Prince EXO3 Rackets
 
Sadly, I have to say that I keep getting a lot of pain in my forearm, elbow, and wrist and I really believe that it is because of my racket/string combo. I used to just get over it, but now it doesn't go away. I need to change to something that is very arm friendly, and I have found that prince exo3 technology really is the best (in my opinion) for increasing arm friendliness.

As far as string goes, I want to stay with poly. I have grown to dislike the feel of synthetics and multis because they are too mushy and lack precision in an open pattern.

The tour and warrior lines are very intriguing to me. The rebel is too demanding and I don't like the 98 at all.

The tour 16X18 is a very soft frame, even w/full poly at 50#. It is a low-powered frame, but unlike even-balanced 11 oz. thin-beamed frames, has enough mass to prevent it from being pushed around. Swings fast, too.

Thanks jack. If anyone's wondering, I'm not going to buy any of the sale prince rackets because I actually don't like the cosmetics AT ALL.

Jack, how low powered is it? As low powered as a mg radical?

I know this racket has been your TE "cure." How is the power level, Mike?

Prince EXO3 Red 105 works for me. Synthetic or natural 17-gauge gut at 55-57 lbs. No arm problems.

16x18 isnt low powered, 18x20 is low powered. I recommend 16x18 (as I have both).

If a Pure Drive is a 9/10 and an MG Rad MP is a 3/10, it to me is a 5/10.

Thanks a lot guys. My local club happens to be a prince retailer that offers $2 demos. I'm gonna take one for a spin and see how it goes.

Then good that you gave up on stiffer Hornet...
Warrior is practically the same thing as the O3 White, so you can save some $ there. Tour, I didn't play with, but it sounds it's even softer...

I can give you some less conventional stringing ideas, but off-line to prevent stirring the pot :D If you wish, you can email me direct:

There is a big difference between the two. The 16 x 18 is still a little underpowered compared to most frames on the market.

Yes this is the big reason that I have up on the hornet. I do not like how the white looks and my friend also has one, so I dint want the same racket as him. Shoot me an email through this board. Should be easier :)

My bad. I'll send you an email.

Edit: email sent

Ok, how demanding is this racket? If it's pretty demanding, I'll grab a warrior.

It's pretty demanding, you have to prepare early.

My stroke isn't very long. Medium backswing and WW finish. Medium/fast swing. Maybe the tour would be too much racket for me.

How about a Bab Pure Storm? Nice and comfy...manageable 327 SW...decent power...

Thanks, but I'm not a storm fan and I really just want to go back to prince. I like their quality of their products

Rebel 98 is also a good option, as well as the O3 White as mentioned.
