This is a serious racket for serious players produced by one of the best manufacturing companies around.
The Prince 03 Speedport Blue Oversize Racket is the most advanced oversized racket designed for effortless power and control. Its lightweight aerodynamic design and cushion grip handle helps players with moderate to full strokes hit their best shots.
This new racket has been engineered for speed and provides a faster way to more powerful serves, more penetrating ground strokes and crisper volleys. Tested in a wind tunnel Prince 03 rackets move through the air up to 24% faster than traditional rackets due to their sculptured 0-ports.
Former Wimbledon Player Chris Lewis praises the racket saying, "With a power level of 13000 the Prince 03 Speedport is an incredibly light racket with a very even balance and is an effortless racket to play with. Aside from being extremely powerful I also found it offered really good control off the ground once I had got used to the racket's extra range and I had no problem whatsoever hitting a consistent and accurate ball with power to burn."
Lewis went on the say what surprised him was the racket's stability. "Sometimes with very light rackets off-centre shots can be a real problem. Off-centre shots, particularly when playing hart-hitting opponents can knock the racket around in your hand. Not so with the Prince Speedport Blue, there wasn't a hint of racket "wobble" with any of my groundstrokes."
Lewis categorises this racket as best suited for club players with sound ground strokes looking for a little extra power, advanced players who like a combination of power and control or advanced juniors with sound technique looking for some extra "pop."
