The Prince O3 Silver OS is a lightweight racquet best suited for beginner- to intermediate-level players. Due to its comfort and large sweet spot, the Prince O3 Silver OS is also a popular choice for women.
Good power. The Prince O3 Silver OS tennis racquet can more efficiently generate power compared to similar models. This, combined with a very large sweet spot, makes it very well suited for weaker or beginning players. One reviewer on Amazon.com says, "My stroke speed has slowed due to old age but with the Prince 03 Silver tennis [racquet] I have managed to generate increased power with less effort." Some players feel that it may be too strong, causing their shots to be harder to control. This Prince racquet also boasts a very large head (118 square inches) allowing more tolerance if your ball contact is off-center.
Painless. The Prince O3 Silver OS weighs only 9.6 ounces when fully strung. While many users will find this too light, it's perfect for those who have maintained an injury or simply cannot maneuver a heavier racquet. One player on TennisExpress.com recommends it for older women "who no longer hit the ball as powerfully as in the past."
The Prince O3 Silver OS comes pre-strung and some suggest the strings are not up to par, as one Amazon.com customer experienced, "The strings that came with the [racquet] broke after just 4 uses …" This was not often the case, but experienced players still recommend replacing the strings.
