Prince
 
What's the latest on Prince? Any news?

Are they still going to be around in a few years?

New line coming this summer.

bluegrasser 01-24-2013 04:39 AM

I just heard they're bringing back the ' Diablo & Graphite, but not until summer.

Strange world. Prince planning a comeback but it's day-to-day for Twinkies.

New versions, or the same that TW has had all along?

I believe new versions, probably close to same specs, but don't quote me on that - that's all I know:-|

Interesting. My rep is holding out on me :(

Noticed Prince rackets at Sports Authority are ending up in clearance...anticipating a new line?

gtshark1 01-24-2013 08:51 AM

New performance racquet line comes out in June

TRVX1912 01-24-2013 08:53 AM

I believe prince is going back to a traditional grommet system

Arthuro 01-24-2013 09:09 AM

Prince has not filed any new patents for new technology. So they might bring back some of their old school technology. Triple threat technology was actually pretty good.

wow a smart move for once...could be interesting

Just talked to my rep yesterday and they're coming out with 3 new players frames in the summer. They're going to be available with EXO3 technology and traditional grommets (not just exo3 inserts, but regular molds with traditional grommets). They don't have names of the rackets yet, but they're in their new catalog.

What new catalog? They don't have one for the summer yet.

Completely unrelated, but why is your username James Bond, but your avatar pic is Magnum P.I. ?

Thanks for the replies. Heard that they declared bankruptcy about 8 months ago and was just interested to know was the latest was. Great to see that they're coming out with new equipment/lines. :)
