I have owned both (the M-Speed was the MP 105 head) and IMO the M-Speed was far better than the O3 in an overall score. Tarkowski's review was spot on because I also felt the Fischer was much better in every department except producing spin. Now don't misunderstand what I'm saying, the M-Speed IS very spin friendly but the O3 Tour is a spin machine. Not many sticks are as spin happy as the O3. One other negative of the O3 was that it seemed way too powerful for a "player's" frame. Lead is a must if you take long, fast swings. For me, the M-Speed wants you to swing harder because it seems to offer even better control the faster you swing it. This may be due to its flex rating.Rafa Nadal said:Hi,
Has anyone played with the Prince 03 Tour and the Fischer M Speed Pro Number One, and can compare both? Which feels better at Serve,Baseline...
Yep, I've demoed the Radical FlexPoint Tour as well. Nice stick - I like this one more than the O3 as well. Everybody's game and feel is different, but to me, the Tour is more stable and a bit crisper than the O3. Power level's seemed similar - but I think the stringbed contributes to the power of the O3 while the Tour has a crisper frame (still very arm friendly and flexible though). I don't like the grip shape, but the weight, balance, and playability of the Flexpoint Tour is very nice.Rafa Nadal said:@tarkowsko and sevens, thanks
Have you played the Flexpoint Radical (Tour) too ?
Could anyone provide any suggestion about Prince O3 mid(95) vs. Fischer M speed(98)?? Thanks...~~tarkowski said:A racquet that looks intriguing to me is the new Prince O3 Mid (95): It is both heaver and smaller than the O3 MidPlus (100) which moves that model in the right direction for me. You might want to consider this for a demo as well.
Seems like the racquets you've gone through are similar to what I'm considering now. Which racquet would you rate as the best among O3 Tour, M-Speed 98, RDX500 MP, Aeropro Drive and possibly Fxp Radical Tour? Any more detail info would be highly appreciated. Thanks.sevens said:I tested the O3 Tour along with the M-Speed 98, RDX 500MP, and Aeropro Drive. To me the O3 was too fly-away. I was hitting most everything long. The frame is very maneuvarable though and plays well at net. It lacks punch on serves. I'm sure that by adding tons of lead to it the frame plays much better - I just wanted to customize as little as possible. The M-Speed is less powerful than the O3 and Aeropro on groundies but has plenty of pop for me. It serves as well if not better than all the other sticks. The Aeropro is more lively than the Fischer - you may miss that. Hope this helps. --Has anyone out there tried the DNX10 and M-Speed?
