O3 Tour - Lopsided Holes

Does anyone know why the holes on the O3 tour are lopsided? On one side it is higher than the other side. What is the benefit to the racquet?

i don't think they're supposed to be like that. try to look harder, restring them, or check for "counterfeitism".

Could it be so that the strings, when strung, are parallel with each other?

A poor marketing choice, I feel. I think it's far more important that the holes line up. After all, what's the point in having big holes like that if you can't look through one side of the racquet and out the other without tilting the racquet all topsy-turvy? I'm perfectly willing to have my cross-strings go off at absurd angles in the name of having the holes properly aligned. Dammit.

the holes don't line up in order to string the crosses properly. if the holes lined up you wouldn't be able to string the racquet. if you've ever strung an O3 it would be pretty obvious.

It comes with the O3 Red and O3 Silver.. dont know why it doesnt come with the O3 Tour.. but if you buy one ask the shop to give ya one and they should.. if they dont call prince and prince will mail you one too.. Prince mailed me a bunch of their O3 Tour vibration dampners too.

it comes with all the o3's in canada. you need it to string the racquet properly. crosses can't be done unless you use the boomerang tool or have a string machine with a brake.

twistserve's pics explain it all.
