Now that winter has released its icy grip on most of the country, tennis enthusiasts are returning to the courts in droves. But as you practice volleying or a new spin on your backhand, you might discover that your current racquet no longer meets your performance demands. With credit or debit card in hand, hit the pro shops and sports stores to gear up for the summer tennis season.
The Prince 2014 tennis racquet collection offers players both a classic feel and also technology to increase one’s game. Are you an offensive player looking to add more spin to your baseline game? Check out the Premiere Series (115 ESP and Premier 105L ESP), which will give you 30 percent more spin through Prince’s Extreme String Pattern (ESP) technology.
Also included in Prince’s 2014 collection is the LS Series, which encompasses the Tour Series. Both utilize Prince’s patented O3 Technology to bump up a racquet’s sweet spot by 54 percent. The LS Series is available in four head sizes and five different weights and features new cosmetically designed racquets with a focus on performance for club players.
Tennis Magazine saddled Prince with the Editor’s Choice award for Best Spin Frame with the Tour 98 ESP and Tour 100T ESP racquets. Play like Jelena Jankovic, ranked 8th in the world, and snatch up the Red LS 105 with a DuraPro grip and a 105 square inch head. Or take John Isner’s lead and wrap your hands around the Warrior 100 or Tour Pro 100 rackets—both of which he’s using while on tour this season. David Ferrer, who is ranked 3rd in the world, and number one doubles pair Bob and Mike Bryan have taken an interest to the Tour Series, which touts two new frames (Tour 100T and Tour 100) and updated Tour 98 and Tour 95 in the Rebel Series.
After Prince filed for bankruptcy protection in May 2012, their products received a makeover and the company was restructured. After such a success with their latest line of racquets, it would seem that the company’s efforts are paying off. And now you can improve your game with their innovative racquets equipped with new tech.
