    I'm waiting on word from Tennis Warehouse Europe, but this racquet won't be available at Tennis Only.

    Thanks,

    Any word about when the 5/8 frames will arrive here in the states? I ordered some last week, but TW didn’t seems to have a good sense of when they’d arrive

    While we are the US distributor/licensee of Prince, Europe has their own distribution channels separate from ours. We can, however, ship Prince to Australia.

    Thanks,
    Brittany, TW

    Sorry, Alex78, but it looks like this racquet won't be available in Europe either. Our buyer doesn't see it in his catalog.

    Because there is existing distribution, we are not allowed to ship Prince products there. Countries that we are not allowed to ship to are established by Prince.

    Thanks,
    Tiffani, TW

    Sorry for all the confusion. As of just recently, we are able to ship Prince products to Canada and Australia as well as the US. If you are having issues ordering, please call or email in to our customer service department at info@tennis-warehouse.com.

    Thanks,

    Does 93P complete the Phantom lineup, or is there more to come?

    I tried buying the Prince 93P today and was not allowed to ship to Australia despite what is said above? Sucks

    That sucks mate, I have bought phantoms before delivered to Melbourne. Maybe the restrictions are technical glitches? Try using fed ex delivery instead of world saver...

    Romp,

    This is a technical issue with the website that we are working on. Please contact our customer service department and we can get an order set up for you.
    info@tennis-warehouse.com

    scotus,
    This does complete the Phantom line for now, but who knows what the future may hold?

    Can you confirm that you’re still expecting to receive the 93p in a 5/8 in April? I’ve ordered some but notice that the 5/8 hasn’t been added to the product page. Thank you

    There is an order for the 5/8 grip size, but the estimated arrival has been pushed back to May 1.

    Thanks,

    That’s a bit of a bummer, but sounds like it’ll be well worth the wait. Just to confirm: it is definitely being made in a 5/8, right? (Hope they’re not going to forever push back the date. And, again, kudos to TW for helping to see to it that another real frame makes it to market.)

    Hello @TW Staff, I'm currently playing with the Tour G 330. I wonder How would the Phantom compare to it in terms of stability, plow through and control. Thanks

    @EKTiger,
    The stability and plow through are pretty similar between the Phantom Pro 93P, and Yonex VCORE Tour G 330. The Tour G 330 may pack a bit more plow through, but it is pretty close. The Phantom Pro 93P cuts through the air a bit easier, with the smaller headsize, and thinner beam. The control is better with the Phantom Pro 93P, likely the most control oriented racquet we carry at the moment.

    Troy, TW

    @EKTiger,
    From my recollection of hitting with the VCORE Tour G 330, it had somewhat of a muted feel. I was surprised to find that with the Phantom Pro 93P, having a low flex rating, there was still somewhat of a crisp feel on contact (maybe the Textreme). I may have to go with the Phantom Pro 93P, as having a slightly crisper feel, compared to the VCORE Tour G 330. The new VCORE Pro 97 (330) has a crsiper feel than both the Phantom Pro 93P, and VCORE Tour G 330.

    Troy, TW
