Prince has some new tennis rackets with amazing technology.  Players such as Maria Sharapova (Black 100) , Gael Monfils (The Rebel 95) and the Bryan Brothers (The Ignite 95) are some of the top players using the newly designed equipment.

Currently of our top touring pros - Maria Sharapova is playing the EXO3 Black and Mike and Bob Bryan are playing the EXO3 Team and Gael Monfils with the EXO3  Rebel 95

After hitting with this new technology of equipment, I can see why more and more pros and tennis players in general are switching.  The combination of power and control with the graphite makes it tougher for your opponent.  These are the best tennis rackets I have ever come across and I talked to the Bryan Brothers who told me they love the rackets.

The rackets I sampled are as follows: All are EXO3

The first two are from the Tour Series. “The Ignite 95 and “The Graphite 100”

 

The Ignite 95 is a classic midsize frame with more weight for extra stability and an open string pattern for more spin and feel. The Ignite 95,with the patented Energy Channel, provides a super stable platform for an all court game. This is the racket of choice by the Bryan Brothers. Enhancing the dynamic effects of the Energy BridgeTM, is the patented Energy ChannelTM, a sculpted groove within the frame that provides added stability, boosts ball control and increases spin by up to 25%.

The Graphite 100- What do you get when you combine the amazing playability of the Prince Original Graphite with 21st century Prince innovation?  The Graphite 100 & 93... a new school racquet with old school attitude. Enhancing the dynamic effects of the Energy BridgeTM, is the patented Energy ChannelTM, a sculpted groove within the frame that provides added stability, boosts ball control and increases spin by up to 25%.

The next generation of racquet design, only from Prince

With Prince’s patented Energy BridgeTM technology, the new EXO3 White 100 offers superior all around performance with power, comfort and control for intermediate to advanced players.  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.
