Recently, I have been using TT bandit OS and very surprised that the racket is just good for me. In my opinion, prince should make both traditional rackets and O-port rackets. If they completely go back to normal grommet, Prince will put them to more dangerous position because it means Prince admit o3 techs are complitely failed. I don't think o3 tech is worthless.
Tested many different rackets but my choice is TT bandit OS with gamma ruff @57LBS, Japanese Rebel 95 10.9oz/310g (natural gut/MSV focus hex) and Rebel 105".
Don't get me wrong. I think the port system is great in concept...but something about the 03 system felt better than the speedport system. I used to have a 03 blue, as well as a speedport black as well as my current exo tours. The 03 blue was excellent.
I think the problem lies in a terrible string hole insert
. If it was made out of more solid materials, and maybe without any holes, it would have a more solid feel and better sound.
