Description of the Racquet
Ektelon's back at it again with their new EXO3 Black and EXO3 Copper. They went back to the Super Wide Body frame shape which was extremely popular in the O3 Black and incorporated their patented Energy Channel and Energy Bridge technologies to make the most powerful racquets Ektelon has ever produced. The Black is designed for the younger player and starts with a base weight of 170 and can go to 180 with the added plugs. The Copper is designed for the slightly older player and starts with a base weight of 185 and can go to 195 with the added plugs.
This year the Ektelon EXO3 Black and EXO3 Copper are available in 3 grip sizes. The SSR (Super Small Round is designed for the player with a very small hand or one that likes a traditional round handle. T he SS (Super Small) which is the same small grip flat handle that Ektelon has produced for years. The XS (Extra Small) which is the larger grip handle that is designed for the player that wears an XL Glove size or has a larger hand.
"For years, racquet manufacturers have been trying to create a racquet with ultimate power by making larger and stiffer frames, elongating main strings and reducing cross strings in the string bed. All of these methods result in more shock to the arm which can cause injury. With EXO3 technology, we have developed a radical new discovery - a new source of energy which creates ultimate power while reducing shock and improving stability on off center hits.”
EXO3 features The Energy Channel, a radical new frame design which creates elongated open channels located at the 12, 3 and 9 o’clock positions of the frame – which moves the mass to the outer most edges of the frame for exceptional stability. Complementing the Energy ChannelTM of EXO3 is a visible, engineering breakthrough called the Energy BridgeTM. Soft thermoplastic pieces are inserted into the Energy Channel to create an exo-skeletal bridge structure along the outside surface of the frame. The result is a string bed that is almost entirely suspended from the frame itself.

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 Ektelon Silencer (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.
