    I guess my answer would be, why 16x19 on the 97p? The reality is that we can change the performance more through string spacing and string density than just through numbers of mains and crosses. Not all 16x19 patterns are the same, it certainly isn't a magic formula. We have done a lot of...

    Hi Aussie, just to follow on from Tyler's response here, i'll add my 2 cents. We have found quite a bit of success with O3 Phantom 100, people who have gravitated to it have liked the feel and the softer flex however I'd say most of these players have not come from the Tour 100 18x20 or 16x18...

    Hey Aussie, At the moment i'm not sure that there are immediate plans to launch the new O3 Tour in the US or Australian Market. With so many different options available, many markets opted to just stick with the traditional models in the Tour series of racquets. In fact the only market that...

    You've definitely struck on one of the most common debates about how to list specs for racquets, and let me take a few minutes to outline what we do and more importantly WHY we do it. For starters, from a manufacturing perspective, we will ALWAYS list our specs as unstrung and that is what you...

    This is a work in progress but there has been quite a big website update this week.

    Hey Darek, There are actually a few options that you might want to look into. The Warrior 100 with the 16x18 string pattern definitely had more "juice" than some folks wanted, so the very first option to try would be the Beast 100. For this model, while the base geometry of the frame is...

    Hi Thiem's 1HB. We can adjust the bending profile of the racquet quite significantly by changing the taper of the beams. Obviously we can also adjust the bending profile through the layup but the cross section design is definitely a big factor. The thicker the cross section the stiffer it...

    We take all questions here, so dont' worry about that :) Regarding the Vortex Triad and the Vortex Triad Hybrid, here's how it breaks down: Vortex Triad is a brand new string. Completely different formulation to the old Tour XS, which played a little "mushier" and had less snap back than the...

    Hi Mark, sorry that we missed your question. As Tyler explained yesterday, it's a really busy period right now and so we haven't been able to keep up with the forum as much as we would have liked. The original graphite was fully foam filled, however when the Classic Graphite was reintroduced...

    Hey MelodicDeath, Sorry there, not trying to ignore you :) We have a LOT of things in the works here at HQ for 2021 and we've definitely put some though into the new Tour racquets. It's a little too early to give more specifics, but for sure there's nothing on the horizon for this year. Tyler

    Hey Trinity110, You're definitely in a whole different class of racquets between the Hornets - Legacy/Premier - Phantom. The Phantom will have a flexible and comfortable feel, but will not give you the kind of "free power" that you're probably getting with the Hornet (particularly because of...

    Hey djNEiGht, I'll echo a lot of what flanker2000fr posted here (with the exception of trying frames outside of Prince :)) The simple option would be to move up to the Phantom 97P and give that a whirl. The larger headsize will give you more forgiveness but you'll have to compensate your...

    Hey Stephenclown, 1st of all, good on you for getting your hands on a production data sheet :) You can see in the 4th column on the sheet with the heading of RA that the target for this batch was 65. This matches the standard production spec of this racquet and thus NOT the stiffer option...

    Hey TennisPassie, You are correct here, but to answer specifically...YES the 1st generation Phantom Pro 100P and the new Phantom 100P share the same grommet design so they can be used interchangeably. Tyler

    Hey there Pablo Andujar fans! We've been working with Pablo for many years and would be happy to share exactly what we've provided him. As many of you know, Pablo has been a user of the Original O3 Tour MP for many years. Despite testing a variety of new options, he has never been quite able...
