    Well a local pro showed me some Prince O3 Racquets he was selling, so I'm wondering which one people think is better overall.
    The price is no object so just which one everyone thinks is better.

    He had a few but the ones he showed me were:
    O3 Speedport Black
    O3 Spectrum
    O3 Ozone Four
    O3 Hybrid Shark

    I demoed them for a pretty short time, but I'm leaning to the Speedport Black, but if anyone has any experiences they would be duly appreciated.

    Thanks everyone.

    If price is not an issue, go for the Black.

    If price is an issue, go for the cheapest one that you like the most...

    Well all of them swing way faster than my old racquet, I missed my first shot lol
    But afterwards I have to say the Black did feel the best, I could get good power, spin and control.
    But this was a brief 10 minute demo, but it's gotten some great reviews.
    I'm wary of one thing though, I'm not sure if it comes with both port insert thingys.
    Does anyone have a O3 Speedport?
    If so, which insert do you prefer?
    And are there any glaring flaws in either of the inserts?

    uninformed opinion alert:

    Get the black.

    I did this a couple times already. There's no demo in my country.

    If price were an issue, I'm sure the OP wouldn't be looking at Prince frames :D. Demo them all some more, and choose the one that you feel comfortable playing with and looking at.

    Dont disregard the o3 white, it does everything as well as the black is more comfortable and should be cheaper.

    I use the O3 red but the racket you choose should be based on your game. If I had to choose from your options I would take the black but it all depends on what works best for you. If you want racket power, go for the biggest headsize but if you like control go for the smallest one.

    You might also want to check out the Ozone Tour when it comes out. Th O3 Tour is really good too.

    If you absolutely want an O3 (I don't know why you would but...) I'd say try the speedport black and tour. Make sure you get them with the string hole inserts, then you can actually feel the ball...

    You can add some lead if it feels too whippy...

    You want to demo every racket first.
