Prince Phantom 107G!
Prince! What can you say about the brand that “normalized” over sized racquets!
So, instead of talking about “what was” we will talk about “what is!” And “what is” is exciting, I think! With so many really good tennis racquets to choose from why would you choose a Prince racquet? With this review we will explore the reasons you may want to consider it!
THE PRINCE PHANTOM 107G
If this racquet had a high gloss finish and some green lines instead of the current matt finish you could not tell it from the original Prince Graphite. In other, words it looks terrific.
The beam tapers slightly from about 17.5mm at the top of the grip up to about 21mm at the tip, but by just looking you would say it is a straight beam design. The proportions of the racquet are “classic” and the “torsion bar” in the throat contributes to that classic look.
And speaking of classic, the grip shape and the “torsion resistance system” at the 10 and 2 o’clock positions are classics!
So, take a look at the other specs of this racquet and if you like what you see come by at take it for a “demo”
