Description of the Racquet

The O3 racquet that started it all is back at Racquetworld.com for a limited time at an amazing price point. The O3 Red came out in 2005-2006 and had been a staple in the line since that day. In 2014 it was discontinued but we fought to bring it back and now itís still available at an amazing price. This racquet now comes with a black wrap grip instead of the vision II so if you want the vision II grip be sure to upgrade!

Hereís what Ektelon says about the O3 technology:

The question everyone asks us is what do all those little "O" ports (as Ektelon calls them) really do for the racquet and more importantly YOUR GAME! Here's what Ektelon says: "By replacing traditional pin-sized string holes with revolutionary giant O-Ports, a super aerodynamic frame has been created with a more responsive stringbed. This increases the sweet spot by 54%, creating a Sweet Zone, which means you hit your best shots Ö more often. Whatís truly impressive is that the Prince engineers are able to do this all without enlarging the racquet head, increasing its length, or adding weight!

If you're unsure about your model or weight...try our DEMO Program.

These are available in SS grip size only.

The factory wristlacer for this racquet is a low quality looped cord, we recommend upgrading to the Black wristlacer for $2.95.

A racquet cover IS NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option to add a cover for $10 if you would like.

RacquetWorld's General Notes

I would recommend changing the grip to a Python (Our favorite), which will be $11.00 installed, for the added traction to prevent slippage.† The Racquetworld Grommet Tape upgrade ($1) can save you $$ in the long run as sometimes strings break from the grommet being worn down.For those who don't know what the grommet is, it's the plastic piece at the top of the racquet that the strings go through.When you hit the wall and floor this gets worn down.

The Python Atlas string upgrade is recommended because factory string is less playable/durable than the Python Atlas string we suggest. At the time of purchase, the Python Atlas restring upgrade is $22.00.† It's normally $36 if you mailed the racquet to us later so you save $14 if you choose the upgrade right away. Another string we highly recommend is the Python Atlas Deluxe restring upgrade ($25.00), and itís a little softer than the original Atlas for those players that prefer a softer string with incredible playability/durability.

If you choose a vibration dampener go with the Python Vibration Dampner (Our favorite), Head Megasorb, Gamma Worm or the BBB (Big Bad Band).

The wristlacer black is the default wrist tether that comes on your racquet at no charge.If you want to change colors, a small fee of $2.95 will be added for switching.

A question we get everyday is "What is Grommet Tape?"It's a piece of tape that goes over the head (bumper) of your racquet. Sometimes you need a restring because of a broken bumper.For an extra buck to add this, it could save you $25-40!!

We get follow up calls/emails everyday thanking us for the upgrades as they really help bring out the performance of the racquet.†

Racquet Covers - Choose one for $10 (RacquetWorld Cover is Only $8.00)

A full racquet cover is NOT provided by the manufacturer with this racquet. You have the option of adding a full cover for $8-10 if you would like. If you want the best cover on the market buy the Racquetworld Cover. It is oversized, has a full outside pocket, a handle strap and a large shoulder strap as well as a ventilated pocket to let your grip breathe and best of all its $2 less than the others because we want to help you by supporting our company! The charge will only be $8.00 when added to the cart for this choice instead of $10.00 like the other covers.
