    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    I found pretty easy racquet head speed.

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    I have played with the 100X 305 for a few months and have to tell you that touch and feel is better with the 100P. I also played with the PS 85 back in my early days of playing. I can tell you that the Phantoms don't play well at high tensions due to the flexible nature of the frame. If you play...

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    Yes, I hit some serves and volleys with the 100P. It really is very easy to serve with and the spin potential is off the charts and there is good pop and directional control. I only hit 1 double fault in a practice match. I am not really a good volleyer but it was quite stable at the net with...

    Wanted: 2020 Prince Phantom 100p

    I am looking for a 2020 Prince Phantom 100p in a 4 1/2 grip in good to excellent condition. I would also consider a trade for a Wilson Blade v7 98 16x19 that I have that's 9.5 out of 10. Feel free to email directly at kharris8175@gmail.com. Thanks.

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    Prince is definitely making a comeback but the younger players coming up like a stiffer frame that is powerful. The 100P has a little bit of the modern feel as there is a little firmness in the upper hoop but IMO it plays like the old school racquets from many years ago. I used to play with the...

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    I played today with the 100P today with 2 grams of lead at 3 and 9 as well as 1.5 grams on the butt of the handle. The stability and plow with this frame are phenomenal with the little bit of extra. There was also a nice increase in pop. I can still generate easy spin and depth with the extra...

    Prince Phantom 100X 305

    My 2020 100P came in at 323 grams strung. I played with it stock the first time out but it had a little hint of instability hitting into the wind. I added 2 grams total at 3 and 9 as well as 1.5 grams to the butt of the handle. I am playing tomorrow with this set up and will post my review. I...

    Prince Phantom 100X 305

    Great review! I experienced the same main issue with the lack of stability and plow. The 100x didn't take weight well which is why I gave up on it and now with the 100P which suites my game more.

    Prince Phantom 100X 305

    I don't know how the 100x 290 is with lead but for me I don't like adding alot of weight as it changes the whole dynamic of frame. I really like the hefty SW of the 100P. Only very minor customization needed. The 100P is probably the racquet of the year for me!!

    Prince Phantom 100X 305

    Yes, it does and more forgiving on mishits. I got really connected with the 100P very quickly. I could go into a match tomorrow with it and feel confident. It could very well be a racquet of the year for Prince IMO.

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    Yes, for my game the 100P hits the mark because of my western grips. I get easy spin because of swing path and the open pattern. The Blade may a bit better for flat hitting but that's about it. Yes, NRG is a great string but very expensive. I will break it too quick and need something alot less...

    Prince Phantom 100X 305

    I have played with both and the SW is about the same as well as the balance. Definitely the new 100P is alot more solid than the 100x across the board. It's very user-friendly and has a huge sweetspot.

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    Correct, more power and better control with the new 100P over the 100x as well as better stability. The touch and feel are quite good. The 100P hits a heavy ball even in stock form but IMO just needed a little more weight to improve the stability. Yes, I would agree that the Phantom's are a...

    Prince Phantom Pro 100p vs Prince Phantom 100p

    323 grams. I just added 2 grams total at 3 and 9 as well as 1.5 grams on the butt of the handle. This will fix the instability issue.

    I just purchased the new Phantom 100p and the ATS has improved the stability of the frame.
