Definitely my first experience with a ported Prince frame (EXO3 Tour 100). Truth be told, I can play my best tennis with that (kind of) frame because it's so much more forgiving than any other (non-ported) frame out there (says a happy Blade user ;) ).
Adding to what I wrote in post #13:
I have four Fischer Vacuum Pro Classic MP (with the 'Retro' design; got them all NOS) and they feel much softer than the Pacific X Tour 97 I had some years ago. Really like a night and day difference. To be precise, the Pacific didn't feel 'bad' at all and it...
Very good insight by Frankc I think.
Even though I prefer the original Fischer frames to their Pacific heirs ;)
If you can manage to resist the temptations evoked by what you see on TV and in the hands of your tennis partners, those small brand racquets do offer unique playing characteristics.
