Based on the continued use on the ATP circuit of its predecessor, the Ozone Tour, the expectations are high for the Prince EXO3 Tour 100 16x18, which offers a slightly softer feel and more power compared to the denser patterned version. With a strung weight around 11.5 ounces, this is definitely a control racquet with the added maneuverability afforded by the head light balance and the improved aerodynamics from the EXO3 technology. This technology has also been updated by adding a new thermoplastic resin into the carbon fiber matrix to offer players a combination of properties from the two materials. Being a softer material, the thermoplastic resin reduces string vibration for enhanced comfort, while the carbon fiber Energy Bridge offers the responsiveness and pop players expect for great feel. The EXO3 Tour 100 16x18 offers the ability to customize the response by changing the string port inserts and string hole inserts based on player preference. The port inserts allow the strings greater movement, leading to increased comfort and ball speed, while the hole inserts a more classic feel with slightly more control. The flexibility of the string bed increases the sweetspot, ensuring more consistent ball response, even on off center shots. This racquet is recommended for strong baseline and all court players seeking a blend of control and pop from a thin beam, midplus headsize.

Prince Exo Tour 100 16x18
5/5
I went away from Prince years ago thinking they were just a little behind the curve of modern tennis. I now decided to give the Tour 100 16x18 a try to see if it fit my game. Wow, what a stick! THIS RACQUET had everything I was looking for. The spin, touch and power all in one. I'm a 4.0 - 4.5 player and I play 3-4 times a week. Thanks to Prince I have the weapons to really help my game.

Great racquet!

The Prince Tour 100 is a great doubles racquet. Very manueverable, but with enough heft to hit deep ground strokes and big serves. Great access to spin too.

I was looking for more of a players racket that could help me step up my game. This racket is good for the player who is looking to hit the ball harder.

5/5
When I first tried this racquet, it seemed like any other demo I had tried. It was good, not great. But as I kept playing with it for about a week or so, it really grew on me. Now I love it! It gives me power, since it weighs more than my old racquet, but it isnt too heavy, as some demos were. I highly recommend this racquet. If you try this racquet and dont think its that great, just keep on going. Trust me, it only gets better as you get used to it.

So sweet.
5/5
This racket is awesome. Feels super soft, has power, ridiculous spin, outrageous control, a sweet spot the size of Nebraska and looks darn good too. Tried lots or racquets lately..and this one wins out as the feel is quite different from most on the market today but...the more you play the more you like.

5/5
This is my first Prince racquet. I am usually a head guy, but after the demo of this racquet I had to have it. The larger sweet spot really gives me the confidence to go for more shots. It is very forgiving and it has really improved my topspin serve.

The wider string pattern gives good spin and the 100 head size adds power.This is a perfect combination for me, a 3.5 club player. Plus this racquet is an ounce lighter than my Wilson K-Factor 98.

Excellent Performance
5/5
I demoed a Babalot, Head, Wilson and Prince racket. Each was priced similarly, had similar weights, identical head sizes and similar string configurations. While the Prince and Babalot rackets played similarly, I found the the Prince racket, this one, to be the easy choice due to its better control at the net. The interesting thing was that I had a sneaky suspicion within a few hits that this was the one. After 90 minutes playing with both the Prince and Babalot rackets, that initial feeling within a few hits was born out. This racket is a great performer.

I just love the feel of this racquet. I am still trying to dial it, trying different strings and tensions. I found switching from a pro staff classic, this racquet gave me a bit more spin and a lot better manueverability when volleying. The ex03 is lighter than my pro staff so I did loose some power from the baseline. hope this helps.

I love this racquet becuase it gives me so much power. The open ports in the grommet allows me to have a greater sweet spot. The size of the frame gives me stability and control.

This racket is the tennis playing equivalent of a comfy couch. The strings absorb shots with a soft touch, and you get decent power coming off. Balance is great. This is an excellent serve and volley racket as well. Highly recommended.

Nice Racquet
5/5
I demo-ed a lot of racquets and this was by far the most responsive of the bunch. Although it is a little heavy by some standards, it is head light so it doesnt feel heavy at all. Keep in mind I am very petite. It gives a good deal of extra spin to my shots, and I have a little more power with this racquet compared to others too. I was hesitant about this racquet only because Prince isnt as widely used as other racquets, but after demo-ing it and reading reviews about it online, I decided to go for it and Im glad I did.

comfy racket
4/5
I got this racket because I have shoulder problems and this was the softest most flexible racket I could find. It also met all my other wishes 100sq/in, open pattern for spin. Hit with it a few times and it delivers. It is easy on my shoulder, has nice spin and a big sweet spot, and a nice buttery feel on shots. Overall an excellent racket. So why did Prince stop making it My advice to Prince: Put it back into production with an updated look, make it a bit heavier and add a leather grip as a base for an overgrip. I will add the leather grip myself and this might provide that extra bit of weight Im looking for. I would have given a 5 star rating but the racket had a chip in the finish, a brand new racket should not have chips in the finish.
