Prince Textreme Tour O3 100

#1
Has anyone any information on when this twaron frame with O3 ports will be released in Europe? Currently use the 100P and really want to try this O3 offering.

Same. Ported phantom a bit too thin. Wouldn't mind a ported frame with a beam closer to 21mm. Beast o3 series bit too thick with loads of power.

The O3 Tour 100 is 21-23mm beam with a 16x19. It’s 5g heavier than the 100P but never been able to tell that much difference between sticks 300-310 weight range. The addition of Twaron is really interesting as the old Head sticks with that material were great. I suspect it’s sometime 2019 but getting impatient...

I have information that it is 65 ra

Was hoping for low 60’s but the Twaron and ports may well compensate.

Me to. I've sent mail to one european site that has the racquet and they responded 65ra. I hope they understood I asked about o3 version, not the regular.

I’m a regular customer of a U.K. etailer and will give them a call about the RA. Will let you know the result.

Ported version is unlikely to be lower RA than the solid beam, I'd expect it to be the same (65) or higher (like the Beast)

When someone has playtested this model, I'd be interested in hearing more about their experiences. And for example how it compares to the ‘old’ EXO3 Tour 100 16x18, if possible.

I've got a feeling that the Prince Textreme O3 Tour 100 310g could be an improved version of the Prince Phantom 100 310g: similar specs, but an additional cross string (16x19 instead of 16x18), a slightly thicker beam (20-22-18mm) and slightly higher stiffness for a bit more punch while retaining maneuverability, comfort and foregiveness. Sounds good to me!

The first item, it came with a weight of 316 grams.
Added on 10 and 2 hours still on 1.5 grams.
Very good feeling, feels much softer than TT 310.
More power is unambiguous, but the spin is much lower.
I play one-handed backhand, my strongest blow, I can not find the rotation with this racket.
Forehand Western grip I couldn't find a shot with TT 310, TT 310 O3 incredible sense of impact with a simultaneous power, but give a great spin hard.
My level: Amateur 4.5
In General, do not chose ТТ310 or TT310 O3

i dont agree with you that people should stay away of these rackets,after many years of tennis and switching to a lot of rackets i find TT310 really nice frame in all departments and cant wait to try the ported version also because i would like even more comford

So you’re saying you like both the O3 and the solid beam Textreme Tour 310 frames? Which of those has more spin?
 
#37
No doubt the O3 has more spin. The ports work. I get more spin with the same stroke using my tour 18 20 than my 100p. There is no doubt about it. The 100p has a more open pattern but when swinging aggressively, the ports seem to hold the ball and spin it more. Now the tours are more flexible but I believe the ports are doing it.

Hello guys. I am kind of new here but It's been a long time I read you ;)

I currently play with the tour 100p (2015) and love it but I would be very curious to try either the new 100p or the tour 100 (310) or O3 version.

3 questions (hope someone has tried both):
- does it really worth it to buy tour 100p 2019 if I already have 2015 version ? Except the slight change in feel, is there any change in control and stability ? And does it feel heavier or same manœuvrability?
- what about tour 100 (310): do you loose some control compared to 100p? Does the ball tend to fly higher than with the 100p (higher launch angle ?)
- about O3 version : why is it sold only in Europe and not in US ? What's the main difference with normal tour 100? How would you compare them in terms of control, stability and power ?

Thank you very much for your help.

Looking forward to get your feedback.

Cheers
Julien
