With the Phantom 100G LB, Prince adds another chapter to its storied history of extended-length racquets. Featuring a classic crossbar stabilizer, this racquet's DNA can be traced to Prince's Original Graphite series. With its ultra-thin 16.5-mm shaft and 59 RA stiffness, the Phantom 100G LB offers the outstanding ball feedback of a bygone era. However, the defining feature of this racquet lies not in its great feel, but in its outsized length. At 28 inches long (and packing a beefy 335-RDC swingweight), the Phantom 100G LB demanded a lot from our playtesters. It punished lazy feet and poor preparation, but the upsides were undeniable, especially on swings big enough to leverage its dynamic mass. In addition to providing extra momentum, impressive plow-through and big power on groundstrokes and service returns, the Phantom 100G LB proved to be one of the better serving racquets our team has tested in a while. Although it isn't likely to win over the player who prefers the quick handling of a standard-length racquet, the Phantom 100G LB is hard to resist for those who can unlock its charms.
The next in a long line of Prince longbody player frames. As with all the best true longbody player frames the Phantom 100G LB comes in at 28”. The crossbar design and TeXtreme X Twaron material bring superior stability meaning the player can take advantage of the additional length for punishing heavy groundstrokes.
