Gear Review

A middle-of-the-road swingweight of 320 might lead you to think that the EXO3 White is a bit cumbersome. But we were pleasantly surprised to find that it has swashbuckling maneuverability. Veteran 3.0 playtesters who struggle to hit crosscourt passing shots were thrilled by how effortlessly they were able to angle the ball out of their opponent’s reach at net. Like other Prince frames, the White has a unique stringing system—in this case, wide-open slots that are slightly bigger than the ports on the Black. These holes allow the strings to flex more freely on impact, dampening vibration and expanding the sweet spot into the outer reaches of the string bed for power and control. We also found that the dynamic string bed increases the frame’s spin potential. Armed with the White, players with windshield wiper forehands will be able to hit deep and extremely loopy topspin shots. Note: The White does not come with the option of traditional grommets for more feel.

Bottom Line: The agile White 100 has high spin potential.
