The Prince EXO3 White Lite is a great choice for teens with medium swing speeds and small-framed adults who want to generate the big loopy topspin that the heavier EXO3 White delivers for more muscular players. With its open string pattern, the White Lite will increase their racquet-head speeds to help them achieve spin. Prince has reduced both the stationary weight and swingweight of its regular White model and shifted the balance from head light to head heavy to retain some of the original frame’s power. The rest of the dimensions—beam width, length and head size—are the same in both models. Both also have the EXO3 “energy bridge”: wide, open slots, instead of grommets, at the top, bottom and sides of the frame. These let the strings flex freely on impact to create a slingshot effect that helps launch the ball deep into the opponent’s court.
Bottom Line: The lighter version of the standard White is for small players who want big spin.
A lightweight version of the popular EXO3 White, the EXO3 White Lite offers excellent agility with the punch to finish off points quickly and with authority.
