Prince EXO3 Tour ESP
 
Hey guys, do you perchance already have an ETA on the upcoming Prince EXO3 Tour ESP?

Thanks!

Hello,
we are checking this with Prince and update you here once we have their answer.
Thanks,
Stefan/TWE

Yay, thank you Stefan!

Hello,
according to Prince there is no real date for this racquet at the moment other than "sometime in 2013".
Sorry,
Stefan/TWE

OK, no problem. Thank you!

Prince is famous for silly drawn-out introductions of products. The NXG series was introduced with one tiny piece of a picture of the racquet being added each week to the website over I believe a few months, until the entire picture was filled in.

FWIW, the supposed release date is February 2013 or so I heard. Anyway, we'll see.

Can't wait to demo the ESP against the Steam 99S. That should be a fun trip.

I spoke with the Prince Product Manager, Tyler just a few mins ago.

Planned to be released Fall 2013

Prince EXO Tour ESP

64 FLEX
300 grams
16x16 pattern
Roughly 31.5 balance (nicely done as about 8-10 Points Headlight )

Looking forward to this fall.

Are those unstrung specs? Or strung? Seems like 8-10 HL and 300 grams strung would have a very low swingweight.

unstrung specs

I asked him about the stiffness describing my disappointment with so many frames from many companies, including Prince and Wilson that measure over 65 RDC.

I told him that I had purchased Prince O3 White, EXO White, Exo Black and a few Wilson and Babolat Frames and my arm just keep saying "no thanks"

Told him I think, a more flexible frame will provide the added control a very open pattern like a Wilson Steam 99S needs. That was Prince's logic as well. He mentioned the two pros using the frame now and was very excited with their results.

I didn't ask about the Swingweight, but I plan to add about 16-18 grams of lead to get the static weight up to roughly 336 - 338 grams. The stock frame is 300 grams.

So 300+15 grams (strings) and 5 grams (overgrip) = 320 grams with strings.

The Swingweight can be tweaked with lead, so I am looking forward to hitting with this frame.

Did he mention who the two pros are?

300 grams unstrung

320 with strings and an overgrip would be a rough guess.

338 when I had some lead. ;)

Antonia Lottner was one. I am sorry I forget the other one.

Leave it to the Germans...

Hello,
not much more information about the delivery date available at the moment.
Only "sometime late Summer/Fall 2013".
Thanks,
Stefan/TWE

Hope this isn't an O port frame

The ESP Tour is an O port frame.
