Description of the Racquet

It’s a miracle…the O3 Black is back exclusively at! The O3 Black came out in the 2006-2007 season and has been one of the best selling O3 racquet’s of all time and we are proud to have it back in stock for a limited time. We were told it could not be made again but kept pushing for it and here it is so get them while you still can. The O3 Black has a “super widebody” frame that adds extra stiffness and stability for more power. We can’t emphasize this enough that if this is your favorite frame or looking for a top notch racquet at an affordable frame get 1,2, or 3 while you still can. This racquet now comes with a wrap grip instead of the vision II so if you want the vision II grip be sure to upgrade!

Here’s 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 … more often. What’s 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 the SS grip size only.

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 it’s 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.
