    How grip size affects the semi western.

    I've got issues because my serve, slice, and backhand likes bigger grips but my forehand likes it a bit smaller.

    Prince Phantom Pro 100

    When I first got my phantom 100p I strung it at 50lb which was a tension I never go to in my other frames. I slowly worked down to about 45 to 46. Just have to be open to experiment. Difficult to force your usual string and tension down on every frame because they are different. That's like...

    Prince Phantom Pro 100

    Because what works in another frame may not work in the phantom. But if you found something good then just leave it or else you go down the rabbit hole.

    O-ports vs. Parallel drilling

    The o3 white was my first proper frame. It was sweet as. Tempted to get the speedport black or beast o3 100 for nostalgic reasons but I'll probably complain it being overpowered for my game now.

    O-ports vs. Parallel drilling

    The exo3 tour version has a hint of instability. I can vouch for that. The update in tour 100 was better.

    Prince Beast 98

    Sounds like it works well for doubles with a lower launch angle, not to mention having the tram lines to play with. I'll see if the ported tour 100 290g comes to Australia and demo the 2 side by side. That one also has my attention since its got a 16x19 pattern.

    Prince Beast 98

    Is the launch angle lower? Or does the ports liven up the string bed? I'd say what I'm after is something close to the TW 100 with a lower launch angle and less power to keep the balls in. I don't tend to use spin to push the other guy back but I do like to go to the corners to move them off the...

    Prince Beast 98

    Been pondering the beast o3 98 for some time. Looking for something in between the tweener beast line and player phantom line. Naturally I think the tour line is where I should look at but I have an eastern fh grip and a fairly flat 1hbh so my shots are more topspin drives than arcs with...

    Prince Textreme Tour O3 100

    Just noticed TWE has the ported tour 290 as well. Mmmm this has me licking my chops.

    O-ports vs. Parallel drilling

    Beast o3 100 and speedport Black are all descendants of the o3 white. Those are your best bet.

    should I use a leather grip?

    Prepare to jack up the weight by 15g or so. Unless you go bare leather which will be closer to about 9 to 10g. But with the OG it might be more weight than you would like on it.

    Prince Textreme Tour 100 (310) Thread

    Gota pick up that demo and see for yourself.

    Prince Phantom Pro and Phantom Pro100P

    Similar set up. 6g in buttcap and it feels really fast and solid. Contempt with no weight in the hop.

    Prince Textreme Beast 100

    Mine is the warrior 100 in stock form. Slight variance at 312g strung about 5pts hl.

    Prince Textreme Beast 100

    Isospeed energetic 16g seems a firm multi. I have it in my textreme warrior 100 and it seems to tame power quite well. Strung at 59lbs and after a few hits it seems to have set in nicely.
