Prince Tennis Equipment
Prince entered the tennis industry in 1970 with the invention of the “Little Prince” tennis ball machine. Since then they have had a heavy hand in contributing to the advancement of a faster harder sport. All Prince stringing machines and diagnostic centers are designed to be compatible with all four racquet sports: tennis, racquetball, badminton and squash. No special adaptors are needed to sting or evaluate racquets from these different sports.
The Prince 5000 electronic stringing machine
The Prince 5000’s patented quad lock down system secures the racquet in the inside of the hoop, using four extra wide plugs which minimize racquet deformation by uniformly distributes pressure over a larger area. By eliminating the bulky outriggers used by other machines, there is easy access to all racquet holes. All electrical components of the 5000 are easy to access in a removable PC cartridge. Sending the PC unit in for servicing has never been easier. The new versa clamp clamping system includes two unique releasing methods: a gravity based release method which releases the clamp once the clamp shaft reaches the base and a push button release located on the clamp base. The base of the 5000 is easily removable, making this machine convenient in all situations as either a floor model or a tabletop.
The Prince Precision tuning center
The distribution of a racquets weight, swing weight, determines a racquets performance during ball impact. Racquets that have not been properly calibrated cause a player to lose power and control. Pro player customize their racquets for optimal performance on the court. The Prince Precision Racquet Diagnostic center takes the guess work out of racquet tuning by quickly determining the three most crucial characteristics of any racquet: weight, balance and swing weight. A properly weighted racquet increases power and control. Racquet balance determines where the weight is distributed throughout the frame, signaling a head heavy or head light racquet. Testing a racquet’s swing weight determines how a racquet will travel through the air. The lightweight design of this machine makes it easily portable.
The Prince NEOS 1000 stringing machine
The NEOS 1000 stringing machine is Prince’s smallest machine, but it in no way lacks the Prince performance. This machine is designed for easy set up and one person can easily handle the job in under 30 minutes. This is a manual machine, but the clamps are on movable glide bars. This results in a quicker process because there is only one lever to lock, instead of two.
Racquet customizations have never been easier when you own your own tennis racquet stringing machine and a racquet diagnostic center, a winning combination for a more perfect game.
