle. A phenomenally stable racquet design is created, with a huge sweet spot for more power and precision than ever. Less shock and easier on the arm.

    Air+ Comfort Handle
    Air+ handle provides 50% more shock absorption for reduced fatigue and added comfort. Allows air to circulate for superior grip ventilation.

    You cant compare it with the Warrior....look at the Powerlevel...! It is a racket meant for recreational tennis...i saw this stick once here in Germany...as i was playing the Warrior before i was interested in this "Warrior"....they have only the name in common....much stiffer and more headheavy. The wider body provides additional power...

    It is not the followup to the legendary white stick :(

    Hmmmmm....whey does that warrior os rate at 1000 power level? My usa Warrior OS is rated at 800, so it is less powerful than that warrior. I like that paint job though ;)

    The frame shape is also different. That warrior has more of a box or square beam while the usa version has a more oval shape frame that helps cut through the air, like the babolat aero pro.

    I know what it is....

    It's a Prince Air DB. I play with it and it has all the same specs. Just different colors and cosmetics. It's a great racket, I use the MP and think that it's solid and stable.

    Thanks for the posts, I was curious to why they would have gone to a 100 sq in head. Oh well, maybe someday we'll see a new Warrior in the states.
