Prince O3 Review [All models]

Prince O3 Review - Racquet SeriesCaution: this post won’t be like the typical tennis racquet reviews you’d normally see on our site. Instead, we are going to do a Prince O3 review on all the models there are (5 to be precise). There is the Prince O3 Blue LS, Prince O3 White LS, Prince O3 Silver LS, Prince O3 Pink LS, and the Prince O3 Red LS. Although all of these versions utilize the same technology, the biggest differences lie in the varying specifications which are tailored to specific types of players.

If you are interested in the Prince O3 then you might want to read through our Prince O3 review to find out which model is best for you. There is the Silver which is best for beginners/recreational players, the Blue, Red and Pink that intermediate players will enjoy improving with, and the White which is suited for advanced players who prefer control and feel. But before we continue with our Prince O3 review, there’s one necessary question you should be asking yourself first: what type of player are you?

  • O3 Technology

Prince O3 Review - O PortsPrince’s O3 technology refers to the giant O Ports you can find around the racquet’s frame, just take a look at one yourself, they are very hard to miss. While traditional tennis racquets use smaller pin-holes for strings that require you to hit your shots in the center to reap all the benefits of the sweet spot, O3 technology is designed specifically to enlarge the sweet spot by 54% to create a Sweet Zone. This Sweet Zone allows players of all levels to hit their best shots more often, with speed and control a constant factor. That means you are no longer restricted to hitting your shots in only one place anymore (the very center), O3 technology allows you to hit consistent shots from more places around the string bed, no matter if you are just a beginner, on the intermediate level, or an advanced player.

Prince O3 Review - Sweet Zone Technology

O3 technology also creates a more maneuverable and aerodynamic frame, since the giant O Ports provide total string freedom for a livelier response across the entire string bed. O Ports act as ‘wind tunnels’ capable of reducing aerodynamic drag, which allows for 24% faster swings for the aggressive player. This makes it extra beneficial as most of the Prince O3 racquets also sport a light weight (except for the Prince O3 White LS), which only adds to your potential for powerful shots. These racquets are also very easy on the arms as the feel at impact is dampened by the unique properties of the O Ports, giving you a very natural feel. It’s no surprise that Prince centered around O3 technology as its main feature.

  • Tungsten Triple Threat Technology

All Prince O3 racquets also make use of Tungsten Triple Threat technology, which are special weights made by combining tungsten with a triple braid of woven titanium, copper, and carbon together and placing them in three critical locations on the racquet’s frame. These weights can be found at the 10 o’ clock position, 2 o’ clock position, and at the bottom of the handle which help to expand the sweet spot even further while reducing shock to the arm by increasing stability.

Final Thoughts

O3 technology makes for an exciting addition compared to your typical graphite racquet, with its unique dampened feel and amazing comfort. Plus, when’s the last time you said no to a larger sweet spot? That’s right, you probably can’t recall. O3 technology is amazing in that it allows you to hit more of your best shots on a consistent basis, which only helps you to improve and grow more confident on the court. What’s also great is that there is a racquet here for all types of players, whether you are just beginning, on the intermediate level, or an advanced player looking for an advanced racquet. You can even look at the Prince O3 racquets like the belts used in martial arts. You can start off with the Silver, advance to the Blue, Pink, and Red as you improve, and finally get a hold of the coveted Prince O3 White LS to show that you are a master of the game. Actually, we don’t recommend it, just get out there and have fun!
