The EXO3 Blue is the middle child in Prince’s game-improvement frame family, which includes the Silver 115 and Red 105. Play testers reported that it had the broadest appeal of the trio, providing an agreeable blend of power and precision. Flat-ball hitters were pleased with the frame’s firm response.
Likes: Though it’s an oversized frame, there was no discernable twisting on off-center hits. This is a stable stick that offered more control than some testers anticipated from a 110-square-inch sized head. EXO3 ports with Thermocarbon string suspension inserts provided a larger sweet spot for an arm-friendly frame.
Dislikes: There was some sluggishness getting up on overheads. Some testers felt challenged trying to add rotation to groundstrokes off hard, flat shots hit directly at them.
Bottom Line: Prince provides a power boost without sacrificing control or punishing players’ arms with the EXO3 Blue. It’s an ideal stick for a 3.0 to 3.5 singles player who prefers more string space than an oversized frame offers.
