The Prince Tour 100T ESP Tennis Racquet is built to create a balanced combination of spin and control. Perfect for advanced players with long, fast strokes, this frame features a double bridge vibration dampener for less racquet shock and string vibration. Weighing in at a 10.6 ounces unstrung, the Tour 100T was constructed with a 9-point head light balance, which allows for extreme maneuverability despite the more substantial weight. The Tour family of frames includes integrated ESP (Extreme String Pattern) technology designed to give you 30% more spin production and added shot penetration through the use of an open 16x16 string pattern. Prince has also incorporated its EXO3 technology, which utilizes large holes and string suspension to create the feeling of a 54% larger sweet spot. Complete your kit with a Prince Tennis Bag!

Tennis Express Reviews
Great new racquet
I was very happy hitting with this new racquet. It is strung with Dunlop Black Widow 17g at 51 pounds. The racquet does produce the enhanced spin as Prince advertises. The multi-sided string helps so much with even better control and spin when really hitting hard, flat strokes. The weight and balance are so nice and the racquet is easy to maneuver around the net. From the baseline, it is very easy to hit deep with good spin.
I was very impressed with this new racquet from Prince. It is very good in all aspects of play with the right string and tension. At the net, it is very maneuverable and packs quite a punch. The groundstrokes are powerful and controlled with the 16X16 open string pattern. The serves are precise and have good pop on them. The weight and balance make this a really good racquet for any moderate level or above player.
I use Prince Premier Power 18g string on my Prince Tour 100T and have experienced much additional power and spin. It makes net play a lot easier. Im really happy with this combination. I finally have a weapon when I get on the tennis court.
Spin & Control
This is a great racquet to add to your bag. Adds a lot of spin enough so that my opponents have complained about it. Not a lot of power here. But its a comfortable racquet with no vibration thats fun to hit with. Good control to maintain long rallys. I like the new grip on this, and find it hard to go back to my other leather type grips. Serves are fast with a lot of top spin to pull them down and in.
Great deal, and a terrific racquet
This racquet is terrific. Despite being a medium-light weight racquet, the control and spin this stick offers is wonderful. Its also extremely comfortable to play with. Its also surprisingly stable as well.
Always easy on the arm and still a huge sweet spot and consistent string bed when strung at the top of the tension range with a thick, low powered crisp poly. A couple of grams of lead at 3 and 9 oclock take the micro flutter out of the frame. Signum Pro Poly Plasma 1.33 works awesome for me and remains playable for a long time for me. Thanks TE for the awesome 12 days of Christmas sale!
