TENNIS.com Review
By TENNIS.com on April 25, 2011

Playing with the Tour Lite 100 is like hitting against a talented junior who might not look imposing, but surprises you by the end. The EXO3 port holes are positioned on the side of the head—not at the top and bottom, as is the case on the EXO3 Tour 100—so the main strings don't float as much on contact. The double bridge at the bottom of the hoop dampens string vibration and diminishes shock. Play-testers reported the racquet had a more classical feel than they anticipated.

Likes: It's a lightweight racquet that doesn't feel flimsy. The slightly head-heavy frame and open 16 x 19 string pattern is adept at imparting spin for a sub-10 oz. stick, but flat-ball hitters can still wind up and wail on the ball. It’s comfortable and won't strain your arm.

Dislikes: Because of its lighter weight, the racquet did not provide substantial help on off-center hits.

Bottom Line: If you’re a junior looking to transition from a game-improvement frame to a lighter performance frame, or you're an older player who prefers the Prince EXO technology in a lighter stick, the Tour Lite may be the right choice.
