    I'm wondering which Prince Exo is the equivalent of the o3 tour? I have prince o3 tours right now and am considering demo-ing the new Exo's but I'm not sure which one to do. I'm thinking maybe the exo rebel?

    Thanks!

    I think there isn't one equivalent for the O3 tour in the EXO line, maybe you could try the new graphite midplus. The replacement of the 03 tour was the 03 Ozone Tour.

    There was also a Speedport Tour, with a nice-looking metallic orange paint job, that (I think) came out after the Ozone but was discontinued before it. The Speedport is 97 sq in, the O3 Tour was 95 and 100 sq in, and the Ozone Tour was 100 sq in only. (EDIT: I was mistaken. The Ozone came out after the Speedport, apparently to rescue sales from O3 Tour users that did not respond to the Speedports.)

    I've read on these boards a rumor, attributed to a Prince rep, that the next iteration of the Tour line is due near the end of this year.

    ^^^not sure if there is any truth to the rumor concerning new tour/ozone racquets at the end of the year (unfortunately).

    The original o3 tour was a 100 head then they added the 95 and 107 versions. Players such as Ferrer and Juan Carlos Ferrero use the o3 tour. The change for a pro from a traditional players stick to an o3 would be huge, they wont change as easily again and paint jobs are harder to do. I asked Prince on there FB page a few months ago if there would be a new version and they replied saying watch this space.

    Check out pics of Federico Gil at the Poznan Challenger tourney this week. That may be it.
