Gear Review

This maneuverable racquet scored well in delivering dipping passing shots. Large holes and String Suspension Inserts allow the strings to respond more freely, especially at the frame’s outer edges. The racquet will offer help when players are stretched out wide in defensive positions.

Likes: Offering immense spin production potential, the EXO3 Tour comes in both an open (16 x 18 for more pop) and dense (18 x 20 for more control) string pattern, enabling players to choose the spec that best suits their style of play.

Dislikes: Some serve-and-volley playtesters felt the frame was not as crisp as other Prince frames. Off-center hits near the top of the hoop floated beyond the baseline for some.

Bottom Line: Players who hang back at the baseline and like to trade titanic topspin strokes will feel most comfortable with this stick. It’s a head light frame that performs best for players with full strokes.
