Prince EXO3 White 100 Racquet Review

When I first took a look at this racquet, I was impressed with the graphics. Usually, I don’t care for white racquets but this one looks good up close. The next challenge was to see if it plays as good as it looks.
 
 

Groundstrokes

I thought this racquet was very solid and carried a moderate amount of power. It seems like it is right in-between a high powered racquet and a low-powered one. For someone who likes a little pop on their groundies, this one will be in your wheelhouse. The stiffness of this racquet allowed me to handle off-center hits with ease and the racquet resisted twisting. It was a nice, solid feeling racquet. No arm issues at all. Spin was good and I felt comfortable on both topspin and slice. Even at 100 sq in, I didn’t feel like I lost control of the tennis ball. However, if you take a big rip on the ball, you’ll need to back off some as the ball will tend to fly a little bit. Stringing it towards the top end of the recommendations will help, too.

Serves/Returns

I could generate good speed on serves but it shined in placement. I was able to hit the outside corner of the ad side better with this racquet than with most any other due to the control it possesses. Frankly, no matter where I aimed the ball, it seemed to go there! Surprisingly, I didn’t get as much power on serves as I thought would. Since groundstrokes seemed to be more powerful, I thought it would translate to the serve. Not so. Still, no complaints as it was certainly adequate. Returns were a dream due in large part to the extra sq in. Whether I took a full rip or just blocked them back, returns were very effective.

Volleys/Overheads

This EXO3 White 100 Racquet felt at home near the net. The extra size gave me confidence that I could volley anything that came my way. Volleys were solid and I had to only slightly adjust to make sure I didn’t hit long. There is nice mobility and since the overall weight is low, the even balance didn’t hamper the quickness at the net. Overheads were smooth and easy.

This was a nice play test for me and I really enjoyed the racquet. Personally, it felt a tad light but a little well placed lead tape could fix that problem. The 100 sq in felt great and I didn’t feel like I was hitting with a trampoline. However, this racquet will provide more pop and I would consider it more towards the power side than the control side. If you’re a 4.0+ player looking for a larger racquet with a nice amount of pop, this may be the ticket.
