Description

A new and improved version of the EXO3 Rebel 98, the Prince Tour 98 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 10.9 ounces unstrung, the Tour 98 was constructed with a 12-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.

Check out our blog on ESP racquets to get an in-depth look at the new technology!

Tour 98
3/5
I really liked the control this racquet provided me. The new double bridge technology made it feel pretty comfortable. Im not used to hitting with Prince, because of there port systems it took a little getting used to. Though once I got the hang of things it was a great hit! Recommend for players looking for a little bit more control and spin. Also check out the Prince Warrior Extreme String Pattern ESP!

my elbow wants to thank you
5/5
I have been sidelined from tennis for 8 months with tennis elbow. the problem as it usually does started with a shoulder injury. The last time I played real tennis was representing the US in Senior Davis Cup play in 2013 and that was it. After getting a PRP shot, steroid injections for the shoulder and a lot of PT - I am finally back playing again. Now the hard part - finding a racket that doesnt cause further pain. The new prince is awesome. so soft on the recovering elbow and shoulder. Plays lighter than 11.2, very maneuverable and great access to spin. Even great feel around net despite open pattern. Its no Thunderstick - but boy does it feel good.

Great racquet!
5/5
I love the way this racquet feels upon contact. Nice cushioned feel and takes stress off of my arm. It seems to have a large sweet spot and I love the spin it creates. I feel I have better control with this racquet as well. My husband tried it and liked it so much that he bought one for himself!

5/5
Fantastic racquet by Prince. Tremendous spin, great control, and quick at the net. The only downside to this racquet is with the open string pattern, 16x16, I break a lot of strings. With that in mind, this is my 4th racquet that I am carrying, one more then usual.

Prince 98ESP watch the string
4/5
I like this racket in general. It is very comfortable, it hasnt messed with my elbow at all. It allows for superior spin, like no other racket I have used. Also I notice tremendous power from the baseline on groundies. Vollies are so-so, I am still trying to figure those out with this racket. What I didnt like was what happened with my string. I was very happy with the multifiliment string I was using on my old Head Radical--Isospeed Professional 17. But after I strung the Prince racket new with the same string, then played with it for about 2 days, I noticed the strings were heavily fraying and had lost alot of tension. My next outing, the string broke. I had no idea, but the O-ports on this racket allow for huge string movement when the ball is strick. Multifiliment strings wont work with this racket. They rub against themselves and get shredded. I started using prince tour xp monofiliment. It doesnt break, seems to last forever, but I dont care for the string. I wi

Love this Racquet
5/5
Started playing with this racquet in hopes to add more spin and control. Was looking for a good singles racquet. I am very happy to say this racquet provides. Bought a second way as a back up...Have had three fellow players switch to the Tour 98 ESP recently. The 98 ESP helps absorb pace from big hitters and allows me to swing fully without over powering shot.

a bit too light
4/5
Before this purchase, I had been using the same racquet for more than 20 years, another Prince. I prefer a heavier racquet to a lighter one and this one needs some getting used to because it is lighter than my previous racquet. I will stick with it, but in the future I will be more cognizant of racquet weight.
