Prince EXO question

Am I confused or do the new Graphite and Rebel raquets, although marked as EXO3, not use the EXO3 "technology" described on the Prince website?

From what I understand, the EXO3 refers to a channel in the racquet for holding a grommet with multiple ports (so one frame opening holds multiple string/hole ports. As far as I can tell, the Graphite and Rebels merely use the speedports found in the older Prince racquets (one opening in the frame for each port).

true, but the changed the ports by adding an extra one. note that there are 7 now, and this supposedly alters the feel and sweetspot

The Energy Channel is all about the redistribution of weight within the frame. The Channel is created by removing most of the mass from the center of the frame were the inserts sit, and redistributed to the outer edges of the frame.

The EXO3 Rebels and Graphites utilize this design, while the Red and Silver use it and the new Energy Bridge as well.

Where did you find the explanation about how the energy channels work?

Not sure I understand the question. Do you mean you'd like me to explain the difference between the port inserts and the hole insert?
