EXO3, O3 and Ozone Tour Users... What String do you Use?
All... just got my EXO3s a few weeks back and right now I'm loving Big Hitter Blue at 55#. Since all of the "Tours" have similar playability... what's your string and tension??

EXO3 Black with Volkl Cyclone 17G/Gosen OGMS 17 @59/61. Have also tried with Tour Bite 17g/Gosen 17 OGMS @ same tension. Both play nice, still unsure which setup I like best.

Sorry for any confusion but I was looking for feedback from those using the Tour version of EXO3, O3 and Ozone frames. I can see where my title could be misleading.

Any sort of poly in the low to mid 50s is good for the tour series of 03, EXO3 and Ozone (as well as Speedport) frames. I've used all kinds of poly strings, and I prefer those, since the frames were designed for people who swing fast and like to hit the crap out of the ball.

Ozone Tour and EXO3 Tour user here.

SPPP, Cyber Blue, Blue Gear, Black Code, Tornado, always at about 60 lbs.

I love how orange and blue strings look in those frames!

Wish I had a good answer, haven't found one I liked yet, still twiddling with a savage/gosen micro combo that is OK but nothing special

EXO Rebel 95
exo3 Rebel 95 feels totally different from all the other Prince rackets but I use Gosen Polylons 16g 59lbs.

Just broke strings and using Barbed Wire at 58lbs now

Strung one of my EXO3 Tour 16 x 18 frames with Volkl Cyclone 17g at 54# yesterday and was really pleased with the results.

A touch more control than the Big Hitter Blue and still nice pop and awesome spin.

For me, narrowed it down between those two strings.

I have a few that I like:

Kirshbaum Spiky Shark 1.30 at 55/55

Alien Poly at 55/55

And its been a while, but I remember the demo I used before purchase was strung with Beast at an unknown tension, and I liked it. But seriously, try Kirshbaum.


I tried Beast again and I love it. It is has more power than the Spiky Shark, yet it seems to have almost the same amount of control. It is quite lively, and I feel it will be better for defense than the Spkiy Shark was. Also, the Serve has a LOT more juice, it seems. I am switcing to that because Prince products are easier to obtain than Kirshbaum, and I have a sponsored friend who I hope can get me deals on reels.

Ozone Tour user here and I'm still looking as well. I've tried WC Silverstring 16 and Solinco Tour Bite 17. Between the two, I preferred Silverstring and may eventually return to it.

I also have a racquet coming with WC Turbotwist 17 on Monday so I'll be sure to let you know how that goes. I also have packs of Spiky Shark 17 and Big Hitter Blue Rough that I'll be using in the coming weeks.

Playability changes with the way a racquet is weighted and string pattern. I've got the EXO3 Tour 18x20 with 10 grams lead in the handle and 12 grams in hoop. Weight unstrung is 332. I'm using Luxilon M2 Pro right now at 50/50.

100" 18x20 Ozone Pro Tours leaded at 2&10. SPPP 1.18 mains at 56, Bab N.ny 16 at 59, Black Magic 1.24@54 N.vy 59, or Scorpion 1.22@ 55 w/N.vy. I used to use and like RIP Control for crosses, but it's not worth the hassle to string it.

markmdfw 04-08-2011 05:10 AM

when I had a o3 tour, i liked a power string, with grip, like gamma pro 18, but I am not a string breaker. I bet hurricane / vs combo would be great but $$

Jack the(Forehand)Ripper 04-08-2011 10:40 AM

If you can generate the power, go for a softer poly at low tensions. My personal favorite is WeissCANNON Black5Edge at 44 lbs.

pheonix6579 04-11-2011 04:33 PM

Right now I am really liking PHT/RIP Control @ 52/56. Also I have an extra frame to play with and might try a full bed of 18g co-poly @ 48.

lefty10spro 04-12-2011 10:19 AM

EXO3 Tour 16x18. Mains - Recoil @ 46#, Crosses - Beast @ 43#. 4.5 heavy spin player.

All times are GMT -8. The time now is 02:40 AM.
