Naw. I've really wanted to see how they hit tho...they look awesome.

I hear they're doing some sort of 'demo-tour' but the few cities they're going to are few in number and I must admit I'm not dsperate enough to hit w. them to drive hours....

*shrugs* I'd look forward to demoing them in the future tho.

I talked to a guy today that demos and writes reviews for racquets.  he said he has the grey and red one in his bags right now, but he has to send them back tomorrow.  He said the grey was was awesome, the red one was a "dog".
Good Luck on the Court!!!

You'd have to pay me to use a Prince.  Never liked them.  Give me a Dunlop anyday.  Although I did like the Prince Graphite that came out around 1985 but never bought one.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

I guess I have not used a Prince since 1995.  I have been using Wilson since then.  I never really think about it much, I just go with what feels good.  Never used a Dunlop.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

I like prince racquets.  I haven't used the latest graphite but my weapons of choice are the triple threat graphites that are 27 inches and 95 head size.  Never liked stretch racquets b/c I like more maneuverability.

Did anyone ever try the Weed?  I am sure that Scott tried weed, but I mean Weed (as in Weed Rackets   ;-() ). I never really liked oversize heads to begin with and then that thing came out.

I love it when someone comes up with a new innovation, as opposed to just making the racquets lighter and lighter.   I mean, golf did the titanium and then graphite progression as well.  This seems a bit more "radical".

I was in a racquetball club over the weekend and the new innovation in those racquets is that 8-10 mains extend all the way down into the handle.  According to the guy working the front desk, that supposedly increases the sweetspot to the 90% range.  Which I thought was pretty cool.
