    My dad uses this racquet and he said that they no longer make it. I'm just wondering when they discontiued it and if any new line took its place.
    Thanks:)

    Ok thanks. Do you know when it was discontinued? I use the Prestige Mid myself. I have four of the Youtek IGs and three of the YouTeks:)

    Not sure exactly, but I'd say like maybe 8 years?

    Whaaaat?:eek: I thought they had some version of the O3 Tour more recently than that. I'm shocked. I thought you might say earlier this year or...ok early 2017 or sometime in 2016.

    Well there was the exo3 tour 100 and then the tour 100 but essentially the phantom 100 is the newest version - textreme to the throat and narrower beam

    Yeah, most recently they had the EXO3 Tour, followed by the Tour 100 (which was discontinued a few years ago). But the actual O3 Tour is quite a bit older, as most companies seem to go through 2 year life cycle for each release.

    Right, I just remembered it as the O3 Tour but I know they did have the EXO3 like you guys said. My dad mentioned it just a few weeks ago so I thought it was kind of recent.

    When you get old, 4 years ago is considered recently. But to young bucks it's an eternity.

    As a port player I have hit with O3 to Ozone to Speedport to EXO3, Tour 100 ; Tour 100 ESP & the current is the Phantom 100 so yes about 8 years since they went to rectangular ports.
    The Phantom 100 plays like a smoother version of the Tour. Have him give it a try.
