Discussion in 'Racquets' started by psp2, Apr 11, 2007.
..been chatting with a Prince rep here in Charleston. A new version of the POG is in the works!!
It better just be a paint job..this racquet cannot get any better, well maybe with a little lead
O3 Speedport Tour Graphite OS
box shaped beam
uneven beam now: the hoop will be around 3-5mm wider to make room for speedports
same weight and balance
no dampener like other o3 models--good ol hard grommets at throat
Somethign like dat?
So it's going to have some sort of speedports?
Would this be the much-touted racquet being developed for blake? Or am I very very wrong there?
Alafter is just guessing what it is like. We have absolutely no idea like usual
Sounds good. Still not sure if I'd buy another Prince racquet...
They're insulting the POG tradition with speedports.
But, who knows? Could be great.
Just hope they don't stop making the standard POG.
Just because you whinny'ed about it, Prince will now make:
the NEW POG OS 2007
This is your permanent replacement to POG, which will be discontinued.
Headsize: 135 sq in
Length: 28.5 in
Weight: 260 G strung
Balance: 8 pts head heavy
Rounded, circular shaped beam in throat (what famous racquet has this exact property ?)
Beam width 28-32 MM
Material: Graphite, Carbonite, Aluminite, Fiberglassite, Ironite, titaniumite, Sodomite, [K]arophite
Power level: SUPER POWERED
Swing speed: Please do not move while on court
O3 holes at tip and throat
Speedport Holes on sides
More Construct Tech
And then they'll come over to your house, rob you of all your POGs and leave you with about 5 of these sticks.
i would try this racquet just for kicks
This kind of makes you my hero.
^^^^ that's very funny ^^^^
putting speedports on the POG line will disgrace its name. but i would swing it for fun.
To be considered a POG, it has to have a straight beam and the same can't be thicker that 19mm... Btw, that racquet exists already; it's the Diablo Tour MP.
Prince has to be the most marketing oriented racquet manufacture in the world. They constantly come out with new and improve racquets every year.
I mistakenly bought into this “technocrap” concept and purchased an O3 White and O3 Red racquet. They have very little feel and too much power. Furthermore, they are so stiff that they hurt your arm.
The POG was and is a good stick,. Most of their new stuff is technocrap.
The Tour Diablo Mid could be seen as an update to the POG Mid. But, the Tour Diablo MP is way to light to be a considered an update to the POG OS (plus it's 7 sq inches smaller.)
eh.... some people agree and some don't. I thought it was a great racquet but then again i've never hit with the POG
I'm not saying the MP isn't a great racquet, I'm just saying that given it's specs, it really couldn't be a replacement for the POG OS, the way a Diablo Mid could replace a POG mid.
This is probably true, but you're talking to a wilson guy
The hell with speed holes...
Keep that **** green and 19mm thick and introduce a dense pattern version instead.
A POG midplus (98 or 100 sq inches) would be great. 16 x 19 pattern, around 12.1 oz, 6 or 7 pts headlight, SW 325-330, flex 63.
I hate the grommets on my 4 stripe...hope they change that..are gomments on the TW version different?
And does anyone know what size the head is on my 4 Stripe orig.
A grommetless POG would be kinda nice. Update the current one, make it a bit heavier, bit more power and a nice leather grip... I'd bite :-D
All they need to do with the damn POG is maybe, maybe a comestic update...but, they need to make the handle longer for two-handers. That's it!
Sounds like a leaded NXG with a leather grip.
i tihnk they make a pog long body.
i would like to see them make the POG OS better for my serve.
i just bought a POG mid and a longbody
i would be excited about this new announcement but...
i never hear about anyone using a POG version other than the original
Please prince dont disgrace the POG with speedports!
I hope they come out with 3 versions like the NXG- mid, MP and OS.
i wanted to update on my experiences with a POG-
hit with one, and i really like it
Perhaps. Definitely doesn't look like it though. The NXG mid (92 SI) has a very strange head shape although it hits really nicely. I have 2 of them :-D
I'd like to see a 27", 98-100 sq/in head racket with all the same specs as the POG OS. Maybe a little more HL but that's just me. And the traditional black with green but with a little more flash. I've never personally tried the longbody but I've been told a cut down longbody just isn't the same.
A "new version" of the POG is not possible, because the 'O' in POG stands for ORIGINAL.
Pfft that O in POG was ruined years ago anyway.
Apart from the addition of the grommets and different cosmetics, has the POG changed over the years?
I honestly have no idea.
Remember the 1st POG had no grommets an d a leather grip. The stabilizer bar is different.
Can we find out more about this new POG already!
Yeah it has changed. The new one's are a lot lighter. Although lead can substitue, it can't subsitute that old feel.
