Final Analysis: The Rebel 2 LS is the latest version in Prince’s Lightspeed Series. True to the series’ name, the Rebel is two ounces lighter than the Prince T-24, making it easier for players to zip around the court. Unique to the Rebel is a Ballistic mesh upper, which keeps the shoe’s weight down and enhances its breathability, as well as a re-engineered Propulsion Plate in the outsole’s midfoot, which Prince claims provides a more efficient heel-to-toe transition. Weartesters found that the Rebel’s light weight and low-profile supported adroit movement; they reported feeling very low and grounded. Because of its feather-like feel, the Rebel 2 LS is ideally suited for match play; players looking for greater stability, comfort and cushioning during more regular workouts, especially on hard courts, would do best to lace up the Prince T-24.
