As a world-renowned manufacturer for tennis equipment, Prince tennis gear is reliable and long-lasting. Prince tennis racquet technology is top-of-the-line, providing ultimate comfort and advantage for all players. Prince has earned its mark with tennis racquet innovation as the first company to produce an oversized and an extended length racquet.
Frame Composition and Shape
TeXtreme TeXtreme Spread Tow woven laminates are developed with a thinner structure and straighter carbon fibers to create a composite material that is 20% lighter in weight with improved stiffness.
Graphite Extreme Prince tennis racquet technology is highlighted using the very best of high modulus graphite/carbon composition available today. Used to increase firmness while maintaining light weight and power. Dense graphite fibers give rackets more reel and the racket is more responsive. The graphite is wrapped around a racquet mold and then baked. At high temperatures the mold melts and runs out leaving only the graphite frame.
Triple Threat with Tungsten The pinnacle of power and precision. That’s Triple Threat with Tungsten. Triple Threat increases racket stability by focusing weight using Titanium-Copper-Carbon in the three critical racket locations: 10 o’clock, 2 o’clock and at the bottom of the handle. By fortifying these critical locations with Tungsten, a strong dense metal, perfect stability is achieved. This unique weighting system provides the highest level of power, precision and comfort ever.
Energy Channel Enhancing the dynamic effects of the Energy BridgeTM, is the patented Energy ChannelTM. Prince tennis racquet technology has created a sculpted groove within the frame that provides added stability, boots ball control and increases spin by up to 25%.
Morhp Beam Morph means change, or blend, from one thing to another. A racket head is normally oval in shape; in some rackets Prince change (or morph) the shape to a more square profile in the throat area of the racket to help prevent twisting of the frame. This helps make the racket more stable, and increases power.
Sweet Spot Expansion System Introduced in 1987, also known as Sweet Spot Suspension. This system allows the string to pass through, and not touch the frame (or grommet), until the outside of the head. This effectively lengthens the string without having to make the head bigger - this enlarges the sweet spot. On impact with the ball, the string can flex more, which also helps to soften the feel and add comfort to the racket.
Extreme String Pattern (ESP) This aggressive string pattern is designed to deliver 30% more spin for higher net clearance, more consistency and deeper shots.
EXO3 Grommets Prince’s patented string suspension technology liberates the string bed for enhanced response and edge-to-edge performance, offering a 54% larger sweet spot. EXO3 grommets are a high-tech, patented design utilizing large holes and String Suspension Inserts to deliver a larger hitting area compared to conventional racquets with the same head size. EXO3 Technology works because the strings are completely liberated from restrictive, response-strangling grommets, allowing the strings to respond more freely - even at the outer edges of the string plane for balls you may hit off-center.
O Port Technology Racket speed is a critical part of playing better tennis. It determines how fast the ball travels and how much spin is placed on the ball. It allows players to hit a wider selection of shots with more precision. Until now, superior racket speed has been achievable by only the best players in the world. Now, all players can experience the benefits of Extra Racket Speed. Prince 03 Speedport offers More Powerful Serves. More Penetrating Groundstrokes. Crisper Volleys. Racket speed has always been an essential part of playing better tennis. It determines how fast the ball travels and how much spin is placed on the ball. It lets players hit a wider selection of shots with greater precision. Until now, superior racket speed was achievable by only the best players in the world. O3 Speedport rackets are up to 24% faster through the air than traditional frames, increasing racket head speed throughout the entire swing pattern.
AIR-O Prince tennis racquet technology brings innovations to all levels of the game. Introducing Air-O Technology. By making use of Prince’s revolutionary O-Port technology, Prince offers all recreational players the opportunity the benefit of a larger sweet spot, improved racket handling and enhanced hitting stability, along with lightweight 7000 series aluminium.The Air-O has giant O-Ports at 3 and 9 o’clock giving the racket more head speed through the air and also increase’s the sweetspot of the racket.
Shaft and Grip
Energy Bridge The revolutionary idea behind EXO3 is the patented Energy BridgeTM, an exo skeletal structure that suspends the string bed from the frame, increasing virtual head size for up to an 83% larger sweet spot. In addition frame vibration is reduced by up to 50%.
Double Bridge Double Bridge technology involves the use of a clear dampener inserted between two parallel graphite bridges reduces string and frame vibration.
