Who tried that pretty baby??!!
I used to play the Tour 18x20 and loved that from the base - was harder to miss. Currently using the 100P which is great but the ports are very tempting.
I will pretty soon and I can't wait!!! But I'm interested about people who already did it!!??
Yes - the players all used o3 ports but older versions of course. Granollers and Jaziri are back to their old beauties, but since no stencil > no $. Not sure if Prince is supplying them or they had rackets stored away? Run all day, spin all day, win all day! Tennis has never been about how HARD, it is about how MANY!And they all used the O3 version?
That's why I'm so excited to try that new O3 Tour 100 (290g)!!!!!!!!Yes - the players all used o3 ports but older versions of course. Granollers and Jaziri are back to their old beauties, but since no stencil > no $. Not sure if Prince is supplying them or they had rackets stored away? Run all day, spin all day, win all day!

I will try it this weekend... Can't wait!!!This is the Tour 100 18x20
And this is the Exo3 Tour 100 18x20 - the model previous to that above - just to clarify.
Both ported, plush and baseliners dream sticks.
I would like to try the new O3 100 with Twaron as a comparison.

The 290 looks tempting as it can be customised, but would certainly be happy road testing the 310 as well. The thin beam is very attractive, my only quibble with the older tours was that they didn’t give you much on serve so hoping the Textreme has added a little pop - beam tapers to 22.looks like the ported version has a slightly thinner beam too ... i guess we dont get these in the US. query, why not go with the 310 model?
While the static weight might sound heavy, I feel the O-port racquets actually swing faster than non-ported ones due to the port holes. I still have an O3 White and O3 Tour Mid that I bring out to play once in a while.310 is too heavy for me. I prefer also to customize, if needed...
For serve, I prefer a good kick than a heavy flat one...
I'm a baseline spin red clay player!!!
I'm pretty sure this 290 version will fit my game PERFECTLY.
Sounds like magic, what are the cons? control?Larger sweetspot, much better comfort, more power and spin.
Some players have said that the Feel is overly dampened and there is a loss of connection to the ball. For me Feel is a very personal experience so no right or wrong, just a preference. Try it out and compare.Sounds like magic, what are the cons? control?
...and my stringer in a local allround sport shop will hate me and need this boomerang tool???
Choose I the same string tension as with non ported frames?
thx for info!
Not to mention an extra cross to help keep the launch in check just a tad.I'm really interested in Prince O3 Tour 100 (310g).
Currently playing with Prince Warrior 100, but i would certainly prefer thinner beam and more HL balance of O3 Tour 100.
I would like to see some reviews of this model because i can not demo it in my region.
Will talk about this with my stringer. Seems to be better to string with this tool to get accurate tension right after stringing...Never used that tool but figure there would be a more direct tension pull without it. (Would want to minimize deflection/friction)
Did you tried the old Tour 100 O3 16x18 at 290g unstrung?Correct. Big Dave always played the 16x18. I believe Coria and Ferrero also used the open pattern. Davydenko was the 18x20 guy along with Granollers I believe.
