Over the years reading the posts on this forum, I've lost count of the number or folks crucifying Prince for their efforts to push the envelope on racquet techonology. We all know the MORE technology didn't meet expectations. Isn't it funny that the new O3 racquets, which are the next generation of the MORE tech, are being praised by many, even some who slammed Prince during the Generation 1 (MORE) phase. Looks like the O3 tech could be a real winner. How about that? A company that is willing to put new tech out in the market, collect user feedback, and design an improved product that addresses the previous generation's shortcomings. The O3 racquets contain the best of many years of Prince work: From the MORE frames - fused sections, grommetless holes. From the Triple Threat frames - TT weighting, tapered frames, lighter the weight, the stiffer the frame. From the Thunder/Equipe years: the Sweetspot Suspension (i.e. larger holes equal bigger sweetspot). From the the CTS frames - Tapered frames allow fine tuning of flex characteristics. The ultra competitive nature of the tennis racquet business means manfacturers are constantly "borrowing" other manufacturers ideas and improving them. I think Prince deserves some credit for really pushing the tech envelope and showing the flexibility to change and enhance their designs when they don't meet user expectations. To quote Teddy Rooseveldt, "It behooves every man to remember that the work of the critic is of altogether secondary importance, and that, in the end, progress is accomplished by the man who does things.
